Water supply, recycling, power outages and crime are among the issues Tim Arnold wants to tackle in his new role on the Morada Municipal Advisory Council.

Arnold was appointed by the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors to fill the vacancy created by Carlton Mills Jr., who was appointed in April of last year.

"He's an extremely bright man," MAC chairman Jerry Hermann said of Arnold. "He's questioned me in the past on certain things. He was a little concerned on traffic out here; some of the (vehicles) here are too fast."

The Municipal Advisory Council is an elected board that conducts monthly meetings, discusses Morada-based issues and makes recommendations to county officials.

Arnold, a 22-year Morada resident, said he was concerned about the city of Stockton's plans during the past decade to expand its boundaries and risk using up more of Morada's water supply. Other concerns include power outages because power lines are too close to the trees, he said, and residential burglaries.

One way to reduce power outages is to move utility lines underground, Arnold said.

Arnold said he became interested in serving on the MAC because he's known Hermann and former MAC member Bill Fields.

Arnold works at Core-Mark, a Sacramento-based food distributor. If you buy food at convenience stores, college campuses or at supermarket cafes in San Joaquin County, the Delta or foothills, chances are Core-Mark provided the food, Arnold said.

Arnold's first meeting as a Morada MAC member will be at 7 p.m. Feb. 14 at the Waterloo-Morada fire station, 6925 E. Foppiano Road at Ashley Lane.
