Supervisor Piepho to Host Special/Temporary Event Permitting Meeting


Mary Piepho

Given the recent confusion by some out in Discovery Bay on what permits are required and processes that must be followed, the County and services groups hope to clear the air in the form of a public forum so that both sides are clear on permits and requirements when it comes to future events.

This comes a week after the Brentwood/Discovery Bay Press erroneously accused the Supervisor of cancelling a meeting with the services groups  over her calendar error which proved to be false. In a post by Amanda Dove on her Delta Sun Times website, she stated that the meeting was originally called by the Contra Costa Environmental Health Services Director for Discovery Bay event organizers. She credits Supervisor Piepho with scheduling a similar meeting.

Here is the notice that went out yesterday

On Monday, November 4, 2013 Supervisor Mary Piepho will be hosting a meeting to discuss proper permitting for temporary and special events.

Representatives from the County¹s Department of Conservation and Development, Environmental Health Department, Sheriff¹s Office , Public Works Department and the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District will be on hand to discuss the permit requirements for special and temporary events and answer any questions. The meeting will be held from 3:00-5:00p.m. at the Town of Discovery Bay Community Services District Community Center located at 1601 Discovery Bay Blvd., Discovery Bay, CA, 94505.

Representatives from your organization and the public are encouraged to attend so we can ensure safe and successful events in our communities.

Please feel free to contact me at 925.252.4500 if I can be of any assistance or if you have any questions regarding this upcoming meeting.


  1. Great information, obviously needed by groups. How come we never saw Federal Glover doing anything proactive like this?

  2. Kenji,

    We are “dysfunctional Bay” and a select few have a certain problem with following rules and think they don’t apply to them. How is it everywhere else in the county events can occur without issues but our event planners seem to make the same mistakes over and over?

    To answer your question, there is really no need if people would just follow the directions and rules outlined by the county.

  3. This is getting out of hand. After this meeting, no more “passes” should be given to Discovery Bay on their events after all the wasted tax dollars these service groups have wasted since they can’t seem to follow the rules.

    Be careful what you wish for Discovery Bay. Now that you will understand the rules, no more free passes.

  4. Let the show begin ! Staring Supervisor Mary Piepho with guest stars of only controlled people after getting her permission. What a great way see government at it’s finest. Wait, we do not need government we have Mary. No need to ask the county for anything because it must go through Mary first.This entire thing is just silly. Mary is just like a grade school bully. It shows over and over by her actions. Stop bullying people Supervisor.

      Are you really so civics illiterate that you don’t understand the command structure of County government?

      It’s past time the social leadership in Discovery Bay was told that you don’t organize public events like frat parties. Somebody is going to get hurt or sued. As we have seen by their own statements, when things go wrong the organizers disavow any responsibility. That leaves the County, and all the rest of us on the hook for the deep pockets lawsuit. It almost happened a couple of years ago. There are the near drownings at your paddle fest thing in the summer.

      Grow up and do it right or don’t do it. That’s not too much to ask.

  5. What’s wrong little brother? Someone step on your itty bitty toes? You sound like one of the dimwits that needs special instruction.

    Perhaps you missed it while working your way up at Taco Bell? Supervisors are at the top of the food chain. Guess what Einstein, It works the same way in the county.

    Stop your whining little bro. It makes you look like a cry baby.
