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
