2016 In Review : WOW...
More people have visited this web page each month than attend any BCC meeting. That suggests BCC has no need for a larger building. Or any building, really.
November 2016 was annual election of BCC Board: there were no nominations and the bylaws were completely ignored , there was no public notice and the same '15 people' elected the same 'gang' who have done nothing to represent residents and community. The local swamp is safe for another year.
