WEEDS GETTING YOU DOWN?
By John Michaels
It’s weed season! In February and March, the two main outdoor jobs are (1) prune and feed roses and all plants that are beginning their bloom, and (2) get a jump start and spray for weeds before they get out of control. The bigger they get the harder to kill! There can be concerns with weed kill chemicals causing cancer, so this year neighbor John Michaels, will try one of these safe homemade weed kill recipes.

GREETINGS FROM YOUR NEW COUNTY SUPERVISOR SUZANNE JONES
By Suzanne Jones
I am happy and privileged to represent East Roseville and Granite Bay on the Placer County Board of Supervisors! Though I am new to the Board of Supervisors, having only been inaugurated in January 2021, I am not new to serving the Placer County Community. I sat on the Placer County Board of Education for 10 years, only just resigning that position before taking this new seat. I have also served on the Granite Bay Municipal Advisory Council and the Older Adult Advisory Commission. I am a member of the CA Bar Association and have served as a Mediator on the Appellate Mediation Program, Court of Appeal, Third Appellate District.
My move up to the Board of Supervisors came about because a group of area residents felt their voices weren’t being heard and that there was a perceived lack of transparency. These residents encouraged me to run and with the help of their grassroots effort we unseated the incumbent. It is my intention to instill a culture of transparency in Governance and maintain open communication with the people I represent.
Placer County is growing! And it’s no wonder because the amenities and lifestyle here make Placer a prime destination. The development that comes with growth is inevitable. It is my goal to give the public the opportunity to have their opinions heard, to be sure development takes place in thoughtful manner and that the character of our communities and our lifestyle is preserved to the maximum extent possible.
I want to hear from you! While I make every effort to know what is happening in my district, I cannot know everything. Be my eyes and ears and do not be afraid to contact my office if there is something in your community that concerns you. You will find my email address and phone number below.
I publish a monthly newsletter in two different venues. The Granite Bay View, which is a free publication mailed monthly to Granite Bay residents graciously gives me space for a monthly column. It’s also available at select area merchants; and I have an electronic newsletter that you can sign up for at Placer.ca.gov.
I am holding informal Town Hall meetings approximately once a month. The atmosphere is casual, no agenda, just an opportunity for people to get to meet each other and discuss issues affecting your neighborhood in an informal atmosphere. If necessary, items we discuss at this venue can be moved up the food chain for future action. Please join us for our next Town Hall at 10:00 AM on March 20th at Hillsborough Park (corner of E. Roseville Parkway and Hillsborough Dr.) Come have some coffee and conversation; We’ll be outdoors, so bring a lawn chair and I will provide the coffee.
Placer County Supervisor, District 4
