Save the Jetty Ramp ~ A Moving Letter by Richard Moss’s Dad, Read by Dan Stegnik at GCSD Special Meeting

The Granada Sanitary District was urged on by an emotional letter read by Dan Stegnik. Dan Moss eloquently described how the Jetty Ramp

community was one in which Richard, and many others, thrive.

This meeting was a special public meeting 7/11/19, to read the NEW Save the Jetty Ramp ordinance. Now they have to read it one more time tomorrow night, at their regular meeting. They sped things up by a couple of weeks by having the special meeting last week.

After the ordinance is passed, insurance must be acquired, and signage posted, and a ramp safety inspection (Zack Wormhoudt?!).

Listen as Dan Stegnik reads a moving letter by Richard Moss’s Dan. Lots of tears and love in the room. >>>> Read on
