Our thanks to Peter Schroeder, another extraordinary Fair Oaks volunteer, for organizing FOCAP and providing the recap below from their April meeting. While some of the items here deal with topics beyond the Village, I encourage as many of you as possible to note that on June 9th & 10th our Sacramento County Board takes budget requests and everyone is invited to participate. As an unincorporated area of Sacramento County, we sometimes get "forgotten" and this is one of the best times to remind our Supervisor our parks, roads, homeless, etc. need support and money also.
Here’s our 1st FOCAP RECAP - that is, a recap of our most recent meeting…
