On behalf of the 9 homeowners just upstream of the Verona Bridge, we want to thank the Board of Directors for listening to the 17 people who presented last night their stories, impact and facts about the past 25 years along the Arroyo. We want to thank the Zone 7 staff who will carry this out, the City of Pleasanton, Congressman Eric Swalwell and his staff, Supervisor Scott Haggerty, the Army Corps of Engineers, all the news agencies and so many more. Julia...thanks for your coverage.

These repairs are the first step in addressing the large scope issue along the Arroyo.

On behalf of the rest of the tax paying property owners, we would like to thank you for being irresponsible, and having enough clout and influence to get us to pay for your negligence.

In your comment, you mention (and admit) that this has been an on-going issue for 25 years, so you obviously knew something would happen some day.

How nice it must be to be able to afford a creekside home, ignore the obvious risks for years and years, take absolutely no strategic prevention measures, and choose to ignore Zone 7's recommendations and warnings to mitigate and minimize your exposure to these occurrences. Then get someone else to pay for the damages!

Thank you also that the rest of us near the Arroyo Mocho have to wait endlessly for the erosion issues to be addressed.

We, as taxpayers should really be thanking you for the opportunity to be of service and to foot the bill!
