Concerned Clinton citizens pen letter to Cache Creek council
Jessica Lawrence and a number of other concerned citizens in Clinton have drafted a letter to the members of Cache Creek council, stating their support for the continuation of the community’s public pool through a collection of signatures included in the letter.
The letter to council illustrates collective support for the Cache Creek pool and its reasonable lesson rates and flexible hours, noting that it would be “a tragedy to lose such a wonderful facility.” Lawrence plans to distribute the document to council within the week.
