The next meeting of the General Assembly of the Community Rights Coalition of Jefferson County will be held this Saturday, April 19th, 2014 – 10:00 AM.  Please join us at Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship hall – 2333 San Juan Avenue Port Townsend, WA.  All Friends are Welcome

Various agenda items will be discussed:

  • Upcoming meeting of the Jefferson County Noxious Weed board – they will hold a public hearing on the proposed taxation of county landowners to increase their budget from around $13,000 a year to over $90,000.  They will also ask the county board of commissioners to pay for a consultant to implement the assessment of landowners in the county.  Members of the CRC and Jefferson County Ecological Roadside (JCER) have great concern over the increase of a budget that may pay for more distribution of toxins on our county roads and rights-of-way.  Each year the Noxious Weed board has increased it’s use of chemicals such as glyphosate-based herbicides to destroy unwanted plants.  The hearing will be held on Monday, April 21 at the Jefferson County Library in Port Hadlock located at 620 Cedar Avenue and Ness’s Corner Road in Port Hadlock.  The meeting will start at 5:30 PM.
