Letter to the Editor: Grand Jury should probe hospital district

This letter is in response to the Sierra Sun story, “TDRPD board: Our job not to handle day-to-day ops,” on Page 1 of last Wednesday’s paper.

I find it interesting that the Nevada County Grand Jury chose to investigate the Truckee-Donner Recreation & Park District — a well-run, popular district — over relatively small matters.

Last year I formally requested the Grand Jury investigate the Tahoe Forest Hospital District regarding the dramatic increase in the Measure C bond assessment. The Grand Jury refused.

The assessment remains essentially the same, even though property values are rising. Perhaps if others contact the Grand Jury on this issue they will reconsider.
