It was brought to our attention that the Motherlode Fair Grounds is still charging evacuee’s to use hook up’s for their trailer. I was quoted when I called it’s $30.00. Here this county is in a State of Emergency and people need a place to go and if they are now having to worry also about paying for this, when I’m sure if proper paper work is done and turned into the state the Fair Grounds would probably be reimbursed. What are they thinking? There is something wrong with this picture for it was also told me that people can go over to Angels Camp Fairgrounds for free.
I was also told if people didn’t want to pay they had to check in with the Red Cross and be able to use their trailer’s, but without hook ups. Wake up for heaven sake and be there to help these evacuee’s instead of putting more stress on them.
