Community town hall meetings regarding the Rim Fire, took place all week at the Word of Life Fellowship in Mi Wuk Village.
Speakers from of each of these meetings were featured as the KVML “Newsmaker of the Day” including Larry Crabtree, the Interim Fire Chief for the Mi Wuk Sugar Pine Fire Protection District.
According to Crabtree, “These meetings were being held to keep the community as informed as possible. By inviting key leaders and speakers in our community, we can help to dispel any rumors and/or bad information that is out there in the community.”
Speakers included Tuolumne County Supervisor Evan Royce, Tuolumne County Sheriff Jim Mele and Tuolumne County Public Health Officer Dr. Todd Stolp.
No more town hall meetings are planned at this time.
Due to the bad air quality, all Tuolumne County Schools including Columbia Community College have been canceled through Friday. Monday is Labor Day.
The “Newsmaker of the Day” is heard every weekday morning on AM 1450 KVML at 6:45, 7:45 and 8:45am.
