BORON – Kern County Second District Supervisor Zack Scrivner’s field representative Michael Clark visited Boron on the afternoon of April 17 at the Boron branch of the Kern County Library. The visit took place from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. and gave Boron area residents a chance to air their grievances with the district.
Clark was in Boron for a special event at Boron Junior Senior High School before coming to the library to meet with residents concerning issues such as crime, drugs, illegal trash dumping, code compliance, abandon buildings, animal control and other such topics.
Clark stated that he will take the complaints and issues presented to him back to Scrivner’s office so they can get started on addressing the issues.
When asked about whether or not Scrivner’s office will be holding another low cost/no cost spay and neuter clinic here in Boron, Clark replied, “That is certainly a topic which I will address to Supervisor Scrivner”.
According to most residents in the Boron area, they feel that they are being ignored by the county and the district. Many residents are fed up with all the illegal trash dumping, graffiti, lack of law enforcement and other issues pertaining to the area. Unfortunately, Scrivner like the other supervisors, is a busy person; traveling some 4,800 square miles within the district he represents and so it’s up to his field representatives to travel to portions of the district in his place, talk to residents and bring their concerns and issues back to him so they can come to a solution and resolve most if not all of the district concerns.
Clark is usually at the Boron Chamber of Commerce meetings which take place on the second Monday of every month beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Boron Aerospace Museum which is located on Twenty Mule Team Road across from the Espindola Family Grill.
