Standing room only at the May 24th Mt Shasta City Council Meeting. On the agenda was the Ordinance restricting cloud seeding and water exportation and the establishment of water rights and rights to a healthy environment. Mt Shastans came out in strong support of local self governance and the right to pure clean water.
A string of well informed, articulate and spirited speakers made the case for the inalienable rights of nature and the opportunity for all citizens of Mt Shasta to unite in a non partisan way for the greater good. The right to local Self-Government is a cornerstone of the democratic principle.
More than 120 communities in the nation have adopted such an Ordinance.
