   Glancing Back,
Remembering Our Heritage
The San Miguel Resource Connection has taken on the San Miguel History Project and this webpage as its major projects.  It is intended to preserve as much of the San Miguel History as possible and share in a way to encourage others to take an interest and understand the rich heritage of the community.     
This month is  about Doc Murphy who was one of 5 doctors in San Miguel in the late 1880's into early 1900.  He played a very active part in development of the community.

San Miguel Community 
Services District


 Next regular mtg  

May 24
San Miguel Community Services District (SMCSD) is a public entity that is committed to serving the community with water, sewer, fire, and lighting services since 2000.  The Board of Directors are elected officials who have a four-year term.  If you are interested in being actively involved in our San Miguel Community and would like to help make CSD decisionsthe District has an election coming up and forms to become a candidate will be available in August.     The Board meets on the 4th Thursday of the month at 7 PM.
If you live within the San Miguel CSD boundaries, get involved, be knowledgeable about what is going on by attending meetings. You might want to be aware that due to the ongoing rise in costs of delivering water and sewer services to the community and the fact that present rates are not covering present costs, the board is pursuing a rate increase  (which has to meet requirements of Prop. 218)  Here are the dates of 4 different meetings that are available just for the purpose of answering questions and hearing concerns of residents regarding the rate increase. Last two meetings on May 5th.
