…From The Record Searchlight. Supervisors need to help business
I recently had occasion to visit Anselmo Vineyards in Shingletown for my wife’s birthday. We had a wonderful evening, dinner and all.
I’m wondering why the Shasta County Board of Supervisors is giving Reverge Anselmo such a hard time with his operation. The whole operation appears to be first class: beautiful grounds, vineyards and buildings.
This is all new money. I would think the supervisors would welcome the real estate taxes and sales taxes that Anselmo contributes to Shasta County, as well as the employees who care for the vineyards, the cattle, the restaurant and weddings on site.
Why do these supervisors make it so difficult to operate a business in Shasta County? They had no problem approving a shopping mall in Churn Creek Bottom, which the residents rejected.
We need to help small businesses in Shasta County.
