Doorknob Delivery Service in Discovery Bay COVER STORY

In a small town, it’s just nice to know who delivers your newspaper. Starting this month, The Delta Sun Times will begin our trial run of hand-delivery service to every doorknob in the 94505 zip code. This free delivery will be provided by a trusted teenager who lives in your neighborhood and, who will place your bagged copy of the Delta Sun Times on your front doorknob, rather than in your mailbox via USPS. The new approach will put the latest issue in your hands the

same day the newspaper prints. It will also give you an accountable, neighborhood resource for the Delta Sun Times, should you need additional copies. It’s more personal and more community- focused, and that’s the Discovery Bay way! The Delta Sun Times team takes pride in being the only community newspaper printed and delivered to every home and business, and we are very much interested in your feedback on this trial run! Please, email us at : deltasuntimes@gmail.com

ECCFPD MOVES FORWARD TO POSSIBLE COUNTY ANNEXATION PUBLIC SAFETY

feasibility study report is an important step in the county’s move to more effective fire and emergency services,” said Fire Chief Bryan Craig, Rodeo-Hercules Fire Protection District. “Their understanding of the long-term needs of our communities will be instrumental in the eventual adoption of this important initiative.” The feasibility study was co-sponsored by Contra Costa Fire Protection District, East Contra Costa Fire Protection District, and Rodeo-Hercules Fire Protection District. It was undertaken late last year in an effort by the participating fire jurisdictions to examine the feasibility of combining two, or all three, fire agencies. In its 200-plus pages and associated appendices, the feasibility study lays out the case for the consolidation of the three fire jurisdictions addressed. Chief among its findings and recommendations is that East Contra Costa, Rodeo-Hercules, and Con Fire should move forward with annexation, based on its analysis citing annexation would increase both the effectiveness and efficiency of the service delivery system and efficiency of the administrative functions. Other recommendations included that the three districts should adopt substantially similar resolutions initiating the reorganization and that the agencies coordinate with the Contra Costa Local Agency Formation Committee (LAFCo) prior to consideration of the reorganization application. Additional feasibility study recommendations were that standardized training programs specific to special team response be developed as part of any annexation actions. Also, the agencies should develop a balanced training program across all agencies, determining a training philosophy and standardized program that meets the communities’ needs. As the individual fire boards of directors take up discussions and possible actions on the study’s findings and recommendations, each organization is conducting a variety of public outreach and comment activities for its residents.

[EAST CONTRA COSTA] - The Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors, acting as the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District Board of Directors, received an overview of a recently completed Fire District Annexation Feasibility Study on July 21, 2021, culminating a series of similar presentations from the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District (ECCFPD) and Rodeo-Hercules Fire Protection District (RHFPD) governing boards. Each fire district board now has the responsibility to consider the findings and recommendations and make their individual determinations for the correct courses of action for the communities their organization serves. Fire chiefs from the three cooperating fire agencies entered into the study in order to assess the financial and operational viability of annexations that might lead to more efficient, effective, and better-integrated fire and emergency services across the communities of Contra Costa County currently served by each district. “This is an exciting day for ECCFPD and the residents of East Contra Costa County, said Supervisor Diane Burgis. Our actions today, and the decision by the ECCFPD governing board to continue to work with Con Fire is a long-awaited opportunity to form a regional sustainable solution to providing the level of fire service that our communities need and deserve.” “Last year, along with our fire partners East Contra Costa Fire and Rodeo-Hercules Fire, we initiated an important feasibility study to determine the potential benefits of annexing either, or both, of these districts into Con Fire,” said Lewis Broschard, fire chief, Contra Costa County Fire Protection District. “These possible annexations have long been informally considered and this formal study, presented to our Board of Directors this week for their consideration and action, now gives us hard data to base decisions on relative to providing improved fire, rescue, and emergency medical services to much of the county.” “With the acceptance of the AP Triton

Study, the annexation discussions between East Contra Costa Fire and Con Fire are one step closer to approval,” said Brian Helmick, fire chief, East Contra Costa Fire Protection District. “The next step in this process will be for our staff to work with Con Fire staff to create a draft resolution for the boards to consider for approval at their regular scheduled August board meetings.” Helmick added, “Our fire board and staff thank the Con Fire board and staff for the continued effort and collaboration through this discussion.” “The Fire Board’s acceptance of the

LOCAL HISTORY

NEW STATE BUDGET TO BOOST RESTORATION OF MARSH HOUSE

The effort to restore the home of Cali- fornia’s first doctor has gotten a much- needed infusion. The 7,000 square-foot sandstone mansion built in 1856 by Dr. John Marsh in what is now Brentwood, will receive $1.4 million for construction and resto- ration after Sen. Steve Glazer (D-Contra Costa) helped secure the funding as part of the state’s new budget. “Given the house’s standing in our local history and the rich archeological composition surrounding it, restoring this treasure will be a huge benefit to students, nature lovers, and history buffs from throughout the region,” Glazer said. Contra Costa District III Supervisor Di- ane Burgis, a long-time advocate of the house, helped make Glazer aware of the importance of the site. The house is the centerpiece of the yet-to-open Marsh Creek State Historic Park, which is also rich with the history of Native Ameri- cans who once inhabited the area and archaeological deposits that date back thousands of years. A planned trail sys- tem and other recreational opportuni- ties, as well as the natural resources pre- served in the 3,700-acre park, will be a big benefit to the public, and to the stu- dents at the new Los Medanos College extension located next door.

statehood has taken a giant leap.” Following the news, The Trust has launched a new effort to match the state’s investment. “The Trust looks for- ward to working with California State Parks and local government agencies to bring about this shared vision,” Marges- son said. “We’re ecstatic!” said Trust Board Member Rick Lemyre. “The Stone House has languished too long, not only in the shadow of Mount Diablo but in the shadows of history. This money will not only help preserve an iconic struc- ture and the history of the man who built it but to celebrate and learn from the cultures of the Native American and Hispanic people who once lived in the Marsh Creek State Historic Park as well. Many thanks to Sen. Glazer and Super- visor Burgis for helping to make this happen!” Marsh, a Harvard graduate, arrived in Southern California in 1835 and be- came the first to practice Western medi- cine in what was then the Mexican ter- ritory known as Alta California. In 1853 he moved north and became the future Contra Costa County’s first resident of Anglo-European descent when he es- tablished his Rancho Los Meganos. Marsh was murdered in 1856 by dis- gruntled employees near Martinez.

“There are so many opportunities for the community to take advantage of all the park has to offer,” Burgis said. “A lot of kids think that history happened somewhere else, but a lot happened, right here in our backyard, too.” The John Marsh Historic Trust, which has worked for more than 20 years to stabilize and restore the house, hails the funding as “a game-changer,” said President Barry Margesson. “Trust’s dream of a fully restored Marsh house serving as East County’s premier site for the public to explore and relive the Ran- cho era leading up to the Gold Rush and
