Bethany, let me agree with your e-presentation this AM by e-chain in Alamo.

Alamo can specify to CCC LAFCo the structure and operations of our city as a proposal of incorporation within the application and election. To effect that result, a majority in Alamo will sign the AIM petition and then specify the application's Incorporation Proposal.

It is a simple answer, as a PLAN, that will determine incorporation for Alamo. I celebrate this result as AIM support and reality for our community.

It is not likely that most would be able to convert their knowledge of incorporation to defined actions that convert AIM petitions and LAFCo applications into acceptable terms of incorporation.

Look at the AIM petition, item 3.b., and then add the sub-section allowable by general law that specifies the city council's obligation to create citizens' commissions and committees for planning of services, structure and operations.

We cannot want what five people, as council members, decide as our future for Alamo. Please make this our city and not some minority's town.
