Most of Antioch is now represented by County Supervisor Mary Piepho and she came to town, last month to hold a town hall meeting to get to know our city’s residents and vice-versa.

About 100 people from Antioch and East County attended the meeting at the Antioch Water Park community room at Prewett Park, and heard from the Supervisors as well as representatives of various county departments.

Piepho provided an overview of what the county is doing, as did each of the county staff and then each took questions from the audience.

She stated that her main goals included continuing work on the county budget and on county-wide fire issues.

She also spoke of the state’s early inmate release program which will cost the county $12 million per year, but the state is only providing funding of $4.5 million.

Piepho was happy to announce that the county continues to reduce theunfunded liability in employee pensions. It’s down from $6.2 billion to under $1 billion.

She highlighted the improvements to Vasco Road and the recent funding obtained to widen the Bypass to Sand Creek Road in Brentwood.

Antioch Councilman Gary Agopian who was in attendance said “This was one of the best meetings we’ve had in a long time.”

Piepho’s office is located at 181 Sand Creek Road, Suite L in Brentwood and the office phone number is 240-7260
