Piepho wraps up her year as head of Board of Supervisors
District 3 Supervisor Mary N. Piepho's yearlong term as chairwoman of the Board of Supervisors expired this week and District 5 Supervisor Federal D. Glover was elected. Chairmen run weekly meetings, have final approval of the agenda and can approve urgency items, remove items, and have items supplemented on the agenda.
In the past year, Piepho's local accomplishments have included a signal and lane reconfiguration at the Stone Valley Road intersection in Alamo; increased California Highway Patrol on Danville Boulevard; and a year-long traffic and speed study on Danville Boulevard to determine an appropriate speed limit. Additionally, her office set aside money to fund a school resource officer at Monte Vista High School.
