County officials play hard-to-get with Los Osos document

The 1,000 page document, relating to the Los Osos sewer project, only became available after some residents angrily complained to the board of supervisors.
However, there is only one copy and it can only be examined during regular business hours at county offices.
There have been numerous requests asking that the document be posted on-line, but Paavo Ogren, county Public Works Director, says he hasn’t done so because it would take staff time and money. Though when asked by a reporter, Ogren could not indicate how much money would be needed, nor how much staff time would be required to post the document.
