Sustaining community relations amid COVID pandemic
Garrison Commander Col. Charles Bell hosts quarterly Community Relations Working Group meetings with civilian and military leaders from state to local levels to foster good relations between military and civilian leaders, discuss issues and potential partnerships. During the December 10, 2020, meeting, military leaders briefed King City Mayor Mike LeBarre (pictured), San Miguel general manager Rob Roberson and Paso Robles Community Development Director on their COVID-19 posture and protocols, and discussed issues such as cooperation with local airports to support potential mass civil support operations, the transportation of training units from airports to installations, and affordable housing. The robust conversations generated interest from all parties to continue dialogue for potential Intergovernmental Support Agreements (IGSAs) and other topics.
