MAC did local residents wrong

I was under the delusion that the introduction of Municipal Advisory Councils (MACs) was to provide the (Placer County) supervisors with a group that helps them learn the general feelings of the local residents in regard to proposed projects; to give them “the sense of their community,” so to speak. Our “MAC” apparently recommended that the board of supervisors approve the Bohemia proposal. Since at every public hearing the nearby residents of the proposed Bohemia project, and the three homeowners’ associations (who even hired a lawyer to protest the thing) have all voiced their strong opposition, the question is, “Who is our MAC representing, anyhow?” Have they confused themselves with hamburger salesmen?
