(Best Syndication News) - Three library branches in the City of San Bernardino may be forced to close their doors. While the library locations currently remain open, the San Bernardino City Council proposed keeping the libraries open until March 17, 2013. The extension is to give library officials time to find a way to make the locations sustainable.

Library officials are seeking solutions that may help keep the Howard Rowe Branch, the Paul Villaseñor Branch, and the Dorothy Inghram Branch locations open.

Caughlin Road to get pavement

KKKKKKKJJJJJJJJJJJJ

(Best Syndication News) The County Board of Supervisors (BOS) approved a contract to pave a section of Caughlin Road between Phelan Road and Smoke Tree Road.

It is not unusual that the High Desert is hit by summer and winter flash floods that destroy roads. A portion of Caughlin, which is susceptible to this type of extreme weather, has been a target for improvements. In June we reported that First District Supervisor Brad Mitzelfelt was working on a project to improve drainage along Caughlin Road.

On Tuesday the BOS awarded a contract to pave a one-mile section. “This project will improve access and safety for motorists in the Phelan area, not just with pavement but by eliminating flooding,” Mitzelfelt said.

800,000 California Residents getting billed $150 for Fire Protection Fee

Pile of Money - BSN

(Best Syndication News) - Around 800,000 residents in California will be receiving or have recently received a bill for $150, and some say that the money will do nothing for them except help the state government balance their budget. The tax was called the Fire Protection “Fee,” which has been questioned for fairness because the fee does not give the homeowner any new additional benefit.

The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors and George Runner, State Senator (Ret.), and member of the California State Board of Equalization, have both said this “fee” is not fair and targets residents living in areas that might use the state run fire service.
