Big Bear Lake, CA — This week’s meetings include opportunities for the public to comment, one among those being tomorrow afternoon’s Budget Advisory Committee meeting for the Bear Valley Unified School District. In a conversation with the school district’s Superintendent Dr. Nancy Wright earlier this month, she told KBHR, “Because our district has lost approximately $3.5 million, or about 15% in funding, over a period of the last two years, we need some input from our community as we take a look at the budget and what our priorities need to be.” The Budget Advisory Committee, which includes Dr. Wright, will meet at North Shore Elementary School on Thursday, February 18 at 1pm, during which time proposed budget reductions and potential revenue enhancements will be discussed.
At the same time tomorrow, 1pm on the 18th, the Board of Directors for the Big Bear Municipal Water District will receive a report from their Operations Committee concerning kayak rental businesses and marinas on the lake, as initially discussed with public input in October. Those with concerns on this matter are encouraged to provide written or verbal comment during the regular board meeting of the MWD, which takes place at the MWD offices at 40524 Lakeview Drive tomorrow afternoon.
The Planning Commission for the City of Big Bear Lake, which generally meets on first and third Wednesdays, will not be meeting this afternoon. The next regular meeting of the Planning Commission is scheduled for March 3 at 1:15pm in Hofert Hall.
