Big Bear Lake City Council Meeting Results

Big Bear, CA, February 28, 2012, 3:00pm – The Big Bear Lake City Council, during their regularly scheduled meeting, voted to delay taking a position regarding the proposed rate increase from Bear Valley Electric Service.  Although this item was initially put on the agenda as a consent item it was pulled and tabled for a later date allowing Mayor Bill Jahn who was absent at the meeting to participate in the discussion as well as giving an opportunity for Bear Valley Electric Service to present their position on the proposed increase.  A date when this item will be returned to City Council will be announced later.  The City Council also received a report on the multi-million dollar rebuilding project for the Big Bear Lake Village L area.  Although the City’s Improvement Agency was dismantled as a move to rescue the states budget crisis this was one of the projects that had prior approval.  This project will be completed without additional assessments to property owners.  The project will completely reconstruct the Big Bear Village in four phases beginning on April 2nd and completing perhaps as early as late September.  Construction will include all new streets and related lighting, additional trees, street signs, pavers, two outdoor fire pits, curbs, gutters and sidewalks.  Within each phase of the construction only one section and side of the street will be effected allowing for...

Big Bear Lake City Council To Re-Examine Improvement Agency Bond Issuance

Big Bear Lake, CA, June 17, 2011, noon – In Sacramento the State Legislature adopted a Budget that includes a trailer bill that eliminates redevelopment agencies as we know them today, now the Big Bear Lake City Council will have to re-examine an Improvement Agency bond issuance.  Recently, the Council and Agency had decided to issue approximately $16.5 million in Improvement Agency bonds. This non-City debt would’ve been used to fund public improvement and infrastructure projects throughout the City. The proposed action to eliminate redevelopment agencies will result in these locally generated funds being diverted to the State for other general public purposes and services.  Without those funds generated through the Improvement Agency, the City will not be able to fund the projects as planned. A presentation will be provided at a future Council meeting in which the public is encouraged to attend and take part.  If you cannot attend the meeting in person, watch the Council Meeting on Channel 97 or on-line at www.citybigbearlake.com.
