Today County Supervisors directed County CEO Devereaux and the County’s attorneys to draft a policy for the Board that would prevent a repeat of this incident in which the Board was unaware for several months that the County’s Director of Human Resources had been arrested for and pleaded guilty to agreeing to engage in prostitution. “This morning the Board of Supervisors met with the CEO and had a very frank discussion about the importance of informing the Board of situations that can have a long-lasting effect on the well-being of the County and the people that we represent,” Chairman James Ramos said. “I am very disappointed by the actions that were committed by the Human Resources director,” Chairman Ramos added  “I can assure you that we are working together to bring some resolve to this situation so that we can continue to move forward.” CEO Devereaux stated “I apologize to the Board, the County’s employees, and the people of...

Big Bear, Ca, July 12, 2011, 1:00pm – On July 12th the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors authorized legal counsel to investigate and pursue legal remedies against the state in response to the recent passage and signing of   Assembly Bill X1-29 by Governor Jerry Brown. The bill imposed a “fee” of $150 per inhabitable structure on all parcels of land in the unincorporated mountain areas of California, which includes Big Bear City, Fawnskin, Running Springs, and Crestline areas.  Supervisor Neil Derry, who represents the majority of the San Bernardino mountain communities stretching from Lake Arrowhead to Big Bear, believes this bill is an illegal tax and comes in the wake of the state’s announcement that it would also no longer fund the air supertanker program used to fight wildfires through air drops.  Those who are in the Big Bear City Community Services District area already pay a fee to the CSD for fire protection services.  KBHR will have more information about this issue as it becomes...
