COUNTY SUPERVISORS MEET TOMORROW WITH ITEMS OF LOCAL INTEREST

When the County Board of Supervisors meets tomorrow in San Bernardino, two items of local interest will be up for consideration. They include a
proposed auction of tax-defaulted properties, and a plan to provide security at next month’s King of the Hammers off-road event in Johnson Valley. Here is reporter Mike Lipsitz with more…

Each year the county holds a public auction of tax-defaulted properties — those where property taxes have not been paid in five years or more.
Supervisors are expected to approve a long list of properties, including some in our Morongo Basin, that will go to auction May 12. In other
business, the board will likely approve a five-year agreement to preposition county fire personnel and equipment throughout the week-long King of the Hammers off-road mega-event held in Johnson Valley each February. This year’s event kicks off February 2 with the opening of “Hammertown,” the
pop-up off-road expo, and continue through the King of the Hammers main-event race February 9. Last year’s race drew and estimated 40,000 spectators.

Tomorrow’s 10 a.m. meeting streams online and to the first-floor teleconferencing room in the County Government Center on White Feather Road in Joshua Tree where public comment may be made via live video link.
