The position of local field representative for County Supervisor James Ramos has been vacant since Donna Munoz resigned to become the general manager of the Morongo Valley Community Services District. Dan Stork says that a look at the Supervisors’ meeting agenda for tomorrow reveals that the expected replacement is a familiar face and voice…
On the consent agenda of the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors for Tuesday April 22 is the appointment of a replacement for Donna Munoz as Morongo Basin field representative for Supervisor James Ramos. The designated appointee is Mike Lipsitz, our reporter colleague here at Z107.7. Mike is the honorary mayor of Landers and the chairman of the Morongo Basin Municipal Advisory Council. He is also currently the president of the Morongo Basin Democrats; his term there ends next month, and he is not seeking re-election.
Two other items on the agenda, while they do not directly impact the Morongo Basin, relate to issues of interest here: The County is applying to the California Department of Parks and Recreation for a half-million dollar grant to support Off-Highway Vehicle enforcement in the Barstow-Victor Valley-Twin Peaks areas. Also, the Supervisors are being asked to grant a Conditional Use Permit for a 20-megawatt solar facility in Helendale, denying an appeal against the project from the California Historic Route 66 Association in the process.
The meeting is open to public participation through the interactive video facility at the County government center on Whitefeather Road at 10 a.m.
