YUCCA VALLEY TOWN COUNCIL APPROVES LICENSE PLATE READERS

The Yucca Valley Town Council appointed two new commissioners to the town’s Parks, Rec, and Cultural commission last night: Brad Napientek and Matt Rauch. Their terms will expire January 31, 2019. Managing editor Tami Roleff says the council approved the purchase of automated license plate readers for the Sheriff’s Department…
Automated license plate readers are coming to the Morongo Basin. At last night’s meeting of the Yucca Valley Town Council, Sheriff’s Captain Jeff Joling told the council that the county and Sheriff’s Department worked out a really good deal for the readers. Yucca Valley would get the readers in five patrol cars, along with a fixed location at Highway 62 and State Route 247. Deputies who patrol county areas would also have the readers in five patrol cars, and Joling hopes that Twentynine Palms will also agree to accept the license plate readers; a fixed post would be installed at Adobe Road and Highway 62 in Twentynine Palms. The license plate reader would notify deputies if a stolen car, a vehicle involved in an Amber Alert, or perhaps involved in a crime, was in the vicinity. Joling said the readers would not be used for traffic enforcement or expired registrations. The cost to the town for the first three years would be almost $162,000; after that, it would cost about $20,000 a year. The council unanimously approved the contract.
In other business, the council agreed to allow the Revenue Oversight Commission to make the recommendation to add another detective and Sheriff’s Service Specialist, even though it would cause a delay until January 2018.
The council also continued two items on the agenda: the formation of a community facilities district for Burrtec, and revisions to the town’s employee handbook.
