Try the same services for the same fees. What a concept.
We must say no to the perpetual devaluation of our dollar. Every time we add new parcel fees or even double them, we feed the monster called inflation. They would have you believe they want to keep pace with inflation. What a can of garbage. They fuel inflation.
In the continuing Riverside County Grand Jury investigations the following deficiencies in Idyllwild Fire were just revealed:
- Failure to monitor expenditures
- Lack of training on the Brown Act
- Late financial annual audits
In fact, the Grand Jury found that the true operating cost is not known for Idyllwild Fire Protection District (IFPD) as it is currently organized.
Now, Idyllwild Fire wants to double parcel taxes in Idyllwild and I suspect Pine Cove.
Only homeowners pay these outrageous service rip-offs, not renters, visitors, or tourists.
Tell IFPD, Riverside County Fire and CAL FIRE to get their houses in order before they double our taxes and offer fewer services. Perhaps they should take the Grand Jury’s advice and figure out what it costs before raising them.
