The Riverside County 3rd District was part of several actions during the Tuesday, Jan. 17, Board of Supervisors’ meeting.

First, 3rd District Supervisor Chuck Washington was elected vice chair of the board for 2017. He will ascend to chairman next January.

Future construction at two local parks and the Idyllwild Community Center site also were on the agenda.

Unanimously, the board approved the plan to replace water tanks at McCall Park and Lawler Lodge. The new tanks will be compliant with current code and will include earthquake stabilization rings.

Leaks in the tanks were discovered this summer after significant improvements to wells located at each site.

The conditional use permit for ICC is discussed in a separate article.
