Local residents and community leaders will be meeting next month in Independence to kickstart the next leg of the new all-terrain vehicle route system.
Advocates for Access to Public Lands President and Project Leader Dick Noles told the Board of Supervisors Tuesday that there is still a lot of work to be done before the Adventure Trails System is implemented, but, after the Nov. 9 meeting, the public should be involved for the remainder of the planning stages.
With the post office scheduled to close in Darwin, local leaders met Tuesday to discuss how residents in that part of the county will be receiving their mail.
Interim Public Works Director Doug Wilson said the U.S. Postal Service, after deciding to close the post office without so much as notifying the county, decided recently to place a set of cluster mail boxes on a county right-of-way â€“ again, without any conversation with Inyo officials.
What have previously been considered routine budget adjustments and commission recommendations came under careful consideration and close scrutiny Monday as the Bishop City Council works to make every penny count with fewer of them rolling in.
There is an approximate $723,774 deficit between projected expenditures, $9,604,253, and revenues, $8,880,479, for fiscal year 2012-13 and Councilmember David Stottlemyre said heâ€™s afraid the deficit gap could widen as he perceives the revenue forecasts to be too optimistic.
