Inyo IDs areas for solar, wind development

February 24, 2014

County planners will meet Wednesday to discuss the future of solar development in Inyo County and exactly where any new, large-scale solar or wind farms should be located if more developers set their sights on Inyo County.
In the wake of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power proposing a widely unpopular 1,200-acre solar ranch east of U.S. Highway 395 across from Manzanar, the Inyo Planning Department is moving forward with a General Plan amendment that will identify areas of the county that local leaders feel are appropriate for renewable energy development.

Council OKs new water and sewer fee structure

February 24, 2014

Effective July 1, City of Bishop property owners and other ratepayers will see a new water and sewer rate fee schedule that officials believe is simplified and more equitable.
Despite a few protests, the City Council adopted the 2014-19 fee schedule earlier this month, which includes increases in some places and decreases in others. Overall, according to the council, the new structure is the fairest way to charge system users in the absence of meters.
The fee schedule was based on the 2013 Water and Sewer Rate Study initiated last spring.
