San Bernardino County Residents have received their fourth round of

California Fire Protection Bills

 

    Tuesday May 12th, Assemblyman Jay Obernolte (R-Hesperia) announced Vice Chair of the Board of Equalization George Runner will be attending both the Fire Tax Town Hall meetings in Big Bear City and Oak Hills being held on Saturday May 16th.  Senator Sharon Runner (R-Lancaster) will also be attending the Oak Hills Town Hall meeting.  

Assemblyman Obernolte stated, “George Runner has been the leading advocate for repealing the Fire Tax.  I am excited that he will provide constituents with an update on this illegal tax and what they can do to challenge it.” 

The Assemblyman went on to say, “Not a single constituent I have spoken to is in support of the Fire Tax. It is unconscionable that rural property owners are being forced to pay a ‘fee’ that provides no increase in service or direct benefit.”

 “These Town Hall meetings will provide taxpayers with an opportunity to voice their concerns about California’s confusing and controversial Fire Tax,” said Vice Chair George Runner. “I look forward to participating and hope many local residents will be able to join us.”

 “Unfortunately, homeowners in San Bernardino County just received their fourth round of bills and need to know how to combat this burdensome tax,” said Senator Sharon Runner. “I look forward to meeting with my Victor Valley constituents at the Oak Hills Town Hall to discuss their issues and concerns.”

 On Saturday May 16, 2015, two Town Halls will take place in Big Bear City and Oak Hills. The times and locations of the events are listed below and information has also been posted to Assemblyman Obernolte’s website  www.asm.ca.gov/Obernolte).
