CHP Officer Joan Griffin listed tips for both auto drivers and motorcycle riders, in support of motorcycle safety awareness.
In community and committee reports, Wonder Valley representative Max Rossi relayed reports that Marines leaving the area are dumping dogs in the desert, leading to marauding packs of dogs in the area. He also noted an increase in graffiti vandalism. Mark Lundquist said that a land use committee meeting next Tuesday morning at the County Building will discuss a formula retail (i.e., chain stores) ordinance. Morongo Valley rep Gayle Swarat said that accumulations of sand on county-maintained roads near Morongo Valley Elementary School was forcing children to walk in the road.
