David Bradley, owner of Cowboy Corral in Yucca Valley, asks the Yucca Valley Town Council to reconsider its plans for medians on Highway 62 in Old Town.

The Yucca Valley Town Council learned at its meeting last night that the Affordable Health Care Act, also known as “ObamaCare,” will have little to no effect on the Town. The Act requires employers with 50 or more employees to provide health insurance by January 1; the Town only has 34.5 full-time equivalent employees, and already offers a health plan to eligible employees. The Council was advised though, that in three to five years the Health Care Act may have a fiscal impact on the Town.

In public comments, two people spoke against the mandatory spay neuter ordinance for pit bulls, but it was too little, too late, and the ordinance passed its second reading unanimously. The Council also heard public comment against its highway improvement projects that would install medians on the highway in Old Town. Speakers blasted the Town for a lack of communication with businesses that will be affected by the medians that will block access to their driveways.

During staff reports, the Council was advised that the Town is working to keep Antelope Trail open by the Town Hall and the future senior housing project.
