BOCC positions for alternative revenue

“The resolution will lay out the steps to be taken,” Novak said. “There will be plenty of time for additional public input.”

Commissioners have considered a variety of ways to raise additional revenue in a time of declining property values and rising costs associated with the landfill and law enforcement.

Those have included additional gas taxes, increases in bed taxes and service fees.

None have found consensus among at least three commissioners.

Beacon Hill sign

The old Beacon Villa sign at the entrance to Beacon Hill Park Veterans’ Memorial Park finally came down last week, much to the relief of residents (see A5) and District 3 Commissioner Joanna Bryan.

“It was quite a project,” Bryan said. “I’ve had a lot of calls thanking us for bringing that eyesore down.”
