San Bernardino Moves Closer To Outsourcing

San Bernardino Moves Closer To Outsourcing

By Hardy L. Brown

With a 4-3 vote, the San Bernardino City Council recently approved to move the city closer to outsourcing fire protection services to the County Fire District. Voting in favor was Virginia Marquez, Fred Shorett, Rikke Van Johnson and Jim Mulvihill. The vote came after a long five-hour presentation and public discussion by council members and concerned voices from the public.

No one from the firefighters ranks came to the podium to address the council, which made me question if this was because none of them live in the city. The mayor asked for all speakers to tell where they lived because the decision is a local citizens issue since they are footing the bill in paying taxes.

It was a great day in the city politics because the council showed good leadership in putting the city financial status on solid ground.
