Supervisor James Ramos
Creates Third District
Morongo Basin Municipal Advisory Council

On June 4, 2013, Supervisor Ramos and the Board of Supervisors created a single nine-member  Morongo Basin Municipal Advisory Council (MAC) for all the unincorporated areas of the Morongo Basin—from Morongo Valley, Landers, Rimrock, Pioneertown, Landers, Flamingo Heights, Yucca Mesa, Joshua Tree, and Wonder Valley with Yucca Valley and Twentynine Palms being excepted.

The formation of the MAC will not result in additional use of discretionary general funding (net county cost).  Third District Supervisorial personnel will manage the activities of the MAC.  Sufficient appropriation to cover the minimal cost of providing staff support to the MAC will be included in the 2013-2014 and subsequent fiscal year recommended budgets for the Third District.

Supervisor Ramos, you are amazing! You have far exceeded the Coalition’s expectations. First the teleconferencing in Joshua Tree, and now the MAC! You listened and responded to us as we expressed our needs to you for an official local legal representative government. Your solutions have made life a lot easier for us in Yucca Mesa to find out what is going on and to provide input relating to our communities.

Finally, we have County government that is promoting the democratic process!

Thank you!
