COFFEE WITH RAMOS PART 3: COURTS, RETAIL AND MENTAL HEALTH

In the final installment on the meeting of Supervisor James Ramos with local media on Monday, reporter Dan Stork reports on responses to questions about court services, retail development guidelines, and mental health services…
When asked about the future of local court services, Ramos said he has been working with county and state officials to bring about a fairer court funding formula. He said that up to now, different counties get different levels of support from the state for their court systems, with San Bernardino County historically getting the short end of the stick. With regard to local standards for retail development, Ramos said that the Specific Community Benefit Plan for Joshua Tree is slated for an update of its 2007 version. Having heard that there is opposition in the Landers area to a Dollar General store announced for that community, Ramos responded that this is another issue subject to regional discussion. He also defended the reassignment of assorted mental health services, while entertaining the idea that old service sites might be utilized by new providers. His chief of staff wondered if better public information on the new service providers is in order.
