YUCCA VALLEY TOWN COUNCIL OKS DUMOSA TRAFFIC SIGNAL, DECLARES PLASTIC BAGS A BLIGHT

The Yucca Valley Town Council met in regular session last night. Managing Editor Tami Roleff says a new traffic signal was approved and plastic bags were called a blight…
After recognizing Shelly Eich, a code compliance officer with the Town, as the Yucca Valley Employee of the Quarter, the Town Council got down to business at last night’s meeting. It approved a resolution to ask the San Bernardino Associated Governments for additional funding to synchronize the traffic signals from Church Street to Camino del Cielo and it awarded a contract for a traffic signal at Dumosa Avenue and the highway, 4 to 1, with Robert Leone dissenting. The council members also heard a report on the county’s emergency management strategic plan. Declaring plastic bags a blight on the desert, the Council voted unanimously to send a letter to Governor Gerry Brown asking that he sign a bill into law that will prohibit single-use carry out bags at large grocery stores by July 1, 2015, and in convenience stores and smaller grocery stores by July 1, 2016.

    “Declaring plastic bags a blight on the desert”,..next lets start running some of the scum bag, dope users, freeloading bums out of the desert…now that is a blight on the desert!!!

    That’s one reason I didn’t buy in certain areas. The closer you get to the stores the more bags you see flying through the desert. It’s not that difficult to use reusable bags. Wash them occasionally. No big deal.
