LET’S TALK, FRESNO COUNTY
Fresno County supervisors, Perea among them, agreed last week on a plan to spend an extra $13 million. Millions will go toward a new Sheriff’s substation, improved animal control facilities and better offices for the District Attorney.
The City of Fresno has its own responsibilities for law enforcement and animal control.
Remember the days when we talked about city-county consolidation of services? Sure, some bureaucrats might lose turf and power. But the taxpayer and the citizen would win.
There was no talk among the supervisors about consolidation. No one from City Hall showed up to suggest such talk.
Will the next mayor reignite consolidation talks? Or are they gone forever?
