Public Service Agencies from the Rim of the World communities have been invited by San Bernardino County Second District Supervisor Janice Rutherford to participate in a council of governments. “The Rim of the World Council of governments (ROWCOG) is a great way to bring the elected leaders of the mountains’ public service agencies together to develop shared solutions to community issues,” Rutherford said. “The mountain communities have consistently proven how much can be accomplished through coordination and collaboration during major wildfires and the ROWCOG aims to extend that strong spirit of cooperation year-round.”
Supervisor Rutherford invited the elected boards of directors of mountain public service agencies to each appoint one of their members to serve on the ROWCOG. The invited agencies include the Running Springs Water and the Running Springs Fire Department, Rim of the World Unified School District, Mountains Community Hospital District, Lake Arrowhead Community Services District, Crestline Lake Arrowhead Water Agency (CLAWA), Crestline Village Water District, Rim of the World Recreation and Park District and the Crestline Sanitation District.
The first meeting will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. on Thursday, July 9 at Rim High School. San Bernardino County Chief Executive Officer Greg Devereaux, Santa Ana Watershed Authority Director Celeste Canto and Beacon Economics Director of Economic Research Jordan Levin are all scheduled to speak at the meeting.
This event is open to the public and residents will have an opportunity to address the council. An agenda will be posted in the high school at least 72 hours prior to the meeting, in accordance with the Brown Act.
