Residents of Lucerne Valley and other unincorporated and rural areas in California will be given a temporary reprieve on their fire prevention fees.
The state’s Board of Equalization will delay mailing bills to collect fire prevention fees until fire officials determine who should really pay them.
Cal Fire requested the delay on March 20 after state Board of Equalization Member George Runner called on the state agency to hold off sending the bills, which were scheduled to be mailed April 2.
