California state Board of Equalization member George Runner will hold two telephone town-hall meetings this month regarding confusion that has lingered around the controversial Fire Prevention Fee. The first meeting, on Monday, July 15 at 6 p.m., will be for residents of Butte, Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Plumas, Siskiyou, Shasta, and Tehama counties. A week later, on Tuesday July 23 at 6 p.m., a second event will be held for residents of Placer, Sierra, Nevada, and Yuba counties.
“Many of my constituents have expressed concern about the fairness and cost of this new tax,” Runner said. “As their elected taxpayer advocate, it’s important for me to hear their concerns and keep them apprised of the latest developments.”
