(Victor Valley)–The Board of Supervisors voted to move forward with establishing a video conference site at the Joshua Tree District Office of Supervisor Ramos.
At the request of the Board, the County Administrative Office conducted a feasibility study of establishing video conferencing at the Joshua Tree Government Center. The report recommended that the video conferencing site at the Traditional Assistance Department (TAD) in Victorville be relocated to the High Desert Government Center. This will allow the equipment to be used at the Joshua Tree site and eliminate the cost of buying new equipment. The Board voted to move forward with this plan of action.
Supervisor Ramos was pleased with the outcome of the vote. “I would like to thank my colleagues for their support of this item. This decision gives the Morongo Basin residents a true voice in their government.”
In the motion made by Supervisor Ramos, he requested the County Chief Executive Officer be able to execute the operation of both video conferencing centers in the next 90 to 120 days.
Once the system is up and running, residents will be able to participate in the public comment portions of the Board and other government meetings from the Joshua Tree office located at 63665 Twentynine Palms Hwy.
