I usually get a weed abatement notice every year. This year I did not receive one. Are they not being mailed out this year because of the pandemic? Thanks!

We have seen some, mostly moonridge, bear city area, couple in BBL but seems sporadic and here and there. Best to go ahead and do what you know needs to be done even without the notice.

I received one back in July for a 20' by 20' area of thin weeds around 10" high. My property is very visible from HWY 189, so make meeting a quota ? Also received one last year for trees being too close together. Many I planted 20 years ago to form a wall from the road.

what did they make you do with the trees too close together? Did they give you the measurement that equals too close?

One thing I wish the county would do, is physically walk around behind the homes/structures!
They tend to drive up and down the road and if the front looks good they will move on, all the while there is a ton of growth behind the house/structure...
Gives the irresponsible owners a pass of which several live near us!

No notice, but the weeds around the house looked bad so had them all cut. Now if the new neighbors would do the same I would rest easier.

In the training/info classes the fire departmen/county recommends for a grown man to not be able to stretch his arms apart and touch two trees at the same time. So baically 6ft is what they have been working with. Then obvously they look at the health of the tree and if overgrown. Have had a number of places that needed to be thinned out because stuff 'grew' over the last 20-30 years. Who would have thought that little 5ft blue spruce christmas tree would end up over 40ft tall

We got a notice - but, not for the weeds. I caught them walking the road during inspection and they were like "Oh yeah, you guys are fine - But the house needs the number repainted to contrast so that we can see it. So we did it that day - knowing that they will look at that on the 2nd walk thru. (catching the guy this year was a godsend - a neighboring property has a ton of trash and weeds - but, because of the fence versus the actual property line - they always think it's our violation. We explained and this was the first year in like - forever,, that we didn't get a weed notice)

I got a text that my ballot was counted! Wahoo! So anyone else who is waiting (after using the drop boxes) it took exactly one week.

Oct 21 : 04:42pm
MtnTeach - the ballot boxes aren’t third party. They are official county elections office drop boxes.

Oct 21 : 04:12pm
Dropped off mines directly at the post office, don't need a 3rd party. Ballottrax worked fine for me!

Oct 21 : 04:09pm
7:30 a.m. Tues - given to mail lady at Crestline Post Office
8:02 a.m. Wed - notified by ballottrax that my ballot had been received by USPS
1:16 p.m. Wed - notified my ballot had been received by SB Registrar of Voters

USPS worked fine!

I dropped my ballot in the dropbox at the Crestline library a couple of weeks ago, it took about a week for ballot tracker to notify me that my ballot had been received and counted.

Yes, I was so politely informed by the Big Bear Postmaster that putting anything in the box outside is no guarantee it will get processed. They even tried to extend that non-responsibility to the box inside the PO. So basically he was telling me my mail no matter where I put it, will maybe get delivered, depending on how the post office feels that day. Amazing.

USFS: Volunteers this past Saturday covered 488 graffiti tags, took out 5 illegal campfire rings and removed 187 pounds of trash along Deep Creek and Hesperia Falls.

The forest partnered with the @MojaveDesertLT and the US Army Corps of Engineers.

Great work volunteers! 🤝 [Click Here]

Sport, I believe the only couple I asked said 4 days but I'll text them and ask again. All were impressed with the tracking service.

I dod, however, use the indoor drop at the Post Office rather than an outside box.

Official Absentee ballot instructs us to go to I dropped mine on 10/17, it was received at the SB County registrar on 10/20.

Oct 21 : 03:19pm
Casadelgado - Did they say how long it took for them to show up as received?

Oct 21 : 03:19pm
Dave - ha ha I don't know why I assumed you dropped them off last Monday! Keep me posted if yours is updated any time soon.

Oct 21 : 02:14pm
We have 3 friends who used the drop box at the Library and they all have been received by the tracking. Dropping ours off tomorrow.

Oct 21 : 01:32pm
We mailed our ballots and got confirmation that they are where they need to be

@Sportyj: No, it was just two days ago.
