SAN DIEGO — The San Diego County Board of Supervisors approved a request last week from Fifth District Supervisor Bill Horn to assist civic and nonprofit groups totaling $382,000.
That includes $95,000 to Fallbrook Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) for a new trailer and emergency supplies, $50,000 to Green Oak Ranch for costs associated with the annual Big Band Bash at the Beach event that benefits local charities, $80,000 to Mainly Mozart to cover expenses associated with the “Spotlight Series” and “Mainly Mozart Festival” events, as well as the “District Wide Educational Programs” held throughout North County, and $10,000 to Palomar Mountain Volunteer Fire Department to purchase buckets and applicators of Barricade Fire Gel.
“I’m pleased to reinvest taxpayer money in worthwhile organizations that benefit the citizens and communities of North County,” Supervisor Horn said. “Grants to some of these organizations bring lifesaving services to people in need.”
