An emergency regulation to increase conservation practices for all Californians will go into effect shortly. The new conservation regulation targets outdoor urban water use. In some areas of the State, 50 percent or more of daily water use is for lawns and outdoor landscaping. This regulation establishes the minimum level of activity that residents, businesses and water suppliers must meet as the drought deepens and will be in effect for 270 days unless extended or repealed.
Today Officers from Dinuba Police Department served arrest warrants on two individuals in connection with the killing of Eli Villarreal on October 19, 2014. The warrants were issued by the Tulare County Superior Court after a complaint was filed by the Office of the District Attorney charging Anthony Martinez (18 years) and Sage Martinez (16 years) with Murder and Vehicular Manslaughter.
I want to thank the many detectives and members of our department, as well as our District Attorney and his staff for all of their efforts that led to these arrests. I want to once again express my gratitude to the community of Dinuba for its support of the Police Department.

Chicago--The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) is pleased to announce that City of Dinuba, California has received the GFOA's Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for its budget.
The award represents a significant achievement by the entity. It reflects the commitment of the governing body and staff to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting. In order to receive the budget award, the entity had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. These guidelines are designed to assess how well an entity's budget serves as:
- a policy document
- a financial plan
- an operations guide
- a communications device
Budget documents must be rated "proficient" in all four categories, and the fourteen mandatory criteria within those categories, to receive the award. When a Distinguished Budget Presentation Award is granted to an entity, a Certificate of Recognition for Budget Presentation is also presented to the individual or department designated as being primarily responsible for its having achieved the award. This has been presented to Cass Cook, Financial Services Director.

The City of Dinuba is committed to promoting health and safety while also improving the quality of life of its residents. The construction of adequate pedestrian facilities (i.e. sidewalks, curbs and gutters) is one way of working towards that goal. With that in mind, the City Council has directed that the Sidewalk Improvement Program be reinstated effective fiscal year 2013-14. A one-time allocation of $50,000 will be deposited into a revolving fund that will be disbursed pursuant to the guidelines established below.
Water is California's most precious natural resource. How we manage it today will affect nearly every aspect of our future.
When our state enjoys a year of abundant rain and our reservoirs are full, it is easy to think that our water supply is endless. But in California, the next drought may be just around the corner. After three consecutive dry years, California is now experiencing a serious drought. We simply cannot afford to waste any water.
No meetings scheduled at this time.
