The Riverside County Board of Supervisors voted today to help pay the costs of supporting new firestations in Menifee and Wildomar, if those two communities voted to approve cityhood.

This was based on financial analyses conducted by Gary Thompson showing that the two cities would eventually fall into the red if they approved cityhood.

As reported in The Californian today...

Analyses of the communities had found that both would run into financial trouble at some point in their first 10 years if the county didn't contribute some funds to help staff new fire stations.

Those reports prompted supervisors Buster and Jeff Stone to propose that the county give the two communities the money the county expects to save by having them become cities.

This doesn't quite pave the way for cityhood as of yet, though it does remove the first hurdle, and a very big hurdle at that. Basically up next, would be a popular vote by residents of Menifee Valley.
