“It is no easy task being Southern California’s only four-season resort. Not only does our City provide essential services to our residents, we also serve a large visitor base. In fact, our daily population increases by nearly 500% during peak winter days and holidays. With that kind of increase in volume, it is apparent we have to be on top of our game in terms of infrastructure and basic services we provide.” - Mayor Pro Tem Rick Herrick
