Alpine County Sheriff's Office
Preliminary Application Comments
On behalf of CORVA and myself, I would like to support the grant application submitted by the Alpine County Sheriff's Office.
The application shows a good balance between OHV opportunities existent in the county and the amount of funding requested, and it is clear that the Sheriff's Office supports OHV recreation in Alpine County.
Alpine County is in a situation similar to many rural counties in California - no significant tax base, and many visitors that need services. Since many of these visitors engage in OHV recreation, it is both appropriate and necessary to support a grant that will result in safer recreation, protection of wilderness areas, and increased services for OHV visitors. And as a Jeep owner myself, I completely support the purchase of a Jeep to enable greater access to the back-country. [Amy Granat - 4/4/09]
