In efforts to provide more testing opportunities for San Bernardino County residents, community testing events are being held throughout the county. At these testing events, samples are collected by inserting a swab up the nostril or into the mouth to the throat. These samples are then sent to a laboratory for COVID-19 testing. Events are free of charge and do not require health insurance.
ATTENTION MONTCLAIR BUSINESSES
On May 14, 2020, the County of San Bernardino launched the COVID-Compliant Business Partnership Program to support local small businesses and help ensure ongoing compliance with State and County health orders and direction.
Municipal construction projects undertaken by cities are typically referred to as Capital Projects. These projects include streets, storm drains, sewer lines, park development, landscaping, signals, street lighting, and, in some cases, municipal buildings. Combined, this becomes the City's Capital Improvement Program (CIP). The CIP is approved on an annual basis. Funds are appropriated as part of the City budget process. Project funding may come from any combination of City, state and federal sources including the City’s General Fund, Gas Taxes, Measure I, and grants through various state and federal programs. Certain funding is available on a competitive basis while others are restricted to certain types of projects. For example, the Gas Tax fund can only be used for street related projects. The fund could be used to fund a new street, rehabilitate an existing street, install or repair sidewalks, install traffic signals or work of a similar nature. This fund could not be used to install a sewer line. Likewise, money from the sewer fund cannot be used to construct a new street or install a signal.
