• Wednesday is for San Diego’s Ronald McDonald House- keep an eye out for volunteers collecting donations at the intersection of Mast Boulevard and Magnolia Avenue from 6:30 to 9:30 a.m.
More than 1,000 volunteers will be stationed at major intersections throughout San Diego County. The Ronald McDonald House charity offers a range of services– including food, lodging and emotional support– to the families of critically ill or injured children being treated at San Diego-area hospitals.
• San Diego County revenues are expected to rise by about $66 million this fiscal year compared to last, which is significant because property tax revenue has dropped the last couple years, Treasurer-Tax Collector Dan McAllister said today.
Bills are set to be mailed to 978,873 property owners, expected to net the County $5.54 billion, McAllister said.
"We owe this increase to a couple of factors, lower number of appeals and new assessments resulting from change of ownerships or new construction," he said.
The first bill becomes delinquent on Dec. 12.
