I was leaving my assignment at Ontario City Hall this morning when I couldn’t help but notice a change at the Ontario Fire Department — new signage.
I’ll have to ask the chief about that at tonight’s council meeting.
Here it is. What do you think?
City and Omnitrans officials celebrated the opening of the new Ontario Civic Center Transfer Stations.
The transfer stations are part of Ontario’s on-going plan to enhance transportation access for residents and the business community, said Mayor Paul Leon at a ceremony this morning.
The relocation of two stops around the City’s Civic Center provides easy access to City Hall, Ontario Senior Center, Ovitt Family Community Library as well as the University of La Verne Law School adjacent to City Hall.
I’ll have more information on www.dailybulletin.com later on today. Here’s Ontario councilman Alan Wapner boarding an Omnitrans bus this morning.
Paul Vincent Avila has ousted councilwoman Sheila Mautz for a seat on the council. If Avila’s name sounds familiar is because he has long served (and cause issues) as a Ontario-Montclair School District Board of Trustee.
Councilwoman Debra Porada, who had maintained a lead throughout the night, won her reelection bid.
Both Avila and Porada jumped out to an early lead when the initial results were released last night. At one point, less than 650 votes separated Avila and Mautz. As the votes, counted by the San Bernardino County Registrar of Voters, trickled in through the night Avila widen his lead over the incumbent by more than 1,200 votes.
Porada and Mautz were facing opposition from some familiar faces and first-timers.
Avila is no stranger to the race, having run for a spot on the city council previously. Candidates John Lira and Paul Mim Mack, both made a run for a spot on the dais in the last council race. Also vying for a seat on the council were retiree Robert Tippin and Ruben Valencia.
