I don't live inbig bear permanently yet however I've been thinking of writing to Rush and the city council voicing my sheer frustration. Ive gotten to the point that I'm tired of being taken advantage of in this situation and I want to get the ball rolling on this. I would like to do a bit of research on these people and see where they really stand on this

Hey guys,
Just got the new news letter from Frank Rush. He mentions the rentals and the tensions it is causing among some in the valley. He mentioned that he would accept suggestions from anyone. Hey, I'm putting in my two cents. Go onto the city of big bear lake website and read it

By the way - -after reading Frank rush's post something really irked me. He said that in July only 7 percent of the people who lived next door to a rental complained and 93 percent did not. I question that number. I'm compiling a letter to him now. Flood the email boxes wth letter people!

MtnGrl, I'll be sending an e-mail also, just as soon as I get my suggestions concisely organized. I question the numbers of STRs Mr. Rush states as I think it's far more than that. No matter what, if any, changes the City makes, it's all going to come down to ENFORCEMENT - - which has been sorely lacking.

Hi BaughHumbug,

Before I send this in to EVERYONE I'm going to have my husband review it. He works for a city and he would know what else to include. I think part of the newsletter is a bunch of horse - (you know what). If you read between the lines very carefully Rush wants to make it look like only a small percentage of people are complaining and most accept rentals.

My gosh, asking for "suggestions"?

There are already a load of regulations, rules and laws on the books which address every single issue we are all having to endure.

Being asked for suggestions is only LIP SERVICE.

Want a suggestion Mr. City Manager? Do your job and stop dancing around the problem..

Re-read, nothing to do about living next door. States that 93% of the vacation rentals recieved ZERO complaints while the remaining 7% of the vacation rentals received at least one complaint. I find those statistics highly suspicious, even before CV19.

I have to agree with statement above about the numbers looking hinky. None of the those numbers look realistic. In any shape or form unless this is Frank's version of Alice in Wonderland.

But maybe this is a sign that the locals are starting to get someone's attention.

We have 3 friends who used the drop box at the Library and they all have been received by the tracking. Dropping ours off tomorrow.

I dropped mine off at the post office yesterday, received confirmation of receipt today from ballottrax (you have to sign up for it and updates come from caballottrax via email at every step of the way). Interested to see how long before it gets delivered to elections office but at least I have documentation.

Dave - I called the elections office and they said to give ours until next Monday before we move forward with “next steps” (whatever that means). Knowing yours was dropped over a week ago and still hasn’t been updated makes me even more worried. Hoping our ballots are not lost!

We deposited ours in the library drop box on Monday. Haven't received notification yet either.

Benny - I wish I would have just used the post office. Had spoken with some people who said to try and limit the impact on PO since already overburdened. Apparently that was bad advice. There are two official drop boxes in Big Bear - apparently they are only picking up every 96 hours. Hopefully I can locate my ballot!

Mailed it from the post office, was scanned in transition and received pretty quick. I would probably just mail it. It should have registered by now, unless they're only emptying that once a week? I didn't think we even had drop boxes up here for that? Really no need with all the post offices.

Has anyone else used the ballot drop boxes in town? I dropped mine at the library a week ago and it’s still not showing up as received at the county office.
