Rancho Adobe Fire District’s Board of Directors voted unanimously to reduce the proposed tax measure that will appear on the November ballot. At their previous meeting on July 24, the vote to approve split the board apart with a 4-3 tally. At their August 1 meeting the reduced measure won the vote of all seven directors.
History, at least the artifacts and evidence of it, can be found in many unique places. One can visit castles, monuments, libraries and in Rohnert Park even a fitness center. Walk into Stan Bennett’s Fitness Center on Commerce Blvd. anytime during the week and you will see a wall of historic photos, mostly of one very outstanding man-Mr. Jimmy Payne.
Despite protests from property owner representatives in the affected area, Rohnert Park’s City Council voted Tuesday night to pull back its Sphere of Influence and take about 170 acres ripe for annexation between Valley House Drive and East Railroad Avenue west of Petaluma Hill Road.
