Riverside County supervisors Tuesday approved the formation of a municipal advisory council in Lakeland Village to keep the county informed about the community's immediate and long-term infrastructure, public safety and public health needs.

"Residents of the Lakeland Village area have expressed a desire that the Board of Supervisors establish a community council for their area," wrote Supervisor Kevin Jeffries, whose First District encompasses the unincorporated community, in a proposal added to the board's policy agenda. "A community council will provide them with a forum where they can advise their supervisor of their concerns and opinions about their community."

Community councils are authorized under state law and exist in numerous locations countywide, including Bermuda Dunes, Indio Hills and Pinyon. The bodies have no governing power, serving mainly to communicate residents' concerns to whichever supervisor represents their area.

Each supervisor is responsible for appointing members.

The Lakeland Village Community Council will be composed of five volunteers, according to Jeffries.

In order to be eligible for an appointment, a prospect must be at least 18 years old, a registered voter and a resident of the locality. An appointee must be available to serve a four-year term, without compensation.

More information is available through Jeffries' office: (951) 955-1010.

don't worry. there's never any hard feeling with me, no matter how down and dirty the debate gets. you kick each other's ass, then dust yourselves off and go have a beer. i don't know how old you are, but, i remember when most of oc was bean and strawberry fields, which acres of orange trees. it was actually a nice place then too. i worked construction most of my life, and i built a lot of those houses. i didn't approve, but, i do really like to eat. by the way, i haven't been back to elsinore in almost ten years, so i imagine that it's even worse now. when i read about riverside drive being backed up from four corners to that new high school, elsinore really isn't much different than the oc.

I lived in Cypress and Anaheim collectively for 30 years. I was happy to leave it behind and shudder when I even have to visit. Elsinore may have done some growing up a little bit but I promise you it's night and day compared to OC my friend. You ought to come visit one day.

Jim, you said, " there's never any hard feeling with me, no matter how down and dirty the debate gets. you kick each other's ass, then dust yourselves off and go have a beer." I agree. People often have differences, but it's silly when people to look for new enemies over new alliances.

sure blues, that is primarily because cypress, and especially anaheim, have a thirty year head start on elsinore. if elsinore continues to go the way that it has been, there won't be any difference. look at the devastation in temecula. forty years ago, there was nothing on the east side of downtown except fields, until you got to the wineries.

joseph, it would truly be a more screwed up world if everyone agreed on everything. there is nothing worse that a kum ba ya circle jerk. life without conflict is like potatoes without salt, but, when the conflict is over, there is no legitimate reason to not be friends, or at least acquaintances. if you can't argue without becoming enemies, it means that you just plain aren't intelligent enough to be debating in the first place
