NOT ROSEMOND, CALIFORNIA
Can Rosamond become a city? This question and what steps are required to make it happen were discussed at the Feb. 15th Rosamond Municipal Advisory Council Town Hall meeting. Bill Turpin, executive officer with the Kern County Local Agency formation Commission (LAFCO), discussed with about 60 members of the community what it would take for a community to become an incorporated city. Mr. Turpin said incorporation would only be feasible if a community could afford to provide for basic services - those services now paid for by the county - such things as fire, police, roads, planning, etc. He said that a community would have to generate sufficient tax revenue to pay for such services. Rosamond's retail sales are the primary source of income presently and account for about $1.5 million. "You need $2 million to stand a chance".
