DELGAUDIO Petition -- Enforce "County Sticker" Requirement.

Sign the new petition at Sterlingfest. The "Supervisor Delgaudio" booth will have a petiton asking the board of supervisors to boost the enforcment of county stickers on cars parked in Sterling.

This does not apply to visitors under 30 days or military who serve our nation. But there are hundreds of cars that do not pay their county taxes (DUE, for law abiding taxpayers MONDAY OCT.7 AT THE TREASURERS OFFICE) and it is high time the tax avoiders pay their fair share and leave the burden of government costs on the rest of us. Sign the petition.

DELGAUDIO: "Keep Taxes Low, Privatize Project Fairness"
To keep tax rates low, everybody needs to pay their taxes.

Previuosly I have said "Supervisor Delgaudio supports privatizing Project Fairness, which enforces county decals on cars. "Privatizing Project Fairness is a win-win," said Supervisor Delgaudio, "It reduces the cost of government, eases the burden on taxpayers, and ensures that everyone together shares the real costs of living in Sterling." Please support Supervisor Delgaudio's Proposal, also recommended by the Gov.t. Reform Commisssion, to Privitize Project Fairness by emailing (all 9 supervisors get the message) or signing the petition.

Realtors Call Them "Zombie Houses"
Delgaudio Keeps Eye on Zombies

Quoting Moneyline: "Two growing trends in the U.S. housing market are "vampire" foreclosures, in which the bank has seized a property but the previous owners continue to live there, and "zombie" foreclosures, in which the owners have abandoned the property but still own the title, according to RealtyTrac.

The online foreclosure marketplace said the two phenomena are "monsters threatening the housing recovery."

Of the two, zombie homes are the more unsightly, RealtyTrac said. "Often these homes are more obviously distressed, falling into disrepair with no one to perform regular maintenance and upkeep. As such, they often represent a threat to the quality of the surrounding neighborhood, dragging down home values. (unquote)

In Sterling, it is my practice to contact the lenders through the county and to monitor carefully the "abandoned" houses where there are residents based on neighbors reports and my own observations.

The DMV Sterling Customer Service Center (CSC) has been closed since September 9th until this Thursday October 10th for extensive renovations.

The growth in the Sterling area has increased customer traffic at the CSC beyond the current build-out's capacity. When the office reopens, it will do so with an additional three teller windows (bringing the total to 13), all of which will have the ability to take photos. Additionally, the lobby and testing areas will have increased capacity, and the restrooms will receive upgrades to bring them into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
