JURUPA VALLEY, Calif. (AP) — A Riverside County city that incorporated only two years ago is planning to dissolve.
Jurupa (Huh-ROO'-puh) Valley leaders tell the Riverside Press Enterprise (http://bit.ly/1ewDRTL ) that they will file in December to begin the disincorporation process, which also requires a city election.
Jurupa Valley and three other Riverside County cities lost a combined $14 million a year in funding two years ago when the California legislature voted to shift funding from vehicle license fees.
Jurupa Valley lost nearly half of its general fund budget two days before it became a city and the 2013 legislative year closed Friday with no action to restore the money.
Leaders in the city of 94,000 say they'll keep fighting in Sacramento to have the money restored — even as they file for dissolution.
