An emergency regulation to increase conservation practices for all Californians will go into effect shortly. The new conservation regulation targets outdoor urban water use. In some areas of the State, 50 percent or more of daily water use is for lawns and outdoor landscaping. This regulation establishes the minimum level of activity that residents, businesses and water suppliers must meet as the drought deepens and will be in effect for 270 days unless extended or repealed.

On Tuesday, February 24, 2015 at about 9:10 pm, officers from the Dinuba Police Department responded to the 1000 block of N. Crawford for a report of a vehicle versus pedestrian/bicyclist traffic collision. Upon arrival, officers found an unresponsive Hispanic male adult laying in the roadway. Dinuba Fire Department/EMT’s arrived on scene and began medical aide. The subject succumbed to his injuries at the scene due to the traffic accident. The driver of the vehicle was contacted on scene and is cooperating with the investigation. Names are being withheld pending proper notification of the family.
Elijah “Eli” Villarreal’s death in October was an incomprehensible tragedy for his family and for our community.
Since then, our police department has devoted several hundred hours to pursuing justice for Eli. We continue to work closely with the Tulare County District Attorney’s Office as well as other allied agencies, including the Department of Justice and the FBI. We have interviewed multiple witnesses, analyzed toxicology and lab reports, processed evidence from the vehicle used in this crime and continue to seek out and follow new leads.
We have kept Eli’s family abreast of our activity, and I am releasing this update today because the community also wants to hear about our progress.
As I’ve said in the past, it’s not a matter of whether a crime was committed – we know there was. But thoroughly sorting through so much circumstantial and forensic evidence takes time, and it’s important for us to continue to diligently work through the details to build our case. Most importantly, we must ensure we get it right.
Bringing Eli’s killer or killers to justice remains our priority.
Thank you for you understanding and support. And if you have any information that might aid our investigation, we strongly encourage you to call Detective John Jobe at 559-591-5911.

Chicago--The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) is pleased to announce that City of Dinuba, California has received the GFOA's Distinguished Budget Presentation Award for its budget.
The award represents a significant achievement by the entity. It reflects the commitment of the governing body and staff to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting. In order to receive the budget award, the entity had to satisfy nationally recognized guidelines for effective budget presentation. These guidelines are designed to assess how well an entity's budget serves as:

- an operations guide
- a communications device
Budget documents must be rated "proficient" in all four categories, and the fourteen mandatory criteria within those categories, to receive the award. When a Distinguished Budget Presentation Award is granted to an entity, a Certificate of Recognition for Budget Presentation is also presented to the individual or department designated as being primarily responsible for its having achieved the award. This has been presented to Cass Cook, Financial Services Director.

Water is California's most precious natural resource. How we manage it today will affect nearly every aspect of our future.
When our state enjoys a year of abundant rain and our reservoirs are full, it is easy to think that our water supply is endless. But in California, the next drought may be just around the corner. After three consecutive dry years, California is now experiencing a serious drought. We simply cannot afford to waste any water.
No meetings scheduled at this time.
