Measure L: The Hotel Tax - General Information

The Moreno Valley City Council recently voted to place Measure L on the 2016 November ballot for the residents' consideration. Measure L is a hotel tax and is not a tax on residents or local businesses. Because Measure L is not a tax on residents, it would be paid by out-of-town visitors, tourists, and any other persons when they stay at a hotel or motel in Moreno Valley. If approved, Measure L would create a locally-controlled source of funding for vital city services such as police, fire, 9-1-1 emergency response, libraries and street repair. To view a copy of the recent press release visit here or for additional information visit moval.org

Spark of Love
Every year, tens of thousands of children experience Christmas morning with no gifts to open. To bring smiles to the faces of some of these children, firefighters in Moreno Valley, in cooperation with CAL FIRE/Riverside County Fire and KABC Channel 7, host a "Spark of Love Toy Drive."  

Residents that wish to be part of this special event are encouraged to drop off a new, unwrapped toy or sports equipment at any local fire station to support this worthwhile cause.  Donations will be accepted at any of the City's seven fire stations through December 24, 2016:

Safety First! Deep-Fried Turkey Tips
The delicious deep-fried turkey has quickly grown in popularity but safety experts are concerned that backyard chefs may be sacrificing fire safety for good taste.  If you choose to use a turkey fryer, please use the following tips to keep you and your family safe:  
  • Turkey fryers should always be used outdoors- a safe distance from buildings and any other flammable materials.
  • Never use turkey fryers in a garage or on a wooden deck.
  • Make sure they are used on a flat surface to reduce accidental tipping.
  • Never leave a fryer unattended. Most units do not have thermostat controls. If you do not watch the fryer carefully, the oil will continue to heat until it catches fire.
  • Never let children or pets near the fryer even if it is not in use. The oil inside the cooking pot can remain dangerously hot hours after use.
  • To avoid oil spillover, do not overfill the fryer.
  • Use well-insulated potholders or oven mitts when touching pot or lid handles. If possible, wear safety goggles to protect your eyes from oil splatter.
Keep an all-purpose fire extinguisher nearby. Never use water to extinguish a grease fire. If the fire is manageable, use your all-purpose fire extinguisher. If the fire increases, immediately call the fire department for help.
