You are listening to the latest news from Radio Malibu … F-M 99 point 1 K B U U.  ((( time  ))))——

Malibu residents who were burned out in the Woolsey Fire have been moving through the city lan check process to get their blueprints checked. 

Teh city council has voted to use tax funds to pay for that … in the interest of keeping as many residents as possible from moving away.

So far …354 thousand dollars in fees have been waived by the city.

LA County water is also waving fees for some city residents … who would otherwise be on the hook for water tank and pipeline improvements installed in their neighborhoods.

People who live in Los Angeles county are not so lucky … LA County has not decided to waive plan check fees for fire victims.

Some residents say that’s not fair have started a petition drive to try to convince county supervisor Sheila Kuehl to change that policy.

We will check with her office to see what her response is.
