Supervisors To Make First 5 Riverside a County Agency
On Tuesday, Riverside County supervisors unanimously decided to make the First 5 Riverside commission a county department and tasked county CEO Bill Luna with developing a First 5 restructuring plan within 30 days. The move is designed to address the appearance of favoritism for programs run by commission members' own departments and group. First 5 administers proceeds of a state tobacco tax increase to fund early childhood health care and education programs.
