“I would like to thank OC Treasurer-Tax Collector Shari L. Freidenrich for harnessing the flexibility of current state law to waive penalties for our constituents who are unable to pay property taxes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. I have been directly working with her and her office and am pleased with this outcome. Taxpayers unable to pay their property taxes by April 10th because of the COVID-19 pandemic, should be granted every form of relief available.

Assemblywoman Cottie-Petrie Norris Statement Objecting to the Federal Government Using Fairview Development Center for Quarantine Site

COSTA MESA – Assemblywoman Cottie Petrie-Norris (AD-74) has issued the following statement regarding the potential use of Costa Mesa’s Fairview Developmental Center as a treatment center for COVID-19 patients being transferred out of Travis Airforce Base (AFB). 

“My number one priority is the health and safety of our community,” said Petrie-Norris. “We recently learned that the federal government is evaluating a number of potential secondary sites for COVID-19 patients, including the Fairview Developmental Center in Costa Mesa. Given its proximity to a densely populated urban community, I object strongly to the Fairview Developmental Center being selected by federal authorities for this purpose. We urge federal authorities to designate a more appropriate site.”
