The main takeaway from the meeting can be summed up by this passage from the May 8th Press Release, especially section 2A:
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the City Council of the City of Wildomar as follows:
SECTION 1. High Priority Items for General Fund Revenue
A. Police and Fire Emergency Core Service Levels
B. Building, Safety and Code Enforcement Services
C. Road Repair
D. Quality of Life Services.
E. Animal Control
F. 20% General Fund Reserve
SECTION 2. Other Items
A. The Enforcement of State and County Orders related to COVID-19 is NOT a local priority.

(Which isn't about "profits", it's about everyday people making a living and providing for their families.)

There will be signs up reminding you about social distancing and best practices. You need to make your own informed decisions about your health and the health of your family.
