County Taking Control of Troubled Vets Building

The Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to take control of the Veterans Memorial Building. The Veteran’s Coordinating Council has run the Cabrillo Boulevard property for 15 years, but after unsatisfactory audits and internal power struggles, the supes directed county staff to draft a new oversight plan. Three county properties — the vets building, courthouse space, and a veterans’ building in Lompoc — will be consolidated into one management plan that will start 7/1 and cost approximately $115,000 each year.
