Property tax installment is due today

10 percent penalty for late payments


Property taxes are due today.


The first installment is always due on Dec. 10 to Del Norte County. There’s a 10 percent late penalty for payments after that date. 


Property owners should have received their tax bill in October detailing how much is due. Payments can be made by credit card, check or cash to the county.


The second installment will be due no later than April 10. After that, there’s a $10 late fee. There are additional penalties of 1.5 percent per month and a $15 redemption fee attached after June 30 if the taxes remain unpaid.


You can now access your property tax information online at www.dnco.org. Click on “Agencies and Departments” at the top right and then scroll to the Tax Collector’s page. to view information, you will need your parcel number (APN) in order to view each property.


In addition, the county provides a free email service to remind property owners of the Secured Property Tax due dates.


Drill puts fire trucks through maneuvers

More than 50 firefighters train at fairgrounds


Ten fire trucks, 50 volunteer and professional firefighters and hundreds of cones took over the Del Norte County Fairgrounds on Tuesday.


Crescent City Volunteer Fire Department and Crescent City Fire Protection District spent the day driving through an Emergency Vehicle Operations Course (EVOC) made of cones in the fairground parking lot.


“EVOC is sponsored by VFIS (Volunteer Firefighter Insurance Services),” said Crescent City Fire Chief Steve Wakefield. “They insure a large number of volunteer fire departments across the country.”


The necessary training is also fun, said volunteer firefighter Sabrina Pennington.


“It’s challenging,” Pennington said. “You have to drive 200 yards in a straight line and then back up exactly the same way.”
The 200-yard drive was just one of the challenges that firefighters had to navigate.


They had to parallel park, navigate a twisting narrow path and park within set distances of walls designated by cones.


“We want them to drive all the different vehicles,” said Wakefield. “They all have a different feel.”

Ex-prosecutor sues DA, county

Fired attorney claims she was maligned by boss


In December 2005, Karen Olson testified against her boss during a local grand jury investigation.

At the time she was the second-highest-ranking prosecutor in Del Norte County and her superior was District Attorney Mike Riese.

She told the grand jury what she knew about Riese’s handling of a financial elder abuse case in which he dismissed felony charges against the defendants in exchange for more than $400,000 in restitution, $100,000 of which went toward his office’s budget.
