* An agreement is now in place between the County of Del Norte and the Pacific Shores Property Owners Association to help stop illegal dumping of trash in the defuncted subdivision west of Fort Dick. Money for the program comes from special taxes paid by property taxes, and from the sales of tax-defaulted Property Shores lots. Some funds will be used by the owner’s association to clean lots, while the County will use the rest for road cleanup and ongoing monitoring.
