Protecting Local Tehachapi Services— Join the Conversation


Tehachapi is working hard to make sure we can maintain the local services our residents and business rely on- no matter what the State or Federal governments do. 

But we have some tough choices to make. The impacts of COVID and years of Sacramento money grabs have put our future budgets in jeopardy- impacting our ability to provide basic services into the future. As we plan for a continued self-reliant future, it’s important that we hear from you. Feedback we have received from the community so far include priorities such as: 

  •  Maintaining fire protection 
  •   Protecting drinking water 
  •   Preparing for and responding to natural disasters such as earthquakes and wildland fires 
  •   Maintaining local 911 emergency response 
  •   Helping prevent crime 
  •   Helping to maintain local businesses/jobs

In these challenging times, YOUR voice is important! Please take a moment read our Frequently Asked Questions and add your voice and join the conversation by completing a Community Feedback Form today.
