click to hear Attorney General hotline

That’s the voice you’ll hear if you call the California Attorney General’s Office and reach the special tip hotline for people who may have information in the matter.  A Sacramento Bee investigative report uncovered a 54-million dollar surplus in the state parks department.  The Bee says 20-million dollars of that money could have been used to avoid park cutbacks and closures.

The hotline number is 916-324-7561.

Nevada County residents contributed funds to keep Malakoff Diggins State Historic Park as well as Bridgeport along the South Yuba River open when State Parks, citing a lack of funds, said the parks here and elsewhere in California faced closing.
