Last month, the Blue Cut Fire burned through several Cajon Pass communities leaving a wide path of destruction; one of the most costly disasters to strike the county in recent years. To the many residents and property owners who have suffered losses; my offices are available to assist in replacing lost records and provide property tax relief.
For people who have lost vital records such as birth, marriage and death certificates, replacement copies are being provided by the Recorder-Clerk office free of charge.
When requesting free copies of a vital record, victims of the fires should state on the application, “Wildfire,” and complete the sworn statement declaring under penalty of perjury that they are a victim. The application and combined sworn statement must be submitted to complete the request. Click here

Property tax relief is also available to property owners affected by the fire. My staff is conducting field inspections to identify the fire damaged properties and will be reducing values and notifying owners of any reductions made to their assessed valuation. Property owners will find the Disaster Relief Form at: http://www.dev.sbcounty.gov/Uploads/ARC/Forms/ARP033.pdf
