Inyo County Health & Human Services: Become a Foster Parent

Do you know someone interested in becoming a resource family (foster parent)? Inyo County has children in need of a home. Resource Families can provide emergency care, short term care or long term. It's up to the family. We need homes across the county, including in our tribal communities so please share this to local sites. Children come into the system at all are needed not just for young children, but also for adolescents. Our older children, whether coming into care through CPS or through Probation, experience trauma just like the young ones. If you are someone who works well with teens... Even when they are behaving in the "butt-head" way teens do, this may be for you because they still need the structure, safety and love of a home! While the link attached is a couple of years old, it remains relevant.

Please view and call if this is for you or pass it to someone you think would be interested.
Thank you!!

City of Bishop: Waterline Construction - E. Line St., Hanby and First St.


Bishop Construction Update

Construction work is planned on City of Bishop streets during the week of 9 through 13 October. Work will be continuing on a project to construct new waterline on East Line Street between Hanby Avenue and First Street and work will be starting on a project to repave portions of May Street at Fowler Street.

The construction of the waterline will impact traffic on East Line Street near the canal although at most times there should be a lane for traffic in each direction on Line Street. Temporary water shutoffs are necessary for some construction operations and notices of the water shutoffs will normally be distributed two days in advance.

Work on the paving project is expected to start on Tuesday, 10 October, with the construction of concrete gutters on May Street at Rose Street. Work on these gutters will require the partial or total closure of Rose Street. Repaving May Street between Main and Rose will follow the gutter construction. Repaving North Fowler between Line Street and Church Street is expected to be done at the same time as the repaving on May Street.


Equipment, workers, excavations in the street, uneven pavement, and other hidden hazards will require attention, even when work is not underway on these projects. All efforts will be made to maintain access to businesses and to minimize the impacts and restrictions, but drivers, riders, and pedestrians should be cautious, take alternate routes, and be patient.

For more information contact City of Bishop Public Works at or 760-873-8458.
