Mr. Ramirez wants to know why there are county government vehicles parked in two public parking lots in northeast Bakersfield.
He thinks the cars are targets for vandalism and that taxpayers will have to pay for it.
According to Deanna Cloud with Kern County Mental Health, the vehicles are parked at the county's mental health treatment facility after hours. She says all the cars are under strict surveillance.
Cloud says the department has found camera surveillance to be the most effective way to avoid vandalism.
She adds, taxpayer money is important to the department and they do their best to protect their property.
