Patrons at several local businesses will notice a new charge added to their bills starting this week. Labeled “1% for Ojai,” the charge is a program that aims to raise funds, little by little, for the Ojai Valley Land Conservancy (OVLC). Participating businesses add
1 percent to their customers’ bills, and those funds go back to the OVLC for the preservation of wild spaces across the Ojai Valley. Customers can opt out if they wish, OVLC noted.
