Calaveras County Board of Supervisors Meeting Notes – 06/22/2021

by

The Calaveras Board of Supervisors meetings are much more important than you may realize.  One of our members, Janet, has generously been taking detailed notes which gives you a chance to follow along.

This link is from the 6/22/21 meeting.  If you’d like to see the actual meeting, a video is available through the County’s website.  If you’d like to download Janet’s notes, they can be found here: 2021-06-22-bos-meeting-notes

The notes include more of the discussion about various measures/ announcements.  It gives you a better appreciation of the work our Supervisors and County personnel do.

We’ve mainly included the detailed notes here from general interest items like the Public Health Updates.  We list all items on the agenda but often only include the initial paragraph from Janet’s notes.

This meeting had _38_. consent items and three informational items.  Items 42-47 were regular agenda items.

  • Item 42 had to do with acquiring the surplus Railroad Flats school property from the school district
  • Item 43 had to do with Division of Cannabis Control.  There were quite a few public comments
  • Item 44 had to do with recognizing a non-confidential supervisory staff Union (Calaveras Supervisors Union)
  • Item 45 had to do with recognizing a union for management and professional non-confidential staff (Calaveras Management Union)
  • Item 46 had to do with the first steps towards authorizing salaries for certain elected officials.
  • Item 47 had to do with authorizing changes to the position control list (HR)

I refer you to Janet’s notes and the video for additional information.  Watching the whole video will give you complete information and an appreciation for Janet’s willingness to take these extensive notes.

Chair Stopper – I would like to discuss in the future having consent items being pulled by the public if it is going to be abused. Other counties do not allow consent items to be pulled by the public. Would like something in hand or ready if this occurs. Would need a change to board procedures and rules. Would like to keep the public open to pull items but would give the chair the opportunity to not allow if it is being abused. Poll – yes – 5.
