Calaveras County Board of Supervisors Meeting Notes – 07/12/22

by

Exciting meeting. A lot of consent items (30!) and four regular items.   In the staff announcements, John Osborne discusses the fire status.

If you’ve ever wondered why the Agenda items sometimes start down the list, it’s because we only list the public agenda items.  If you go back to the County’s links for the meetings, you can see any items discussed in the private session (things that legally can’t be discussed in a public meeting).  There are also links for the background materials that were made available to the Supervisors to study before the meeting.  We also include a link to the video so that you can watch the full meeting.
