Supervisor Announcements

• Supervisor Callaway – Had a CSAC Board of Directors meeting a week ago, Prop 27 which allows online wagering, CSAC voted to oppose Prop 27. I abstained because I hadn’t discussed it with the BOS. Asking BOS if they want to make a recommendation on this. RCRC is not going to deal with Prop 27. Prop 31 which would prohibit the sale of flavored tobacco. CSAC took a support position on that and I voted to support that because our mental health department supported this. A yes is support to opposing this proposition. Easy smart pay program – can I pay my taxes on a monthly basis instead of twice a year? There is a program now available for all counties to allow our residents to pay taxes monthly.
• Supervisor Garamendi – Art Walk opened in West Point. Railroad Flat community center continues to move forward. RCRC meeting is tonight in Napa.
• Supervisor Tofanelli – meeting with COG and Sheriff re cleaning up highways re programs CalTrans has available. Discussed dump day – one day when the community can throw away anything other than paint, solvents, and chemicals and there is no fee to the community. Proposing to do this sometime in October. Great opportunity for our community to get rid of items without having to pay any fees. All fees are paid by CalTrans. It is called Clean California.
• Supervisor Stopper – had a Solid Waste Taskforce meeting and planning more moving forward. Have a lot of good people on the Taskforce and bringing new and fresh ideas. Central Sierra Economical meeting. Moving forward with surf funds. $5 million planning grant that could move to $40 million plus. Looks like we will be getting this grant. Cert funds – haven’t received yet.
Chair Folendorf – will be attending RCRC. Have some openings on Fish & Wildlife Commission. Encourage folks to put in an application. CCWD is having a town hall in Copper to update the community.
