Calaveras County Board of Supervisors Meeting Notes – 10/12/2021

by

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

This link is from the 10/12/21  meeting.  If you’d like to see the actual meeting, a video is available through the County website.  If you’d like to download Janet’s notes, they can be found here: 20211012-bos-meeting-notes

The notes include more of the discussion about various measures/ announcements and are worth reading through.  We’ve mainly included the detailed notes here from general interest items.  We list all items on the public agenda but often only include the initial paragraph from Janet’s notes.  The County’s link for this meeting includes all of their background information. Please look through Janet’s (excellent) notes or review the video.

Public meeting called to order at 9:00 a.m.
