One of our members does an excellent job of taking notes on the Calaveras Board of Supervisors meetings. For brevity, I only include general notes and the initial description of the presentation. Reading through the .pdf here is well worthwhile as Janet often collects a tremendous amount of the discussion. Plus the public comments.
I almost always learn something that I care about. For the full detail, I’ve also included the link so that you can watch the whole meeting (& download backup materials, ….). Here’s the link for today’s video where you can watch the full meeting.
As always, an excellent job Janet!bos-meeting-notes-10-18-2022
• Cory Allen – HHSA Director – Governor Newsom sent press release will end state of emergency on February 28, 2023. Will end elements of restrictions, limited information on guidelines now. Appreciate all the efforts from county employees. Still have a mobile van that does testing. Much more information to come and will keep the county posted.

• Supervisor Stopper – attended the hardwood advisory committee on Thursday, a lot of good ideas coming out will take a little more time but will see if we can get it to the BOS by the end of the year.
• Supervisor Tofanelli – will be in Newport Beach for a LAFTCO conference the rest of the week.
• Supervisor Garamendi – Will be in Solano County Wednesday night and Thursday with Golden State Financial and Resources and going to do the deep dive to figure out what is going on.
• Supervisor Callaway – Sunday Vallecito had Vallecito Days and I did some research as I was a speaker. First School District was established by the BOS, special tax of $.5 on a $100 value. In 1871, the BOS had a music festival to raise money to pay off the county debt. As this board goes forward, we might consider having a festival. The history of Calaveras is colorful. The three longest serving supervisors were supervisors at Vallecito – one for over 40 years, Tom Toyon, and myself. Going to an aqua meeting Thursday afternoon hosted by CCWD at the Native Sons. Breast Cancer Wellness at Mark Twain at 10 a.m. on Friday.
• Chair Folendorf – going to try to attend the aqua meeting on Thursday but there is also a Mountain County event that evening as well that I will be attending. Attended a town hall last week with Congressman McClintock. Interesting to hear all the comments. Thank you to my collogues, CAO and County Counsel for a productive workshop last Friday. I look forward to continuing the work.
