Calaveras County Board of Supervisors Meeting Notes – 3/22/2022


Another great set of notes from Janet on this Board of Supervisors meeting.  Taking the short amount of time to read through this will give you a good overview of what’s happening in our County.bos-meeting-notes-3-22-2022

I edit the notes and comments for brevity on what we post on this web page.  The detailed comments are well worth reading — especially today’s comments on Agenda 4.  Really.  Please read through the notes (or view the video).  This meeting also included a lengthy discussion on (Agenda 20) on various housing programs within the County.

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.
