Calaveras County Board of Supervisors Meeting Notes – 4/22/2022


A busy meeting.

Taking a short amount of time to read through this page will give you a good overview of what’s happening in our County.  Taking the time to read Janet’s notes will give you a lot more information.


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.

General Public Comment

• Bonnie Newman – from Double Springs – has a petition signed by residents but some are on vacation and one in a rest home. Have a tendency to complain a lot but I try not to do it without having a solution. Discussed sponsoring a litter clean up – from the road to fence line. When I drive from Valley Springs to San Andreas, it looks really bad and the same on the drive to Angels Camp. We should sponsor a countywide litter clean-up three or four times a year so we can keep Calaveras looking beautiful.
