by

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

This link is from the 12/15/21 meeting.  If you’d like to see the actual meeting, a video is available through the County’s website.  If you’d like to download Janet’s notes, they can be found here: 20201215-Calaveras-BOS

We’ve only included the detailed notes here from the Public Health Updates.  We’ve mentioned other items but refer you to Janet’s notes and the video for additional information.  Watching the whole video will give you complete information and an appreciation for Janet’s willingness to take these detailed notes.

  • Proposed zoning map – have access information on their website regarding zoning maps,
    general plans, GIS, etc.
  • Waste Management – effective January 1, 2021, treated wood waste can not go to the
    landfills; has to go to Class 1 landfill and there is only one in the state (Kern County). The fee
    is approximately twenty times the current cost. Waste Management is working on options for
    Calaveras County. Concerned there is potential for this material to be disposed of illegally,
    e.g., burn piles at homes, ditches, side of the road, etc.
