Calaveras County Board of Supervisors Meeting Notes – 06/21/22

by

Exciting meeting. A lot of consent items and four regular items.   I’ve included more from her notes on the rural broadband (#21) than I normally would — but do read through her notes.

Excellent job Janet!

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.

Staff Announcements

Supervisor Garamendi joined via Zoom.

John Osbourn – Director of Emergency Services – announced an agreement with Hold Your Horses, a type 1 animal evacuation team, where they have agreed to help us during disasters to help with evacuation and management of animals. We have strengthened our ability to assist animals with evacuations.

Action Item – Economic & Community Development (ID # 6721) Receive a presentation regarding the Central Sierra Broadband Roadmap final report and the Golden State Connect Authority activities, and provide direction on the next steps, including but not limited to whether to initiate an invitation to negotiate a program with internet service providers.

Kathy Galino – Economic & Community Development Director – introduced Diane Cruz – Neo Connect Consultant and Barbara Hayes – RCRC.
Diane Cruz – Neo Connect – presented PowerPoint presentation. Please review for detailed information. Discussed areas that are not served with good internet service. Did survey (low response) regarding their internet and what they would be willing to pay for, do they feel they have good service currently, who works from home. The State has set aside money for funding broadband internet per AB/SB 156. Showed several maps on areas that are underserved and areas that have a low internet connection. Underground construction is recommended and can be high due to the cost of the material.
• Recommending putting together private and public partnerships to help with costs. Challenges are low-density areas and terrain. There is a lot of funding available to our county. Recommends the county do RFP to let them know you are serious to get this work done; continue to work with Caltrans, State & PG&E; continue to work with RCRC on regional efforts; county-wide environmental impact study; identify “shovel-ready” projects.
Barbara Hayes – RCRC Chief Economic Developer – presented PowerPoint presentation. Please review for detailed information. RCRC represents 39 rural counties across California. Supervisor Garamendi sits on the board on your behalf. Started as an advocacy organization and also includes innovative programs. Golden State Connect
Authority was formed last year and comprised of 38 counties. Program of works includes broadband Strategic Planning, Capacity Building, Information Sharing; and open access Municipal broadband deployment.
Please review the .pdf notes for additional information
• Kathy Galino – Economic & Community Development Director – the purpose is to give us direction to move forward. Invitation to work with our providers, working with RCRC recommendations, working with our priority projects, want to prioritize things moving forward, potentially pursue the county-wide program, an invitation for bids but doesn’t commit us to anything financially at this point.
