Calaveras County Board Of Supervisors Special Meeting January 31st & Cannabis Study Session

San Andreas,CA...The Calaveras County Board of Supervisors is holding a regular meeting on Tuesday, January 31st at 9:00 a.m. On the agenda is the discussion of a cannabis study from the Planning Department that hight lights the back round, the fiscal impacts and enforcement issues surrounding cannabis cultivation in Calaveras. The Measure C tax would not be collected if there is no registration process for commercial cultivation. Based on the numbers of applications (737), the average cultivation canopy area (15,427 sq. ft.) and an estimate of how many registration applications are likely to be approved (one-third to one-half), the potential revenue for the County would be $7.58 to $11.37 million annually.

The meeting will take place at the Board Of Supervisors Chambers located at 891 Mountain Ranch Road, San Andreas. A copy of the complete agenda is attached below for viewing:

    How does one "murder steel"? Is it really illegal to kill an inanimate object? That is an interesting extension to legal philosophy.

              The reality is that Calaveras wouldn't be in this position if most other county governments had also allowed for commercial grows, which would have spread them out instead of concentrated them in one place. Of course, the immediate availability of a number of freshly cleared lots due to the Butte Fire was the other driving factor.

What I cannot figure out is why the supervisors are wasting money and staff time on this subject right now since in May the whole thing could be ended if the ban passed. Why not wait and see how the public votes and then do study sessions etc if the ban does not pass

    If they let it expire this county is open to more influx and no regulation to control what is here.

The Urgency Ordinance will not be extended because Supervisors Mills and Clapp will vote no because that is what the majority of their constituents want.

    Not sure the UO won't be extended until at least the ban vote. Not sure the new BoS isn't trying to find the middle of the road so as not to have to refund all those registration fees, and lose the tax income from 2016 grows (for approved registrants).
    I personally plan on taking a list of recommendations to the BoS, delivering to the clerk and reading them out loud for all to hear.
    I don't think a ban will work. I do believe we can have 'small' medical grows (like a max of 5000 sq ft and some max number of plants) enclosed (like the tube structures) in rural residential zones and get along.
    Lots of creative options. Public should come up with ideas and submit them to the BoS on the 31st.

    Clapp and Mills are trying to criminalize the growers. It's not right and no wonder why most pro-regulation people aren't speaking out to them or in public. The banners don't have to worry about being labeled criminals by the Supervisors. The comments made by some of the Supervisors (Mills and Clapp) during last week's meeting were very unprofessional. Those two really thinks they're something special.

Marijuana is legal in California

Do any of you hill billy hicks read, marijuana is legal in California and you can grow 6 plants and the county can't prevent it. Let's grow and tax it because you can't grow much else in this rocky clay soil besides the climate is perfect for marijuana.

    Are you out of your mind!? Growers are going to grow legal or not. If we legalize growing then we have some control over what goes into our ground and in turn into our water. Don't you think the "legal" growers will turn in the illegal ones. And our current Supervisors haven't got a clue. We just put back into office what we had in the past and we didn't like it then! Really? Repeat? Nothing in this county is going to change. Is that better? I think not.

            Three of the board members are imbicles! Did you hear their retarded opinions. They have zero clue. Let's put all that money that has been made over the past 20years into making them poorer than they have ever been. Fire all the new county workers and lay many more of them off. No measure C taxes for you. Cops' pay will be lowered to 10 bucks an hour. Let's make Calaveras broken again! Find ways to recall and sue the sh%t out of the county. Expose corruption in corrupt departments. Give a real reason to be angry. Hire private investigators to dig up all the dirt on all the departments and expose the crime. There is all kinds of money around, let's hit them where it hurts and take this sh^&ty government back and give it to the people. Expose those leaders that abuse the elderly. If they can't be trusted with the elderly, why should we think they give a hoot about the younger generation that is well on it's way to ruling the world? Hit them where it hurts and hit them hard.

                Well said, perhaps the voters should look in to Supervisor Clapp's legal issues or the fact that Tofanelli doesn't even have a business in this county, his interests are all based in San Joaquin county where he owns a business and purchases all his personal items as well. Way to go "Stockton Gary". And as for Mills just read the Sheriff's reports to follow his family. Stockton Gary and his two puppets have just done their best to bankrupt our county.

                    We have at leat three incomps in charge. This is sadly what we deserve. We voted them in. We are to blame. We are not very intelligent. Another 20 years, and we may have a chance. Many will die of old age, before that can happen. It's only a matter of time.
