Another Cannabis Centric Meeting On Tap For Calaveras Supervisors Tomorrow (Click BOS Photo For Link To Live Stream)

San Andreas, CA....(Results of today's meeting are that none of the agenda items passed. The approach will be to have open public discussion on the proposed ordinance will begin the the next few weeks.) The Calaveras County Board of Supervisors will be back in session tomorrow at 10am for a meeting on whether to adopt a resolution to provide further guidance for this season. Agenda highlights are as follows: Adopt a Resolution to 1) Dissolve the Cannabis Ad Hoc Committee; 2) Adopt the position of Cannabis Control Coordinator; 3) Receive a report from the County Administrative Officer on the Cannabis Control Coordinator and feedback from impacted Departments; and 4) Reaffirm the Board of Supervisors priorities pertaining to the effective and timely implementation of the provisions within the May 10, 2016 Urgency Ordinance, particularly in regard to the processing of cannabis grower permits and abatement of illegal cannabis grows within the County.

DISCUSSION/SUMMARY:
The Board of Supervisors voted to establish a Cannabis Ad Hoc Committee at their regular meeting on March 14, 2017, appointing District 2 Supervisor Jack Garamendi and District 4 Supervisor Dennis Mills as the Board representatives on the committee. Following the Committee’s review of the current challenges with the effective implementation of the May 10, 2016 Urgency Ordinance, it is recommended that the following be implemented immediately.

1) The Cannabis Ad Hoc Advisory Committee should be dissolved. Rather than rely on the committee to garner public feedback, it is the recommendation of the committee that the matter be brought back to the full Board of Supervisors.

2) The position of Cannabis Control Coordinator should be established. The Coordinator will serve as a single point of contact to the Board of Supervisors and County Departments for the administration of the May 10, 2016 Urgency Ordinance. The Coordinator will be responsible for providing progress updates at every meeting of the Board of Supervisors, identifying obstacles to quickly and effectively implement the Urgency Ordinance, identifying communication and coordination issues impacting the Departments that are implementing the Urgency Ordinance and ensure the timely and efficient execution of the Urgency Ordinance. The Coordinator will have the ability, working through existing County policy, to contract with outside agencies and contractors to ensure the goals of the Board are quickly and thoroughly executed. The position will be established effective May 1, 2017, expiring December 31, 2017, unless extended by the Board of Supervisors through additional action.

3) Reaffirm the Board of Supervisors’ priorities in regard to the regulation of cannabis in the County under the May 10, 2016 Urgency Ordinance. The Board has expressed concerns in regard to the substantial delay in reviewing and approving or denying all grower permits that have been submitted under the Urgency Ordinance. Additionally, there has
been sizable delays in abating and cleaning up of illegal cannabis grow sites. The Board is thus reaffirming its desire to see a significant increase in permit processing and abatement efforts within the cannabis program. The Board would like to see the abatement of all illegal grows during the 2017 growing and harvesting season.

The County Administrative Office is recommending that the Cannabis Control Coordinator’s duties be clarified to include a full cost analysis of all expenditures related to the cannabis program to date, as previously requested by the Board on the January 31, 2017 meeting. Additionally, the Coordinator should take the primary lead in finishing the development of a permanent ordinance regarding cannabis in Calaveras County; though this process, the Coordinator can gather both Department and community feedback and host study sessions to develop final recommendations on any permanent ordinance for the County. The Coordinator should also liaison closely with the Tax Collector in an effort to help ensure timely mailing of tax bills and receipt of tax revenues in regard to the November 2016 voter approved Measure C sales tax on cannabis. The County Administrative Office is recommending a salary range or contracted rate of $110,614 to $148,241, to be consistent with other municipalities that have similar positions.

FINANCING:
The funding for this position would be borne entirely from the cannabis grower permit registration fees. There is no General Fund impact. Should a permanent ban be adopted by the Board of Supervisors and the registration fees be returned to applicants, the Board would have the option to terminate the contract or utilize General Fund for the remainder of the contract term.

ALTERNATIVES:
The Board could not adopt the Cannabis Control Coordinator position and instead reaffirm the Board’s priorities regarding cannabis grows in the County and direct County Departments to work expeditiously through the 2017 growing season to complete the permitting process and abate all illegal grows in the County. Department Heads could be asked to appear before the Board at each meeting to report on the progress toward these goals.

WHEREAS, where County resources are insufficient to accomplish full abatement of illegal or unpermitted cannabis grows, there are funds available to hire contractors to assist in the abatement efforts; and

WHEREAS, the Cannabis Ad Hoc Committee is recommending that the committee be dissolved and cannabis-related matters be brought back to the Board of Supervisors, Calaveras County.
NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Board of Supervisors, Calaveras County, establishes the position of Cannabis Control Coordinator, for an effective term of May 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017, with a compensation amount between $110,614 and $148,241; and

8 month position?

That's a huge salary for 7 months... That can't be right but then it doesn't say anything about pro-rating the salary.

        Well done BoS! You are moving in the right direction with the new controller! Collect the tax due and cut down all illegal grows especially if the growers are bad neighbors or are a nuisance to others. Quiet enjoyment in and around one's home is a right and law

            Actually they dont need to rot in jail. It is just a code compliance issue now that 64 passed and all will just have to deal with it. Many of these problems that revolve around pot are the foolish people who cause issues with their neighbors and think nothing will happen... Wrong. Especially when they have senior citizens who deserve respect but get rude behavior instead. Regulation that is strict is the only way the county can control what is going on. All who say Ban or arrest are just not being real

      If Edson were appointed, he'd be collecting two pay checks, one big one from the county and one from the growers and grower tips.
      Don't even jest about Edson being a czar, he already thinks he one, unofficially.

    Why did you show Pompus Cliff's picture? WTF did he do besides help get us into this mess. He had no balls to stand up for what is right, kept putting regulation and enforcemnet off, and led us into this morass we are now in. Now he preaches for togetherness and working on controlling things. What a disgrace to the community. And the bad part is, many people drank his kool aid. Go away Cliff, go make a shirtty omelet. You are disgusting and most of us can see right through you slimeball.

    Salaries quoted often are weighted wage so include all items, including worker comp, insurance, vacation and sick leave etc so this may not be what the person gets in wages. However, since this would be on the level with dept heads, that listed amount is about what they get in many cases.

      we should ban everyone in calaveras county who doesn't understand how government works. that includes people (like you, precious) who think the national guard can be called in to stop the evil growers, as well as every one of our five supervisors, with maybe a probation period for oliviera as he seems to be actually trying at least. good grief, what a circus.

        The county made me put a 30 foot stretch of black top from the road to my rock driveway before they would approve my property for a home, what the heck do they make these dope growers do? Their places have such a ugly variety of fences, junk everywhere, odors, noise, tons of foot and vehicle traffic often going over others properties. They pollute, shoot recklessly, use way too much water, let their dogs run all over other properties and often have very unusual people coming around looking they them. I often wonder about the very short visits from some of their guests? Are property taxes current on all the grow sites? What about multiple RV's, what is that all about. Many of these people did not have permanent structure homes prior to the fire but now have multiple RV's on the properties, if I did that I would be run out of town.

It appears the BOS is stalling so the illegal growers can do more damage, kill more people, Rob more people, trash our county and get another years grow. FNG LOVELY!

      You would think that Jack would be more of a seasoned politician with his father being a Congressman.

The incompetence displayed by not one, not two, but ALL FIVE of our elected local representatives disturbs me to no end. What a painful ordeal to watch, I needed several marijuanas to get me through it in fact.

The bloggers on this issue ought to do a little research whether they are pro or con. Denouncing others does not make you correct, moral or intelligent. If you cannot make a constructive comment on the issue, just hang it up. If your experience or research can be useful, let’s hear it. Just be civil and polite. Thanks if you do.

    If your beautiful home was surrounded by growers who throw trash everywhere, shoot guns 24/7, clear cut the forest so all you see is their operations, destroy your private road..... you would have a few foul words to say also.

    The growers destroying our community are neither thoughtful or polite. They have no regard for anything but their grows. Why do those affected by their operations need to just sit back and be quiet?

                  Perhaps Ollie should sign up for a class at Avery Middle School regarding civics.........He cannot make it through a meeting without calling for a break and conferring with county counsel about how to conduct the meeting.........Maybe that's how they do things in Danville.

          Pot growers earn their money from cutting down beautiful forests, using the ground as a trash can, destroying private roads, and leaving toxic waste at schools. That's dirty money!

              Jack G was lied to and politically played by the deceiver Mills. Mills signed the report submitted from last meeting but then turned coat and stated he had nothing to do with it. He could have provided his report at the same time but would be open to discussion and public comment. He changed that by sneaking in during this meeting with his report which prevented any public comment and threw Jack G. under the bus. He is a lying manipulator with bad intentions and is not as smart as he thinks. He just got over on another board member instead of working together to solve a problem

            Cut down the outdoor gardens which have had growers remove trees etc. I agree but not all are bad guys and Indoor in Industrial zoned space has never come up as a problem. Those guys are professional. No outdoor gardens. Arrest CAZ and Bulger because they submitted applications, were approved, have good attorneys and follow the law. Hell just lock all people up. Yes Mills I am talking to you. You seem like a reincarnated camp guard from the german concentration camps

              The commercial grows are all about greed how much money can be made. Those that grow pot/dope have fallen off the morality horse for money. Its become a fu!!ing joke that these people one a former supervisor have jumped on the band wagon to make some money. All you flatlanders that have moved up here to grow pot/dope can head back to the cities you came from and grow your pot/dope there...........
