Response to Allegations of Misappropriation of Cannabis Funds ~ By Timothy Lutz County Administrative Officer

San Andreas, CA...A recent article reported on Capital Public Radio, and covered by other media outlets erroneously states that funds tied to the County’s cannabis regulatory program have been misspent by some County Departments, most notably the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Department.





The County believes the cannabis regulatory program fee fund has properly been used to fund the regulatory program costs and the revenue that the County has received through the voter approved Measure C tax, along with other discretionary General Fund revenues, have been properly used to fund any ancillary and non-regulatory program costs incurred. The County continues to update and formalize processes and procedures for the 2016 Cannabis Urgency Ordinance, which will be adopted by the Board of Supervisors where necessary, while a proposed ban ordinance makes its way through the approval process.

In reference to the August 8, 2017 Closed Session item of the Calaveras County Board of Supervisors, we cannot comment on the content of any closed session item, so no further comment will be made.

        No that's sticky, like my 11 foot tall plants.
        But no worries, no illegal immigrates were hired to do any
        trimming, unlike the vineyard owners also paying slave wages, unless you lazy democrats want to work?

            Why would I pay taxes on something I did NOT and do NOT sell?
            Some of us use marijuana as medicine (but I really do hate the feeling it gives me) but I use it at night when I'm home and won't be going out and it works were nothing else ever has.

            PS The plants are beautiful looking before they bud.....but the smell, phew

            Time for the good people to sue the CCA and the BOS (County) for allowing these real damages to continue on and get even worse every day. What has this done to real estate values and our quality of life in this county?

          Why is it that you are still talking about Hillary? Focus on Trump and what is doing to our nation? Finding it hard to say anything positive about him??? Even many of those in the GOP who wanted to give him a chance are now starting to shy away from him and his rhetoric.

            Daily Presidential Tracking Poll

            Thursday, August 10, 2017

            The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 44% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance.

            While the stock markets dipped slightly yesterday, they remain near record highs for the year.

            Unemployment is declining and optimism about job prospects is at its highest level in years.

            Economic confidence in general is also at its highest level in several years.

            Thank you President Trump for keeping your promises.

So the auditor didn't claim funds were misappropriated? Is this like when the same auditor "didn't request a $25,000 per year raise"? Sounds like some people in the county government don't want to hear what the auditor actually says.

    This is not really only the Auditors call. Where the funds from the pot permit fees are spent is in the Urgency Ordinance and also subject to the Supervisors, who approved the Urgency Ordinance and, as they can with any Ordinance, may make changes to it. Besides the fact if there was a mistake in what fund was used to finance the work being done by the sheriff's dept, it is not like the money was stolen by someone, just that the wrong account was billed to pay for it which can be fixed in the bookkeeping....it there really was a mistake made

    You may prefer fox40 then. They are also covering this story. If you're not a fox person then maybe check out the calaveras enterprise, they are all so speaking to the auditor and attempting to talk to the sheriff about it.
    Don't let your marijuana induced myopia fool you into thinking a mis-managed county is a good thing.

        Raid, destroy the plants, seize their property and sell it to cover some of the expenses related.

What is the big deal? Leg the Sheriff do his job with the funds he is given. Why does the Pine Tree care which funds are used to get rid of illegal pot growers Stop trying to stir the pot (pun intended) Pine Tree.

Pot growers pay trimmers between $100-250 tax free cash daily. Maybe if public works paid their roadworkers more than $80 a day, before taxes, insurance, etc. , they would be motivated to work!
