      It's due not be long a female president is still canidate to become our president. Just not Hillary becuase of neglected emails so on. Not all women. We need some day perhaps a woman president. Poor Hillary pretty much blew it. There's still a chance. These are seperate issues sherrifs supervisors are different topics of interest compared to presidential ellctions. Please keep them seperated. Besides Merita already was a district supervisor. Its a person desicion not sex type decision.
      Please mind my typos I busy setting up my office in a nother room. I don't have time to proofread or edit.

Hillary had not done that in ages, she's a lesbian and I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that but maybe if she were a straight wife, Bill would not of become involved with a lawsuit, Jeffroy Epstein, sex slave, pedophile, sexual harrasment, adultery, lying under oath, impeachment....oh wait, nevermind, that family is corrupt to the bone.

Terrible program
Posted on: 2018-04-03 18:53:52   By: Anonymous
 
Who set this up? The first question is absolutely stupid and did not need to be asked at all. I am imagining the whole thing to be just as as much of a waste of time as the first question. I will not be wasting hours of my evening trying to get through it. Shame there is no fast forward. Hopefully Calaveras Community TV will put it on so I can fast forward through anymore stupid questions.

Langan needs to explain his connections to Dennis Mills
Posted on: 2018-04-03 19:37:22   By: Anonymous
 
1. Ed Langan was paid $1800 by the Campaign to Elect Supervisor Mills

2. Supervisor Mills has over the last year actively campaigned against Supervisor Oliveira’s re-election.

3. Ed langan and Dennis Mills have both parroted Jack Cox in their campaign materials.

4. It is against the law for public officials to use public resources for their own personal political ends.

    Jack Cox's post on the calaveras enterprise,
    "Copperopolis, California
    Calaveras County is not broke and is in excellent financial condition. We don't have to fight bad policy (Pot Growing) by paying for it with legalization. It is a crime to grow pot in this county under the ordnance. Can you think of any other crime we seek to legalize to cover its enforcement costs. The facts are:

    o County is AA Bond rated with dedicated reserves and investments exceeding many other counties similar in size.
    o This is a testament to our sound fiscal policies despite Butte Fire cleanup, tree mortality, and storm damage."

    Dennis Mills’ reply to his recall
    “Calaveras County is not broke, we are AA Bond rated with dedicated reserves and investments exceeding many other counties of similar size.”

    Dennis mills’ comment on his YouTube video:
    “3. Our county doesn't need pot money to survive. We have AA Rated bonds, more than a $100 million in the bank, and many positions in our government unfilled. No county that has banned pot has gone bankrupt. On top of all of that it is extremely expensive to regulate and they have provide at last estimate about $900,000 to our treasury.”

    Ed Langans campaign brochure:
    “Our county is in a far better scal position than most rural counties our size. We currently operate with a $150 million dollar budget, and hold similar funds in managed investments and reserves.
    Calaveras County carries a AA bond rating.“

      Calaveras County has a potential of being the most broke if we the people allow Meth heads and Marijuana grower plantations to take over.Our water supply is Sacrid so is Sacrid Geonetry of how our families got here do to unpassable roads and in great respect for the Donner family got here that safety issues are crucial. We lose valuable ones. Laughing about Hillary in order to intimidate when vehicular accidents are announced to warn others as well as Cows and packed snow are worse than Brick walls!!! D.P.S.

        Merita made no sense of "regulation" and could not answer as to why growers who have already paid fees cannot seem to comply with environmental laws. She wants to fill pot holes, stop barking dog and shop local as a fiscal strategy to bring Arnold out of its 21-22 year downward spiral she caused with PD? We can't even repair a building or put up a sign because Planned Development is so constrictive. She is a good community volunteer. She cannot lead us forward.

    Glad to see you were at Planning yesterday to hear the problems we have with staff making executive decisions and creating policy as the result of which they are not authorized to do. That is why I brought up the issue in one appeal before the board that the actual application was processed on July 7th, not June 30 as required under the UO.

    On the economic front, two major developers in the Copperopolis area have stated they will not move forward with their projects until the General Plan is completed and we have banned this activity. So, in District Four we could see some growth early next year if we can get this all done.

    Jim,

    I don't often respond but the recent environmental crimes found on eradication sites recently is exactly the problem I have been talking about for months in our county. Finding 157 environmental citations tells us our lands are being destroyed and where are the environmentalists to cry out about "mother earth"? I spoke to the Chief of the North Central Division of the State Waterboard to explain counties that are having these problems are not communicating with water agencies as to the level of the problem as it will and does affect the long term watersheds. In our county, I am unable to find any evidence of cleanup or mitigation on any site we have identified in the eradication process. Even the "approved" grows in many cases graded years ago without permits and have never been required to present as-built plans or get the required permits. Further those contractors that are doing this work without permits are not having their contractors licenses challenged or those without licenses are not be prosecuted by the state for working without a license. All they do is use the "M" word and miraculously the exemptions start.

    The cleanup responsibility starts with those that are elected in our county. We need to find people to run in 2018 that agree to keep our communities safe and those that want to run for public office should begin to commit to the process now.

    Regards,

          The County’s obligation is to produce documents for inspection upon a request that “reasonably describes an identifiable record.” (Govt. Code §§ 6252(e) & (g); 6253(b).) One litmus test for the reasonable-description-of-identifiable-records requirement is “whether the records can be located with reasonable efforts.” (State Board of Equalization v. Superior Court (1992) 10 Cal.App.4th 1177, 1186.) Please note that the County has a 60-day email retention policy; all emails in County inbox, outbox, and draft folders are automatically and permanently deleted after sixty (60) days.


          The Office of County Counsel is not the custodian of the documents you request, but is working with the County Tech Services department on your request. Tech Services is working to retrieve emails from the three County email accounts in the date range you have specified. Any responsive emails that exist and are not attorney-client privileged or otherwise exempt from PRA disclosure will be produced to you once that process is complete. This extraction and review for privilege and exemption may take up to two weeks. Additionally, each of the three supervisors has been asked to search his private (non-County) email accounts and social media accounts for any responsive messages, and all responsive non-privileged communications which exist will be produced to you as well.



          The County will waive the costs of production to which it is entitled under Government Code §§ 6253(b), 54985, and County Code Chapter 3.54 because the cost of producing responsive documents (assuming electronic production is acceptable) is relatively nominal and will mainly consist of counsel time to review. Please contact me if you have any questions or wish to discuss; otherwise, any responsive non-exempt communications will be produced to you as soon as the review is completed.



          Sincerely,

          __

    Interesting, I was in the cannabis nuisance hearing when the former Russ Thomas property in Salt Springs/Milton area came up. The Rostefarian Church was included in the testimony that Reverend Sparkles would, for a fee of $30k, include the appellant in the the church's exemption. The judge didn't buy the argument. I noticed in the Fox 40 news story that Russ is for the benefits of regulation and the money it would bring to the county. So now there are two directors on CCWD with that tilt. Remember he is up for election in June of 2018.

Subject: Reworked Proposition. . . Your Comments. . .

Notes on Mj Solutions: Creating The "BOS Ban - Plan B”
This concept enlists the passing of the current BOS Ban Ordinance and EIR accompanied with a list of “Exceptions” that remedy our current quagmire, of a workable solutions going forward that eliminates most future litigation and allows the county the revenue stream that has been projected to monitor and manage the registered growers while eliminating and eradicating the illegal growers at a much quicker pace. The “BOS Ban - Plan B” allows us to move forward in a more organized and manageable fashion with the necessary dedicated staff in place to best manage our commercial cannabis crisis. The “Exceptions” allow all current registered Cannabis Growers once certified to proceed forward under new very-strict rules of engagement. We estimate that there will be about 250 to 300 operations that can satisfactory make this transition, which becomes a very manageable proposition for Calaveras County. This program costs will be completely funded by the Cannabis Industry; Calaveras Cannabis Alliance, CCA, including the department costs and staff. Therefore, this will be a Enterprise Department, contributing to, but not financed by the General Fund.
The following areas of understanding are the basis of the consideration:
Areas of understandings:
1 — County needs a Mj Program Manager possibly under or paralleling the Ag Department. The department head must possess acute farming and heavy Ag background; including the use and application and of fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, and the ability to establish a list of Calaveras County approved product and use and application requirements for commercial cannabis.
Notation: The production and use of M/R Marijuana is not just a land use issue, It includes broad administrative, civil, and criminal law issues, land use is but one important element, therefore removing the administration and oversight from the Planning Department is necessary.
2 — Removing grows from all RR & RA land in subdivisions is paramount - The County and the CCA must review and identify possible areas/regions of our county where growers can congregate and operate as single farms as well as Co-farm location. Areas that will allow for good neighbor Policy and eliminate Nuisance abatement issues such as smell.
Notation-1: The identified areas and or parcels must carry a designation in there APN number so that every concerned understands that this area/parcel is qualifies for a commercial grow.
Notation-2: These more consolidated grow areas will allow Law Enforcement, Code Compliance and Inspection teams a more central location(s) for there work, reducing travel time increasing efficiencies.
3 — Qualifying Parcel Check-list - The County must create a zoning and parcel location check-list so that if all answers are positive the previously registered grower can swap/purchase land and re- registration the new approved parcel. The County must also be willing and capable of expediting the permitting and inspection process for this endeavor, as time will be the growers enemy.
Notation-1: Water must be available throughout-out the year on the parcel selected, no trucking of water will be tolerated — applicant must provide proof-of water availability and growers wells may be fitted with water meters.
Notation-2: Discussions will be advanced with our counties water purveyors to identify where there may be an opportunity to identify best properties or groups of properties were a joint venture could be established to develop an 8” water line running to multiple grow-site parcels.
4 — Transitioning to new land for operations requires incurring many expenses and requires a huge allocation of time — this is a considerable task and the details must be worked-out carefully — depriving the growers of cash-flow during this period and placing too much urgency on the time-frame will cause chaos, clerical errors and disruption.
5 — Placing a demand on growers that existing commercial cannabis sites need complete environmental remediation prior approval of the transfer of registration or the sale of the property is wise — However. there needs to be a effort to determine what this requirement consist of and what the potential cost estimates may be.
6 — Growers understand that this transition will have an effect the number of registered growers in Calaveras County, reducing the numbers considerably from the original 770 applications, therefore the registration fees and other fees may have to increase to maintain balance for the county and fund necessary county management and enforcement operations.
7 — Growers agree to back-ground checks by the Sheriffs Department for all employees and individuals on grow-sites, identifying these employees with photo badges or lanyards and post a list on the new 4ʼ x 4ʼ Grow-site “information-board” showing photo and by name who is allowed on-site.
8 — Growers will establish a 4ʼx4ʼ Information Board at the inter- entrance of the grow-site that contains 1- Detailed diagram of the grow area 2- Detailed diagram of the grow site parcel 3- Detailed diagram of chemical storage w/spill contingency plan 4- Detailed diagram of the potential environmental run-off with winter rain contingency plans.
Notation- 1: Growers will establish written and 4x4 posted good neighbor policies and nuances abatement programs that keep score-cards measuring and mandating growers adhere to these rules.
Notation- 2: Growers will also display on these new 4ʼx4ʼ Boards the quantity of chemicals on-hand as well as detailed records of fertilization, pesticide and herbicide use.
9 — Growers will establish a series of on-going mandatory seminars where they will be learning all best practice farming techniques, Including the use and applications of fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides — Watershed management, Business Plans, Labor Law, State Board of Equalization, Water Board, and various other government agency requirements.
10 — Growers will also create the much needed architectural ambiance at the road frontage of the properties to show there respect for the community by enhancing there entries, therefore, there perceived value in the communities, disguising the required fencing as much as possible.
11 — Growers would also like to request consideration for registered Growers that maintain a stellar inspection record be allowed to expand there operations to a full-acre grow-site.
Notation- 1: Formalizing this program; the details and administration will take some time to work-out, however, the promise or consideration from the county serves two purposes; First a great incentive for the growers to follow all the rules and Secondly the county doubles the revenue generation from these well managed grows.
12 — The County must also offer some security to CCA and Growers that after this expensive move. Growers need to know that they will be able to grow there product uninterrupted except by non- compliant citations for a period of at-least 5 years. The County also needs to protect these small grower entrepreneurs with a agreement that our County will not allow any Big Box Growers to enter our county during this period.

Future Thoughts and Important Considerations:
1.0 — Marketing & Branding high-quality, high-grade Calaveras County Cannabis
Notation- The need to Create a Value-Proposition, therefore creating demand and sustainability in this fast charging and changing marketplace. This marketing effort will create a healthy market for Calaveras Cannabis, maintaining demand therefore, price stability.
2.0 — The potential of also adding a Distribution Center must be considered, eliminating the many individual transactions and addressing the ability to more clearly control and monitor all sales. This center will add an additional 7% tax option that goes directly to the Calaveras Countyʼs general Fund.
3.0 — This emerging market must be studied carefully to insure that if Calaveras Board of Supervisors chooses to move forward with “BOS Ban - Plan B” that we understand and are willing to dedicate a highly efficient staff to this proposition — it will be a self-funding Department that the Growers would be willing to fund. This could remain a part of the Ag Department but the funding will entirely come from the Cannabis Community

Subject: Morning Memo. . .
, I sent a memo to the PC Chair this morning out-lining some of the thoughts we discussed. It came from me and address my opinions only, However, I believe you would agree to 95% + of what was written.
I also dug into the cost and cash-flow encumbrances the new ordinance is creating for growers and that a cost recovery plan needs to be understood as well as this proposed ordinance requires a much deeper review as to it's potential to recreate the chaos the UO championed.
You may think its a bit early to start this conversation, but my experience is that the conversation takes a while to resonate, and folks will be looking at this plan shortly, so we need to uncover the entanglements proposed.
No one on my side knows we are speaking, its just to early for me to be answering all the questions I will be asked since we do not have a more formal understanding at this point.
Folks on your side are more aware of our conversations, I’m hoping they realize that they have a mountain to climb and jeopardizing our talks would not be constructive. Also, since the alternative to the Ban is out there, I would suggest that you caution your side on being too vocal on what they do not like or a least present there concerns in a polite inquisitive manner. Talking down to or directing the PC or BOS is not a good strategy for success, we all need to be a little humble if this coming together understanding is going to fly.

      Merita did not look well. We do not need someone who is looking out for individuals. That is the definition of cronyism. Who cares if she shops local, fills potholes, and stops barking dogs. We need a systematic themed strategy to pull us out of the 22 year nosedive she fomented on our district. Oak Drive? That's her folly completely. Why? She implemented those bike lanes that are paved thinner than the main, central part of that road. Now she wants folks to park cars on those thinly paved side areas? Why didn't she do her homework? Why didn't she do her homework on a variety of issues? No thank you.

      Really? Anyone can say they are for the citizens of District 3. Merita could not succinctly verbalize what exactly she will do to bring Arnold into the future with success and measured growth. Please. No more photos of shopping local. We all shop local. She is not qualified to lead. For 22 years we had no General Plan, she virtually gave away valuable railroad rights that we could have used for recreational pathing like other areas of the country, she brought Stephanie Moreno here, consolidated Building and Planning and put Ms. Moreno in charge, only to have a Grand Jury to determine Ms. Moreno is not qualified for the job. You guessed it. Calaveras County had to pay Stephanie Moreno to leave, no thanks to Merita. PD? Planned Development is Merita's most public debacle that has all but destroyed Arnold. Luckily a group of citizens are taking Arnold back and moving it forward, under Mike Oliveira's positive leadership.
      Fiscal Conservatism? Merita has wrought fiscal chaos. Her issues go all the way back to PG&E days when we "borrowed" a company vehicle, put her daughter in it, drove to Bear Valley for recreational purposes on purportedly company time, and got caught because she was in an accident. Not good.

      As she stated herself, Merita's top priorities are fixing potholes, barking dogs, and marijuana. Arguable as damaging are her second tier priorities of CUPs (Conditional Use Permits), Variance, and other off-the-wall legi-speak for favors, cronyism, and getting around zoning laws. The Oak Court comment? She caused that. She makes one person (very unusually) pay for the entire debacle, can't do her homework, creates bike lanes instead of the more user-friendly and universal Sharrow. Those bike lanes are paved with a thinner application of material and cannot withstand parked cars, even if we wanted them there. Merita messed up and got caught in her own (yet-once-again) favoritism scandal, tried to blame Mike Oliveira for upholding the law, then dodged and pivoted. Please be careful, voters. Merita promoted Measure D - and still is pushing its most dangerous provisions. She's still pushing favoritism and spoke clearly and publicly about the mechanisms to achieve that last night. A vote for Mike will continue to improve District 3 and the quality of life for all - because he's smart, ethical, & won't play favorites.

Never answered the question about managing people or handling a budget.

Said don't hire from outside yet at the last debate he said he brings outside experience. Guess his outside experience is all that matters.

Even said he got tired of working all the time as a deputy in the 90's so left Calaveras to go to Amador where he couldn't cut the mustard as a cop either, so ended up knocking on doors talking to neighbors of people who have applied for county positions doing their backgrounds.

So sounds like Calaveras has had problems keeping deputies all along, not just this last two years.

Another contradiction, Stevens says moral is down and deputies have told him so then goes on to say he has some book that states its illegal for employees to talk about their work problems. But again, it must be okay for them to talk him.

Stevens you are a phony. This will go down between DiBasilio and Garrahn. Go sit down somewhere.

    Are you in a fog? The Board of Supervisors does make rules and regulations for our county except for those brought forward by citizens' initiatives. Please study regulatory process here. He's an amazing supervisor and is working hard to bring us out of the 22 year free fall courtesy of Merita Callaway who has cost this county quite a bit with her misunderstanding of process.

      Did I mention her nearly single-handed ruinous actions in Arnold. We can trace the financial decline directly to her PD. Don't let her pivots mislead anyone into thinking she can skate away from direct responsibility for Planned Development that nearly wrecked Arnold. Shopping local, filling potholes, and quieting barking dogs is hardly a sound master plan to turn this place around. With 40-50 commercial vacancies thanks to Merita, we've had it tough. Mike has worked among natural disasters and still has managed to have 7 new businesses open recently, procure a temporary bridge where there was none, work toward another, work tirelessly on Butte Fire recovery and tree mortality. What did Merita do. She screwed up the Oak Court street project in at least 3 ways. #1 She did bike lanes instead of Sharrows #2 She allowed for thinner paving in the bike lanes, which cannot support cars parking there and #3 She make the wrong person pay for it instead of the original appropriate businesses. #4 She is shuffling off blame for her own woeful inadequacy in urban planning. Wow.

          You obviously do not have any earthly idea. Mike successfully lead this district to better achievements in less than 4 years than anyone previously. Merita all but sabotaged Arnold with that ill-conceived Planned Development, that she tried to blame on others this evening. There are so many other examples of her 21 year reign of ruin. She's a good community volunteer. Stick with that.

        That's actually right. Making laws is a big part of the BOS' job. Why would you object to this in that it is a main charter. Mike Oliveira tells it like it is, is a whole lot smarter than many people realize, and has done so much more for Arnold and its neighboring communities in less than 4 years, than Mertia Callaway did in 22. She sent us downward, while he is working to bring us back up and then forward. Don't be threatened by a confident stance. He has vision and works with everyone. Oh did I mention he shops local?

          Merita had 21 or 22 years to enact a General Plan. Even in that time, the document was flawed - significantly. In just less than 4 years, we are dangerously close to having a good, working document. Why isn't it done? Silly commercial marijuana and its time sink, cornered all of Staff's time. Now, in 2018, the law changed and the county is required to include three additional elements into the General Plan that require more consideration. Commercial marijuana has dominated our resources long enough. Merita either doesn't understand or doesn't know that the "legal" growers are non-compliant. She's up to her same old smoke and mirrors, flowery descriptive, deceptive code words for growers that just won't do the right thing. So, please, investigate.

              This is no joke that "permitted" growers did in fact dump unwanted fertilizer in wells. How do we know? The contamination that developed. They also had run-off that killed fish in neighboring ponds that are downhill. There is a blurred line between "legal"and "illegal" grows that Merita Callaway either cannot recognize or fails to affirm. Either way, her actions in her almost fanatical promotion of the (thankfully) failed Measure D denote a serious lapse in judgment that could have put us all in harm's way. Butane in populated areas?

                If your claim is in fact true, prove it. What registered cultivation site put fertilizer in a well. Where are these reports showing the “levels of contamination” cause by this alleged activity.

                  O.k. The many downhill (actual) farmers who have had dead fish in their ponds as a result of the fertilizers and amendments used. Want more? There was contamination found in wells that had to be abandoned. Just ask some of our local well companies. This is easy data. Why don't you feel free to go investigate? What about our wells be drawn dry by growers - who have drawn dry neighboring wells. How do we know? Just contact local well-drilling companies. It's not my job to feed you data that is easily accessible. Go get it.

I am not happy with Merita and Ed saying Arnold is worse.
Klines is reopened. Cameo shopping center is reopened, I see all kinds of new activity in buildings that were closed. Lube room is open, Avery has businesses now. So, stop trying to bring our town down. We are proud that in the last three years business has picked up. Thank you, but these politics are not going to work. These buildings were shut down under Merita's watch. Ed has no clue!
