BOARD OF SUPERVISORS
Discussion/direction regarding response from Sierraville District Ranger Quentin Youngblood pertaining to county costs incurred for drug enforcement activities on national forest system lands. (CHAIR ADAMS) No way to provide meaningful reimbursement for costs of marijuana eradication. Don’t think the problem is going away. Quentin is committed to Sierra County working on this issue. The pollution and hazardous waste left by illegal marijuana grows should be addressed by the USFS on federal land. Have not heard from Congressman LaMalfa in terms of this issue. Supervisor Beard suggests seizing control of federal lands. Sheriff Tim Standley mentioned the costs of deputies doing the job are well over what the Grant funding allows.. Supervisor Huebner says send the bill of what it costs. Treasurer Tax Collector/Auditor/Risk Manager and Ruler of All Things Left Unassigned believes the problem will eventually be solved through the political process, if we’re going to send a bill have it as a greater plan. A lot more was said by the Supervisors and Depts and you can listen to the record of the meeting to hear the long discussion… A vote
