Amador Supervisors Had A Busy Agenda In Their Last Meeting Of The Year

The Amador Board of Supervisors had a busy agenda in their last meeting of the year on Tuesday. The board formally voted to increase the pay of both the county sheriff and district attorney, correcting a situation where the deputies of each position were paid more than the department head. The sheriff and DA will now make at least 5% more than their deputies of just over $160,000 a year for the DA and just over $175,000 per year for the sheriff. School District Superintendent Amy Slavensky gave a “state of the schools” report to the board, Slavensky touted student achievements, new facility construction and positive survey results for student health, but acknowledged a drop in the district’s test scores and the need for budget cuts to balance the school’s books. The board approved a road closure for Coal Mine Road through the month of January for construction improvement related to the new Buena Vista Casino. Also approved was going out to bid on a new roof for the Chew Kee Museum in Fiddletown. $18,000 for the project will be provided by the county and $30,000 from the Fiddletown Historic Society. And outgoing supervisor Lynn Morgan was honored yesterday, first by an official plaque from the board, and then by members of the public who praised her efforts in Government.
