ABS Fielded Numerous Complaints About The Conditions Of River Pines

The Amador Board of Supervisors fielded numerous complaints from residents about conditions in the River Pines area during this week’s meeting.  Petitioners asked the board to address a number of issues, including garbage pilling up in yards and on roadsides, abandoned vehicles, narrow and restricted roadways, and open drug dealing. In response to these the complaints, supervisors discussed the possibility implementing mandatory trash collection, either county-wide of just in the River Pines area. Also discussed was the current effort to add more financial penalties to the county code enforcement actions, and the sheriff department’s anti-drug task force efforts. It is hoped that these changes would help address the resident’s complaints. Also on Tuesday, the board voted not to participate in California’s Complete Count program. The program would have provided additional resources to encourage residents to participate in the 2020 census. The supervisors also heard a report from the county’s facilities department, which contained an update on repair and approved a letter in support of a statewide commission on recycled materials. With dramatically lowered demand for recyclable materials from China, waste management companies, including in Amador County are struggling to find buyers for all the materials they collect.
