Amador Board of Supervisors Meeting Yesterday

The Amador Board of Supervisors discussed a new County wildlife rescue center at their meeting on Tuesday.  The proposed animal rescue operation is a joint venture between the County Humane Society and TriCounty Wildlife rescue.  It would include a raptor center, cat rescue facility and would eventually serve as a headquarter building for both organizations.  While the Board did not have a formal development project application and could not approve the project, individual Board members were supportive and most of the discussion revolved around how the project could avoid the County's Conditional Use Permit process.  The Board also approved a response letter to the Civil Grand Jury report, defending the County's road repair efforts and voluntary employee furlough system, which has been used as a cost-savings measure and came under criticism in this year's Grand Jury Report.  The Board also received annual reports on operations at the County Museum.  The Museum is proceeding with the construction of a new livery stable to house historic vehicles and animal tack.
