Calaveras Supes Hold Special Meeting On Recent PSPS'

The Calaveras supervisors have called a special meeting today centering on the recent Public Safety Public Shutoffs. According to the agenda for today’s special meeting, county OES Director John Osbourn is recommending the board declare a local emergency due to impacts from the power shutdowns, which lasted up to nine days for thousands of residents, affected substantial portions of county operations, including critical public infrastructure and services. According to Osbourn, the shutdown caused emergency conditions beyond the immediate capabilities of local resources, services, personnel, equipment, and facilities, causing ongoing financial and other implications for the county. The initial de-energization affected most residents Oct. 23 with many not getting power restored until Oct. 31. The subsequent one affected fewer county areas but still a significant number, including some that remained without power from the first incident. Today’s special session began at 1:30 PM in the Supervisors Chambers at Government Center in San Andreas.
