(PLACERVILLE, CA) – The El Dorado County Board of Supervisors today announced it will hold a special Board meeting on September 10th, 2021 at 9:00am to discuss County initiatives to address the impact of the Caldor Fire and plans to begin the recovery process.
The Board will receive reports from the Sheriff's Office of Emergency Services, the County Assessor, the Registrar of Voters, the Treasurer-Tax Collector, and Environmental Management in regards remediation and cleanup efforts.
In addition, the Board will be discussing an urgency ordinance titled, "Caldor Fire Resiliency and Rebuilding Ordinance" for the purpose of modifying and temporarily suspending various County housing-related, permitting, and health and safety provisions and policies to expedite recovery and rebuilding of homes.
