Supes tackle environment, financial issues

This week’s board of supervisors meeting was marked with plenty of positive notes during public comment.

Several highlights include more than 41,000 pounds of pesticide had been collected, according to Madera County Ag Commissioner Rusty Lantsberger, a status update on the status of multiple levees from the Water and Natural Resources Deputy Director, a push for SB 14 from District Attorney Sally Moreno, a proclamation making July 17-21 as Probation Services Week, and a special dedication of opening and closing ceremonies to the expecting mothers in the room.

After receiving funding from the California Department of Pesticide Regulation for a pesticide disposal event, Lantsberger announced that more than 41,000 pounds of legacy pesticides were collected during two events held in July at a cost of $137,000 with the assistance of the Environmental Health Department and Red Rock Environmental.
