Angels Camp, CA – The City of Angels Camp City Council will convene at 4 p.m. today, using the earlier than usual meeting time at the onset to review findings of a much-anticipated tourism and business expansion study underway since last fall.
The council also expects to accept a resignation letter from City Fire Chief Greg Petersen, who has worked in the capacities of chief, captain and deputy chief for almost seven years. In the letter, dated April 27, Petersen cited an ongoing medical condition as the reason.
Nodding both to the business expansion study report, which will be presented by the city’s marketing partner Buxton Company, and cosmetic demolition work now underway downtown at Utica Hotel by its new owners, as reported earlier, Angels Camp Business Association (ACBA) President Sherri Smith will make a timely presentation to the council.
Among other regular agenda items District Attorney Barbara Yook and Police Chief Todd Fordhal have scheduled to address local impacts of Prop 47, the recently enacted law that reduced many crimes considered “non-violent” from felonies to misdemeanors. City Building Inspector Steve Flagg is slated to introduce an ordinance providing an expedited, streamlined process for small residential rooftop solar systems for which a June 2 public hearing has been tentatively set.
Under public hearings, the council looks to adopt amendments introduced at the council’s April 7 meeting governing licenses and fees for local “intermittent” vendors, as well as to approve the City’s General Housing Plan Element for the next five years. City Administrator Michael McHatten will also deliver the annual “State of the City” address.
