On Tuesday October 4 the Mendocino County Board of Supervisors will be discussing cannabis with the final report and recommendations for immediate action from the disbanding Cannabis Ad Hoc of Supervisors Haschak and McGourty. After 10-4 all cannabis items will first be reviewed by the General Government Committee which will take a good deal of time to get up to speed on the scale of the current crisis.
MCA strongly supports these urgent suggestions from the Ad Hoc and we call on you and the broader Mendocino community to support them as well. We invite you, and all Mendocino residents who understand the value of our locally licensed cannabis industry, to call on the BoS to approve the Ad Hoc’s recommendations and to provide any necessary direction to Staff for them to be implemented. We can not wait for these items to be further delayed by shifting them into a new committee.
MCA is planning an in person appearance in front of Board chambers at 501 Low Gap Road in Ukiah on 10-4 at 1:30pm prior to entering for the meeting. We will then enter the meeting and provide public comment on this item.
We would like to further encourage you to share your support of these recommendations to your district Supervisor or the full Board in advance of the 10-4 meeting. While the Board is used to hearing from a small number of MCA representatives on cannabis items, we feel this meeting is incredibly important, and the more voices we have in support, the more likely that the Board will feel inclined to adopt the recommendations which will ultimately benefit the entire County.
