If you are anything like me, you are still having difficulty writing “2022” but here we are; the first meeting of your CVCSD Board of Directors for 2022! Ken Albertson will be leading this meeting as President for the year, with Scott Baker serving as Vice President. We are very much appreciative of the leadership of 2021 Board President Larry Hoffman who led us through the fastest year on record.

Our first meeting for the year will be held on Tuesday, January 18, 2022, 2:00PM at the Lodge. We start off 2022 with an update of the Management Objectives for the District General Manager. This Board exercise is a unique opportunity for the public to provide input on the manager’s workplan for the upcoming 18 months – what you would like to see the District accomplish. After reviewing the past year’s objectives and accomplishments, and receiving public input, the Board will establish the management objectives.

The draft audited financial statements for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2021 are included in the agenda packet below, and the District’s independent auditor will present the financial statements and answer questions at the Board’s February 2022 meeting.

Vacant Lot Owner/Weed Abatement Agreement

ATTENTION VACANT LOT OWNERS – IMMEDIATE ATTENTION REQUIRED

DRY GRASS AND WEEDS CAUSING FIRE HAZARD

The drought conditions and hot weather have taken a toll on the weeds and tall grass on vacant lots, causing an early start to fire season and earlier than usual end to our green rolling hills. During Spring of past years, Copper Valley CSD has notified vacant lot owners of the need to remove grass and weeds and if we didn’t hear from them and the lot was not cleared by Summer, the CSD would simply mow the weeds and send a bill.  Unfortunately, this year the procedure had to become more formal with a written property owner agreement signed to allow the CSD to enter private property to perform the work. 

In an attempt to simplify and expedite the property owner agreement and mowing process, if you own a vacant lot and would like the CSD to mow your vacant lot, we request that you immediately complete the agreement contained in this notice and return by email to: mccutchenconsulting@gmail.com. The fee for the mowing service is $75.00.  Upon submitting the agreement form as soon as possible via email, please mail a check to the Copper Valley CSD at:

CVCSD            PO Box 5158            Sonora, CA 95370

If you have any questions or concerns about the weed abatement process or schedule, please do not hesitate to contact the Site Manager Greg Hebard at 209-768-5678.  Questions or concerns related to the property owner agreement or fee payment should be addressed to Office Manager Nicole McCutchen at mccutchenconsulting@gmail.com.
