PUBLIC MEETING: Angels Camp City Council, 6 p.m. Tuesday, Joe Carley Memorial Firehouse, 1404 Vallecito Road.
The Angels Camp City Council on Tuesday will host the first of two “unmet transit needs” forums to be held this month in Calaveras County on behalf of the Calaveras Transit system.
The public hearings are required annually and are designed to solicit public input on what public transportation needs are being overlooked and underserved within a jurisdiction.
The second hearing is slated for 6 p.m. Thursday at Faith Lutheran Church, 65 Mitchler St., Murphys.
The council is also expected to approve a letter of support for state legislation that would permit the use of energy allocated from the New Melones Dam project for private use to support economic development. The allocation is now limited to use by public agencies.
In a staff update written by City Administrator Michael McHatten, he notes that the city has begun to advertise its opening for a new city attorney. Longtime City Attorney Richard Matranga stepped down late last year due to health concerns.
McHatten said the city is also in contract negotiations and conducting a background check for a new city museum director. That position has been unfilled since the abrupt termination of Craig Hadley in September.
In an hour-long closed session scheduled before the regular meeting, council members are slated to discuss a lawsuit filed by Hadley against the city following his firing.
