Other minor changes  clean-up some inconsistencies regarding who is responsible for setting up appeal hearings.  Under the changes the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors  will   take requests for appeals and set hearing dates.   Between 30 and 40 appeal hearings were conducted in the past growing season.  The  technical amendments to the County’s Marijuana Cultivation Ordinance  are tentatively  set for  the March 26,  Board of Supervisors  meeting for review.    The Nevada County Sheriff’s Office remains  responsible for enforcing the ordinance.
