SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – The South Lake Tahoe City Council will meet starting at 9 a.m. Tuesday at City Council Chambers at Lake Tahoe Airport.

What’s the issue?

The City Council has been wrestling for months over how to regulate the growing of medical marijuana in homes.

What’s happening?

The city has given initial approval to a set of regulations governing the cultivation of medical marijuana in homes, but has yet to set the fees to offset costs associated with the permitting process.

What’s next?

The council is scheduled to give final approval to the cultivation ordinance and establish a $350 application fee and a $217 annual inspection and renewal fee for a cultivation permit Tuesday. Final approval of the ordinance and fee schedule is on the consent agenda, meaning they will be passed without discussion unless a council member or member of the public makes a request to discuss the items.

What’s the issue?

The City Council has expressed concerns about how the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency’s development rules have effected the city’s livelihood.

What’s happening?

The City Council has sent a letter to Nevada legislators in support of reforms exemplified by SB 271, a bill that would withdrawal the Nevada from the TRPA Compact.

What’s next?

The council will discuss sending a letter to California legislators regarding the city’s participation in the TRPA.

What’s the issue?

Following the release of 2010 U.S. census figures, El Dorado County is reorganizing the county’s five Board of Supervisor seats based on population densities throughout the county.

What’s happening?

The county has developed five alternatives for new districts, each of which includes splitting or expanding the District 5 seat beyond the Lake Tahoe Basin because of the area’s loss of population in the past 10 years.

What’s next?

The council will discuss the redistricting proposals and recommend a preferred alternative.
