Winter storm forces El Dorado County supervisors to reschedule meeting on VHRs
February 28, 2018
The first time it was too many people. The second time it was Mother Nature.
The El Dorado County Board of Supervisors on Wednesday canceled its meeting to discuss vacation home rentals (VHRs) scheduled for Saturday, March 3, due to the inclement weather expected to hit the region over the next four days.
Supervisors first tried to host a meeting on VHRs in South Lake Tahoe City Council Chambers at the Lake Tahoe Airport on Feb. 1. However, the room was filled beyond capacity and the fire marshal informed supervisors they would have to end the meeting shortly after it started.
The county rescheduled the meeting for Saturday at a larger location in Meyers.
But with multiple agencies advising motorists not to drive to the Tahoe region (four of the five county supervisors do not live in the Tahoe Basin) from Wednesday night to Sunday, supervisors decided to cancel Saturday's meeting.
The county intends to reschedule the meeting at a location up at the lake, according to Carla Hass, communications and outreach director.
