Supervisors coming to Tahoe to mark Angora anniversary
June 22, 2008
In part to recognize the one-year anniversary of the Angora fire, the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors will meet at 9 a.m. Tuesday at Lake Tahoe Golf Course and also visit the fire area.
On the agenda for the 9 a.m. meeting is a presentation proclaiming Sept. 20, 2008, as Sgt. Timothy Michael Smith Day in El Dorado County. Smith, an Army sergeant and South Lake Tahoe native, was killed in the line of duty in Iraq on April 7.
Supervisors also will hear a presentation from Tahoe Regional Planning Agency officials on the regional plan and a presentation from the Lake Tahoe South Shore Chamber of Commerce on the Wayfinding Program, a plan for a unified system of signs in South Lake Tahoe.
At 1 p.m., supervisors will head to a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the remodeled Animal Control shelter on Shakori Drive. The shelter is holding a grand-opening celebration from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday.
At 2 p.m., supervisors will gather at the home of Stan Freeman at 607 Pyramid Court to present certificates of appreciation to fire responders. A tree-planting ceremony also will take place. Freeman and his wife, Diana, were among the first people who lost homes in the Angora fire to move back into the area.
