[Calaveras County] Dissolve Angels Camp?
Angels Camp — The Calaveras County Grand Jury took a huge leap in recommending that discussions be held about dissolving a city of 107 years. To be sure, the grand jury reported on some financial problems within Angels Camp city government. But it must be noted these problems were discovered by city officials themselves months before the grand jury’s report. These same city officials took steps to correct some lax management. Again, this was well before the grand jury report was submitted. Also, the jury’s suggestion that no one is interested in running for office in Angels Camp seems unfounded. Grand juries provide valuable oversight to California communities, but this one took a wrong turn.
