Debris removal, including toxic ash, at issue in Sonoma County after wildfires


The Sonoma County Board of Supervisors will hold a special meeting Friday to discuss deadlines for debris removal and other ongoing issues related to the deadly October wildfires, county officials announced Thursday.

At issue especially is all the toxins that are in the ash leftover from the fires. Leaders and residents want to protect the watershed, according to Rita Miller of the Santa Rosa Department.

Supervisors will meet at 2 p.m. in the board chambers at 575 Administration Drive in Santa Rosa. They are considering two items: a resolution allowing the county’s General Services director to execute leases of RV spaces at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds and another proposal to establish deadlines for debris removal.

The board will discuss deadlines for fire victims to submit right-of-entry forms for the government’s cleanup program and deadlines for residents to apply for the alternate program. Supervisors just authorized the alternate cleanup program on Tuesday.
