SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER: Dan Miller
District 3 Supervisor
Who do you know who graduated from local schools and has lived here 60 years? Did that person also serve on the Grass Valley Planning Commission and City Council? Was your friend elected to the High School District Board of Trustees? Has this busy person been twice elected to the Nevada County Board of Supervisors and currently serves as its Chairman? Is it possible that we know the same person? Yes, this public servant and glutton for public punishment is Dan Miller.
Dan miller, our April keynote speaker recently co-introduced to the Board of Supervisors the Resolution supporting reopening Nevada County safely in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, in coordination with Nevada County Health authorities. This brave act, to start a discussion garnered a lot of opposition from folks who like to control other people’s behavior and enjoy compliance with the governor’s ever changing, unreasonable, and unequal treatment of small counties.
Starting conversations is only one of Miller’s jobs. Supervisors’ duties include the approval of contracts, conduct of public hearings, determination of annual budget allocations, create and fill boards and commissions, provide executive authority over delivery of county services to residents, provide for compensation of county employees, and also give policy direction to the County Executive Officer.
On top of all that, the Supervisors aim to meet policy objectives they set for themselves each year. Objectives like maintaining fiscal stability and core services; do things to “reduce deaths during wildfires and minimize the impacts of Public Safety Power Shutoffs”; and support job-enhancing economic development. In 2020 the Covid-19 pandemic hit the country, the state, and our county. These three government entities have dealt unevenly and variously with the covid challenge. After more than a year of lock-downs, along with color coded tiers mandating restrictions on business operations and personal behavior, it is time to get an insider’s views and assessments.
We’ve asked Supervisor Miller to reflect on the state of the county in light of the pandemic’s local impact. In a recent interview printed in The Union Miller said, “We have been given the responsibility by the state to enforce the COVID-19 restrictions, but our authority to make local decisions is limited.” Finally, we invite Miller to address other local issues before the Board including the Rise Gold mining application and the status of broadband expansion.
