Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
The El Dorado County Fish and Wildlife Commission advises the Board of Supervisors on matters pertaining to the conservation of Fish, Game and Wildlife. The Commission also makes recommendation to the Board pertaining to the expenditure of Fish and Game Preservation funds and fine revenues. One of the key initiatives of the Commission is the eradication of poaching in El Dorado County. The goals of the Fish and Wildlife Commission include: serving El Dorado County Board of Supervisors and the community, encouraging responsible stewardship of EDC’s fish, game and wildlife resources, develop Commission resources to work on past and future projects, encourage cooperative sponsorships & funding, expanding community outreach, i.e., donating refurbished fishing rods and reels, fishing derbies, new project designs, i.e., Family Fishing Days, and monitor relevant legislation and policy.

The Commission is requesting a general fund contribution for the FY 22/23 in the amount of $15,000, for the continuation of fish stocking for the county fishing derbies that were postponed due to the unfortunate circumstances from COVID over the past two years.

ALTERNATIVES
The Board could decide not to approve the funding request.
