Board of Commissioners Sign Resolution to Consider Solutions to the Threat of Wildfires in the Region

At their Regular Wednesday Meeting on November 15, 2017, the Jackson County Board of Commissioners unanimously approved Order No. 206-17 resolving to consider solutions to the threat of wildfires in the region.  In signing the Order, Jackson County will:

  • Continue to cooperate with other county governments to forge a path to solutions that will address this multi-level problem.
  • Push to ensure that only the “Best Science” for actual solutions, instead of the “Best Available Science,” is favored in outcome-based agendas and implementation schemes of artifice.
  • Oppose any efforts to erode, limit or otherwise exclude the County’s authority to adhere to its duties and obligations.
  • Continue to actively demand and pursue Coordination with Federal Agencies, according to the Codified Ordinances of Jackson County, to ensure that the obligations and duties for the protections of its residents are met.
  • Continue to actively cooperate with Federal and State Agencies, in circumstances in which Coordination is not applicable, to work for the protection of its residents.
  • Continue to actively pursue solutions through legislative mandates to restrict the ability of organizations including, but not limited to, those with no fiduciary duty to the residents of the County, from performing services as a partnering group with a Federal Agency that has the potential to do harm to or otherwise impact the residents of the County.
