The Rio Dell City Council is set to make its final decisions on an amendment to the enforcement section of the commercial medical marijuana land use ordinance, letting the County of Humboldt regulate septic tanks in city limits and joining Redwood Coast Energy Authority’s Redwood Community Energy plan on Tuesday evening.
On the agenda is the second reading of an ordinance that would see the city join Redwood Coast Energy Authority’s Redwood Community Energy plan. RCEA officials have come to previous meetings to explain the benefits of the plan to the council and audience. The plan boasts lower rates and more local control on where and how energy is produced; meaning more renewable, local power sources could be utilized.
