San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors to consider action on Williamson Act
Lodi News-Sentinel

The San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors will conduct a public hearing Tuesday to continue its moratorium on new Williamson Act applications and appoint 11 people to the county’s interim board of trustees for San Joaquin General Hospital. Due to state budget cuts that eliminated the state’s $1.7 million reimbursement to San Joaquin County in 2009, the county adopted a resolution suspending new applications last November. Tuesday’s action would extend the moratorium until Oct. 1, 2011.
