REQUESTED ACTION (S)

a)              AGREEMENT- Request approval and authorization for the Agricultural Commissioner to sign Standard Agreement No. 17-C0045 and the Contractor Certification with the California Department of Pesticide Regulation for the provisions of collecting and submitting historical compliance and enforcement pesticide use data and dialog with the California Department of Pesticide Regulation to determine if enforcement responses are consistent and appropriate, in an amount not to exceed $5,634.59, effective 7/1/17 or upon final approval by the State, whichever occurs later, through 12/31/17

(Miscellaneous Agreement #2017-233)

BACKGROUND INFO

Statewide, over the years, the number of enforcement actions, method of submission, level of interaction between the County Agricultural Commissioner (CAC) and Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) staff, requested detail, and the timing of submission has varied considerably.  Recently, DPR has determined there is a need to increase communication and collaboration with the CAC in the tracking, development, and preparation of enforcement responses.  DPR review of notice of proposed actions and civil penalty action hearing decisions prior to issuance will support and strengthen enforcement and assist the CACs with difficult or complicated enforcement action decisions.  In addition, this collaboration will assist DPR in determining whether enforcement actions are warranted at the state level.

 

This agreement with DPR will provide funding to the Tehama County Department of Agriculture for provision of collecting and submitting historical compliance and enforcement pesticide use data and dialog with DPR to determine if enforcement responses are consistent and appropriate.
