On Mar 3rd, Director Morrison made a report to the BOS on county efforts to enforce provisions of the WDO. The agenda letter is here
It was pointed out that winery related complaints were a very minor part of the complaints received by the department. He significantly said that he didn't feel that enforcement efforts pay for themselves, that the fines are never enough (even given the $1 mil fine payed by Caymus for its egregious overproduction) to cover the administrative costs of an enforcement program. Supervisor Luce, perhaps in jest, suggested instead a "wall of shame" that scofflaws would be publicized on - perhaps on the new County website. Our David Hallett rose to second Supervisor Luce's motion. We'll see.
