Sutter Creek Votes In New Mayor And Honors Local Law Enforcement

In their first meeting of the New Year, the Sutter Creek City Council voted in a new Mayor, honored the work of local law enforcement, and discussed further regulations for short term rental properties in the city.

After officially accepting the results of the November election, council members Linda Rianda and Jim Swift were sworn in for new four year terms. The council then voted in Robin Peters as Mayor and re-elected Josie Cadieux- Faillers as Vice-Mayor. Police Chief James O’Connell honored those involved in the investigation of a burglary at Amador High School in November, where $20,000 worth of new welding equipment was stolen. Chief O’Connell cited the work of Sutter Creek Police officers, Sheriff’s deputies, DA Investigators and school staff as all playing key roles in the arrest of the suspects and the return of the stolen equipment. The council also discussed new restriction on short-term retail properties, such as those offered on Air B&B and similar arrangements. Council members express concerns over parking, disruptive parties, and the loss of residential housing stock. A draft ordinance was referred to the City Planning Commission for further review.
