El Dorado County leaders will hear a report Tuesday by Sheriff Jeff Neves on
federal money received for the county's marijuana enforcement effort.

The Drug Enforcement Agency has pledged to give El Dorado County $16,000 to
defray costs relating to the eradication and suppression of illicit
marijuana through 2003, according to the report.

Supervisors will meet Tuesday at the Board of Supervisors meeting room, 330
Fair Lane, Building A, in Placerville.

In other action, the board will:

*  Consider spending $41,000 in a joint effort with the U.S. Forest Service
to investigate activities involving illegal production and trafficking of
controlled substances on Forest Service land in El Dorado County.

*  Decide whether to enter into an agreement with attorney Dee Schilling in
the amount of $8,000 for legal services in support of eligible clients of
the Safe and Healthy Homes grant that address unhealthy housing conditions
of pregnant women and children 5 and under in South Lake Tahoe.

*  Decide whether to transfer $115,000 from general fund contingencies for
interim budget increases to allow continued work of the General Plan.
