NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Note: Notice Withdrawn Per Lead The Tulare County Board of Supervisors ( on August 17, 2021) entered into an Agreement with the State of California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) to provide funding for the County of Tulare Agriculture Commissioner's Office to offset costs of the Bee Safe Program activities. Protecting the health of bee hives is critically important to the agricultural industry within Tulare County and the State of California. Implementing the programs as provided by CDFA (i.e., the use of equipment, pesticides, chemicals, personnel, etc.) would mitigate the spread of exotic pests that threaten the apiary industry. As such, the funds will result in a public benefit by providing the actions necessary to protect and promote bee health and a vibrant apiary industry as noted above.
