OC Board Approves Sober Living

The Orange County Board of Supervisors Tuesday approved an ordinance requiring sober-living facilities to register with the county, a proposal District Attorney Tony Rackauckas fought for to crack down on bad actors in the industry, which has thrived in coastal cities.

The board voted 3-1, with Supervisor Shawn Nelson voting no and Supervisor Todd Spitzer absent.

Unlike their last meeting when they preliminarily approved the ordinance, there was no debate among the supervisors this time.
