A Young Man Contemplates a Homeless Future

AUBURN, CA (MPG) - The Placer County Board of Supervisors voted during a special meeting on Thursday, Jan. 22, to further the conversation about allowing a temporary emergency homeless shelter to be opened on county-owned property in North Auburn.

Firenzi said that PCWA and PG&E are operating mountain water systems “very conservatively” to store as much water as possible for the coming year. “The late December rains improved conditions over last year at this time,” said Firenzi. “But the almost complete lack of snow in the mountains is a serious concern.

The cheapest price may not be the best solution when it comes to repairing flood damage, removing a fallen tree, fixing a downed fence, or patching a leaky roof. Consumers can use CSLB’s online resources, available at www.cslb.ca.gov or CheckTheLicenseFirst.com, to review the license status of contractors they plan to hire and to get tips about the best approach for making home repairs.

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - The Contractors State License Board (CSLB) reminds California home owners to use only licensed contractors when it comes to storm damage repairs. The cheapest price may not be the best solution when it comes to repairing flood damage, removing a fallen tree, fixing a downed fence, or patching a leaky roof.

“Anyone who needs to make repairs from storm damage should be looking for a legitimate, qualified tradesperson, especially in an urgent situation,” said CSLB Registrar Steve Sands. “Licensed contractors are skilled in their specific trade, insured and bonded, and not likely to leave you in the lurch when it comes to properly completing the job at a fair price.”

Water Agency Prepares for Storm Runoff, Debris

Posted: 12/18/2014

AUBURN, CA (MPG) - With heavy rains in the forecast, the Placer County Water Agency (PCWA) has placed log booms across Ralston Afterbay Reservoir to contain logs and debris that could wash down the Rubicon River from lands charred by the massive King Fire.

A briefing on the emergency project was presented by PCWA staff at a December 8th meeting of the PCWA Board of Directors. Director of Technical Services Brent Smith said heavy rains create the potential for burned timber on steep hillsides along the river canyon to enter the river and flow down to PCWA’s Ralston Afterbay Reservoir. The U.S. Forest Service expects that the situation could pose problems during large storm events for several years.
