Indian Gaming Local Benefit Committee to Meet
The Placer County Indian Gaming Local Community Benefit Committee (LCBC) will meet on Wednesday, February 8 to plan for this year's grant cycle.
As required by state law, the committee was formed last year to award grant funds to local government agencies from the Indian Gaming Distribution Fund, and established to help offset impacts associated with tribal gaming. This year the county's allocation is estimated at more than $470,000. In 2005, the grants funds available to Placer County agencies totaled more than $383,000.
Members of the committee include Placer County Supervisors Bruce Kranz and Robert Weygandt, Lincoln Mayor Ray Sprague, Rocklin City Council Member Brett Storey, Roseville Mayor Pro Tem Rocky Rockholm, and United Auburn Indian Community representatives Jessica Tavares and Julie Huff.
The committee will meet from 1 to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, February 8, at the Materials Recovery Facility, 3033 Fiddyment Road, near Roseville. The agenda is available on the Placer County Web site
