Supervisors to Review Regional Sewer Agreement, Other Issues at Tuesday Meeting in Auburn

August 03, 2012

In March, the Placer County Board of Supervisors agreed to participate in development of the regional sewage system, rather than upgrade the existing treatment plant. At next Tuesday’s Supervisors’ meeting, the Board will consider signing the Design and Environmental Review Agreement with the City of Lincoln for the Regional Sewer system.

The Board will also be asked to give staff direction on both negotiating the Construction and Initial Operations Agreement for the Regional Sewer, and project funding alternatives for Sewer Maintenance District 1 (SMD 1) and the City of Auburn.

The regional alternative will pump wastewater from North Auburn, and potentially the City of Auburn, through a buried, pressurized pipeline for treatment at the Lincoln Wastewater Treatment and Reclamation Facility. The City of Lincoln is taking the lead on designing, conducting environmental review, constructing and initially operating the system. Lincoln’s initial focus is on refining alternative alignments and preparing environmental documents.

In other actions, Board will be asked to approve agreements with the cities of Auburn, Colfax and Lincoln and the Town of Loomis for animal services in those jurisdictions. On a contractual basis, Placer County provides animal sheltering services. In the past three years, 2,199 animals were provided services by the County. During the same three year period, the County responded to 4,144 calls for assistance from contract city residents related to stray animals, animal bites, and dangerous and wild animals.

The contracts will total $294,320 in the first year. In 2005, the County and the contracting jurisdictions agreed to full cost recovery for services provided.

Also at next Tuesday’s meeting, the Board will be asked to award a contract to the lowest responsible and responsive bidder for the installation of a traffic signal and lighting at Auburn-Folsom Road and King Road. The winning bid was for $234,211, and was made by Pacific Excavation, Inc., of Elk Grove, California.

The project will install a traffic signal, lighting and advanced flashing beacons. A traffic analysis of the intersection was performed prior to bid solicitation and the results indicated the volume of traffic at the intersection has reached levels that a signal is now warranted.

The Board of Supervisor will meet in Board Chamber, 175 Fulweiler Ave., Auburn, on Tue., Aug. 7, 2012. The meeting begins at 9 a.m. To see the meeting agenda, please click on this web link: AGENDA
