STATEMENT OF MEETING PROCEDURES - Read by Clerk.
PUBLIC COMMENT – 1) Christine Rydell, Placer County Representative for State Senator Sam Aanestad, provided an update on keeping Lake Clementine, the Auburn State Recreation Area and regionally Folsom Lake and Natomas Lake open. State Parks secured an agreement with the Auburn Boat Club to keep Lake Clementine open an additional year to help Federal and State Agencies work to find a long term permanent funding solution. 2) Norman Gonzales, Representative for Congressman McClintock, said they worked with the Bureau of Reclamation to find funding streams to keep Lake Clementine open. Unfortunately, the way the Bureau did that was by eliminating the contract with Cal Fire, putting the canyon at risk. Lake Clementine is now self-funded and off the table although now the Auburn State Recreation Area is threatened. Mr. Gonzales said they have been working with the Bureau to establish the full level of funding for health & public safety and it has been made clear to the Bureau that they need to find the $500,000 that is lacking to keep the Auburn State Recreation open. Supervisor Holmes thanked the Congressman for his hard work on the issue. Supervisor Montgomery thanked the Congressman for his work on the Auburn State Recreation Area as it is important locally and regionally.
SUPERVISOR’S COMMITTEE REPORTS – Supervisor Holmes said he attended the waste water forum yesterday and was impressed how Congressman McClintock handled that. Norman Gonzales, Representing Congressman McClintock, said waste water has become a significant issue throughout the State of California with increasing regulations that change when trying to re-permit a facility. Supervisor Montgomery announced the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) Governing Board did have an adverse ruling handed down relating to TRPA Shore Zone Policy. Placer County has some projects that have some policy implications as it relates to this ruling.
