Veterans Stand Down - Youth Commission Among Topics on Board Agenda

Published on July 03, 2014

A resolution supporting the 2014 Gold Country Veterans Stand Down event is among the key agenda items that will be considered by the Placer County Board of Supervisors during a meeting in Auburn Tuesday July 8.

The Veterans Stand Down event will be held September 16-18 at the Placer County Fairgrounds in Roseville. The event is designed to provide veterans with the resources, materials and contacts needed to sustain their well-being. The Stand Down is sponsored by the Gold Country Chaplaincy and will be open to veterans from Placer County and neighboring counties.

Board members will also be asked to approve combining the existing Horseshoe Bar and Penryn municipal advisory councils to form a single Horseshoe Bar-Penryn MAC. Third District Supervisor Jim Holmes is proposing the merger to create opportunities for cohesion between the two communities on issues that impact both. The proposed Horseshoe Bar-Penryn MAC is slated to meet on the fourth Tuesday of every other month beginning on September 23.

Additionally at Tuesday’s meeting, the board is scheduled to:

  • Receive the 2013-14 annual report from the Placer County Youth Commission;
  • Consider approving a three-year agreement with Pride Industries for park-maintenance services at Dry Creek Community Park, Doyle Ranch Park and Sabre City Park in western Placer County; and
  • Special recognition to the Health and Human Services Department for receipt of a national award for their Human Services Call Center.

The July 8th meeting will take place at 9 a.m. in the Board of Supervisors Chambers at the County Administrative Center, 175 Fulweiler Avenue in Auburn. The entire board agenda is available online at Board of Supervisors.
