Concern Over Projected Drop in Folsom Lake Levels

Posted: 6/19/2015

FOLSOM, CA (MPG) - At its June 4th meeting, the Placer County Water Agency (PCWA) Board of Directors expressed grave concern over the projected drop in water levels at Folsom Lake. Reacting to an order last week by the State Water Resource Control Board to conserve cold water supplies in the Shasta Reservoir system, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation is releasing water from Folsom Reservoir at a rate that could drop lake levels within a few feet of the water supply outlet that serves the City of Roseville, City of Folsom, and San Juan Water District.

“If the current plan remains unchanged and we experience a dry fall, we could see half a million people in the region without water,” PCWA General Manager Einar Maisch said. “This could, in effect, destroy the entire region’s economy.”

Auburn Chamber Supports Small Business Regulation

Posted: 6/5/2015

AUBURN, CA (MPG) - The Board of Directors of the Auburn Chamber of Commerce has voted to support AB 19 (Chang), which would require the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (Go-BIZ) to review all regulations affecting small businesses. This will help determine whether the regulations need to be amended in order to become more effective, less burdensome or less costly on small businesses.

“Small businesses are disproportionately impacted by costly regulations because, unlike larger businesses, they can’t afford to hire specialists to help them comply with all the paperwork and other requirements of detailed and lengthy regulations,” said Auburn Chamber of Commerce CEO Kevin Hanley.
