Coming El Nino May Not End Historic Drought

Posted: 9/18/2015

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - State Climatologist Michael Anderson issued the following statement on potential El Niño conditions:

“California cannot count on potential El Niño conditions to halt or reverse drought conditions. Historical weather data shows us that at best, there is a 50/50 chance of having a wetter winter. Unfortunately, due to shifting climate patterns, we cannot even be that sure.”

The current drought has resulted in observations of new, record-high temperatures and record-low snowpack for California. Five of the lowest 10 snowpacks on record have occurred in the last decade, including the past four years. The seasonal snowpack is a key element to California’s water resources management, modulating winter precipitation into spring runoff for beneficial use through the dry summer.

Two Technicians Make Adjustments to the Plumbing

AUBURN, CA (MPG) - When you think of September, you probably don’t think of your furnace. But A & P Heating and Cooling is insistent that it’s the perfect time to think about a furnace tune-up.

When cold weather arrives, an ill-working or failed furnace can cause undue stress on the family and the pocketbook. This is also the time when a little repair, when left undetected or addressed, has the chance to become a catastrophically expensive repair or replacement.

AUBURN, CA (MPG) - At its August 20th meeting, the Placer County Water Agency (PCWA) Board of Directors approved a resolution that effectively changes the way capacity charges for residential water connections will be assessed. With the change, water connection charges will now be based on lot size as opposed to meter size. The revision takes effect on October 5th, 2015.

“The current method for assessing the water connection charge based on meter size is no longer appropriate based on residential fire system requirements and other factors,” PCWA General Manager Einar Maisch said. “Working with business interests and municipalities in the region, we developed a method that offers greater equity and is financially favorable for current, denser land development trends.”

AUBURN, CA (MPG) - The Board of Directors of the Auburn Chamber of Commerce voted to support H.R. 2647, the Resilient Federal Forests Act of 2015. The act is to provide public, private, and community partners more effective tools to proactively prevent catastrophic fires and to help ensure the safety of residents, firefighters, and Auburn-area businesses.

“The recent death of Michael Hallenbeck, a 21-year-old U.S. Forest Service firefighter from Shingle Springs, in the El Dorado National Forest, is a tragic reminder that our poorly conceived federal laws are creating larger and more destructive catastrophic fires,” said Kevin Hanley, CEO of the Auburn Chamber of Commerce.

PLACER COUNTY, CA (MPG) - Placer County’s investment in road maintenance work is getting a big boost this year.

The Public Works Department maintains more than 1,000 miles of roads in unincorporated areas throughout the county. The county pared back the road maintenance budget significantly during the recession, but has been working to restore budget support since then. The 2015-16 proposed county budget, similar to the budget approved for 2014-15, includes an additional general fund contribution of $1 million for roads.

Brown Signs Compact with United Auburn Indian Community

Posted: 8/21/2015

PLACER COUNTY, CA (MPG) - Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. announced that he has signed a tribal-state gaming compact between the State of California and the United Auburn Indian Community.

The compact reflects a continued commitment by the Tribe to revenue sharing with non-gaming and limited gaming tribes so that the economic benefits of gaming reach tribal governments that have not chosen to operate a tribal casino. Under the terms of this compact, United Auburn will become one of the largest contributors to the Revenue Sharing Trust Fund. The terms also provide a framework for the sharing of gaming revenue with Placer County and other local jurisdictions for fire, law enforcement, public transit, education, tourism, and other services, and provide incentives for investments in renewable energy projects, non-gaming-related economic development projects, and health care facilities that provide a mutual benefit to tribal members and local residents. In addition, up to $9 million may be directed by the Tribe specifically to finance infrastructure projects on non-Indian lands within Placer County that benefit the Tribe and the surrounding community.
