County reviews possible road name change policy

“Let’s say this guy has a site and it’s not common knowledge and then an assessment is done and there’s something wrong,” said Williams. “Red-flags are brought up all over his property but then it’s too much to fix it and now he’s black-balled as a contaminated site.”

Goodman explained that the program was a good idea, however to rural areas it isn’t practical.

“The problem is money,” said Goodman. “There’s no guaranteed money for the reclamation. They’re just using their money so these places can stay on their radar but it doesn’t help illuminate the problem; it’s a good program, but it just doesn’t help rural areas.”

Board agreed to Williams’ proposal that a ordinance be written to insure space on local towers for county use.

Board approved of County Engineer Whitney Nelson to contact the Department of Transportation about doing an assessment of Sutter Creek Bridge.

“It’s retained some damage and it is on the list of emergency items, however the government is moving very slow and this is steadily becoming a matter of public safety,” said Nelson.

Board agreed to Commissioner Bill Parish and David Whitaker taking the place of Merchant and Williams on the 2014 Canvassing Board.
