The ideal consultant will have a solid understanding of all applicable rules, regulations, and guidance including but not limited to the rules and requirements for Federal Grants )2 CFR 200(, Public Assistance Debris Management Guide FEMA 325, etc., and provide for the accountability of all work items to satisfy FEMA’s auditing requirements.

Interested parties may view the Request for Proposals on the County’s website at http://calaverasgov.us/. Proposals are due no later than 4:00 PM on January 27, 2017, the Calaveras County Administrator’s Office, 891 Mountain Ranch Road, San Andreas, CA 95249-9709.

Dead Trees Hazardous

So we are still waiting for this program to be started?
The trees are now much more of a hazard with dead rotted roots, and saturated soil.
The dangerous conditions keep increasing. Maybe when someone dies there will be a renewed sense of urgency, and the trees will be removed making our roads safer.

    You pay for it then, since money doesn't matter to you.

      Most of the cost is borne by the State and FEMA.
      If they can print $ for the Afghanistan, Iraq wars and more, they can print some $ for dead tree removal.

        So wait for them to pay for it, or do it now and pay for it ourselves.

    Worst run county in Calif, Iswear to God it is.
    Look at Tuolumne area, their dead tree removal has been non stop. I'm taking it, all these no go problems here is because of the idiots who were voted into our BOS who make all these important decisions of doing nothing.

Calaveras, worst run county in the state

Wow, the county here sure is on the ball and moving at a furiously pace.
Over in Tuolumne county their tree work has been non-stop. Now they have a $2 million plus, grant being voted on for tree removal on private property for people who can't afford removal of trees near their residence. AND HERE? THEY CAN'T EVEN HAVE SANDBAGS ON HAND.
Calaveras County is probably the worst run county in the State of California.
I sure hope the new BOS has been taking notes on what not to do, these new elected officials have a huge mess to clean up, and they need to look into why this county is run so inefficient and reverse course to the 21st century

    The have Sonora, big businesses, and a tax revenue of multiple times of Calaveras. We like to kill any and all local businesses and growth potential, and I'm not referring to just the Cannabis ban.
