Update On Blagen Road Bridge & Additional Storm Damage from Calaveras County Supervisor Oliveira

Arnold, CA...Representatives from CalOES and FEMA met today for three and one half hours with Calaveras County regarding 2017 Storm Damage Recovery. Countywide damages are estimated near 6 Million Dollars. Public Works Director Jeff Crovitz and staff made detailed power point presentations on each damaged location.

While we had been hopeful that today’s meeting would result in an ‘approval’ for the temporary bridge at Blagen Road, we were told by both CalOES and FEMA that the decision regarding the Temporary Bridge would have to be made by their Superiors. FEMA and CalOES Meetings on Blagen Road will occur on May 12 with results and time frames to follow.

Calaveras County continues to do everything within their power and authority to expedite approval for repairs to all of our storm damaged roads maximizing CalOES and FEMA grant funding, we will continue to research ways to expedite approvals. I have been in touch with Assemblyman Frank Bigelow and Congressman Tom McClintock for any assistance that they can offer.

We are hopeful that the May 12th FEMA Cal OES meeting will result in an a positive decision for the temporary Blagen Road Bridge.

    Why have we set ourselves up to rely on "federal grants" to survive? Private individuals have to budget for repairs (either home or vehicle). Why not local government? How about moving Olivera's office or home behind the washed out culvert and see how long it takes for him to figure out how to get it fixed?

      The money we are getting from the federal government isn't "government money" it's the return of the money we had to "give" to them through taxes. This is not a hand out, this is our money that they've been mishandling for us.
