Ask County to Clarify Conflicting Message about Fee Program

On the Consent Calendar for Tuesday, June 28, 2016, at 9:00 am, the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors is being asked to approve spending an additional $200,000 on consultants for the Capital Improvement Program/Traffic Impact Mitigation Fee (CIP/TIM Fee) project.  County staff is asking for the additional $200,000 to pay consultants to determine the impacts of Measure E on the CIP/TIM Fee project.

At the same time, the County has issued a Press Release stating that all progress on the CIP/TIM Fee project has been put on hold.  Not only is that contrary to the request for an additional $200,000, it also conflicts with the County’s statement that it will continue collecting comments on the CIP/TIM Fee environmental document until July 5.

How does it make sense to put a project on hold yet continue to request funding for the project and continue accepting comments on the project?

The County’s Press Release is available here:  http://www.edcgov.us/pressreleasedetail.aspx?id=30064772953

The County’s files for the CIP/TIM Fee project are available here:   https://eldorado.legistar.com/LegislationDetail.aspx?ID=2763880&GUID=0276DBB6-19C0-4B0D-B9CF-D3F2384F16A5&FullText=1
