Angels Camp to Approve Contract for Facades to Placerville Contractors
The council will consider the award of a $167,900 contract to American River Construction, of Placerville.
Work to restore the facades on several historic buildings in downtown Angels Camp is expected to begin this summer with approval Tuesday from the City Council.
The council will consider the award of a $167,900 contract to American River Construction, of Placerville, to finish a community development block grant-funded project awarded to the city more than three years ago. The architectural improvements were designed by Murphys’ Rudy Ortega.
The council also will consider allowing up to $50,000 to be spent on any individual facade. State grant guidelines previously set the upper limit at $30,000 and required a 10 percent match from the property owner.
According to consultant Terry Cox, of Sonora, the state will not ding the city for its performance on the grant by making the change. Two buildings that will be part of the project are estimated at $45,000 in work needed to complete the improvements.
The city is also expected to formally adopt a new budget in effect through June 30, 2013. The proposed budget is balanced and the general fund combined with water and wastewater enterprise funds are slated to spend a combined nearly $9.7 million.
