Survey: Community Needs for Older Adults


The El Dorado County Health and Human Services Agency, Area Agency on Aging (AAA), in partnership with the Commission on Aging, is conducting a needs assessment survey of older adults in the community. El Dorado County residents aged 60 and older are encouraged to complete the survey, but interested residents of any age may provide their feedback. The survey, which is open through January 3, 2020, may be accessed online at:

"The results of the survey will also help the AAA develop its four-year Area Plan which outlines the services and programs for older adults that will be delivered within our communities."

Survey participants will be asked about their experiences accessing services and resources in the county, problems or challenges they have faced related to aging or retiring in the community, demographic and other information.

Update on Mosquito Road Bridge Project


Mosquito Bridge

On December 10, 2019, the Board of Supervisors will be receiving a presentation from the Department of Transportation regarding the latest Mosquito Road Bridge project developments.

Tuesday, December 10, 2019 at 3 pm
Board of Supervisors Meeting Room
330 Fair Lane, Placerville, CA

The Department of Transportation received federal funds from the Federal Highway Association Highway Bridge Program (HBP) to replace the existing Mosquito Road Bridge (Project) located in a steep canyon of the South Fork of the American River, six miles north of U.S. Highway 50, and 2.3 miles south of the communities of Mosquito and Swansboro. The purpose of the Project is to replace the existing bridge with a functional bridge that meets current design and safety standards. The Project continues to progress through the design phase, right of way, and moving toward preparation for construction. Within the design phase, design details for the bridge are being discussed which includes alternatives for aesthetic treatment, texture, and options for barrier rails. In collaboration with the Health and Human Services Agency, Transportation has discussed safety and height features for the barrier rails on the bridge, signs, emergency telephones, and lighting. Many options are being considered to increase the safety of the bridge.

CPUC Consumer Affairs Portal link for Complaints


If you haven't done so already, please share the CPUC's Consumer Affairs Complaint Portal. They need to hear your feedback on all of the issues relating to the PG&E Power Shutdowns, including LANDLINES NOT WORKING during the shutdown. 

Our office has been advised that each complaint will be addressed and the information collected will help guide new legislation for the utility industry.  In the event the Online Complaint Form has technical issues, there are other options under the CAB Contact Information. 

"The complaints portal of the CPUC’s Consumer Affairs Branch (CAB) exists to assist consumers in resolving disputes involving their regulated utility providers.  Our team of specialized caseworkers will work with you to determine the facts of each case and then interact with the utilities to attempt to resolve any and all problems.  We process thousands of complaints each year and can play a constructive role in mediating difficult issues."
