 Telephone Reassurance Program for El Dorado County Residents


Being alone is one of the greatest fears older adults have as they grow older. The YANA Program has been credited with saving the lives of many older adults who live alone and have fallen or become sick during the night. This FREE service allows older adults to find comfort and security knowing that someone will be checking on them on a daily basis and in the event that something does happen, family or friends will be notified.

- Calls are made daily, before 10:00 a.m.

- If a participant does not answer the phone after several attempts are made to reach them, a series of steps follow to assure their safety and well-being.

- When the above attempts fail and contact with participant cannot be made, local Law Enforcement is called to check on the participants well-being.

For more information call 530-621-6255

Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians
Event Center Notice of Preparation
Casino Event Center


The Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians (Tribe) has released their NOP on March 20, 2020.  Because this is Tribal land, the County does not have land use authority over the event center project. Additionally, the Tribe’s hotel project is underway and was already analyzed in a prior Tribal Environmental Impact Report (“TEIR”) and, so long as the Tribe’s hotel remains consistent with the hotel project already analyzed, it is expressly exempted from additional environmental review under the Compact. The TEIR process is outlined in the State Compact. While the Tribe does not have to obtain the County’s approval to pursue the event center project, the State Compact requires it to prepare a TEIR for public review and negotiate with the County in good faith to reach an intergovernmental agreement that provides mitigation for significant environmental effects from the project and mitigation and compensation for any impact to public services and public safety, including law enforcement, fire protection, medical services, emergency medical services, and other public services.

Census 2020
Local Funding Depends on You!

2020 Census

Have you filled out your Census?

The 2020 Census will impact the future of every community and determine the allocation of more than $800 billion dollars annually in federal funding for social services, schools, infrastructure, and many other vital programs that serve the families in our communities.

The census not only gathers important data, but also:

  • Informs planning decisions for federal, tribal, state and local government;
  • Informs organizational decisions (e.g., where to locate, size of market, etc.) of businesses and non-profits; and
  • Distributes federal dollars to states;
  • Apportions representation for each state;
  • Redistricts/draws congressional and state legislative districts, school districts and voting precincts.

For every individual that goes uncounted, El Dorado County loses about $2,000 per person, per year, for healthcare, transportation, education, and more.

It's mandated by the U.S. Constitution in Article 1, Section 2: The U.S. has counted its population every 10 years since 1790.  

The U.S. Census Bureau is bound by law to protect your answers and keep them strictly confidential. The law ensures that your private information is never published and that your answers cannot be used against you by any government agency or court.  By law, the Census Bureau cannot release any identifiable information about you, your home, or your business, even to law enforcement agencies. That's protected under Title 13 of the U.S. Code.
