Heat wave

It's getting warmer, but there's still time to prepare for the height of the heat! BE informed. HAVE a plan.

Take a look at tips HERE  

* Drink water BEFORE you get thirsty and throughout the day. It's much easier to STAY hydrated than BECOME hydrated.

* If you have to be outside, take frequent water and shade breaks.

* Warm air doesn't always mean warm water. While waterways are a good way to cool, they're running fast and cold. Be safe: wear a life jacket at all times. See more tips here: https://news.caloes.ca.gov/cold-water-dangers/

* High heat can be dangerous to the elderly, immobile and very young. Check on your neighbors who fall into those categories.

* If you're looking for a place to escape the heat, visit one of the County's local libraries for some respite. Click here for locations and hours. https://eldoradolibrary.org/hours-and-locations/

Our office has been receiving many complaints about the potholes on SR 49. We have contacted CalTrans several times on this issue and received the following response from Steve Nelson, Caltrans District 3 Chief Public Information Officer: "Maintenance Engineering staff is pursuing an emergency contract for repairs but has to do a damage assessment first to justify the emergency funding. I have no doubt there’s a need for it, but their workload is high due to all the storm damage throughout the 11 counties that encompass District 3. I will provide an update to Supervisor Parlin’s office as soon as I have it."

We will send out information when we get an update from Caltrans.
