Placer county satellite office opens in Tahoe City
July 31, 2014
TAHOE CITY, Calif. — An office suite in a Placer County-owned building in Tahoe City was recently retrofitted to provide office space for Fifth District Supervisor Jennifer Montgomery; County Executive Officer David Boesch; Jennifer Merchant, Tahoe Manager for the County Executive Office; and Steve Kastan, Tahoe field representative, among others.
The meeting room will also be the ongoing site Montgomery's monthly "Coffee with the Supervisor," held the fourth Thursday of every month at 9 a.m., according to a press release from the county.
The building at 775 North Lake Blvd. has been utilized for several years by the Placer County Community Development Resource Agency, Planning Services, Building Department, the Assessor, and Environmental Health, and officials have maintained offices in the two-story building.
Those services will continue on the first floor, according to the press release; when a tenant on the upper floor did not renew the lease, the county chose to further consolidate and enhance county functions in the location.
"I'm looking forward to being able to meet with constituents in a county facility that is centrally located and affords privacy, has a meeting room and is adjacent to other county departments," Montgomery said in a statement. "I've held innumerable meetings in coffee shops and restaurants in the eastern end of the county. And while I will continue to patronize local businesses, this gives us a venue that recognizes the importance of Eastern Placer County to the larger County generally."
Boesch, who travels regularly to the lake for county business, will also have an office to meet with residents and stakeholders.
"The opening of the … office upstairs alongside the Environmental Health Department and the Assessor's Office, will enhance the one-stop shop with easy accessibility to the district supervisor and key county staff," Boesch said in a statement.
The county also has offices at other locations on the North Shore, including the sheriff's substation in Burton Creek in Tahoe City' Department of Public Works offices in Tahoe Vista' and Health and Human Services offices and clinics in Kings Beach and Carnelian Bay.
