Tree Mortality Town Hall Meeting Tonight

Tree Mortality Town Hall Meeting Tonight

A Town Hall Meeting has been scheduled for this evening at 6:30 p.m. at the Fiddletown Community Center.  The topic of discussion will be tree mortality and the county’s efforts to mitigate hazards to its infrastructure.  The meeting is being sponsored by Supervisor Oneto.  Several programs are in place to help remove these hazard trees for qualifying landowners in Amador County.   The county has received a state grant to remove hazard trees, threatening county infrastructure, primarily county roads and to manage the contracts for tree removal.  Several grants are also still available to assist seniors and low income county residents who need to have dead trees removed before they fall.  The Amador Tree Mitigation Assistance Fund, established by Supervisor Lynn Morgan, is available to help fixed-income senior citizens who do not have the money needed to have the trees taken down.  This fund will pay up to $1,000 per eligible project.  Download the application on the county’s tree mortality webpage or contact the Amador Community Foundation for more information.  Grants will be offered for this program until the money is all spent.
