Amador Board of Supervisors Update

The Amador Board of Supervisors discussed ways of directing traffic for the new Harrah’s Northern California Casino onto Buena Vista Road at their meeting yesterday.

Supervisors discussed efforts by the County to direct casino-goers to take the designated Buena Vista Road to Coal Mine Road route rather than other roads in the Buena Vista area that have not been improved.  Along with a traffic sign at the Buena Vista-State Route 88 intersection being installed by the casino, the County had hoped to put additional directional signs on Highway 88.  This proposal has been block by Cal-Trans, which has regulations against advertising specific businesses on official road signs.   The Supervisors proposed signs similar to what is currently in place for the Jackson casino that give direction to the Rancheria, rather than the casino.  County Staff will bring the proposal back to Cal-Trans.  The Board also worked on some budget matters for the upcoming 2019-2020 fiscal year, approving an increase of almost $17,000 to the University of California Extension for a total of just under $150,000 for agricultural education and other services.  The Board also approved a promotions budget of $155,000 paid for with the County’s Transit Occupancy Tax.
