Honorable Larry Gaddis, Jr. Presiding Judge, Superior Court September 18,2007 Page 3
The County should take a fast track approach to get the facility built and operational due to the building constraints of the Tahoe area.
RESPONSE: The recommendation will not be implemented because it is not reasonable, practical or feasible to complete construction and occupancy of a replacement facility sooner than 2011. The timeline for this major project ($19.5 million dollars) is based on developing a suitable building site, building space programming, construction drawings and plans, bid proposal and solicitation, reviewing bids, negotiating and awarding construction contract and finally construction and occupancy. However, this Board, the County Executive Officer and the Director of Facilities Services are committed to a replacement facility in Tahoe for the Sheriff and will ensure that the project is completed within the current schedule and time frame.
