Facility Services believes this recommendationis currently being implemented. OnAugust 7, 2007 staff from the County Executive's Office and Facility Services made a formal presentation to the Board of Supervisors seeking affirmation of the updated Capital Facilities Financing Plan which included project priorities and funding strategies. The Burton Creek project is included in this Plan as a Tier'2 projectwith completionslated for FiscalYear 201012011. Facility Services' staff is working directly with client departments on the programmingfor this facility and provides updatesto the County Executive'sOfficeboth formally through scheduled monthly meetings and informallythrough the County's Executive's staff.
The County should take a fast track approachto get the facility built and operationaldue to the building constraints of the Tahoe area.
Facility Services' disagrees with this recommendation. While this is an important project priority for both the Department and the County, Facility Services' is prevented from fast tracking this project by boththe land use processes associatedwith development in the Tahoe area, as well as the proceduraland contractual steps requiredto design, bid and build a project. Facility Services is committed to meeting the currently scheduled completiondate.
