Here is a recent update on the Last Chance Fuel Treatments from Chris Fischer:
We received additional funding from the Region to completely cover the Last
Chance fuels treatments. This includes both tractor and cable units. These funds
came from Regional surplus of American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA)
The bid process closed last week and we received two bids on Last Chance. The
District and Forest are evaluating the bid packages and I anticipate an award
next week. It also appears that all work will be awarded. I am still not sure if
any work will begin this year, but do think it is doubtful given the still
sluggish economy and other contracts each bidder is currently working on. I'll
let you know of scheduling when I find out.
All in all this is great news for SNAMP and the Last Chance project. It looks
like next year will be a busy one for us. Thanks,
American River Ranger District, Tahoe NF
