Nevada County Board of Supervisors Meeting Tuesday

The Nevada County Board of Supervisors will be meeting tomorrow (Tuesday) and will have a number of items on the agenda, including one that would make it easier for property owners living in the county to finance the installation of energy efficient improvements. Treasurer Tax Collector Tina Vernon will ask the Board to approve a resolution authorizing the Sierra Valley Energy Authority to accept applications from Property Owners that would be amortized over 5,10,or 20 years, depending on the useful life of the improvement and the amount funded. Then an annual assessment would be placed on the property tax role for collection. Projects could include things like energy efficient rooftops, water heaters, windows, siding and such that are permanently fixed to real property.
Nevada County’s Chief Information Officer Steven Monaghan will also ask supervisors to approve agreements with Climatec LLC and Sunpower Corporation Systems to Implement Energy Efficiency Measures and to Install Solar Energy Generation Facilities at various County Facilities.
Monighan says the projects would be financed by Clean REnewable Energy Bonds over a period of 20 years.
Supervisors will also review implementation of a new Nevada County Vegetation Abatement ordinance that outlines CDA Guidelines for fire and code compliance. Basically it’s to provide a mechanism to encourage property owners to do their own clearing of debris and creating defensible space without being served with an abatement order.
