District 5 Satellite Office Opens in Tahoe City
Published on July 25, 2014
An office suite in a Placer County owned building in Tahoe City was recently retrofitted and now provides shared office space for Fifth District Supervisor Jennifer Montgomery, County Executive Officer David Boesch, the Tahoe Manager for the County Executive Office, Jennifer Merchant, and Tahoe Field Representative, Steve Kastan, among others. The meeting room will be the ongoing site for the monthly "Coffee with the Supervisor" held the 4th Thursday of every month at 9 a.m.
The building is located in the heart of Tahoe City at 775 North Lake Boulevard, and has been utilized for several years by the Placer County Community Development Resource Agency, Planning Services, Building Department, the Assessor, and Environmental Health who have all maintained offices in the two story building. When a tenant on the upper floor did not renew their lease, the county took the opportunity to further consolidate and enhance county functions in one location.
“I’m looking forward to being able to meet with constituents in a county facility that is centrally located and affords privacy, has a meeting room and is adjacent to other county departments,” said Montgomery. “I’ve held innumerable meetings in coffee shops and restaurants in the eastern end of the county. And while I will continue to patronize local businesses, this gives us a venue that recognizes the importance of Eastern Placer County to the larger County generally."
CEO Boesch, who travels regularly to the Lake for county business will also have an office to meet with residents, stakeholders, county staff and myriad others who are involved in county business.
“The county acquired this building several years ago, providing a one-stop shop for locals to conduct their business with the county,” said Boesch. “Easy access to all county development functions including Planning Services, the Building Department and the county ombudsman will continue on the first floor. The opening of the satellite Board of Supervisors/CEO office upstairs alongside the Environmental Health Department and the Assessor’s Office, will enhance the one-stop shop with easy accessibility to the District Supervisor and key county staff. These offices say "Placer County is here for you.""
The county also has several other locations on the North Shore where county offices are located, including the Sheriff’s substation in Burton Creek in Tahoe City, the Department of Public Works offices in Tahoe Vista and Health and Human Services offices and clinics in Kings Beach and Carnelian Bay.
