RED BLUFF – The Tehama County Board and Staff will attend Tuesday’s meeting to discuss the possible addition of a new heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system for the Red Bluff Prison.
The discussion of the new unit started early in the COVID-19 pandemic, although some issues arose between departments that pushed the vote back.
“The changes to the prison HVAC system were recognized as necessary by public health at the start of the COVID CARES Act funding discussions,” said County Administrator Bill Goodwin. “There was some confusion about which department was preparing the required contracts. The breakout has brought this to the fore and the project is now accelerating. “
This multilevel vote requires the board to vote on a cash transfer of $ 53,860 that requires a four-fifths vote. From there, a vote will be taken to purchase a packaged AAON roof top air conditioner priced at $ 43,860.
The Tehama County Health Department will request that the board approve another transfer of $ 150,000 from the Federal CARES Relief Fund to the Structure Improvement Fund for the department to install ultraviolet lighting systems.
If approved, a licensed contractor will be called in for the installation.
This point requires a vote of four fifths.
The Ministry of Agriculture will again bring its industrial hemp ordinance to the board of directors in order to forego the second reading and to adopt it.
The Tehama County Regulatory Board meets at 10 a.m. Tuesday at 727 Oak St., Red Bluff. The sessions are free and open to the public. However, due to the pandemic, certain guidelines apply. The number of members from the public is limited and all participants must wear masks.
