Demolition started on Saturday, November 18th with two excavators on site. Yatteau told of one “hold out” who required County Adult Protective Services and County services to find him a place with first and last month’s rent.
Also on Saturday a resident of the Sierra Valley Apartments was reported standing on a trailer they were attempting to take down. Sierra County Sheriff’s Office and CHP responded.
There was a lot of movement with hauling of travel trailers. On November 14th there was a Sierra County Sheriff’s incident of a truck pulling a large trailer on Beckwith Street at 5:38 p.m. with no lights and the pop-out extended but the deputy was unable to locate it.

In talking to Tom Yatteau, Assistant Director of Operations for California Receivership Group, there is “no exact schedule” for finishing the project; to clean up the mountains of trash and debris. He spoke of a need to get funding and prior approval, part of the Receivership. The court date for Sierra County Superior Court is December 8th.
In the meantime, there is no security; just a caretaker on site.
According to the Court Order, the property is to remain vacated.
The Receiver is to enter into contracts and employ a licensed contractor as necessary to correct the conditions cited in the Notice and Order to repair or Abate; to collect rents and income, including assessment from the property; to use any rents and income from the property to pay for the cost of rehabilitation
and repairs determined by the Court as necessary to correct the conditions; to borrow funds to pay for repairs necessary to correct the conditions and secure debt with a super-priority lien on the property.
Receiver is permitted to fund an initial $25,000 Receiver’s Certificate with super priority status to cover costs of securing property, cleaning it out, getting contractors in to bid the cost o f rehabilitation and any of the other initial costs of the receivership.
Funds authorized by the Certificate are to be used to preserve and maintain the property and help ensure rehabilitation and cleanup of said property as the Receiver sees fit to order.
The community is now anxious for rehabilitation!
