AMENDMENT TO AGREEMENT 2021-025 between Feather River Forestry, LLC and the County of Sierra for the Upper North Yuba Forest Health and Resilience Project was discussed at the Board of Supervisors’ meeting July 18th in Loyalton. Transportation Director Bryan Davey explained this was an extension of an agreement already in place for Sierra Nevada Conservancy (SNC) grant. They have a $500,000 grant to do the forestry project on the upper North Yuba. This is a grant from SNC that will fund the first forestry project under the Master Stewardship Agreement. He said they have a couple others in the pipeline that will be much more substantial. Board Chair Dryden called it a huge project for Sierra County. Davey looked forward to have the Request for Proposals (RFP) by the following day and would evaluate to see what kind of actual treatments can get done. It’s a good opportunity to showcase what the county can do. Board Chair Sharon Dryden remarked they have a robust fire safe council that created the opportunity to go out and get grants like this. Davey stated County Forester Danielle Bradfield has been bringing benefits into the county. The amendment was approved unanimously.
