Supervisors may approve juvenile hall builder

Jeff Munson, Tribune city editor

A juvenile hall in South Lake Tahoe could be under construction as soon as the weather allows if the Board of Supervisors approves the contractor at its Tuesday meeting.

Supervisors will consider hiring United Construction of Reno, which came in with the lowest bid of $6.3 million.

The 40-bed facility will be on Al Tahoe Boulevard between South Tahoe Middle School and the jail. The two-story building will be located on a 4-acre parcel of land conveyed to El Dorado County by the Lake Tahoe Unified School District.

In addition, supervisors will consider transferring $79,600 from the Criminal Justice Facilities Construction fund to the South Lake Tahoe Juvenile Hall trust fund and approve using up to $405,714 from the trust fund for project-related purposes.

The meeting begins at 8 a.m. Tuesday, at the Board of Supervisors Meeting Room, 330 Fair Lane, Building A in Placerville.
