The CITY reserves the right to reject bids at their sole discretion.

Each BIDDER and CONTRACTOR shall be licensed in accordance with the laws of the State of California including but not limited to Chapter 9, Division 3 of the Business and Professions Code. Any BIDDER or CONTRACTOR not so licensed is subject to the penalties imposed by such law. Each BIDDER is responsible for inspecting the site and for reading and being thoroughly familiar with the CONTRACT DOCUMENTS. The failure or omission of any BIDDER to do any of the foregoing shall in no way relieve any BIDDER from any obligation in respect to his BID. Further, the BIDDER agrees to abide by the requirements under Executive Order No. 11246, as amended, including specifically the provisions of the equal opportunity clause set forth in the SUPPLEMENTAL GENERAL CONDITIONS.

The CITY requests notification of discrepancies in, or omissions from, the CONTRACT DOCUMENTS if any are found by a BIDDER.

A Petition For Probate has been filed by: Barbara Jean Rose in the Superior Court of California, County of Lassen.

THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that: Barbara Jean Rose be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent.

THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed action.)

A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: July 16, 2019, at 10:00 a.m., at the Superior Court of California, County of Lassen, Dept. 2C, Courthouse, 2610 Riverside Dr., Susanville, CA 96130.

If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney.

If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code.

Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law.

You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk.

SUSANVILLE, CA 96130

The Susanville Indian Rancheria (“Tribe”) is requesting proposals/qualifications (“RFP/Q”) by experienced environmental consulting services companies to perform an environmental assessment (“EA”) for the Susanville Indian Rancheria. An original and two copies of the proposals are to be received by the Susanville Indian Rancheria at the Tribal Office, 745 Joaquin Street, Susanville, CA  96130 by 4:30 P.M., Friday, June 14, 2019. It is anticipated that a decision on the proposals will be the evening of Tuesday, June 18, 2019. The Scope of Work may be examined at the following location: Susanville Indian Rancheria, 745 Joaquin Street, Susanville, CA  96130, telephone: 530-257-6264; or it may be requested via email from jmackay@sir-nsn.gov.

The project generally consists of performing an EA, satisfactory to the Bureau of Indian Affairs, on approximately 18.090 acres that the Tribe recently purchased and proposes to place into trust with the United States government. The project also includes a requirement for performing an EA, satisfactory to the City of Susanville, on the same parcel of land for the Tribe to build a new tribal health clinic and proposed commercial offices. The land is undeveloped and has been primarily used for grazing.  An ALTA survey of the land will be performed by the Tribe.  The parcel for this project is identified as Lassen County APN 103-190-06-11.

The EA process will involve project coordination, NEPA and CEQA documentation, assistance in acquiring environmental permits, and assistance in negotiating agreements with local governments and businesses.  Each proposer should be familiar with the regulations governing the fee-to-trust process for Indian tribes and have the ability to analyze and document the environmental consequences associated with the construction of a new tribal health clinic and businesses. Further, the proposer must be familiar with the various agencies that must be contacted during the environmental assessment process such as the United States Fish and Wildlife Service; Army Corps of Engineers; and the State Historic Preservation Office. The Susanville Indian Rancheria has its own Tribal Historic Preservation Office (THPO) that is available to assist in this process.

The Susanville Indian Rancheria reserves the right to reject any or all proposals.

Other streets require a simple edge grind and thin overlay (up to 0.25′). Localized areas have also been determined to need isolated base rock repair and re-establishment of a proper structural section. The consultant shall provide supporting materials and construction related testing along with related engineering services per the following:

• Conducting laboratory analysis tests of treated and untreated bases and basement soils in accordance with the City of Susanville’s Quality Assurance Program;

• Conducting asphalt testing for asphalt concrete, asphalt cement, and liquid asphalt in accordance with the City of Susanville’s Quality Assurance Program, attached as Attachment ‘2’.

• Perform other quality control related services in the field as detailed on Page 1 and following regarding field representative in the observation and making of professional opinions regarding the contractor’s efforts to ensure the Contractor’s delivery of proper materials and application methods.

The tests to be performed shall meet all FHWA requirements for quality control and, at a minimum, be at the frequency indicated in the Testing Frequency Table or as directed by the City Engineer. The number of tests to be performed is provided in the 2017 Construction Manual, Chapter 6 at Table 6-1.13 and the project specifications for testing of aggregate material used in the production of asphalt.
