Supervisors to vote on contract for Bost House renovations

The Nevada County Board of Supervisors is scheduled Tuesday to vote on a contract for the renovation of the Bost House.

The board will meet at 9 a.m. at the Eric Rood Administrative Center, 950 Maidu Ave., Nevada City.

County officials had hoped to award a construction contract earlier this year, though their first Request for Proposals garnered no submissions. That led them to alter the project and again issue an RFP.

Bill Litchfield Construction Inc. is now set to perform the renovations for $555,275.

The county’s budget, $460,000, comes from a Community Development Block Grant. The rest of the funds comes from the county’s Health & Human Services Agency, said Stephen Monaghan, chief information officer.

Construction should begin this year, if supervisors approve the contract. Its completion is expected by late March.

The Bost House, at 145 Bost Ave., Nevada City, needs renovations because of its failing infrastructure.

The facility will help homeless veterans and assist patients in getting housing after treatment. It’ll have 16 beds for alcohol and drug treatment, which could expand to 19 beds.

The Bost House has been closed since about April 1.

In other matters the board will:

• Vote on appointing Supervisor Ed Scofield to the county’s Agricultural Advisory Commission. Supervisor Dan Miller would serve as an alternate to the commission.

• Enter a closed-door session to discuss the case of Yelavich v. Nevada County. The case, which the county won, focused on the construction of a fence on a portion of the Emigrant Trail. The county opposed the fence.
