FAIRFIELD — Solano County officials announced Monday that in response to Sunday’s earthquake, the Board of Supervisors will consider adopting a resolution Tuesday declaring Solano County in a state of emergency.
So far the extent of damage in county facilities in Vallejo described as “minor” is approximately $750,000, according to a press release. County officials have also been advised that there is substantial private property damage to more than 70 buildings within the city of Vallejo.
“Our tour of the county facilities in Vallejo showed they sustained minor damage and we’re working diligently to restore county services as quickly as possible,” said Supervisor Linda Seifert, chairwoman of the Board of Supervisors, in the press release. “Our discussion at the board meeting (Tuesday) will help bring state and federal resources to assist in this natural disaster.”
The board will also consider adopting a resolution ratifying the proclamation of the state of emergency declared Sunday by the county administrator. It also gives the county’s auditor-controller staff the ability to prepare and process all paperwork needed to seek reimbursement for county resources used to respond to the earthquake.
