Below INSIDE THIS WEEK By Kelci Parks @FBAdvocateNews on Twitter A large crowd showed up to the City Council meeting on Monday to voice support for Overtime Brewery, a company attempting to open craft beer manufacturing facility within an already exist- ing building at 190 E. Elm Street. A brewing system of up to 1,500 barrels per year is proposed. In addition to the proposed brewery, accessory retail as well as food and beverage services will be in- cluded in the project. The brewery is subject to city water and wastewater fees, in- cluding capacity fees. The issue brought to council for direction was the calculation of those fees. Capacity fees pay for a new us- er's fair share of capital improve- ments of the water and wastewa- ter systems. There were two different ways of calculating the brewery's ca- pacity fees laid out for council members. If the facility is broken down into three functional areas (brewery, retail, restaurant/bar), the total water and sewer capac- ity fees are $59,684. If it's simply considered brewery and retail, the total capacity fees are $30,384.

Just after 6 p.m. on Wednesday, deputies with the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office were dispatched to the report of a male juvenile who was vandal- izing a vehicle in the 29000 block of Highway 20. It was reported that the juve- nile was using a screw driver, a crowbar and a hammer to vandal- ize a gray minivan parked on the edge of the roadway. While en route to the loca- tion, deputies received updated information that the minivan had been reported stolen out of Willits.

The Mendocino Solid Waste Management Authority is col- lecting public comments on the draft until June 24. The June 16 public meeting will be held at 6 p.m. at the Fort Bragg Town Hall. A lthough the Mendocino County Board of Supervisors has been invited to attend, it will not be a joint meeting between the Fort Bragg City Council or the board as in the past. "The new Central Coast Trans- fer Station would replace the ex- isting solid waste transfer and disposal system, owned by the county of Mendocino and city of Fort Bragg, and operated by Solid Waste of Willits and Em- pire Waste Management, for the central coast," according to the proposal detailed in the EIR. T he new transfer station would be housed off Highway 20 on a 17-acre site within the Jack- son Demonstration State Forest. The site was chosen by the city and county in 2013. A new station, in part, would create a more efficient process by eliminating the self-haul disposal site in Caspar, and trips to the Willits Transfer Station, the proj- ect's proposal states. In 2013, the EIR states the central coast generated nearly 12,000 tons of solid waste which had to be transferred by Empire Waste management by truck haul pods and debris boxes. As part of the new draft EIR, new information was added on the impacts of the Bishop Pine forest, property transfer between the Russian Gulch State Park and Jackson Demonstration State Forest and project alternatives. Last July, during a joint meet- ing between the Board of Super- visors and the Fort Bragg City CENTRAL COAST TRANSFER STATION EIR posted for public input A map showing the location of the proposed transfer station on Highway 20 east of Fort Bragg. BREWERY » PAGE 7 EIR » PAGE 13 CHILD » PAGE 13 By Kelci Parks @FBAdvocateNews on Twitter A woman was killed Satur- day afternoon when an alleg- edly intoxicated driver crossed the double yellow lines and slammed into her as she drover her 2016 Beta Motorcycle west- bound on Highway 20. At about 4:45 p.m., Jesse Bourdeaux, of Dios Rios, was driving his 2006 Ford F250 eastbound on Highway 20 east of mile post marker 8.22. According to a California Highway Patrol press release on the matter, Bordeaux's level of intoxication was such that he lost control of his vehicle. The Ford left its lane and traveled directly into the path of the mo- torcycle. The woman, who has not yet been identified, was unable to avoid the collision and her mo- torcycle hit the right side of the truck. She sustained major injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision. Bourdeaux was arrested and booked into the county jail for allegedly driving under the in- fluence of alcohol and vehicu- lar manslaughter while intox- icated.
