Today in Sacramento: Here’s what you need to know for Tuesday

Olympic Museum under discussion

The Placer County Board of Supervisors will discuss proposals for an Olympic Museum at Squaw Valley. The county has examined a property north of Squaw Valley Road where a new museum could spur redevelopment of “blighted commercial facilities.” But the Squaw Valley Ski Museum Foundation has sent two letters to the county expressing its preference to locate the museum at Squaw Valley Park on the other side of Squaw Valley Road. The foundation says it prefers that location because the other site has aesthetic problems with power lines and a nearby substation. The board is scheduled to discuss the matter at 9:15 a.m. at the Resort at Squaw Creek Alpine Ballroom, 400 Squaw Creek Rd., Olympic Valley.

Vote on higher developer fees

The Elk Grove Unified School District board is expected to vote on higher developer fees to pay for school construction. The plan would increase the fee from $4.91 to $5.06 per square foot. It would also authorize the district superintendent to impose a higher “Level 3” fee of $10.12 per square foot if state school construction funds run out. The Elk Grove school board meets in open session at 6 p.m., Robert L. Trigg Education Center Board Room, 9510 Elk Grove-Florin Rd., Elk Grove.

Gold Rush Days redux, sans dirt

The Sacramento City Council will hear an update on the Gold Rush Days, which are returning this Labor Day weekend after being canceled last year due to the drought. The festival used to cover Old Sacramento streets in dirt to give visitors a taste of what Sacramento was like during the Gold Rush. But that required 3,000 gallons of water daily to reduce dust and then 100,000 gallons to clean the streets afterward. This year, festival organizers are foregoing the dirt. The council meets at 6 p.m., council chamber, City Hall, 915 I St., Sacramento.
