Fiscal Impact/Change to Net County Cost
The County of El Dorado (County) will incur no cost to have Harry and Jean Walsh quitclaim their easement; therefore there is no fiscal impact or change to Net County Cost.

Background
The Community Development Agency Transportation Division (Transportation) is currently in the process of finalizing the U.S. 50/Missouri Flat Road Interchange Improvements - Phase 1B Project (Project). As part of this process, Transportation is clearing title encumbrances on parcels that the County acquired as part of the Project. These parcels will be granted to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) once the titles have been cleared.

The County acquired portions of 15 parcels for the Project. On what is now County-owned assessor’s parcel number 325-180-29, there exists an easement that was granted in 1964 to the owners of assessor’s parcel number 325-180-09.
