Monday's Member 9/21/2015 - LACO

     LACO is a full-service, multi-disciplinary consulting firm providing planning, design, engineering, geo-environmental, and construction support services. Founded in 1954, LACO is a locally-owned Certified California Small Business with corporate headquarters in Eureka and offices in Ukiah and Santa Rosa, CA. LACO’s experience in McKinleyville includes various land use planning, fault hazard evaluation, biological survey, water/wastewater treatment, groundwater resource, contaminated soil and groundwater remediation, slope stability analysis, construction materials testing, and special inspection projects.

Featured Project ― Mad River Bluff Erosion Evaluation 
The McKinleyville Community Services District and Humboldt County Department of Public Works retained LACO to evaluate erosion potential along the Mad River Bluffs. LACO’s analysis indicated that even a moderate flood would threaten more erosion and that bluff failure was probable given the geomorphic context of the site. These findings warranted an emergency response to the slope failure, allowing for expediting funding and streamlined permitting to secure an emergency coastal development permit to stabilize the bluff and protect existing structures and infrastructure from further land recession.

Annual MegaMixer a MegaSuccess

Last Thursday, September 27 local businesses and community members came together for the McKinleyville Chamber of Commerce annual MegaMixer at Azalea Hall.  This mixer was different from the average mixer in that 20 businesses were showcased and hosted as compared to the usual single host.  The Chamber's MegaMixer is an opportunity for smaller businesses that might not have the room to host a monthly mixer, don't have a brick and mortar building, or are from out of the area to get much needed exposure.  The mixer was set up in a business expo style with the host businesses each having a table to show off their products and services.  McKinleyville Parks & Rec was selected to receive October's business spotlight.  McKinleyville Community Services District provided the venue again this year and Mad River Radio did a wonderful job with the food and beverages.  This years co-hosts were: Cal - Ore Life Flight, David Hamilton Design, Dalianes Travel, Serv Pro of Eureka, Mary Wallaker - State Farm, McKinleyville Lions Club, Bay Pointe Mortgage, Ceremonies by Design, Eureka Payments, Diane's Sweet Heat, JB Maryn, Wayne's Automotive, Arcata Fire, Klotz Mobile Detail, Shred Aware, McKinleyville Parks & Rec, and Humboldt Human Resources.  The September mixer will be hosted by Miller Farm's Nursery on Thursday the 24th.  See more pictures here.
