The Placer County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association (DSA) has filed a second-amended writ of mandate in its lawsuit against Placer County. Both parties have been in negotiations since March 2018.

This past week the Greater Sacramento Economic Council held a tour of the region for a group of entrepreneurs interested in investing in the area.

One of the council’s selling points in competing with other California cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles is relative affordability. It can be up to 30 percent cheaper to live in Sacramento than in the Bay Area.
