North Bend, Ore. – A Coquille Tribe-owned business has joined the local, state and federal recovery effort in response to the wildfires and resulting floods that have devastated large areas of California.
On Jan. 28 the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Los Angeles District awarded a $15.29 million contract to Tribal One Broadband Technologies, LLC, for emergency debris removal in the Santa Monica debris basin. The project is part of the larger effort to restore the capacity of the drainage basin and reduce the risk of flooding to homes and businesses in Santa Barbara County.
Tribal One CEO Brady Scott said the company is looking forward to this challenge.
“Our team members are ready to get started right away to restore this important part of the region’s flood control infrastructure,” Scott said. “These basins helped save many surrounding communities from more severe damage during the mudslides. Restoring their capacity will help ensure the health and safety of area residents.
“Tribal One has worked with the Army Corps of Engineers on several projects in the past and we’re happy to work with them again to complete their mission in this recovery effort.”
Over the last three years, Tribal One Broadband Technologies has been the lead government contractor for the Coquille Economic Development Corporation, the business arm of the Coquille Indian Tribe. Tribal One companies focus on communications technology, construction and business services.
