About Grading Contractor

Grading contractors are specialized professionals who work with pieces of heavy industrial equipment called graders. These machines are utilized in smoothing and flattening surfaces of concrete or other building bases or surfaces. They are also skilled at working under different weather conditions around the world. These professionals have to be specially trained in order for them to perform the tasks that they do so well. Here is a small overview of the qualifications that these contractors must have before being allowed on to work.

A person who wants to become a grading contractor needs to have a diploma or an equivalent certificate from an appropriate institution that teaches courses in this field. Usually the programs take about one year to complete. The program may also be part of a trainee internship in a construction company, where you gain real-life experience on excavation and grading related activities.

After completing the program, the grader should be able to demonstrate that he/she has the necessary knowledge and training for handling excavation and grading equipment in the construction industry. It is important that a person who wishes to become a grading contractor has sufficient knowledge in all aspects of the field, including earth sciences and mechanical skills. An excavating contractor must be skilled in mechanical drafting and computer-aided design (CAD).

As a rule, grading contractors start out by working as contractors on residential and commercial projects. Gradually, their skills will grow and they will be able to take on more varied assignments. This means that the time between projects will shorten, and the grader will have to get even more skills and expertise. After all, it takes many years to become an expert in any field, and it takes even more time and effort to master the skills and acquire experience in one particular field before branching out into another.

Some of the tasks that grading contractors will perform include excavation, site preparation, leveling and leveling, trenching, and paving. The typical day at a job site will include these tasks. They may also be involved in clearing away excess dirt, grading roads, performing some form of excavation work, grading the soil, installing heavy equipment, and using some form of electronic grading equipment. In today's society, heavy equipment is quite common, especially in urban areas where most construction projects are carried out.

A typical excavation job usually takes two to three days, but depending on the size and complexity of the job will vary. Contractors may choose to use a compact excavator for this kind of job, which is basically a piece of equipment which is able to travel through small earth circles and compact the soil to a level of one inch. All of this can be done at a rate of approximately fifteen to twenty feet per day. A grading contractor is an excellent choice for getting soil samples and for grading roads and underground pipes. When you choose to hire a professional grading contractor, you will be pleased with their high quality of workmanship and the assurance that they are well-equipped to handle whatever comes their way.

 

About Marysville

Marysville is located on the ancestral land of the Maidu, who occupied the area for 10,000 years prior to the arrival of Jedediah Smith and trappers from the Hudson Bay Company in 1828, who were the first non-natives to explore the area. Spanish and Mexican explorers never reached that far north on the Feather River. In 1842, John Sutter leased part of his Rancho New Helvetia land to Theodore Cordua, a native of Mecklenburg in Germany, who raised livestock, and in 1843 built a home and trading post he called New Mecklenburg. The trading post and home was situated at what would later become the southern end of 'D' Street, Marysville's main street. In 1844, the Mexican government granted Cordua his own land grant, Rancho Honcut.

In 1848, Charles Covillaud, a former employee of Cordua, discovered riches in the gold fields and bought half of the Cordua ranch. In January 1849, Michael C. Nye and William Foster, brothers-in-law of Covillaud's wife, Mary Murphy, a survivor of the Donner Party, bought the other half of the Cordua ranch. They later sold their interest to Covillaud. In October of the same year, Covillaud sold most of the ranch to Jose Ramirez, John Sampson, and Theodore Sicard. During the Gold Rush, the ranch became a stopping point for the riverboats from Sacramento and San Francisco that brought prospectors to the digging grounds. Even today a sign on the roadside as one enters Marysville describes it as the "Gateway to The Gold Fields."

In 1850, Covillaud, Ramirez, Sampson, and Sicard hired Augustus Le Plongeon, a French surveyor, to create a plan for a town called Jubaville, later called Yubaville. Stephen J. Field, a newly relocated attorney, purchased 65 lots of land and drew up proper deeds for land being sold. Then, after just three days in the mining camp, he accepted the nomination to run for alcalde, a Mexican official, which combined the duties of a mayor and justice of the peace, in a new government that was being formed. On January 18, 1850, Field defeated his rival, who had been in town just six days, and a town council was elected. That night, the townsfolk decided to name the new town Marysville after Charles Covillaud's wife, Mary Murphy Covillaud, the former wife of William Johnson of Johnson's Ranch, and one of the surviving members of the Donner Party. After Marysville was incorporated by the new California Legislature, the first mayor was elected in 1851. Field went on to become one of the longest sitting members of the United States Supreme Court.

A post office was established at Marysville in 1851. By 1853, the tent city had been replaced by brick buildings. In addition to the brick merchant buildings, Marysville had developed mills, iron works, factories, machine shops, schools, churches and two daily newspapers. The population was almost 10,000. By 1857, Marysville had become one of the largest cities in California, due to its strategic location. Over $10 million in gold was shipped from the banks in Marysville to the U.S. Mint in San Francisco. The city's founders imagined Marysville becoming "The New York of the Pacific."

Debris loosed by hydraulic mining above Marysville raised the riverbeds of both the Feather and the Yuba Rivers and rendered the city vulnerable to flooding during winter storms and spring run-offs. The city built a levee system that is still maintained today. The levee system sealed the city off and has made additional city growth virtually impossible; as such the population has not increased much since their construction and Marysville is known as "California's Oldest 'Little' City." The hydraulic mining debris choked the Feather River and soon the riverboats could not make the trip to Marysville.

Marysville was home to a significant Chinese American community beginning in the 1850s. While many Chinese were driven forcibly from their homes throughout California between 1870 and 1900, Marysville became a place of refuge for them and was one of the few Chinatowns in the state that did not experience violence. The Chinese Bok Kai Temple claims to be the oldest continually operating Taoist temple in America, and a Chinese New Year festival has been celebrated in Marysville since 1880. The historical importance of Marysville to the Chinese-American community has been imprinted in its language. In Cantonese, Marysville is known as Sahm Fou (三埠, Third City); Sacramento Yee Fou (二埠, Second City); and San Francisco Dai Fou (大埠, The Big City).

There was also an active Jewish merchant community in Marysville from the Gold Rush era through the early years of the twentieth century. Nathan Schneider established Schneider's Clothing in 1862, it was advertised as "the Home of Values", and it existed until the late 1980s. Isaac and Simon Glazier ran the Old Corner Cigar Store from 1851 to 1862, when they moved to San Francisco. J.H. Marcuse founded the Western and Palace Cigar Store. Philip Brown advertised himself as "Marysville's leading tailor, pants made to order from $4.00 up and P. Brown's specialty, White Labor Overall." Union Lumber, established in 1852 by W.K. Hudson and Samuel Harryman, was later purchased by bookkeeper H.J. Cheim, and is still owned by the Cheim family.

In 2010, the Marysville City Council made a decision to sell a portion of Washington Square Park for development of a commercial shopping center, part of an effort to increase tax revenue. This came after the city won a costly legal battle brought on by the Citizens to Preserve Marysville's Parks, a group of citizens opposed to development in the city's green spaces. A mitigation measure to offset the loss of city green space is technically within city limits, but falls outside the city's levee ring.
