Weekly Update #37 - September 14, 2021

Posted on September 14, 2021 at 11:55 PM Comments comments (264)

It's Tuesday! Here's what I've been up to this week. Feel free to email me at [email protected] or text me at (707) 391-3664 to make an appointment. Have a great week!

 

Wednesday:

I dropped in and listed to the HHSA Board meeting. As a friendly reminder I am looking for board member. Here is the link to what the HHSA advisory board does. https://www.mendocinocounty.org/government/health-human-services-agency/hhsa-advisory-board

In the afternoon I attended the Building Bridges B2 Council of all of the agencies and providers that work with B2. This includes UPD and the City of Ukiah. Staffing has been a challenge but they are currently recruiting for more staff. The construction project also has challenges because they have not been able to hire staff that can keep that project (along with all of their other projects) going but they did thank the City staff for working with them to try to move it forward as quickly as possible. As a reminder there is a community clean up on the Second Saturday of each month so that supportive community members can come work with guests and staff to make sure the neighborhood is being kept clean. 

 

Thursday:

Every Thursday I have a meeting I call "Coffee and Conversation" we had some conversations about the Blue Zones Project and the Broadband Council of Mendocino County. I'm very excited about Blue Zones. I think the healthier our community is the better we all are. You know what they say a pound of prevention..... 

I'm concerned that the Broadband project is going to be very expensive and will take a long time to get any level of improved function. Please don't forget to use the Broadband Test website. The data will help better inform our problem and hopefully get us more resources. https://www.mendocinocounty.org/government/executive-office/information-services/speed-test

I was able to join the meeting of the Inland Housing Action Team. This is a group of interested stake holders and community members that want to have more housing in Inland Mendocino County. They are looking for more people to join and would like to take their conference they were going to have to make it virtual. This would be a conference with one meeting for renters and one for landlords. I discussed with them the work I'm trying to do to connect the developer of the new project on Feedlot Lane with future applicants. We also discussed the proposed Bella Vista project south of town across from the Ukiah Valley Athletic Club. 

I had an EDFC Board of Directors Meeting. They are doing a good job of getting loans out and reporting back the results. So far the team of three seems to be working out. 

 

Friday: 

As you know the Agenda comes out on Thursdays. A lot of my time on Fridays is spent reviewing each item, noting the number of attachments so I can make sure that I've read everything. I'm still working with the Clerk of the Board Staff to work with Granicus to make sure that all of the attachments including the Agenda Summary Report are readily visible to everyone. The majority of the information you need to understand an agenda item is in fact in the ASR. It often leads to miscommunication when people for instance review a slide show presentation without the content from ASR. 

 

Saturday:

On Saturday morning I picked up coffee and donuts and headed to the little pocket park on Perkins Street to hold the Hometown Heroes Reunion. about 9-10 folks showed up to socially distance to talk about their service in the military and their role in the community now. We decided that we like the morning meeting on 9/11 and that will be our new tradition. So save the date next year and watch for Ukiah Hometown Heroes on Facebook. Don’t forget they will be up until November 11, so take a stroll down Perkins and check it out.

In the afternoon I worked on a display honoring the 13 US Soldiers that passed away in Afghanistan. 

 

Sunday:

On Sunday morning I went to Zumba and then worked on getting my line dancing certificate. Yes, line dancing. I'm going to start teaching Country Fusion line dancing at Young for Life. This isn't technically Supervisor related but I think that reminding people that fitness and health are good for our community and help our mental health. So stay tuned for Country Fusion and Family Zumba with The Mo You Know. https://www.facebook.com/groups/4345407202233730/

As you know on Sunday afternoon the Hopkins fire started in Calpella. I spent the afternoon and evening engaging with County and State Staff and residents regarding the fire. I’m sorry for those that lost their homes and pets, grateful we didn’t lose any lives.

 

Monday:

Monday during our LAFCO Board meeting Josh Metz mentioned that a truck that normally delivers milk to make ice cream is now delivering water from Ukiah to Fort Bragg, isn't that “sweet”. Supervisor McGourty said that the water being hauled "is a puddle" in terms of municipal water use so people should not be concerned about the amount of water being sent over the hill. We all need to keep conserving and supporting each other.

During the meeting we also discussed and approved the Covelo Updated MSR/SOI and had the introduction of the Ukiah Valley Fire Authority MSR/SOI update to incorporate the City of Ukiah within the Ukiah Valley Fire District. 

I had an overlapping meeting with the NCRA. The NCRA is in the final months of its wind down before it becomes the Great Redwood Trail Board. There are still many hoops to jump through but the NCRA Board is committed to moving us forward. 

I had a lunch meeting at Ford Street to discuss the results of the  first year of the Drug Medi-Cal Pilot. We talked about the myth busting that needs to happen in the community, and the efforts that Ukiah Recovery Center has faced over the last year. I will be asking more questions about Substance Abuse Treatment in our community on my Facebook page. So please make sure you engage or go ahead and call or email me anytime to give me your feedback. 

I had an afternoon of Cannabis Referendum discussions. 

 

 

Tuesday: 

I received an interesting interview today that I wanted to share with you:

MendoLatino conversa con la Dra. María Amelia Viteri sobre género, sexualidad, raza, etnicidad y migración. La importancia de reconocer la diversidad de las personas a la hora de desarrollar políticas públicas y de salud. Esta entrevista fue grabada el 9 de septiembre de 2021 y fue puesta en el aire el lunes 13 de septiembre en KZYX&Z.

Weekly Update #36 - 9/7/21

Posted on September 8, 2021 at 8:05 PM Comments comments (437)
Wednesday
It’s that time of the year for the Hometown Heroes banners to go up. This was a project I worked on with Former Police Chief Chris Dewey. When we were speaking about our struggles recruiting qualified police officers we were talking about how some kids may chose a military career after high school and if we could get them to come back and work as law enforcement officers that would be great because they know the community. About a dozen people had tagged me in a post about Windsor’s banners honoring their military personnel so they Chief and I figured out a plan to bring the banner program to Ukiah. If you haven’t visited the website here is the link. http://ukiahhometownheroes.org We are going to have a small reunion on Saturday so the folks honored on the banners can get together and anyone interested in adding a banner can join us to find out more. We will meet at 8:30a-9:30a in the pocket park on Perkins and then take a walk on Perkins to check out the banners. 
On the first Wednesday of the month I meet with the City Managers office and Council member Brown to discuss issues that affect the City and County. Of course Covid and the potential vaccine mandate were hot topics. We also discussed the Grand Jury reports around housing and homelessness. If you’d like to read those you can see them here: https://www.mendocinocounty.org/government/grand-jury/2019-2020-reports
I had a call with a gentleman that’s trying to do a project on the South end of Ukiah and worried about the Airport Land Use Commission. It’s nice to be able to be a sounding board to folks that want to make improvements to our community. 
I attended the Ukiah Library needs assessment meeting. The Friends of the Ukiah Library paid for a needs assessment to come up with a plan for the Ukiah branch library. The building is owned by the City of Ukiah and they lease it for a $1. There are many variables but most important is that this gets included in the larger County facilities assessment to determine if there are better alternatives. 
At the City of Ukiah City Council meeting they awarded this years slurry seal bid, updated the ambulance fees, and agreed to purchase an ice rink for the seasonal event Downtown instead of renting a rink. 

Thursday
Every Thursday morning I host an only Zoom meeting I call “Coffee and Conversation” this is an opportunity to come and talk to me about whatever is on your mind. Just open Zoom and use Meeting ID 7079548230 and Password LOCAL707
I completed my first Leadership course through CSAC. I will be attending one meeting per month to receive my certification. 
I had a meeting with a local restaurant about the vaccine mandate. Although the Board does not put the Public Health Orders in to place its important to hear how the community feels. 
Meeting with County Counsel and Supervisor Haschak about Grand Jury - Reports and Responses for housing and homelessness. See the link above. 

Friday
Started Friday morning with a meeting with MCSO about Alert and Warning. This fire season got off to a rocky start without consistent alert and warning for various fires. It’s important that everyone go to MendocinoSheriff.Com and scroll down to alert and warning and update their Everbridge and Nixle accounts. This will help you get accurate notifications in future fires. 
I had a meeting at Mendocino College about their need for an emergency evacuation route. I’m glad that local agencies, neighborhoods and businesses are taking preparedness seriously. More to come. 
I sat down with Jacque Williams at the Ford Street Project. It’s very important that our local residents have access to Substance Abuse Treatment. We will probably never have quick enough access for some folks but we can do much better as a County. If you’ve ever known an addict that has had to wait weeks to get in to treatment you know the odds of losing them back to the streets or in to their addiction. 

Saturday
My favorite realtor and her lovely assistant took me to look at a house. If there ever was an elected that knows the struggle of housing in our area I’m your girl. We need to stop the NIMBYism and work together with developers to add more opportunities for housing. 

Sunday
My daughter wasn’t feeling well so we stayed home. I got up on emails. So far we’ve gotten over 100 emails about the proposed vaccine mandate and over 100 emails about repealing the CCAO 

Monday
On Monday I attended the Inland Mendocino Democratic Club Virtual meeting. We heard from Congressman Huffman, Senator McGuire and Assemblymember Wood. When it was my turn to give an update I realized that in 9 months we have come a long way. It’s hard to remember that when you’re caught in the weeds and the weeks seem to go by so fast. I’ll try to write up a recap for you all or do a video. 


Tuesday
RRWA/RWQCB - daily acts, prescription take back needs to go all over the County will need to rely on more local initiatives, drought messaging and coordination needs to happen for all of the projects. 

I totally missed Tuesday publishing. Well now you know what I’ve been up to over the last week. Don’t forget I’m happy to schedule a call or a Zoom meeting. 707-391-3664. [email protected]

You know the drill! Every Tuesday night I put out my weekly recap of what I've been working on. Hope you had a great week!

 

Wednesday

On Wednesday I had an internal Grand Jury Homeless meeting with Haschak and County Team to prepare a response. Have you read the Grand Jury report on homelessness. What were your thoughts? https://www.mendocinocounty.org/home/showpublisheddocument/45045/637647272874430000

 

Wednesday was also a Behavioral Health Advisory Board meeting. I want to draw your attention to this important item.

From the team:

Mental Health Services Act 2020 - 2023 Three-Year Plan Annual Update for Fiscal Year 2021-2022

30–Day Public Comment Period& Public Hearing Announcement

Mendocino County Behavioral Health and Recovery Services is excited to announce that the Mental Health Services Act 2020 - 2023 Three-Year Plan will be available for a 30-day public comment period from Thursday, August 26 to September 27, 2021.

 

The document can be viewed on the Mental Health Services Act Website at https://www.mendocinocounty.org/government/health-and-human-services-agency/mental-health-services/mental-health-services-act or by appointment at a Mendocino County Behavioral Health and Recovery Services office: 1120 S. Dora St. Ukiah and 790-B South Franklin Street, Fort Bragg. There will also be a public hearing during the Behavioral Health Advisory Board meeting on September 22, 2021, which will take place online via Zoom at: https://mendocinocounty.zoom.us/j/98557737710 from 10 am – 12 pm.

 

The 30-day public comment period and the public hearing are opportunities for you to ask questions and provide comments on the MHSA 20 - 23 Three-Year Plan and the programs therein. Comments and questions are collected via email, mail, phone, and verbally during the public hearing. These comments and questions are added to the final draft of the MHSA 20 – 23 Three-Year Plan and responded to formally in the document.

 

To request a copy of the plan or to submitquestions and comments, contact Rena Ford, the MHSA Program Coordinator, at [email protected], or 707-472-2724, or by sending them to 1120 South Dora Street, Ukiah, CA 95482 Attn: Mental Health Services Act.

 

Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to seeing you there!

 

 

 

I met with Redwood Taxi. The owners are Andrew and Mike and they wanted to sit down and talk about how they could help meet the additional needs of the community.

 

I had an MTA Board of Directors meeting. Thankfully they have finally been able to hire some people. They are training and they hope to be able to add busses to better be able to support schools in the very near future. Also Jacob, the Executive Director said that he is working with the City of Ukiah about a possible transit center so I look forward to hearing more about that.

 

Ted and I had a MCAFD and BOS Meeting regarding funds to fire departments. They were given direction to bring back a plan for the wildland fire fighting needs.

 

 

Thursday

Of course on Thursday morning I had a Coffee and Conversation meeting. If you would like to join please log in to Zoom with Meeting ID 7079548230 and Password LOCAL707

 

I had the opportunity to meet with Judy Morris the new Deputy CEO. We discussed her former career as a Supervisor and some of the needs of Mendo including disaster preparedness, cannabis and lack of housing.

 

Ted and I had a BOS Ad Hoc meeting with County and RQMC staff regarding Mental Health Data. We have one more meeting planned and then I hope we will be able to bring the item back to the public through a community meeting and then to take it to the full Board.

 

I had a conversation with some constituents about the challenges with planning and building. I am going to work with Ted as they are in the 5th District to try and help resolve their issues.

 

I had a meeting with a few of the folks that led the referendum signature gathering to repeal the Commercial Cannabis Ordinance. We discussed why they didn't like the ordinance and I told them why I had been in favor of many of the changes. I continue to believe that the Board got to some compromises with the ordinance but unfortunately they do not see it that way.

 

I had the privilege to volunteer for the Leadership Mendocino Orientation. I was technically in the last class which was before/during Covid. I had always thought I didn't need to take Leadership Mendocino because I grew up in Mendo and had traveled all over. In case you haven't had the opportunity yet this is really a beneficial program for anyone that is interested in developing their leadership skills and learning more about the entire county its economy, its people, its history.

 

 

Friday

On Friday I was running around doing prep for the Ukiah Streetscape Celebration. My granddaughter Teagan (7 months pictured above) helped me deliver historical story boards to the businesses in the Downtown.

 

Saturday

On Saturday I started the morning by installing 130 balloons throughout the downtown in honor of the Streetscape celebration. The rest of the day was filled with looking at classic cars, checking out sidewalk sales, the City of Ukiah brought down heavy equipment, and in addition to the historic story boards there were signs about the completion of the project. The day climaxed with the ribbon cutting at noon where the Director of Public Works declared that even though the planter boxes were very nice they were not for RV parking (a joke about an rv that had been high centered on a planter the week before.) The project is not quite complete, the traffic signals still need to be installed so that traffic can flow at maximum efficiency. it was a pain while the construction was ongoing but it turned out beautifully.

 

Sunday

On Sunday I spent the afternoon meeting with some folks from the first district regarding PG&E funds and cannabis. Often when people are passionate they send emails or letters that can be misinterpreted so I felt it was best to sit face to face to have these important conversations.

 

Monday

I met with Supervisor Haschak and County Staff regarding the Grand Jury report on Housing and what our response would be. What are your thoughts on housing in Mendocino County. https://www.mendocinocounty.org/home/showpublisheddocument/44459/637622856639330000

 

I attended my first First 5 Mendocino as an alternate. They provide a lot of services for families with young children. I will share more as it comes up but for now please take a look at their website. http://www.mendochildren.org/#

My statement regarding the vaccine mandate for indoor dining.

"I realize that Dr Coren is the Public Health advisor I just want to be clear that businesses should not be the public health police. If you are choosing to move forward with this order it should be made very clear to the businesses what their expectations are for verification and which businesses are affected. Our small businesses are specifically targeted because they are honest and trying to support public health and the economy. This doesn't take in to consideration the people that refuse to cooperate with the contact tracing. Instead of placing this restriction on businesses public health should be encouraging testing and masking while indoors at restaurants and bars. I realize that large cities have been able to implement this policy but placing Mendocino County businesses in this position while surrounding counties have not adopted this policy puts our local residents and their businesses at risk of not being able to survive this roller coaster. I'm not in favor of deviating from the CDPH and CDC guidelines, it creates confusion amongst the public. "

Our county has had no vaccine deaths.

September to October is the high season for TOT on the coast.

Policy Recommendations: Consider subsidy for long haul water cost to the coast. Consider TOT allocation to fund program. Monitor use pattern and adjust policy going forward.

Gjerde - recommends we have anyone that receives subsidy commit to expanding storage capacity for future uses

Williams - define where the TOT funds have been received and where they go (over the last decade) and bring back report within 30 days

Rau - only have one qualified hauler that has responded

Haschak - will go to the Willits City Council to see if they can possibly provide water as it will be closer than Ukiah. Stated that Laytonville has offered water as well which is surprising considering that they had a call to action regarding repealing the cannabis ordinance due to lack of water.

- Back to the ad hoc: limit water to daylight hours, create a log for water hauling and selling.

Posted on August 25, 2021 at 12:25 AM Comments comments (419)
Hey! It’s The Mo You Know, and its Tuesday! Here is my weekly update. This is not a comprehensive list of all of the meetings that I attend but a summary so that you can contact me if you are interested in a particular subject. I have a regular zoom meeting every Thursday from 7:15-7:45a that you are welcome to join: Meeting ID 7079548230 Password LOCAL707  My email is [email protected] and my cell phone is 707-391-3664

Wednesday
On Wednesday morning I went to a Fire Safe Council Demonstration on Lake Ridge Road. They are working with the Hopland Band of Pomo Indians to offer a program to create defensible space for Seniors and Disabled Individuals. They have the videos they are creating on their website.  https://firesafemendocino.org/defensible-space-assistance-program/
I also attended my first Department Head Meeting. We talked about ways to make the Agenda more user friendly. Unfortunately the way that the Granicus system on the website that Agenda Summary does not show easily on the agenda. A lot of the pertinent information for an agenda item is in the Agenda Summary such as the history of the item and the budget implications. The Clerk of the Board Staff is working with Granicus to get a new tab labeled “Agenda packet” that will put the whole agenda in sequential order and make it much easier to read all of the documents while still having tabs that folks interested in a specific item could review. 
We are also looking at ways to increase recruitment and retention of County employees.  I’m working on a slideshow that can be played on the TVs in the hallway at 501 as well as during breaks of the Supe meetings. 
I also had a meeting about possible mental health outcome data. A lot of community members want to learn more about the progress of mental health services in our community. You can see some things on the County website for Measure B but there is more to do. 
The Russian River Confluence Working Group had a meeting about procedures and contract obligations and expectations. More to come on this one. And if anyone in Mendocino County is interested in participating please call me! 
I also had a meeting with some folks about the Cannabis Sunset Zones. We all know that the cannabis ordinance isn’t working out as planned. There are a lot of question marks about what happens next. 

Thursday
Of course we had a regular Coffee and Conversation meeting. We talked about employee recruitment and retention. How do you think the County can improve attraction to potential employees? 
Mendocino Business and Government Leaders Meeting - PSPS for this week should be over, 6 fires are burning across McGuire's District, we are in a drought. Rancho hospitals at capacity and the system is getting stressed. 35 people in our hospital, 3 out of County. County trying to increase capacity by finding alternate ways to help mentally ill patients. If businesses need to get tests they can go to testing.covid19.ca.gov and select Antigen + PCR Binax Now. CDPH just issued new event guidelines. 
The budget is a concern for the MSWA. Mendo Recycle is a valuable program to our communities but the constantly changing regulations and Covid issues have caused some budget concerns. The ad hoc is trying to work on solutions. 
I listened in to the Equity Grant Workshop for Cannabis. Please if you know anyone in the industry that is unable to afford the permitting process please tell them to reach out to https://elevateimpactmendo.com/ to see if they can help. 

Friday
I attended the DFC Coalition Meeting. The Youth are working on their next mural and a plan to bring the banning of whippits to the City Council. Did you see the article? https://www.ukiahdailyjournal.com/2021/08/22/efforts-to-ban-whippets/
I listened in on the State Water Board Curtailment Workshop And had a meeting with the Chief of the Ukiah Vally Fire Authority about EMS and the recent study that the City of Ukiah purchased. Unfortunately its not yet complete but might still provide valuable information for a potential JPA 


Saturday
On Saturday I attended the Women's Right to Vote Celebration at the Kelley House. I delivered four proclamations on behalf of the Board of Supervisors. One for Women’s History Month and the 101 Anniversary of the Women’s Right to Vote. One for Juneteenth and for African American/Black History Month. It was a beautiful day and a safe outdoor event. I’m very grateful I could attend. 


Sunday
On Sunday afternoon I had a meeting about Mental Health issues within a family. I heard from a parent about the challenges of dealing with an adult child in the mental health system. I hope to be able to share more of her ideas with you soon, when she is ready. 
I also attended a community opening of the Solar Living Institute. I reminisced about the controversy of the trees growing through the cars. I remember being in junior high or high school. I just don’t remember why people were so upset about it. 


Monday
And on Monday in addition to various other tasks I listened in to the State Redistricting Input meeting for the North Coast.


Tuesday

Weekly Update #33 August 17, 2021

Posted on August 18, 2021 at 8:45 AM Comments comments (258)
Wednesday
On Wednesday I went to my first in person CSAC Conference. This was the end of the "New Supervisors Institute. I guess I'm not allowed to say I'm new anymore! I'm looking forward to being engaged and active in the CSAC programs and networking with other elected officials across the State. We know that these relationships are critical for rural communities to make sure that we get the most out of our limited funds. 

Thursday
I sat on a CSAC Panel on leading during a pandemic with Supervisor Williams, CEO Angelo, Assistant CEO Angle and Social Services Director Emery. One of the most important things that I have learned from the pandemic is that we all have to lead together and provide as much information to our residents as possible. Its very interesting when you go back and look at your work in retrospect. I'm grateful to Supervisor Williams for allowing me to work with him on the Covid response. We are not done. Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) | Mendocino County, CA

Friday
I listened virtually to the CSAC meeting on Homelessness. There will be more Project Homekey money in the future and I asked the question on social media if there are people that have opinions about what kind of homeless housing would be a great opportunity for Mendocino County? What kind of population would you want to target first? Would there be codes of conduct or expectations? What locations would be appropriate whether that be a vacant lot or an existing building? 

Saturday
Ok check it off my "To-Do" list. I have now officially visited Bowling Ball Beach! It really is beautiful and such a "Mendo Thing to Do" 

Sunday
Of course on Sunday I was working on my Agenda prep but before that I took a run at Lake Mendocino and it was way too hot and smoky. Make sure you take care of yourself and stay inside if you can while the weather is rough. I'll take my own advice next time.  
Sunday night was the last night of Sunday's in the Park. It was a little different with wearing masks and not having a dance floor, instead people were instructed to dance with their social bubbles. I'm grateful that Mendocino County Public Health was on site to provide testing and vaccines for anyone that wanted them. I believe they did at least 15 vaccines. The easier we can make it for people to get vaccinated and tested the better! 

Monday
On Monday I had my Strategic Plan Meeting with the consultants. I was surprised at how much the subject of the culture of the agency came up. I really think its impartitive that the Board of Supervisors step up in to a leadership role and make sure that the team understands that we certainly are providing policy direction but we are also working along side them.  
I just happened to listen in to the MCOG Meeting. Most County related meetings can be found on YouTube at Mendocino County Video. If you love meetings like me you might enjoy it! 
I attended the VOAD Meeting. The main topics were assessing the need for  getting drinking water to residents that need it, how to get help to the victims of the Oak Fire and being prepared for PSPS

Tuesday
Please note that correspondence received after 9am may not be included, and these are my notes from the meeting. Please check the County website for the official record.

Covid: See summary, Hospital nearing capacity for ability to handle Covid patients. Mendocino County has a total of 18% available ICU beds across the whole County. Judson Howe from Adventist Health spoke about the peak capacity of Covid in our hospital system. Our hospital staff is fatigued. 85% of admissions are unvaccinated. Surgical cases have been restricted. Mr Howe encourages our community to please reconsider your thoughts on the vaccine to ease the strain on the hospital and the danger of having to delay surgeries for other individuals. Dr Coren says that there are more symptomatic children with Covid than in previous spikes. Vaccines are improving with 4,000 given in the last two weeks. Beyond the PH sites you can get the vaccine from your doctor or private pharmacies. Multiple agencies require vaccination status or submit to weekly testing. AH has about 95% vaccinated rate amongst doctors, and about 70-75% before mandate and that end date is the end of September. Vaccines offered at doctor appointments as well as in the Emergency Room if people are leaving.

Wednesday
On Wednesday I went to my first in person CSAC Conference. This was the end of the "New Supervisors Institute. I guess I'm not allowed to say I'm new anymore! I'm looking forward to being engaged and active in the CSAC programs and networking with other elected officials across the State. We know that these relationships are critical for rural communities to make sure that we get the most out of our limited funds. 

Thursday
I sat on a CSAC Panel on leading during a pandemic with Supervisor Williams, CEO Angelo, Assistant CEO Angle and Social Services Director Emery. One of the most important things that I have learned from the pandemic is that we all have to lead together and provide as much information to our residents as possible. Its very interesting when you go back and look at your work in retrospect. I'm grateful to Supervisor Williams for allowing me to work with him on the Covid response. We are not done. Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) | Mendocino County, CA

Friday
I listened virtually to the CSAC meeting on Homelessness. There will be more Project Homekey money in the future and I asked the question on social media if there are people that have opinions about what kind of homeless housing would be a great opportunity for Mendocino County? What kind of population would you want to target first? Would there be codes of conduct or expectations? What locations would be appropriate whether that be a vacant lot or an existing building? 

Saturday
Ok check it off my "To-Do" list. I have now officially visited Bowling Ball Beach! It really is beautiful and such a "Mendo Thing to Do" 

Sunday
Of course on Sunday I was working on my Agenda prep but before that I took a run at Lake Mendocino and it was way too hot and smoky. Make sure you take care of yourself and stay inside if you can while the weather is rough. I'll take my own advice next time.  
Sunday night was the last night of Sunday's in the Park. It was a little different with wearing masks and not having a dance floor, instead people were instructed to dance with their social bubbles. I'm grateful that Mendocino County Public Health was on site to provide testing and vaccines for anyone that wanted them. I believe they did at least 15 vaccines. The easier we can make it for people to get vaccinated and tested the better! 

Monday
On Monday I had my Strategic Plan Meeting with the consultants. I was surprised at how much the subject of the culture of the agency came up. I really think its impartitive that the Board of Supervisors step up in to a leadership role and make sure that the team understands that we certainly are providing policy direction but we are also working along side them.  
I just happened to listen in to the MCOG Meeting. Most County related meetings can be found on YouTube at Mendocino County Video. If you love meetings like me you might enjoy it! 
I attended the VOAD Meeting. The main topics were assessing the need for  getting drinking water to residents that need it, how to get help to the victims of the Oak Fire and being prepared for PSPS

Covid: See summary, Hospital nearing capacity for ability to handle Covid patients. Mendocino County has a total of 18% available ICU beds across the whole County. Judson Howe from Adventist Health spoke about the peak capacity of Covid in our hospital system. Our hospital staff is fatigued. 85% of admissions are unvaccinated. Surgical cases have been restricted. Mr Howe encourages our community to please reconsider your thoughts on the vaccine to ease the strain on the hospital and the danger of having to delay surgeries for other individuals. Dr Coren says that there are more symptomatic children with Covid than in previous spikes. Vaccines are improving with 4,000 given in the last two weeks. Beyond the PH sites you can get the vaccine from your doctor or private pharmacies. Multiple agencies require vaccination status or submit to weekly testing. AH has about 95% vaccinated rate amongst doctors, and about 70-75% before mandate and that end date is the end of September. Vaccines offered at doctor appointments as well as in the Emergency Room if people are leaving.

Weekly Update #32 - 8/10/21

Posted on August 10, 2021 at 7:05 PM Comments comments (281)
Hey! I’m Mo Mulheren the Second District Supervisor for Mendocino County. Every Tuesday I put out a little weekly update about which meetings I have been attending. This helps you know what topics I’m following and if you have feedback I encourage you to reach out. 
Have a great day!
Mo

Wednesday
On the First Wednesday of the month I have a meeting with the City of Ukiah as the Second District Supervisor. This is a good opportunity for me to connect with the City about projects that they are working on and that I am aware of at the County. We discussed the concerns around multiple non-profits doing outreach for the homeless community instead of just having one agency focused on that work. Just as we have many varieties of taco shops, tattoo parlors and bars different service providers have different clientele targets. The challenge is when they merge in to each others work and clearly outlining these roles is partially the job of the COC but in my mind a big part is also making sure that the County is effectively managing programs so that they are successful. We also discussed issues coming before LAFCO, including the possibility of a tax sharing agreement between the County of Mendo and the four incorporated cities. 

Thursday
Every Thursday morning I host a meeting called Coffee and Conversation. This week there were only a couple of people that joined me but we talked about the cannabis program and mental health.  
I popped in (virtually) to the Sonoma Clean Power meeting on Thursday to learn what programs they are offering. Check out the Bike Electric program. Bike Electric | Sonoma Clean Power
I listened in to the Childhood Trauma Action Team. Generational Trauma is a very serious issue in Mendocino County. The more that we can grab young children up out of poverty, educate them and set them up for success the more we as a community can be successful. This is a good opportunity for children's service providers to meet and network and share opportunities for our kids.  
Around lunch I took a  Project HomeKey Facility Tour with CSAC Executive Director Graham Knaus. Graham was able to hear how the funding from the State was used locally. The successes and the challenges. One thing that I keep thinking about is the rules of conduct. Some people think they are too strict but as one staffer pointed out these are really just normal societal rules that people living in apartments follow and so far most people have been very successful. Project Homekey Code of Conduct (projecthomekeymendocino.org)
I was on a zoom meeting about Electricity Resiliency with some members of the Sierra Club and the City of Ukiah. It seems as though the City of Gonzalez has been able to set up a strong AND SAFE electrical system so I look forward to hearing more about how we can connect the dots for the City of Ukiah Electric program and the unincorporated area where PG&E operates. 
The BOS Ad Hoc BHRS Data had our first meeting. We have heard the communities call for action to see more data around outcomes. When you are speaking about people with mental illness success looks like a variety of things so we need to figure out how to gather the data if it already exists or start collecting it if it doesn't. We also need to find a way to make it easily accessible to the general public. 
I had my meeting regarding Cottage Cannabis Cultivation. It was on Zoom and about 20 people came. The BOS needs to consider what to do about ordinances 22.18 and 10A.17. We may need to repeal the 22.18 ordinance or put it on the ballot. 10A.17 has a Phase 3 that will need to be opened, its currently on an emergency hold. Neither of these ordinances supports an opportunity for people that are legacy cultivators and did not chose to get in to Phase 1 a legal path forward. I asked the group if they would support a survey that would help determine exactly how many people, in which land zones want to cultivate which type of cannabis in what quantity. Some of the guests didn't feel that a survey coming from the "government" (meaning me) would be successful so the Mendocino Cannabis Alliance has offered to send that out. I don't know if people will respond but I think its very helpful to understand if we are talking about 5 people cultivating in TPZ that want to get in to the legal market or if there are 500. Those are different conversations so I would like to see what that survey comes up with. The other challenge is that a lot of the rules that have come from the State inhibit small cultivators from moving forward so that is another variable that we will have to consider before bringing the item back to the Board. 

Friday 
Friday morning I had a meeting with Sheriff Kendall, Chief of Probation Izen Locatelli and the Project Manager for the Restorative Justice Program in the jail. We talked about the agenda item coming forward and the intention of the program. 
The Public Safety Ad Hoc/MCAFD Steering Committee meeting in Anderson Valley was on Friday. This is an opportunity for Supervisor Williams and I to meet with the Chiefs and Directors from the Fire Departments to collaborate on coming up with a stronger Public Safety portfolio in Mendocino County. 


Saturday

I took a tour of the Career Point of the North Bay. Although the services are all virtual for now its important to know how job seekers and employers can be connected. I’ll share more updates on my @Mo4Mendo Facebook page so make sure you follow it.

Weekly Update #31 - 8/3/21

Wednesday

BHAB - The BHAB Board had an update from RCS about the Crisis Response. Reviewed the May RQMC Dashboard and an update on the Annual Plan for Mental Health Services. I’m working with Supervisor Williams to update the dashboards to show more/different metrics. What are your thoughts? You can find the data dashboards on my Facebook page

The MTA continues to come up with new strategies to hire drivers to get back to a full schedule. If you know someone that loves to drive please let them now to apply: Mendocino Transit Authority (MTA) | Public transportation for Mendocino County, California : MTA Careers

The Ukiah Senior Center had to temporarily suspend some activities due to Covid cases but everyone has been tested and is back to the fun!

 

 

Thursday

On Thursday morning Assemblyman Jim Wood joined my Coffee and Conversation meeting we discussed the idea of trying to move home hardening and prevention so that it’s year round. CalFire has been spending so much time on fire disasters its necessary to have a full time agency that is working on prevention. There is a Bill to do the middle mile of Broadband and service providers can do the final mile to the houses. He discussed that during the drought commercial fishing is challenging with Salmon not being able to make it down to the ocean and with the planned drought curtailments there may be lawsuits so there are no easy answers to the drought.

I met with Captain Greg VanPatten about the vehicle allocations and replacement program for the Sheriff’s Office. It would be great to have either a vehicle number or dollar amount that we are identifying in the budget for annual replacements. The Captain is going to work with Janelle Rau from General Services.

In the afternoon I met with Bekkie Emery the new director of Social Services. Although the official title is new Bekkie has been with the department her whole working career. I’m very interested in the programs that they workin on including children and adult services and helping people get back on their feet with cash aid or food stamps. These programs are constantly changing from the State and we have to make sure the County and are partners are all up to speed. You will see posts on my page about services that the County can help with including the CalFresh program which you can use at the Mendocino County Farmers Markets. https://mcfarm.org/ebtfood-stamps

I also met with Jim Donnley the Ag Commissioner to discuss the programs and roles and responsibilities of the Ag office.

 

 

Friday

I had a meeting in the morning with Elise from Sonoma County Supervisor Lynda Hopkins office about the Russian River Confluence: just starting, need data, used to promote the recreational use of the river. This program slowed in 2017 and is just now picking up. Here is the website for reference. Let me know if you are interested in participating. http://russianriverconfluence.org/

 

Saturday

Agenda prep!

 

Sunday

Agenda Prep and Sunday’s in the Park. Only one more concert left August 15th 6p at Todd Grove Park

 

Monday

I met with Ukiah Veccinios en Acción. I usually go to their monthly meeting but this was a more focused meeting on how they can help the County. They are a volunteer organization so all of the money goes directly in to the community. They've identified need and potential projects in the community. They have received a grant from the Community Foundation of Mendocino County to build a website that will be able to support our Spanish speaking community to access business information, jobs postings, etc. They started originally in Ukiah and have now done more outreach and have members all over the County. I look forward to working with them on future projects!

I also had several meetings about the cannabis industry and what happens next. The portal is officially open and I hope people use it to submit their applications so we can get some more folks through the licensed system.

In the afternoon I attended a meeting of the VOAD (Volunteer Organizations Active in Disasters) and the OES Coordinator about distributing drinking water County wide should there be an available supply. I’m glad they are being proactive and creating a strategy.

The Board would like the Sheriff to chose one of the four but if not the recommendation is for Mannin & Kass, Ellrod, Ramierz, Trester, LLP

There were four items that the Sheriff believes are in conflict. 1. Is there a conflict in the budget or staffing of IT - the Board does not believe a conflict exists. 2. Regarding the consolidation of the Sheriff IT with the County IT per the Grand Jury Report the Board is in agreement that any decision will be delayed until there can be an Attorney General Decision and that the Sheriff should have independent Counsel to submit his request. 3. May the Sheriff spend at will without having to come to the Board? This does not include emergency expenses. The Board sees that the Sheriff and the County Budget team have worked together to come up with an almost balance budget just off $255,000. We agree that if he believes he can spend at will outside of emergency and the budget that he should have a legal opinion that also states that.

Weekly Update #30 - July 27, 2021

Posted on July 27, 2021 at 11:50 PM Comments comments (103)
Good evening, my name is Mo Mulheren. I am the Second District Supervisor. Every Tuesday night I do an update of what I worked on the previous week. This is a very brief summary to let you know what I’ve been up to and if something peeks your interest please ask questions or attend my Thursday morning zoom. 


On Wednesday I filled in for a member of the MCOG Transportation committee on behalf of MTA. We approved a plan to bring to MCOG and MTA to establish rates of reimbursement for Senior Centers "Door through Door Service". 


Thursday mornings Coffee and Conversation was very lightly attended. (AKA just me and Mark) This week though I will have a special guest. Assembly Member Jim Wood. We will be discussing what the projects he is currently working on; Broadband, Fire prevention/Home hardening and Capitol Happenings including the fishing bill and his committee assignments. See you virtually at 7:15am Meeting ID 7079548230 Password LOCAL707
This year I am chair of the Russian River Watershed Association. On Thursday we received an update about all of the projects that the organization is working on. I would love it if you can help spread the word about the awesome videos that the youth in Mendocino and Sonoma County created last year as well as share the info about this years project which will be drought related. http://www.rrwatershed.org/project/student-videos/
RRWA is also working with Sonoma State students on making homeless encampments along the river and identifying policy and political barriers that have prevented making toilets accessible at those locations. 
We had another Tax Sharing meeting and will be setting up a meeting with the four cities (Ukiah, Point Arena, Willits, Fort Bragg) to discuss how we can move forward. 
Each year I participate in the Russian River Clean Up. We had a planning meeting on Thursday - its September 18th so save the date 
Ok so technically a Clothing Swap isn’t Supervisor related but did you know that 84% of clothing ends up in a landfill. Swap don’t shop! 

On Friday I listened in on the Latin X Men's Mental Health informational Zoom lunch. There was a panel that discussed the challenges that black and brown men face when trying to discuss and identify mental health concerns. There was a lot of vulnerability in the stories and I’m grateful that they were so open. We all need to learn to be more empathetic to one another. 


On Saturday I was invited for a night out at the Flynn Creek Circus. This was my first time seeing the show. What incredible talent! 


Bright and early Sunday I hit 101 for a Highway Clean Up. I was joined by Ken Johnson and Pete Gallegos. I’m grateful that they showed up to help. Many hands make light work! 
On Sunday afternoon my youngest daughter and I took the paddle board and kayak out to Lake Mendo. And sure enough the water is still wet. Just takes a little longer to get there. 
Of course I volunteered at the Sundays in the Park for the Ukiah Main Street Program. Public Health is offering vaccines and testing at the concerts so hopefully that will make it easy for people to get the vaccine if they haven’t done so already. We are only a little over 50% vaccinated in Mendocino County and cases are surging so if you have ideas for those that are hesitant please let me know. 

On Monday morning I was invited to a Zoom meeting 
of the Sierra Club Utility Task Force. I learned a lot about the work that PG&E is doing with vegetation management vs what they could be doing by replacing lines. Of course the folks are rightly concerned about the number of trees that are being taken down vs hardening the lines. I will be following up by reading the studies they sent me. 
In the afternoon I went to the Stepping up Committee Meeting. The asset mapping is almost complete and the partners are doing a good job of communicating. They’ve identified a few people that may be absent from the table and will be reaching out. It’s really important to have everyone hearing and making the same decisions if collaborations are going to be successful. I hope to share the map soon on my Facebook page so make sure you follow @Mo4Mendo 

This morning I had a conversation about 
Public Health concerns about accessibility to Covid Information. Please share with friends and family that testing locations and vaccine events are always on the County website located here: https://www.mendocinocounty.org/community/novel-coronavirus
I also had a great conversation with the Army Recruiting folks. I think it’s important that our young people are connected to local government if we hope to have them come back after their service. I’m working on a reunion for the Hometown Heroes on 9/11 please look for more information 
I’ve been invited to be on a CSAC Panel about leadership during a disaster. That’s coming up next month I’ll let you know how it goes! 

I hope you are well and as always if you have questions please reach out to me. I’m always ready to take your questions 707-391-3664z have a good night!

Hi! I’m Mo. I am the Second District Supervisor for Mendocino County. On Tuesday evenings I present a summary of some of the meetings I’ve attended during the week. This is not an inclusive list, it’s just meant to give you an idea of projects that I’m working on in case you’d like to ask questions but aren’t sure which committees I’m assigned to. I hope you enjoy. If you’d like this emailed to you directly please send me your email address with newsletter in the subject. [email protected] or Text your email to 707-391-3664

Wednesday
Once a month I meet with Ukiah City Councilmember and City Manager Sangiacomo. This is the best way to keep updates on things happening in my district and discuss hot topics from the County. We discussed if there was potential for another Project Homekey location in the City if funding becomes available. For now the City and County are waiting to see what funding is available and what the requirements are. We also discussed the UVSD and City communications and the recycled water project. 
I was running a little late but made it to the Ukiah Main Street Program Meeting. In case you didn’t know I’ve been on the UMSP way before I was an elected official and having had a downtown location for 10 years at various businesses it’s important to me that we keep up the continuity and promotion of the Downtown. We discussed the upcoming Streetscape celebration (August 28th, save the date), pumpkin fest (10/15-10/17), the First Friday Art Walk and some new businesses
coming to the Downtown. Hello and Welcome to the Thirsty Axe!! 

Thursday
Mendocino Business and Government Leaders was started at the beginning of the pandemic as a way to connect the Cities with the County. We now meet monthly to discuss Covid rates, testing and economic recovery. We still have many cases in Mendocino County. If you haven’t been vaccinated please consider getting vaccinated. If you aren’t vaccinated please consider testing if you attend a social function or event. 
I had a couple of cannabis meetings. 
Coffee regarding Cannabis - concerned community member/pro-referendum. We had about an hour long conversation and most of it surrounded the lack of trust in the County capacity to run a successful cannabis program. The only thing that’s going to change that is experience and getting the job done. We need time for that. 
Coffee regarding Cannabis again - unsuccessful applicant. As the cannabis program sorts through the applications I’m sure we will see more of these folks that got a denial letter. The BOS has been consistent on the reasons for denial so hopefully it won’t happen too often.

Friday
On Friday morning I had a check in with CalFire regarding Alert and Warning and what systems they utilize.

Saturday
Saturday was the Kids Triathalon in Ukiah and I had a great time on the set up crew. It’s so important that we give kids a healthy outlet. Thank you to the City of Ukiah for putting it on, North Coast Striders for “running the run” and Walk and Bike Mendocino for the bike event. Adventist Health provided lunch and the merchants from the Pear Tree Center provided a goodie bag. 

Sunday
Sunday was a celebration for Carre Brown’s Retirement with MWPC. It was a really lovely afternoon. I got to talk about how as a council member Carre had encouraged me to come to the table with the Army Corp to have the deferred maintenance at Lake Mendo. At the end of her speech Carre gifted me a beautiful broach to use as my lucky election token. What an honor!
