Weekly Update #47 - November 23, 2021

Posted on November 25, 2021 at 2:40 PM Comments comments (379)
Hey there! I’m Mo Mulheren. I am the Second District Supervisor for the County of Mendocino. I never have the same day twice. My weekly update is an opportunity to share with you the variety of topics that I work on so that hopefully you can engage and ask questions or provide feedback. This isn’t an inclusive list of every moment of my day just a brief summary. Please feel free to reach out if you’d like to schedule a meeting or a phone call. 

On Wednesday I met with Dee my pick for the Redistricting Committee at Black Oak Coffee. We talked a lot about the challenges of the Second District and it’s population. Unfortunately because the population is so dense the area directly surrounding the City of Ukiah has to be shared with other districts. I think right now it works because I work well with Ted (Dist 5) and Glenn ( Dist 1) and we can communicate and work on issues that affect our areas. At some point there may be Supervisors that are more territorial. It would be good to add more flexibility to our legislative platform to allow for districts to have more population in cities, especially for rural counties. 
At the BHAB meeting - Dr Miller discussed how she is still trying to hire more staff. Most of the meeting was a presentation by youth mental health providers a lot of discussion about lack of staff to be able to support the youth. If you know someone that would be a great fit please visit the County website, RQMC, Mendocino Youth Project, Tapestry or other organizations. We need you! 
In the afternoon I attended the Library Advisory Board where we received a report of what the libraries have been up to. 

Every single Thursday I start my day with Coffee and Conversation. It’s great to have a set time that anyone can come and talk to me about whatever is on their mind. 
On the Third Thursday of the month we have a meeting with Mendocino Business and Government Leaders. We started this meeting very early on during the pandemic but it has been a great opportunity for local electeds, business organizations and municipal staff to work together to find funding resources and network solutions for the businesses in Mendocino county. 
Because my MBGL meeting ended a little early I jumped in on the Inland Housing Action Team Zoom for a little bit. It’s great to have this and the Coastal group working on housing opportunities in our community. 
At our meeting for MSWMA we heard from Interim General Manager Tom Varga about the organization, the budget and the funding opportunities. 
On Thursday we had Special Board Meeting to approve the Redistricting maps for 2020. I am glad we were able to have such a successful committee of citizen volunteers. They had an incredibly short timeline and they did a great job. 
Thursday evening I joined in on the Blue Zones walking audit of Ukiah. Their experts really like our Streetscape project and gave it a 9 out of 10, they said we would have had a 10 if the trees were grown in more. 

Friday morning I joined in to the Zoom for the Mendocino County Blue Zones Environmental Policy Summit.
Friday evening I had a meeting in Cloverdale with Sonoma County electeds re water. It’s great to connect with electeds from other areas to learn more about what they are working on, and how we can connect. 

I was out of town on Saturday but I had the opportunity to check out some trails in Fremont at Central Park. I also love all of the protected bike lanes that they had. It’s nice to get out of town and check out other infrastructure. 

I laugh when people ask me what my office hours are. I’m always working, if my phone is on my hand and I’m not asleep…. I’m checking emails, responding to message and reading whatever comes across that pertains to County government. I think I might do an album on my Facebook called “Office Hours” where I just snap pictures of everywhere I am working. 

Monday morning we had a LAFCO - Work Plan Ad Hoc, keeping it informal to receive updates and provide feedback. So far LAFCO has completed the Ukiah Valley Fire District and Covelo updates for the year. Still working on CSA 3 and the Ukiah Valley Sanitation District and the City of Ukiah. There is an opportunity to create policy that will be able to move the community forward and we just need to find a way to meet the needs of the variety of municipalities throughout Mendocino County. I’m honored to be working on this committee. 

You are welcome to join my Zoom on Thursdays at 7:15a-7:45a the meeting ID is 7079548230 and the password is LOCAL707. I am not planning on login in on this Thursday as it is Thanksgiving but I’m happy to take calls anytime this week 707-391-3664 please let me know if you have questions.

Hello Mendo!!

 

I am Mo. The Second District Supervisor for Mendocino County.

Each week I use the internet to provide you an update of what I am working on, this is not an exhaustive list rather an opportunity for you to comment or ask questions about a particular topic that may interest you and catch a glimpse of how one of the five Supervisors works on a variety of topics during any given week. I post this to my website at MaureenMulheren.Com, on Facebook and I would be happy to email it to you directly to your inbox. Please just let me know by emailing me at [email protected] and put "Add to email" in the subject line.

Wednesday

On Wednesday we had a North Coast Railroad Authority Special Closed Session Board Meeting regarding the rail banking along the future Great Redwood Trail.

Thursday

Started my day with Coffee and Conversation, we discussed the Cannabis portal and the civility of engagement with elected officials and the public. Would you like to join in this conversation? You can join in 7:15a-7:45a on Zoom Meeting ID 7079548230 Password LOCAL707

On Thursday morning after Coffee and Conversation I went to the Mendocino Forestry Office to talk with John Anderson about the upcoming agenda item regarding Jackson State Demonstration Forest.

I met with the Acting Auditor-Controller to discuss the upcoming agenda item about the merger of the Treasurer Tax Collector and Auditor Controller office to a Department of Finance.

The EDFC Board of Directors Meeting was cancelled due to not establishing the appropriate public noticing.

Friday

Friday morning I went to a meeting with Assemblymember Wood regarding Live Oak. It was nice to hear from Megan VanSant about their successes and challenges and how a project could work in other areas around the State. http://projecthomekeymendocino.org/faq/

In the afternoon I had a meeting with Michelle Hutchins about Move 2030. She said that there was some opportunities to create something to what happened in Humboldt County several years ago so I will be doing some research on that.

Saturday

The Second Saturday is the Building Bridges Clean up. As I was cleaning up I was thinking of the hundreds of people that came to speak in favor of opening the shelter and how few have been willing to chip in and make it successful. I hope that more people would be willing to get engaged and volunteer, I don't know if COVID has made people feel uncomfortable about coming out to help or maybe they just don't know that this is happening. Please feel free to come to Building Bridges at 1045 S State Street at 9am on the Second Saturday and I will have have extra bags and litter pickers so that you can help keep the neighborhood and the shelter successful.

Sunday

On Sunday after my Family Zumba class I took a business trip to Point Arena/Gualala with my family. It was a beautiful day on the Coast. Not technically a Supervisor "thing" but just thought I'd like to remind you all that I don't just stay in little old Ukiah.

* A note. Over the weekend the Board received close to 1,000 emails regarding the agenda item for JDSF and I read each of them. I really appreciate everyone that took the time to write in their own words what the JDSF means to them whether they are involved in commercial activities, a recreator or just a lover of the planet. That feedback better informs these important conversations.

Weekly Update #45 - November 9, 2021

Posted on November 9, 2021 at 11:00 PM Comments comments (299)
Hello Mendo!!

I am Mo. The Second District Supervisor for Mendocino County. 
Each week I use the internet to provide you an update of what I am working on, this is not an exhaustive list rather an opportunity for you to comment or ask questions about a particular topic that may interest you and catch a glimpse of how one of the five Supervisors works on a variety of topics during any given week. I post this to my website at MaureenMulheren.Com, on Facebook and I would be happy to email it to you directly to your inbox. Plese just let me know by emailing me at [email protected] and put "Add to email" in the subject line.

Wednesday 
Once a month I meet with City Councilmember Jim brown and the City Manager for a City of Ukiah - Second District Meeting. Its important that the cities and the Supervisors meet regularly to discuss the issues that affect each other. I think each Supervisor should coordinate a monthly meeting with their governing bodies in their area or at least attend meetings regularly. 

Thursday
Every Thursday morning I start the day with Coffee and Conversation. You can join in on Zoom Meeting ID 7079548230Password LOCAL707
I am on the CSAC Leadership Institute learning path. This month the seminar was 
Customer Service in the Public Sector: Balancing Satisfaction with Priorities 
Coming from a background of being a small business owner I know just how key having strong customer service is. I hope to support our departments as they work to streamline their work to become more efficient and provide better customer service. 

Friday
On Friday I attended a Holiday Planning Meeting, this is not necessarily BOS related but I’m sharing it because I think its important for you to know that there are people working behind the scenes in our community to bring back some holiday joy this holiday season. But if you have time on December 4th to volunteer for the Ukiah Parade of Lights I could use your help closing streets! 
I was invited by Chair Gjerde to attend a meeting with the City of Ukiah and the County to discuss Electric efficiency. This was just an initial conversation to discuss what opportunities for collaboration there might be with the County and the City and our efforts to reduce greenhouse emissions. 

Saturday
For those of you that don’t know I wake up very early, 5am every day even on the weekends. That quiet time in the morning is usually when I spend time reviewing the agendas and responding to emails etc. Weekends always include working. This Saturday I also added Yoga
And a little Granddaughter time at the Farmers Market, had lunch at Taste Buds, bought some mittens at Little Brown Bear and then she had a little nap. I can’t believe she’s almost a year old! 

Sunday
I went hiking at Konocti County Park, they pay to maintain and update their trail system through cell tower rentals. It was pretty darn chilly but a very good work out. There are some portions of the trail that go through private property but everyone seemed to be very good at following all the rules! 

Monday
LAFCO Special Meeting - receive the protests for the Annexation and Tax Sharing for the Ukiah Valley Fire District Annexation over the City of Ukiah area, the number of protests did not qualify to be sent to the ballot and the LAFCO decision stands. This is a big win for our community as we have struggled to enhance and streamline fire service for decades.

Weekly Update #44 - November 2, 2021

Posted on November 4, 2021 at 11:45 PM Comments comments (296)
Hey there, apparently there was some confusion about the intention of this weekly report so I’d like to try and clear that up. (Although  I’m sure it will keep coming up so I will repeat it). This weekly report is not a list of what I do all day. This is a snap shot of the meetings that I attend so that you can weigh in if something intrigues you or better yet so you can ask questions about the projects that I am working on. Unfortunately the County doesn’t have a standard stream of communication and each Board member is doing so many things its hard to keep up. This is just my way of letting you know what I am working on and how I spend my time. I also STRONGLY encourage you to attend my Coffee and Conversation Zoom meetings Thursday mornings to ask questions or hear about what’s going on in the community.

Wednesday
On Wednesday I met at MSWMA with Tom Varga and CoU Council member Jim Brown to meet the staff. Tom is a former Fort Bragg Public Works Director and the Interim GM for the agency.
We had the monthly BHAB meeting however there wasn’t a quorum due to internet issues so it had to be postponed
I went to the City of Ukiah local road safety program meeting. There is a County wide study going on about road safety and I attend this one because I’m the Second District Supe and also a total streets geek!
Monthly meeting of the MTA. There were no new unmet needs listed. Can you tell me how well you think the bus service is working and if there should be additional stops?
Supervisor Williams and I had a Move 2030 discussion with the P&B staff to share our thoughts about the original proposed contract. Interestingly the Board did not vote to move forward with the 2030 project and instead asked for West Company to work on securing grants. So more to come on this.

Thursday
I started the day with Coffee and Conversation on Zoom. It was a casual conversation about the Cannabis Program, mental health and wellness.
On Thursday morning Glenn and I had a meeting with Farm Bureau Members about the Great Redwood Trail. They wanted to share their concerns about the trail. I am happy to have any feedback about the trail and willing to hear what possible solutions could mitigate concerns. For example should there be bathrooms, where should parking be, is patrol a priority. Let’s talk about it. Here is the official GRT website. http://www.thegreatredwoodtrail.org/in-the-news/ 
On Thursday at our Area on Aging meeting we updated the contracts with the Senior Centers. Senior Centers are more than just a location for older adults to go to. They provide nursing meals but more importantly create a sense of community and purpose.

Friday
I attended the MCAFD in Anderson Valley to receive the information from the fire departments about the settlement from PG&E and how to equally distribute funds across the departments and their needs for that funding source. This will come to the Board next month for approval. It’s great that the departments were able to meet and coordinate to come up with this plan, of course they (the fire departments) need far more funding but this is a step in the right direction.
I had a meeting about the Adventist Health Community Wellness programs. It’s important to create healthy communities if we want to reduce mental health and addiction issues. Medical care in 2021 looks like more than emergency rooms and building collaborations in a rural community is imperative as we are all stretching the dollars between each other.

Saturday
We continued our annual Witches and Wheels tradition on the Great Redwood Trail in Ukiah. This year we were joined by the stroller gang, A group of young moms that use the trail to take walks with their babies in addition to my “regulars” that just love dressing up with me. It felt great to get outdoors with community and celebrate being together. So happy to go back to some events!
After Witches and Wheels I ran down to the Great Redwood Trail opening of the Foss Creek section in Healdsburg. This is part of the big picture so we can get the trail from Marin to Humboldt a piece at a time! Congratulations Healdsburg!

Sunday
I hope that some of you were able to attend the Capitol Christmas Tree event on Halloween in the Pear Tree Center. It was great to see the kids dressed up for Halloween and Santa at the same time! Another once in a lifetime event for Mendocino County. 

Monday
On Monday we had our regular LAFCO Meeting
I attended a meeting with the County Team and the consultant as an update regarding the Parks Ad Hoc. We need to turn our focus to finding an opportunity to funding. 
In the evening on Monday I attended the Dia De Los Muertos Community Altar and Celebration

Tuesday
There was only item for this Election Day - Measure L - Here are the Election night results. The Elections Office has additional time to finalize the election so I will report that when I see it. https://www.mendocinocounty.org/home/showpublisheddocument/46066/637691072542700000

Wednesday
On Wednesday I went to a Blue Zones meeting in Willits. Dan Buettner the founder of Blue Zones was there to discuss what a Blue Zone is and encourage the community to take the Blue Zones Challenge. Have you don't your age test yet? 
https://mec.bluezonesproject.com/home

Thursday
Every Thursday morning I start my day the same with Coffee and Conversation. We had a few people joined and we talked about everything from mental health to cannabis. Please feel free to join any Thursday 7:15a-7:45a Zoom link Meeting ID 7079548230 Password LOCAL707
We had the monthly meeting of Mendocino Business and Government Leaders, which includes County officials and council members and staff from each of the four cities as well as the Chambers and other business alliances. We discussed the order that will require businesses to signal their covid vaccine requirements and any available upcoming funding sources.
The regularly scheduled meeting of the MSWA board occurred. We announced that we have hired interim General Manager Tom Varga.
I attended the Ukiah Valley Basin Groundwater Sustainability Agency as an alternate. 
I was invited to attend Dia De Los Muertos Planning with the City of Ukiah Mayor Juan Orozco and City Councilmember Josefina Duenas. I am happy to work with the City again to create a culturally appropriate event for our community to recognize the lives that have been lost over the last year. 

Friday
Tour of the Northern Aggregates facility on the Willits Grade

Saturday
I gave a presentation to the MWPC on how to use Social Media for a campaign. 

Sunday
I did attend the meeting called Patriots Town Hall at Todd Grove Park. I think it’s important to hear from everyone in the community and not just those that I agree with. 

Monday
I listened in on the Stepping Up Committee meeting between the jail, Behavioral Health and Probation as well as service providers seeking more alignment for mental health patients that may become incarcerated. 
I attended the First 5 Mendocino meeting. We need to place more importance on helping pregnant mothers and littles before age 5. Please take the time to check out their website. http://www.mendochildren.org/

Hey Mendo!!! It's Tuesday! Here is what I have been up to this week. Just a reminder that this is a brief summary of what I've been working on so that if you are interested in a topic you can reach out to me. Regarding the meeting notes those are just my rough notes and not an official public record.

Wednesday
I went to a Bicoastal Radio Meeting about using radio and social media for marketing, perhaps this is an option for County jobs.
More Mendo Recycle meetings with Councilmember Brown from the City of Ukiah to get things organized for the Interim Director
I attended the B2 Council meeting. B2 is also known as Building bridges the Emergency and Day Time Homeless Shelter at 1045 S State Street. They have been having monthly meetings since they opened and of course on Zoom. They are still trying to hire for more help so they can open the day shelter, the partners like MCAVHN and Manzanita are having the same problem. 
I listened in to the MHSA/QIC Joint Forum on Wednesday. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss Behavioral Health services and Mental Health Services Act programs in Mendocino County. Members of the public, consumers, family members, service providers, and community agencies are encouraged to attend the meeting to ask questions, share ideas, provide feedback, and give recommendations for improvement of the Behavioral Health system of care in the community. There weren't too many community comments and I hope that people will find other ways to give feedback about our Mental Health Services. Please know that you can reach out to me personally at 707-391-3664c or email at [email protected] or come to my Thursday morning Zoom at 7:15a-7:45a Meeting ID 7079548230 Password LOCAL707

Thursday
Coffee and Conversation was spent discussing the Cannabis Portal. I am at the Zoom link above every single Thursday morning if you’d like to chat. We can talk about whatever is on your mind.
I attended the HAT Zoom Meeting. There were a lot of attendees because Jake Morley was there to talk about the Bella Vista and Vineyards Crossings. They have Vineyards Crossings on their website but not Bella Vista. https://guilloninc.com/project/vineyard-crossing-ukiah
Also there was discussion about the second phase of the Orr Creek Commons project by RCHDC  https://www.rchdc.org/development/development-pipeline/
The subject of the Millview Apartments came up of course, as soon as I have information about that I will be sharing. I think the applications may be coming out in December. This is a USDA Funded Ag Worker housing project so we want to make sure that they have every opportunity to get that leased up with local community members as quickly as possible. 
I also attended the EDFC Board Meeting. The EDFC Loan Coordinator will present to the BOS on Tuesday so I will share the slide show and of course you can watch it on YouTube. 

Friday
Meet with Marla and Jason from the Unconditional Freedom Project, regarding the work they are doing at the Mendocino County Jail. They are part of the work that is being done on Restorative Justice in the jail. I have an agenda item coming forward on the whole program but if you want to get a sneak peek please take a look at their website: https://unconditionalfreedom.org/prison-food-project/
MOVING DAY!!
While I was moving I was responding to emails and phone calls. One email I received was concerned about infrastructure and blurred some things that the City of Ukiah does with what the County Board of Supervisors but at the end he wrote: "But yet these streets and bridges cannot be taken care of for the community that are in neighborhoods that have poor people living in them. Or what the city considers the poor part of town. I would like the city supervisors to address this issue please." I asked him to call me on my cell to discuss but I did find it amusing that as I was reading that I was busy moving to the "poor part of town." Welcome to the neighborhood Supervisor Mulheren!! LOL Hope he calls me back, I can invite him to my porch to chat. 

Saturday
PumpkinFest yay!
PumpkinFest is my second favorite Ukiah event! I have been volunteering for six years for "Vendor Load-In". Up bright and early (technically still dark) at 5am to bring in the vendors. I also did a Family Zumba demo and worked as a bouncer in the Greater Ukiah Business and Tourism Alliance beer and wine booth! (And moved some more things over, what a day!)


Sunday
Sunday was my first Family Zumba. Ok technically that's a personal thing but I just wanted to say that families exercising and dancing is great for our mental health!! Please join us https://www.facebook.com/groups/4345407202233730
Sheesh will I ever be done...... Moving!

Weekly Update #41 - October 12, 2021

Posted on October 13, 2021 at 11:10 PM Comments comments (579)
Hi Everyone! Things get a little hectic with my schedule this time of year so I’ll do my best to at least let you know which meetings I am attending so you know if you are interested in hearing more please call me or email and we can set up a time. 


Wednesday
Mendocino County - City of Ukiah Second District Supervisor meeting with Jim Brown from the Ukiah City Council. It’s important for the County Supes to connect with their counterparts in the Cities and with the MACs. We talk about everything from infrastructure to housing and mental health. 
We had an additional Mental Health Data Statistics Ad Hoc meeting. We are working on charting the data with the ANSA scores in a different way to share if people are improving over a variety of factors including; danger to others, meds compliance, suicide risk, anti-social behavior, substance use, residential stability.


Thursday
I had another Leadership meeting with the CSAC Institute. The title was “Finding the blind spots: Personal and Organizational Best Practices and Strategies for Countering Implicit Bias.” It was a good opportunity to work with Mendocino, Lake and Countywide leadership to come up with a plan for dealing with this important topic. 
Mendocino County Parks Ad Hoc met with the consultant and County staff to discuss some ideas for next steps after the BOS meeting. 


Friday
On Friday morning I met with Jim Brown to discuss the Mendo Recycle Interim Director position. 
Supervisor McGourty and I met with the City of Ukiah City Manager and some members of the Ukiah Rifle and Pistol Club to learn more about their current fire mitigation activities and their future plans. They wanted to make sure that everyone had the correct website http://www.ukiahrifleandpistol.com/ so theySorr can adequately address the concerns of neighbors. 

Saturday
I attended the MWPC Training for future political candidates. My most important message to those folks is to remember who you were before the campaign, and if you are lucky enough to be elected to not lose yourself to the position. At least that’s what I keep reminding myself. 
I volunteered for the Plowshares Empty Bowls Fundraiser. They’ve really got the drive thru event down! Such a great cause! If you’d like to know more about Plowshares please take a look at their website and consider donating. https://www.plowsharesfeeds.org/

Sunday
PACKING - psstttt moving day is this weekend! And then I’ll own a half a home (haha a townhouse) and I won’t have to worry about needing to move for the next four years. 


Monday
Agenda Items and email - Just getting caught up from the weekend! Hope you all had a good day off. 


Tuesday 
I had a check in with Anne Molgaard to hear about how things were going at Child Support Services and Public Health. 
In the afternoon I volunteered at the Good Farm Fund Fundraiser - It was a picnic at Barra and I had a great time talking to folks about how the grants that they give out help keep local farms running. They could use your support! Here is the website link: https://www.goodfarmfund.org


Sorry this is so short, I am sure I missed a few things, I’ll try to catch up next week after the move. Have a beautiful week!!

Hi friends! As you know every Tuesday I share what I've been up to for the week. Last week I was in Monterey at the RCRC Conference (Rural County Representatives of California). There is some info from the presentations that I attended in this weeks report. As I say every week this is not all of the activities that I do in a given week I just want to give you an idea of things that I’m working on in case they interest you.

Wednesday: RCRC the two interesting topics this morning were about the implications of the migration of California except for... the data is not showing that people are leaving the state but instead are moving from more urban areas to more rural areas. Especially with the ability to work from home the change in where people in California live. Another interesting point is that because of the large number of Baby Boomers that are hanging on to their homes and not choosing to downsize which doesn't leave room in the housing market for millennials that are now ready to purchase a home. Also we heard from Leon Panetta, Former U.S. Secretary of Defense about his long career in politics. In the afternoon we heard from several companies that turn plastic in to building blocks. The one I'm the most excited about only charges $300,000 per year. The blocks could be used for a variety of structures although not residential homes. Its exciting that we are getting innovative what to do with the plastic that is just sitting on loading docs. We also heard from three reporters that cover Politics in America. What happened with the Capitol Hill Riot, the Newsom Recall campaign and what is going to happen in 2022. 

Thursday: RCRC
We had a good conversation about parks and activities for kids at Coffee and Conversation on Thursday morning. 
I took a break from the conference to attend the Blue Zones meeting about Active Transportation. I think what the City of Ukiah did with the Streetscape is a great example of a built environment that is meant to encourage additional pedestrian activity. There is a lot more work to do though, where do you think additional pedestrian and bicycle access could go? 
We had to have a Closed Session MSWMA Board meeting to discuss the potential of hiring an Interim Director 
In the afternoon at the Conference we had the opportunity to explore. I went for a walk down to Cannery Row to buy a souvenir for my girls and granddaughter. Thursday evening there was a dinner and raffle at the conference and I won a gift basket from Tuolumne County so I can't wait to visit and take a tour with Supervisor Jaron Brandon.

Friday:
The final day of the RCRC Conference is a Policy Discussion and Vote. I am not currently the County BOS Delegate but this is much like what I did with the Redwood Empire Division for the League of California Cities when I was on the Ukiah City Council. I look forward to someday serving as the Mendocino County delegate.  


Saturday:
As you know there was a special BOS Meeting scheduled for Tuesday so on Saturday I was reviewing all of the information for that agenda and the LAFCO Agenda. 


Sunday:
I spent some time with my youngest daughter and my granddaughter on Sunday <3 Love that time we get to have together. That's not County related I just wanted to remind you how important it is to connect with your family. 


Monday: 
LAFCO -Will continue to meet remotely, reviewing every 30 days.

Wednesday
BHAB Dr Jenine Miller and her staff have been working many many hours and Dr Miller has been working on call since 2008
Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) Three-Year (2020-2023) Plan Public Hearing – Karen Lovato, BHRS Senior Program Manager (https://www.mendocinocounty.org/home/showpublisheddocument/45781/637674118363230000) Comments: that PHF should be a priority, we have the CRT and training center the PHF is the next important step. We need more CIT (Crisis Intervention Training), and is there training for peer counselors? We need to do more work with wellness and workforce education. What worked was community connections and something to do and being in a facility with people having mental crisis was not helpful. Using street drugs replaces drugs and medication. We need to make sure we keep the MHSA match with Medical to be able to provide programs 

I am on an Ad Hoc with CoU Councilmember Jim Brown and we met to discuss the MendoRecycle Interm GM with County Staff and City of Ukiah Public Works Director, City of Fort Bragg City Manager. As the program is under a possible transition its important that there is someone guiding the ship. 

Ukiah Senior Center Board of Directors - The freezer is on the fritz, need to find funds to order a new one but there are also construction needs to install it. If you know any contractors that are willing to work pro-bono please reach out. Anyone can become a member of the Ukiah Senior Center and many activities are available to the general community. https://www.ukiahseniorcenter.org/

I met regarding Substance Abuse Treatment Services with Dr Miller and Supervisor McGourty. It's  incredibly important that when an addict is ready to seek recovery they are given options that will work for them. https://www.mendocinocounty.org/government/health-and-human-services-agency/substance-use/adult-recover-services

Thursday
I listened in on a Zoom webinar about the OCAP Learning Conversation about Compassionate Supervision. The last year and a half have been incredibly challenging for employees and employers. Its important that we meet our employees with compassionate understanding where they are. We need to make sure that internally we are looking at flexibility of schedules and the needs of our employees.
I listened in on the Countywide Oversight Board Meeting for the RDA funds. I'm not officially appointed yet but I have been listening to the meetings since January and was previously the City of Ukiah alternate. The City of Ukiah has several projects that they are wrapping up so its important that the Second District Supervisor sits on this Board.


Friday
MCAFD - cancelled (I drove over to Boonville and the meeting was cancelled, so as always a nice trip over the hill.)
Move 2030 - Meeting with Mary Anne Petrillo, Michelle Hutchins and Supervisor Williams to discuss what we need to bring the item before the full board 
I listened in on the Emergency Access Program for Ag for both cannabis and traditional agriculture harvests which are typically during fire season. Its important that we have a workable plan that OES and Staff are able to work with industry stakeholders and business owners to make sure they can safely access their properties. 
The students at Sonoma University are working on a project they call "Rising Waters: Water Quality and Homelessness". They are working on determining a policy plan to reduce the impact that homelessness has on our waterways. One of the biggest challenges and community conversation is whether or not porto-potties should be provided at known camping locations. http://news.sonoma.edu/article/innovative-partnership-tackles-homelessness-while-also-protecting-waterways

Saturday
Took a walk on the GRT with my daughter and the stroller gang. Love to see people out using the trail. There was a family with several small children and they were so happy to be able to be running and the giggles were adorable. If you haven't yet walked on the rail trail (4 years later there are still a lot of misconceptions) I'm happy to walk with you or you can join our Facebook page and find a walking partner. https://www.facebook.com/groups/greatredwoodtrailukiah

Weekly Update #38 - September 21, 2021

Posted on September 22, 2021 at 9:45 PM Comments comments (383)
Wednesday
Reminder that the First Day of Hispanic Heritage Month, is September 15, 2021!! If you are a teacher or interested community member this website has a lot of resources for you: https://www.hispanicheritagemonth.gov/

On Wednesday we had a City of Ukiah + County Parks meeting with Neil Davis and Supervisor Glenn McGourty. I know Neil from being on the City Council and his work with Walk & Bike Mendocino. He is also the Executive Director of the Ukiah Valley Trail Group so he has parks experience as well. Several of the County parks have UVTG trails and as you know portions of Low Gap Park are owned by the City. The City of Ukiah is also great at getting grants so it seems like a logical partnership. More to follow. 

The Library Advisory Board meets once a month to share what is going on with each of the branches, they also have the renewal of the Sales Tax coming up which is an important conversation. I think we will hear a lot more about that soon. 

The final Ukiah Valley Russian River Cleanup planning meeting was on Wednesday. Deborah said there were 80 volunteers and 16 sites. I am heading up the area underneath the “New Courthouse“ bridge. Hope to see you there Saturday.


Thursday
As usual we had the Coffee and Conversation meeting. This is every Thursday at 7:15am-7:45am on Zoom! Log in with your questions, concerns, rants, raves whatever. Let’s talk as in real life as we can get, virtual. Meeting ID 7079548230Password LOCAL707
At our monthly Mendocino Business and Government Leaders meeting we discussed the possible order that Dr Coren was coming out requiring signage for restaurants and bars. Here is the link to the official Public Health Order: https://www.mendocinocounty.org/home/showpublisheddocument/45821/637677598084930000
We had the MSWMA meeting on Thursday. The TAC has been working on a solution to bring forward for the future of the agency. In the meantime there is an urgent funds need that each member agency is going to need to speak with their individual boards about. 
I organized a meeting with the City, Ukiah Valley Fire District, the Assessor, Acting Auditor and Executive Office staff about the annexation of the City of Ukiah into the Ukiah Valley Fire District. The tax sharing is an important piece that needs to happen before the end of the year. It a zero exchange with the County but the Board of Supes needs to approve it. 


Friday
I had the Workforce Alliance of the North Bay Governing Board Meeting we heard updates about their programs. Mendocino County is a piece of this larger collaboration and its a great resource for a small agency like ours.  https://www.workforcealliancenorthbay.org/
I dropped in on the MCAAC to make sure that the “Coal Train” is on their radar. You can read more here: https://www.times-standard.com/2021/09/07/north-coast-lawmakers-rally-against-plan-to-ship-coal-out-of-humboldt-bay-via-rail/

Saturday
Of course Saturday was National Clean Up day. I did a clean up at the Courthouse Bridge. I had a few community members and some students from UHS Club Latino come out to help. I can’t wait to hear how many tons were collected. 

Sunday
I was prepared to do an advertisement for Sheriff's Office recruitment but it turned out they were too short staffed to do the project. A reminder that we are actively recruiting for jobs in Mendocino County. 

Monday
I had a meeting with Jim Brown from the Ukiah City Council about MSWMA having an Interim Director take over to sort out what needs to happen next. The situation with the budget has been highlighted with so many people cleaning out their garages and closets over the last year during the Shelter in Place. Mendo Recycle has served the County for quite some time but with the changes in recycling and hauling regulations related to treated wood and policies coming down about Mixed Waste Organics we need to prepare for what the future is going to look like.
