Monthly Update May 2022

Posted on June 15, 2022 at 4:50 PM Comments comments (405)

Hi, I’m Mo Mulheren the Second District Supervisor.

 

Each month the Board members submit a written report that updates the other Board members and the community on the work that we are doing. I would also like to use this as an opportunity to share with you all events I’ve attended as well as other updates from our community. Here is a list of pertinent meetings and links so that you can look at websites or videos and of course reach out if you have additional questions.

 

At the beginning of the month County IT made the switch to Microsoft Outlook. I am hoping this will make it easier to search and archive emails which was a challenge with the other system. Using the mobile Microsoft applications will also make it more efficient to work from wherever I am, County Office, IPad, Home Office, or my cell phone. As you know being a County Supervisor is a 24/7 job, I have an album on my @Mo4Mendo Facebook page that shows a little bit about where I am working from just to give context.

 

Every Thursday morning I start my day with a Zoom Meeting I call “Coffee and Conversation”. The Meeting ID is 7079548230 and the password is LOCAL707. I hope you will consider joining and asking your questions about what is happening in Mendocino County.

 

May 2nd LAFCO

LAFCO meetings are still on Zoom but the commissioners would like to go back to in person soon. We discussed the upcoming work plan and budget for next fiscal year.

 

May 3rd BOS Meeting: at this meeting we recognized the work that our team members do through three proclamations, one for Public Service Week, one for National Police Week and one for National Correction Officers Week. We also approved the Ag Pass program to allow small business owners to have access to the farms in the event of an emergency. We also reviewed and approved the Juvenile Justice Coordination Plan and Approve the agreement with AECOM Technical Services, Inc to provide the Construction Management Services to complete the Measure B Psychiatric Health Facility at 131 Whitmore Lane, expected year of completion 2025.

 

May 4th Mendocino County - City of Ukiah Second District Meeting. On the first Wednesday of the month I meet with Mayor Jim Brown and the city manager for the City Of Ukiah. This helps connect the county and the city so that we don’t duplicate efforts and we understand important discussions and initiatives incurred occurring in each others agencies.

 

May 4th Walking Wednesday- I started a “Walking Moai” with the Blue Zones Project. A Moai is a group of 5-10 people that connect through a healthy activity like walking or volunteering. Connecting with the community are key in my life. Our mental and physical health improve by getting outdoors. Please contact the Blue Zones Project of Mendocino County to learn how to create a Moai in your neighborhood.

 

May 10th CEO/CAO Ad Hoc Discussion - We had to update the CEO/CAO Ad Hoc item to bring it back to the Board for the final decision, at this time I don’t have anything different to add than what was proposed which is the Board having more direct contact with Department Heads and their evaluations.

 

May 10th Mental Health Data Reports Ad Hoc - We had a meeting to review the Mental Health Data Reports to try and provide information about outcomes to our community. It’s very challenging in that no agencies across the State have such a report. RQMC analyses and posts data on the shared website of all of our service providers. Here is the link in case you need it: https://www.rqmc.org/

 

May 11th Fire Chiefs Meeting in Hopland, I attended the Fire Chiefs meeting in Hopland. We received a presentation on Emergency services and had a round robin conversation about the challenges the departments face with more calls and less volunteers.

 

May 12th Coffee and Conversation, this is a good place to remind you that every Thursday morning between 7:15a-7:45a I have a meeting on Zoom. This is your opportunity to bring to me any issues or questions or share successes that are happening in our communities.

 

May 12th Monthly Parks Ad Hoc Committee - The Parks Ad Hoc meets monthly with staff to get updates on the maintenance, outreach and repairs. We were discussing the needs going in to budget hearings. We realize there are way more projects than dollars so that will be a challenging conversation but we can’t retain the parks and not fund the repairs or at least maintain them. We continue to do outreach and seek possible partnerships with organizations like the City of Ukiah and volunteer groups in our communities.

 

May 12th Tax Sharing Ad Hoc - The Tax Sharing Ad Hoc of Supervisor Gjerde and myself met with the City Manager of Willits, City Manager of Ukiah and their team members as well as County Executive Staff. We are trying to keep it as simple as possible so that if the Cities in our County need to annex there is a simplified process. All of the cities have agreed to this simplified approach and the County would like some time to consider the process.

 

May 12th Adopt-A-Road Pilot Program - I am working with County Staff and Supervisor Gjerde to enhance the Adopt-A-Road Program. We have volunteers throughout the County that want to clean up illegal dumps and the program would essentially cover their disposal fees. Through this conversation we decided that it wasn’t a fit with the Adopt-A-Road Program but could be a stand alone program called Clean Mendocino. It needs to go before the MSWMA Board for discussion before it comes back to the Supes.

 

May 12th Special IWPC Meeting - Closed session discussion with legal council regarding the PG&E relicensing. Open session updates on committees and a PVP proposed ballot measure, raising of the Coyote Valley Dam and the Coho Salmon and Steelhead. If you are reading this please take some time to understand what the Potter Valley project and Increased capacity to Lake Mendocino mean to our economy. Here is a link: https://mendoiwpc.com/our-shared-water/

 

May 13th MCAFD Special Meeting- We had a special meeting of the Fire/EMS Ad Hoc and our fire partners to discuss the possibility of bringing a Fire Sales Tax Initiative forward to the Board, Discussion of the Fire Training Structures and how to get them placed and EMS services funding in the County.

 

May 15th Extension of the City View Trail - I attended the Grand Opening of the new section of the “City View Trail” in Low Gap Park. I encourage you to check it out. Here is a link to the maps: https://mendotrails.org/trails/low-gap-park-trails/

 

May 15th RCS Foster Care Awareness Event - I attended the RCS Foster Care Month event to raise awareness for connected communities to our Foster Kids. It was unfortunately poorly attended but I had a great time meeting the people in their booths and talking with the kids. Resource families are so important for our kids.

 

May 17th BOS Meeting - Receive a presentation of the BID and a future Mendocino County Water Agency. Have a kick off discussion to tie the Sales Tax conversations together for the Boar, contemplate combining fire and water and spreading the resources County wide.

 

May 18th Ukiah Valley Basin Groundwater Sustainability Agency Workshop - Discussion of Drought Concerns, You can watch the YouTube link here: https://youtu.be/RHzshVA3o0s

 

May 18th Meet re Brush Street Homeless Encampment clean up options I met with some potential contractors to discuss the possible cost of cleaning up the Brush Street homeless Encampment.

 

May 19th MSWMA Meeting - Meet to discuss possible candidates for General Manager and it is not looking good. Only one qualified candidate from out of State, looking at alternative options.

 

May 19th Rivino Fire Survivor Event - I was honored to present the Volunteer of the Year awards to United Disaster Relief at this year’s Fire Survivor Reunion Event.

 

May 20th FB Blue Economy Summit - I went to Fort Bragg to listen in on the Blue Economy Summit. Although its out of my district I think its important that every Supervisor understand the concerns of our entire County. Changing environments and environmental standards make this economy tough but they are working on innovative ideas!

 

May 20th Meet with Julia Krog to discuss constituent concerns - There were some concerns with Planning and Building so I met with Director Krog. I find it more efficient to have one meeting and discuss issues. Our department heads are very responsive to the needs of our constituents. I realize nothing happens fast enough especially when you are working through Government but our team is trying to get things through as quickly as possible.

 

May 21st and 22nd Andie’s SPACE show - This one is not on County time but I wanted to say I am grateful to SPACE and all of their sponsors for providing out youth with an outlet for their creativity. My daughter Andie was in three shows this weekend, every one was a little unique and the kids loved it.

 

May 23rd GRTA Board of Directors The GRTA Board meets to discuss the dissolution of NCRA and the creation of the new Great Redwood Trail Board. We hope to have a staff member on Board soon as the project officially kicks of July 1.

 

May 23rd Arbor to talk about nitrous oxide ban in tobacco shops - I went to the youth Council at the Arbor. They would like to bring a Nitrous Oxide ban in tobacco shops in the Unincorporated County to the Board. Because summer vacation is about to begin it may take some time. The City of Ukiah has already approved a ban.

 

May 24th Meet with a member of the community about a future business idea. If you have something you’d like to talk about please reach out I’m happy to hear your thoughts.

 

May 25th BHAB Board

Public Comment: NewLife.Health facility that offers Addiction support services came to talk about the services they are offering to make the community aware that they are open and accepting new patients. We need members on BHAB please consider joining!

Bring a flyer to local farmers markets, Big Times and other events to try and recruit membership Dr Miller - Contracts with the service providers will be going to the Board of Supervisors. RQMC will still continue as the ASO but there will be more direct collaboration with the County to the service providers

We are spending about $3 million a year on LPS conservatorships and that’s for about 60-64 persons and that will increase if California Care Court is approved. We are going through many audits MHSA program, MHSA finance, EQRO audit, Medical Audit, Triennial Audit, SUDT Cost report audit and that has taken up a lot of staff time. It seems that the State is catching up after COVID, so far the feedback has been positive

County Mental Health is trying to work more collaboratively with our Tribal Communities to create more collaboration.

Weekly Update #16 - April 19, 2022

Posted on April 19, 2022 at 9:55 PM Comments comments (5234)

Hey friends! I’m Mo Mulheren Second District Supervisor for the County of Mendocino. Each week I put out a written report of the projects I’ve been working on and meetings I’ve been attending. This is a brief summary, or highlights if you will, just to let people know the topics that I am working on and if you are interested give you the opportunity to connect with me about these topics.

 

Once a month the Ukiah Main Street Program has a meeting for the Downtown merchants to discuss upcoming promotions and challenges that they may be having in the district. The Ukiah Downtown District is from Oak Street to Main Street and north to Norton Street, South to Gobbi Street. Unfortunately there will not be a Taste of Downtown next year they are hoping that they will get volunteers that would like to see this event come back attend meetings and start a committee. This event has been happening for decades and there are people for pro and con, from the sense of community and the window shopping to the con of it being called a “drunk fest”. Do you want to bring the Taste back? Reach out to Katrina and join the committee. There are great things happening this summer of course the First Friday Art Walk, Car Show, Sidewalk sales, Farmers Market etc. Take stroll and enjoy our Downtown.

Of course I was making sure to submit my Supervisors Report to the Clerk of the Board to be published with the agenda, that updates the Community with all of the work I’m doing on my assignments and ad hocs.

I did attend a Ukiah Earth Day Tire Amnesty planning meeting. This will be held in conjunction with the Ukiah Earth Day event at the Railroad Depot. Ukiah Valley residents can bring up to 9 tires to the event for recycling, they are instructed to enter from Clay Street and exit out of Perkins Street. The Ukiah High School Wrestling team will be assisting with unloading the tires. The City for Ukiah and Walk and Bike Mendocino will be providing painting projects and litter clean up opportunities for any residents that would like to join in. Visit the City of Ukiah Rec page for more info.

At the Transit Productivity Committee, which is a joint effort of MCOG Ad Hoc and MTA Ad Hoc to discuss any challenges we are having with public transportation. The major concerns persist, inability to hire qualified drivers and low public confidence in taking community transportation due to COVID concerns.

Every Thursday morning I start my day with something I call Coffee and Conversation. This is an opportunity for you to come and chat with me about whatever is on your mind. I am on Zoom at Meeting ID 7079548230 and Password LOCAL707

I joined the Inland Housing Action Team Meeting. They mostly discussed challenges to developers to build in California with lack of work force, expenses of materials and stringent regulations in California.

We had a meeting with Jared Huffman about Potter Valley Project, there were members from the water districts, the Supervisor Ad Hoc as well as the City of Ukiah Ad Hoc. There is still a lot in the air with the PG&E property, the needs of the Russian and Eel Rivers. Congressman Huffman stressed the need to collaborate with all of the parties. There were many questions about the studies to support restoration of Salmon and whether or not they would be successful in the water. I know you guys hate it when I say this but there will be more to come. Happy to discuss further just hop on to my Thursday meeting or give me a call 7073913664

I also went in to the Low Gap campus to review Chambers technology and see if I have concerns. But of course I did not.

 

Bright and early Friday morning we had a CDBG grant meeting to discuss scope of clean up in Covelo. Unfortunately we got about half of the grant so we will have to adjust the work plan and wanted to have a conversation with the partners so that everyone understood before the item went forward to the board on the Consent calendar next week.

Ok this is a personal thing but I wanted to just mention that I got to sub for Zumba at Young for Life. I mixed it up and did Country Fusion but there were about 15 differently abled adults learning how to boot scoot and electric slide their way to health and wellness. Although most of the folks do wear masks you could certainly see the smiles in their eyes.�� That’s not a Supervisor thing I just wanted to share something lovely that happened during my week.

 

On Saturday I went on a field trip to Fort Bragg to the Mitchell Creek Neighborhood to visit the cannabis project that was seeking a repeal of the Planning commission determination against their Cannabis Accommodating District. It helped me when reviewing the item to see the project on the ground as well as study the neighborhood at a ground level.

 

I hope you get to spend time with your family on Sunday for Easter.

 

Monday was a long day of Agenda prep to prepare for Tuesdays meeting. Tuesdays agenda as 1,663 pages of information so my process includes looking at the agenda items the day they come out (Thursdays) , throughout the weekend and then preparing the bulk of my notes and questions on Monday. Often times if I have a question I go directly to staff so if you ever have a question on an agenda item always feel free to pull the item during the public meeting or send me a text over the weekend and I’ll try to get you an answer.

 

As always these are just my notes on the board meeting and not the official public record.

Hey friends! I’m Mo Mulheren Second District Supervisor for the County of Mendocino. Each week I put out a written report of the projects I’ve been working on and meetings I’ve been attending. This is a brief summary, or highlights if you will, just to let people know the topics that I am working on and if you are interested give you the opportunity to connect with me about these topics.

This week I had the monthly County City 2nd District Meeting. It’s important that we keep an open line of communication to be able to discuss what’s going on. The City is going to be undergoing renovations of Dora Street this summer and will have a public meeting about the future of the Orr Street Bridge. Please visit their website at CityOfUkiah.Com/Streets

I am embarking on the CSAC Leadership Initiative and last week there was a meeting held in Ukiah about understanding budgets for County Government. The class has people from Lake County and Mendocino County, it was great to be able to meet in person and network. Although they went through the information quickly it was still a valuable exercise. The most important thing to me is that we spend the publics money wisely and that everything is transparent. 

On Saturday I did the RV Rancheria Spirit Run. It was great to see everyone out and about smiling and having a healthy activity to connect with. 

Here are the videos uploaded to the County YouTube page in case you’ve missed them: 



Not too many meetings on my agenda this week, but I did have a chance to go back and review some of the MCD Meetings

As always if you have any questions please feel free to text me 707-391-3664 or send me an email [email protected]

Or pop on to my Thursday Morning Zoom at 7:15a-7:45a

Hey friends! I’m Mo Mulheren Second District Supervisor for the County of Mendocino. Each week I put out a written report of the projects I’ve been working on and meetings I’ve been attending. This is a brief summary, or highlights if you will, just to let people know the topics that I am working on and if you are interested give you the opportunity to connect with me about these topics.

 

On Wednesday morning I had an Interview with KZYX about the two suspected murders in Ukiah. We have a lot of work to do as a community around homelessness and mental health. I would like to discuss this anytime and hope you will come to my next Zoom meeting on Thursday at 7:15a-7:45a

I had a meeting about Public Health and Prevention programs.

At our MTA meeting we continued to discuss capturing various grant funds and trying to improve services to our community. Do you ride the MTA? What are your thoughts?

I was invited to a Courthouse Meeting about the new Courthouse. Its exciting to hear that this project is moving forward. There will be more to come about the design of the Courthouse and community meetings as well as what to do with the "current" Courthouse.

 

We had a meeting on Friday morning about the grant with CDBG for a Covelo Clean Up. This is one of those things where the wheels of Government turn slowly. When I was visiting Covelo early in 2021 about cannabis I noticed how many abandoned vehicles and illegal dumping there was. When I was meeting with the City Manager of Ukiah he recommended that the County try to get a CDBG Grant to clean it up. It looks like we are going to receive about half of the amount requested so we met to talk about what we could do with those funds and how to help get the area cleaned up.

I also volunteered at the iEmpathize Apathy Event. Its eye opening to hear personal stories about sex trafficking in Mendocino County. If you missed this event please look at their website to learn more. https://iempathize.org/

In the afternoon I had a GRT Meeting with interested party about how the Great Redwood Trail is working in Ukiah and what should be expected as the project is built out. I always tell people the key is engagement so I hope that you all will stay engaged!

 

MCAFD meeting in Anderson Valley we discussed the upcoming public meeting with LAFCO for the CSA 3 as well as how we could find funding for ambulance service.

In the evening I hosted the First Friday Art Walk and visited a new business soft opening on School Street in Ukiah.

 

Saturday afternoon I had a coffee meeting re industry in Mendocino County and how the Board of Supervisors could support local businesses.

 

Of course on Sunday I spent a lot of time on Agenda Prep for the Monday LAFCO Meeting as well as the Board of Supervisors Meeting.

 

Monday we had a LAFCO meeting and discussed what the opportunities and challenges are with CSA3 and how the County of Mendocino could use them.

In the evening I listened in to the Ukiah Vecinios en accion meeting where they discussed the possibility of a park on the south end of town at Grace Hudson School and how they could work with the Ukiah School Board to achieve this.

 

Tuesday Board Meeting Outcomes, as always please remember this is not the official record but rather my notes as an individual Supervisor

Hey friends! I’m Mo Mulheren Second District Supervisor for the County of Mendocino. Each week I put out a written report of the projects I’ve been working on and meetings I’ve been attending. This is a brief summary, or highlights if you will, just to let people know the topics that I am working on and if you are interested give you the opportunity to connect with me about these topics.

 

At the Behavioral Health Advisory Board we received and discussed the 2021 Dashboards regarding mental health. Here is the link so you can take a look. https://www.mendocinocounty.org/home/showpublisheddocument/50004/637831395056030000

 

Every Thursday morning I start my day with something I call Coffee and Conversation. It is a half hour time where I am on Zoom so that you can come and chat with me about whatever you'd like to share. You can join in! Thursdays 7:15a-7:45a Zoom Meeting ID 7079548230 Password LOCAL707 I am also considering having a once a month in person meeting. Would you be interested in that? What day of the week or time would work for you?

I had a series of meetings that kept me busy with a variety of topics. Coffee about water in the Ukiah Valley; A Zoom meeting about the CEO/CAO; Discussion that needs to come back to the Board; I attended a Ukiah Women In Business Networking planning meeting. ; Tire and Mattress event planning; IWPC meeting with county Team regarding funding sources.

 

On Friday we had an On-site parks meeting at Indian Creek and Faulkner Parks in the Anderson Valley.

I was invited to attend the reception and dinner for the Redwood Empire division of the League of California Cities.

 

I just wanted to put in a plug; if you are not busy on Saturday don't forget to visit the Ukiah Farmers Market! They update their vendors list on their Facebook page every Friday! https://www.facebook.com/UkiahFarmersMarket

 

I'd like to also put in a random plug for clothing Swaps. It is a fun way to help the planet and refresh your wardrobe.

 

On Monday we had a BOS Closed Session Meeting.

I also had a Volunteer clean up program meeting.

 

On Tuesday the Board had an Evacuation Drill and a Technology Drill in Board Chambers in advance of our In-Person meeting coming on April 19th.

This is a brief summary, or highlights if you will, just to let people know the topics that I am working on and if you are interested give you the opportunity to connect with me about these topics.

 

Wednesday afternoon I attended the Library Advisory Board meeting virtually. We received a report from all of the branches and the Board wanted to continue with the A-87 Ad Hoc to make sure that the Auditor was appropriately distributing the refund of expense to the library.

 

Wednesday evening the Ukiah City Council met and discussed the new trail in Low Gap Park, conducted a garbage rate hearing and introduced three ordinances for a change in the shopping cart ordinance, an efficient landscape ordinance and a procedure for expediting electric vehicle charging systems. You can watch the full meeting on the City website at CityOfUkiah.Com

The Third Thursday of the month we have the Mendocino Business and Government Leaders meeting. This originally started as ways to support businesses through Covid and now we discuss a variety of issues. Dr Coren was in the meeting to handle any questions electeds or the City Managers might have. I hope we are able to work together if there are more variants to hand the them safely while considering the businesses in our community and their needs.

We had our regular MSWMA (MendoRecycle) meeting. Tom Varga the Interim GM reported that the job is flying and so far have not had any interested candidates. We discussed a reimbursement fund for volunteers that clean up roadside trash and the ability to have Probationers and Inmates back to help for clean ups this summer.

I had a great meeting with the Volunteer Network about organizing youth volunteers in the City to clean up litter and graffiti. Hope to have more info soon.

After that I had Interview with Grand Jury about a variety of topics. I love those folks. I’m a real straight shooter so I appreciate their questions. (Did you know you can ask me questions anytime on social media, on my Zoom or by scheduling an appointment? I love to chat about local government)

 

The Workforce Alliance of the North Bay meeting this week was cancelled due to lack of quorum.

On Friday evening I attended the Blue Zones Project Kick Off and Ribbon Cutting of the team’s new office at the Alex Rohrbaugh Center in South Ukiah.

 

Saturday was a great community event for the Kick-Off of the Blue Zones Project in Mendocino County. We had a great turn out of local health related non-profits and I got to do a fun demo of Country Fusion Line Dancing.

 

Sunday afternoon my youngest daughter and I attended the Women's History Celebration where three local women were honored for their work in healthcare in Mendocino County.

ADJOURNMENT

 

 

At the City of Ukiah City Council meeting on Wednesday night they discussed the Western Hills Open Land and development, mixed waste organic and a streets project for Dora Street. You can watch the video here: http://www.cityofukiah.com/meetings/

 

On Thursday morning I participated in a CSAC Leadership Initiative class called: Conscious Leadership. Some of the keys to Conscious Leadership include Self-Awareness, Visible Commitment, Personal Reflection and being Intentional. The presenter says “Becoming self-aware is the single most beneficial thing you can do to up your leadership style. This is the act of getting to know yourself not only as a leader but as a person.” This can sometimes be a challenge self-reflection can be hard but when you are aware of your thoughts, feelings and motives you can better monitor and manage them. When we got to the part about “Visible Commitment” I recognized myself in the statement, “you articulate authentic commitment to being a conscious and supportive leader, challenge the status quo, hold others accountable, and creating a positive and empowering experience for your team(s) is a personal priority.” When we talked about being Intentional we really dove in to being authentic. I always say, I have no one else to be but myself. So I guess I’ve got that covered, JUST KIDDING. I’m grateful for the opportunity to reflect and learn other ways to become a better leader.

 

In between meetings I briefly hopped in to the Emergency Medical Care Committee meeting on Zoom. I’m looking forward to being more engaged in this conversation. Ambulance service is so critical in rural communities and we have a lot of work to do in Mendocino County.

I had a meeting at Manzanita Services, they are excited to bring a Mental Health Wellness Fair and series of seminars to our community. Make sure that you follow them on Facebook for updates: https://www.facebook.com/ManzanitaServices

I also had a meeting at the Ukiah Recovery Center about an opportunity to expand services. If you know someone that is struggling with addiction please have them reach out to County SUDT or the Ukiah Recovery Center to seek placement.

 

On Friday morning I went to the MCAFD meeting in Anderson Valley. We discussed the options available for possibly using CSA3 funding and the thoughts from the Chief's meeting regarding a County wide Fire Warden's Office.

I did an Earth Day Planning Meeting with the City of Ukiah and Walk and Bike Mendocino. More info coming soon but save the date for April 23rd

 

On Saturday morning I went to the Ackerman Creek Clean up with South Ukiah Rotary. The clean up was half homeless trash and half household trash that people had dumped over the bridge.

 

This isn't Supervisor related but I wanted to say its awesome to have in person events again; this weekend I hosted the First Friday Art Walk, went to an Anniversary party for a local salon at Rivino, and to Live music at McCarty's in Redwood Valley. Its going to be a busy summer!

 

LAFCO - a year of working together with the City and UVSD has provided a lot more collaboration and opportunities to move forward. Direction given to LAFCO staff to work with UVSD and City of Ukiah for out of area service agreements for the area near the Brush Street Triangle

 

We were able to have a Mental Health Ad Hoc meeting and we have data for three years and want a little more data before it goes to the Board but we have the information we believe that the public has been wanting to see.

 

I'm sorry this weekly summary was delayed. I was cruising to Comptche and Sacramento. I'll tell you about it next week!

Hi I’m Mo Mulheren, the Second District Supervisor. Each week I issue a written report about some of the projects I’m working on and the meetings I attend. This is not a comprehensive list of my activities but meant to give you some ideas about topics that I am working on that might be of interest to you.

Coastal Permit Administrator https://youtu.be/Ee1KPy_wr3o

MCP Weekly Public Meeting https://youtu.be/K42EwGH-PR0

Dr Coren Update https://youtu.be/7IP1DFY3VwM

 

On Wednesday morning I attended the Behavioral Health Advisory Board meeting where we had an update from the service providers and discussed the changes that CalAIM will be bringing to our mental health systems.

The MTA continues to try and seek grant funds to create an electric fleet as well as update solar array to be able to support more electric busses.

I was able to hop in to the Russian River Confluence meeting, I am trying to seek the appropriate tribal representatives to also attend these meetings. Here is the link to the website if you know someone please send them my way! http://russianriverconfluence.org/

 

On Thursday morning I missed my Coffee and Conversation meeting in order to attend the South Ukiah Rotary to discuss trash. We had a great conversation about new ways to get household trash illegal dumping cleaned up and I was able to tell them about my homeless trash program.

 

As part of the CEO/CAO conversation we discussed that the Board of Supervisors needs to have more direct involvement with the Department Heads so we had two days of employee evaluations.

Over the weekend I reviewed our agenda, helped my mom move out of her house and then both nights attended and taught line dance class at the SPACE dance party. SPACE (School for Performing Arts) had two full days of dance lessons and then an evening of social dance. My pre-teen even let me hang out with her a little. I love busy weekends and keep an eye out on my personal pages for updates on SPACE's efforts to bring social dance to our community.

 

I continue to monitor the Stepping Up Initiative and their efforts to break down silos and create a data base to share information about clients between jail, mental health and courts. Its very important that we set these community members up for success as they are released back out in to the public.

 

You may have noticed that there was an update about ecomment on the County website and how items are processed from Atlas our Clerk of the Board. You can create an account and upload your comments and documents yourself directly from our website. This will streamline efforts on behalf of County staff but also ensure that you can see for yourself that your documents and comments were entered in to the public record.

 

Hope to see you (virtually) Thursday at 7:15a - 7:45a Meeting ID 7079548230 Password LOCAL707

Posted on February 23, 2022 at 9:00 PM Comments comments (947)
Hi I’m Mo Mulheren, the Second District Supervisor. Each week I issue a written report about some of the projects I’m working on and the meetings I attend. This is not a comprehensive list of my activities but meant to give you some ideas about topics that I am working on that might be of interest to you.

Meetings you might have missed on the Mendocino County Video YouTube page:


I usually catch up with the Ukiah City Council Meetings after the fact but on Wednesday I caught the meeting live. You can watch City Council meetings online here: http://www.cityofukiah.com/meetings/

Every Thursday morning I start my day with a meeting I call Coffee and Conversation. I hope you’ll take the time to join and discuss whatever is on your mind. The meeting ID is 7079548230 and the Password is LOCAL707 (I won’t be online this week 2/24 as I will be speaking in person at South Ukiah Rotary)

At our monthly Mendocino Business and Government Leaders we discussed the next steps out of the Covid pandemic, current case and vaccine rates. There will be some changes to the formatting of the data to provide current information that is relevant to where we are in the pandemic. 

The monthly meeting of MSWMA had a fairly light agenda with an update from the Interim District Manager. Here is the link to the job description which the City of Fort Bragg is helping advertise for: https://fortbragg.applicantpro.com/jobs/2232916.html

On Friday I met with Judy Morris and Supervisor Haschak on Zoom with Congressman Huffman.

Over the weekend I didn’t do any activities beyond checking emails and responding to folks on Facebook. It was nice to have a weekend to get caught up on household and office chores, I took a friend on a hike at Lake Mendocino and got to spend a full day with my granddaughter. 

I spent some time on Monday picking up and hauling trash. If you would like to help volunteer for a community trash pick up, to pick up homeless trash at various locations or clean up a park please send me your email address and I’ll make sure you get notified. Many hands make light work! 

Of course this is not an all inclusive list of the meetings I attend or work that I do, this is just to give you an idea of what I am working on so you can ask for an update of a topic that is interesting to you. 

I am always available by cell phone 707-391-3664 or by email at [email protected]
