Posted on March 1, 2022 at 7:40 PM Comments comments (1504)

 

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:

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

 

Have an amazing day!

 

As always this is not an official record but a summary of my notes on the Board Agenda.

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]

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.

I went to the B2 Stakeholders meeting via Zoom. There weren’t many agencies present but Sage let me discuss the trash program. For those of you that haven’t read the other updates we have begun a homeless trash program where we are able to hav folks bag the trash from their campsite and leave it at selected locations so we can pick it up and take it to the transfer station. Also B2 is Building Bridges, they have been hosting these meetings since they opened the emergency winter shelter. I try to attend if I don’t have conflicting meetings. 

I had my Mendocino County Water Agency Interview with GEI the consultants that were hired to work out a plan for the water agency. I think collaboration and being able to leverage the State and County dollars should be a focus. We need to look at consolidation, water storage and efficient uses of our water rights. There will be more about this so please make sure you follow my Facebook page for updates. 

I attended the virtual County of Mendocino Cannabis Program Update. I heard many times how it was the best meeting we’ve had yet. Kristen our Cannabis Program Director was able to address some of the frequently asked questions that have come up. I highly recommend you use Canna Notes on the Mendocino County webpage to sign up as well to learn more about what is coming up next. Here is the link to sign up. 

Every Thursday morning I start my day with Coffee and Conversation. Although I was on the road so I was in a Target parking lot. We had a good conversation about County Boards and Commissions, Cannabis and communication. You are always welcome to join me on Zoom. Thursday mornings at 7:15a to 7:45am Meeting ID 7079548230 Password LOCAL707

We had what will be our last Monthly Parks Ad Hoc Committee Meeting. The presentation will come to the Board sometime in March. Spoiler alert we don’t have enough money. So the Board will have to talk about prioritization and how important our parks are to our community. I’ll post more info about the agenda item when it gets closer. 

I visited the Willits Rotary virtual lunch meeting to talk about the Homeless trash pick up program and if they might be interested getting something similar started in Willits. 

I am the alternate on the Ukiah Valley Basin Groundwater Sustainability Agency. This week I didn’t have any conflicting meetings so I went to listen in. They chose West Yost to do the Administrative Services. I work with them on the Russian River Watershed Association I think they will do a good job for the agency. Larry Walker and Associates received feedback from the Board on the First Annual Report Implementation of the Groundwater Sustainability Plan. I’ll share more information as reports become available. These are good first steps in gathering data on water availability. 

On Friday morning I attended the Leadership Mendocino meeting. I graduated last year and really love this program. It’s always interesting to talk about this job a year in to it. I certainly see things differently from the inside now that I’m a Supe. Increased transparency and collaboration remain top goals. The Board is trying to do new things and I love any opportunity to talk to people about getting out of our comfort zones. Their debate topic for their meeting was the Great Redwood Trail. That’s one project that before I was on the City Council I didn’t really understand the need or how it would work in Ukiah. Now that it is a piece of a much bigger picture its a great opportunity to create something that’s going to work for our unique community. 

I had lunch with Senator McGuire. We talked about his new role in the Senate, how my first year was going and of course the importance of collaboration with the State and Counties. No one understands this more than McGuire. He’s really worked his way up through the ranks. The North Coast is lucky to have him. 

On Saturday morning I was able to clean up with Noble Wadelich our Ukiah Chief of Police and Joe Dishman. We tackled a large mound of trash on Brush Street. It was a combination of trash from homeless folks and people dumping off trash. I have a photo on my Facebook but it turned out to be 2,880 lbs of trash. I was so grateful that Chief Wadelich brought his personal pick up and dump trailer to help haul it off. I am going by on a more regular basis to make sure that it stays free of trash. 

This year I chose to attend the NACO Conference Virtually. 
Here is the link to the NACO News website so you can read all of the articles about the conference but here are some of the sessions that I attended. https://www.naco.org/news
The focus of the Sunday morning Rural Action Caucus Meeting- operating and maintenance costs of electric vehicles is lower but the cost to buy one is more expensive and there are concerns about the ability to provide the infrastructure needed to support the movement towards electric vehicles. Lots of discussion about how Federal funding to build out infrastructure is going to be critical to Electric Vehicle priorities. 
While I was listening to a conversation on the Opioid epidemic one speaker was discussing our lack of discussion about Addiction sets our communities up for failure and there is currently studies of a test that will let you know if you are at high risk for addiction so you can consider that before taking pain killers. I wonder if that will help people make more informed medical decisions. 
I also attended the webinars; The Power of the Arts: Arts as an Economic Driver, General Session - US House of Reps Nancy Pelosi ,
Implementing Local Infrastructure Investments, General Session - President Biden 

As always this is not a complete list of the work I’ve done this week or the meetings I’ve attended. This is just a conversation starter. If you want to know more please reach out via email [email protected] or text me at 707-391-3664
Have an amazing day!

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.

 

Once a month I meet with the City of Ukiah City Manager and Councilmember (and Current Mayor) Jim Brown. This is our opportunity to discuss issues that affect the Second District. Some that the County is working on and some that the City of Ukiah is working on. We talk about everything from traffic enforcement, to trash pick up and streets in Ukiah. If you have any specific questions you have I would be happy to hear from you and pass them along.

We had our RRWA Mendocino Annual Meeting. The Russian River Watershed Association spans across Mendocino and Sonoma Counties. I appreciate the Mendo staff advocating to make sure that we have equal representation as issues arise. We approved the work plan with our feedback. Our consultant West Yost is doing a good job of balancing the many varied needs of all of the agencies of this watershed. Would you like to learn more: https://www.rrwatershed.org/about/

 

I was happy to have FIVE people come to my Coffee and Conversation meeting this Thursday. We talked about everything from cannabis to housing and mental health. I hold this space every Thursday morning so that you can come and speak to me about whatever is on your mind. Its every Thursday from 7:15a-7:45a and the Zoom Meeting ID is 7079548230 and the Password is LOCAL707

As part of my work as a Supervisor I regularly attend workshops and meetings on Leadership. This last week I went to a Zoom meeting called Strengths-Based Leadership Building and Maintaining a Team Culture. In advance of the meeting there was a quiz that determined what are your top 5 strengths based on answering a series of questions within 10 seconds. I found the results interesting (especially the part about how people perceive my strengths as negatives). Here are the results: Positivity; You bring enthusiasm to people, groups and organizations, you can stimulate people to be more productive and hopeful, can get people excited about...., some will think you are too optimistic, others are energized to move towards excellence. Empathy;

Can sense what it feels like to be someone else, you can pick up on the pain and joy of others before they express it, People are drawn to you when they have a need or problem, you can become overwhelmed with daily issues, this is valuable because it allows the formation of close relationships. Developer;

You can see how others can move changes and grow, you love to see others make progress, the best experience in the world is to be part of other's development, others may not be interested or want to make the changes you think best, valuable because it helps you to see the potential in others. Futuristic; Fascinated by the future, see it positively, can see in detail what the future might hold, can energize yourself and others by your vision, others may dismiss you as a dreamer, valuable because your vision raises others insights. Activator; Can see how ideas can become action, want to do things now, very powerful in making things happen, may be criticized for being impatient, valuable because you generate the energy to get things done. I think that everyone should work on their personal and professional development but I specifically encourage all employees of the County to use the resources provided to you. If you aren't sure what they are please reach out to your Supervisor or HR.

 

On Friday morning I had a MCAFD Ad Hoc meeting in Anderson Valley. We discussed the CSA3 process through LAFCO and a potential Fire Warden position. It was a beautiful drive, as it always is. These conversations need to be ongoing and I look forward to hearing everyone's opinions on it and seeing how we can move reach compromises.

 

Not BOS related but I did get to Celebrate my granddaughter Teagan's 1st Birthday and my youngest daughter Andie turned 12. I love these little winter girls.

 

On Sunday afternoon I took a tour of JDSF with Chairman Michael Hunter from Coyote Valley Tribe. We started at the Jug Handle access point and went to Road 409 to view some of the work that has been done by loggers at JDSF a few years ago. There are two more opportunities for this tour on February 27th and 28th. The flyer is posted on my Facebook page or just text me if you'd like and I can send it to you. My cell is 707-391-3664

 

Monday morning we had our regularly scheduled LAFCO meeting and reviewed the workplan and budget. I know its challenging that some of these processes have taken so long. I'm hopeful that agencies will be able to coordinate with LAFCO staff to bring forward a plan to deal with future connections in the Ford Road area.

I had a meeting with Cherie Johnson regarding the CEO/CAO agenda item. I have no changes at this time other than the redline that was presented at a prior meeting and look forward to reading whatever red line versions my colleagues bring to the table.

I also had a meeting about the Depot Infrastructure project that is incomplete after several years due to funding challenges from the JCC to the local contractors. I will be working with our State leaders to hopefully get some relief to this contractors.

 

As always this is NOT the official Board record. I post this so that you all have the opportunity to learn what happened during the meeting without having to turn in to a full day on YouTube. Have a great day!

Weekly Update #5 - February 1, 2022

Posted on February 1, 2022 at 7:35 PM Comments comments (1272)

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.

 

The Behavioral Health Advisory Board met and discussed updates from the Behavioral Health Director and service providers. This citizen advisory committee is imperative to making sure that there is transparency and achievable outcomes. Have you considered joining a Board or Commission? I have a vacancy in District 2 if you are interested in learning more here is a link to the website so you can see what they work on: https://www.mendocinocounty.org/government/health-and-human-services-agency/mental-health-services/mental-health-board

 

Every Thursday morning I have a meeting I call Coffee and Conversation. I would love to have you join me it is on Zoom at 7:15am - 7:45 am and you can hop in to the meeting and join in with whatever topic of conversation you'd like to discuss from housing to mental health to cannabis.

 

MSWMA- Receive update from Interim Manager on recruitment for a FT Manager, hear from community members about illegal dumping, provide a small raise to the crew in the yard

 

I attended a webinar called "Trail Ambassador Program Tricks and Tips for Best Practices", I think our community does have valid concerns about the Great Redwood Trail and how that is managed so learning from other communities might provide some helpful insights before its even built.

 

There was a meeting of the Countywide Oversight Board which consists of the County and the four incorporated cities to make sure that the Redevelopment funds that were issued are appropriately tracked.

 

I attended (and completed) a Brown Act & Ethics Training presented by County Counsel. Elected officials and Board members must complete that every two years.

 

Friday afternoon I went to the Greater Ukiah Business and Tourism Alliance Cannabis 21+ Ribbon Cutting. The more that we can normalize dispensaries as businesses in our community the better! If you haven't been to a dispensary check it out.

 

I usually spend Sunday afternoon and evening on agenda review, this week we had a small agenda only 563 pages I must say I love the presentations being included in advance in the agenda and I hope it continues to streamline meetings.

 

The majority of my day Monday was filled with Cannabis discussion on agenda items and answer questions.

Weekly Update #4 - January 25, 2022

Posted on January 26, 2022 at 9:20 PM Comments comments (953)
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 interest you.

You might remember that I recorded some information as an advocate for the Blue Zone Project in Mendocino County unfortunately it was too dark so this week I Re-recorded the info last week. Which is a little funny because I forgot what I said! But that's ok because I am sure it was basically the same ;) Walk, be active, get involved https://mec.bluezonesproject.com/home

At the Library Advisory Board we heard discussion on the outcomes of the A87 allocation costs which has now been resolved and discussion on the upcoming need for a renewal tax. Have you ever wondered what is happening with the Libraries throughout the County or been interested in getting more involved. https://www.mendolibrary.org/about/library-advisory-board/lab-agendas-and-minutes

Every Thursday morning I start my day with a Zoom meeting I call Coffee and Conversation, this week we discussed cannabis relationships with the government, the homeless trash program, graffiti and the fetanyl issues in our community. If you would like to join in a round table conversation this is a great place to do that. You can join me every Thursday morning from 7:15-7:45a  

Monthly I host a meeting called Mendocino Business and Government Leaders - the major topics were testing for employers, how do we continue to support businesses through variants because we know this isn’t the end of Covid. Funding is an issue for businesses that are trying to stay open while employees have to call out sick. 
MSWMA - meeting postponed to the next Thursday due to improper noticing, member of the public was present to discuss illegal  dumping. 
Thursday afternoon I met with MCAVN to hear about the projects they are currently working on and the challenges they were having getting paid by some County departments. Fortunately there was a large contract on for the following agenda so that was resolved for now. Although contracts are an ongoing issue, which is why the General Government Committee takes the time to review each departments contracts. 

It took a while to coordinate but we finally had a City of Ukiah and County Parks Meeting about Low Gap Park and the Vichy Crossing at the Russian River. These are great opportunities for the City and County to collaborate improvement and programming strategies. I feel like this is a good time to remind everyone that programming works. If we have people using the parks, paying the rental fees and connecting with the community people don’t get up to mischief. So please join the Ukiah Valley Trail Group on a trail day and most importantly get out there and enjoy our parks. 
I also attended the North Coast Resource Partnership Quarterly Meeting. I’m the alternate but it is good to hear the projects they are working on and meet the other folks that are involved. If you are looking for more info on the North Coast Resource Partnership they have a beautiful website, check it out: https://northcoastresourcepartnership.org/

I did three rounds of homeless trash pick up from the Brush Street Triangle. I’m also getting a lot more interest from the community. If you’d like to help please reach out to me. My contact info is below.

Over the weekend I spent time studying the agenda and on Saturday afternoon I went to Todd Grove Park to meet with a couple of constituents about some challenges that they are having with a County department. These types of conversations give me opportunities to think about how  we can become more transparent and proactive as an agency.

The NCRA transition to the Great Redwood Trail Agency will open up more opportunities for access, environmental repair and fish access through collaboration. It’s a very exciting project to be a part of. 
I attended my first NACO Arts & Culture Commission, we heard about upcoming grant opportunities and discussed how the arts bring economic development to our communities. 
I listened in to the Stepping up Initiative, I have to say that from a year ago to where we are today I am so proud of this group and the increased collaboration. Keep going!!!
I attended a webinar about navigating new laws and protocols around public meetings and the Brown Act, I also have Brown Act Training next week. 

On Monday night I had an SEIU check in with the members. If you would like to discuss relevant topics I’m happy to hop on a Zoom or attend a meeting. Just let me know. 

In case you were wondering the kind of constituent concerns I heard about this week the topics were around cannabis, child protective services, noise ordinances, and housing/home ownership. I am always happy to hear your thoughts please reach out! [email protected] or text me at 707-391-3664 and of course join me on Thursday mornings at 7:15a-7:45a Zoom Meeting ID 7079548230 Password LOCAL707 

As a reminder, these are my notes from the meeting and not the official record. You can find that on MendocinoCounty.Org

2022 Weekly Update #3 - January 18, 2022

Posted on January 18, 2022 at 11:50 PM Comments comments (1461)
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 interest you. 

The housing conversation in Mendocino County is ongoing. I attended the Inland HAT meeting and among the topics discussed were the Infrastructure barriers to developing housing, the recreation of a County water agency will help with this but sewage is also an issue. We need to survey other areas and seek solutions, at the end of the day there needs to be a lot more communication. Additionally a very important topic of the “Missing middle” as some people call it or “workforce housing” meaning people that work and earn to much to receive subsidies but don’t have executive level jobs that the current market seems to favor. Again this is something being discussed not only in Mendocino County but across California. I’m wondering if you’ve heard of any innovative solutions elsewhere?

I worked at the County Public Health Vaccine clinic at the fairgrounds on Friday. It was MUCH slower than last week. If you have a friend that hasn’t gotten a booster or is ready to get the vaccine please have them visit MyTurn.Ca.Gov to schedule an appointment. 

Over the weekend I donated some couches to to the residents of the housing program at Building Bridges. They’ve been working hard to get individuals in to stable housing and sometimes a bed or a couch is really helpful. I’d like to encourage you to reach out to them if you are able and see if they have needs for furniture or other household donations. Here is the website: https://redwoodcommunityservices.org/homelessservices

Oh my goodness when I went to Lucky for the grocery pick up I was surprised by 10 huge boxes of hand sanitizer to distribute. I took some to the Ukiah Senior Center, Hope Ministries, Building Bridges and the Ukiah Food Bank. 

I started to roll out the Homeless trash program. I found someone to assist me with the map. I created a couple of care packages with some snacks and bags and brought them to a couple of camp sites and I did get one bag of trash on my first day. Next steps are to figure out a funding source for the transfer station fees, get volunteers and do out reach to the homeless service providers to get the word out to the streets. 


Did you know that Mendocino County has its own YouTube page where you can watch live streaming meetings or the replay at your convenience: 
Coastal Permit Administrator: https://youtu.be/0HqyuEn1OpY
Archeological Committee: https://youtu.be/FE5SiWmtwMo
^ Here are some of the meetings from this week. 

I took a walk in the beautiful sunshine with my granddaughter while listening to the COC Meeting.  
They discussed the update to the Homeless Strategic Plan, Coordinated entry and the Point in Time Count as well as whether or not a safe parking proposal should be brought forward. You can watch the video here: 

I like to end these posts by reminding you that I meet on Zoom every Thursday morning at 7:15a. The Meeting ID is 7079548230 and the password is LOCAL707, that is a great place to come and have me ask your questions. I am of course also happy to have coffee or a phone call. My number is 707-391-3664 feel free to text me to schedule an appointment. 

2022 Weekly Update #2 - January 11, 2022

Hi! I’m Mo Mulheren, your Second District Supervisor. Each week I put out an email and blog about some of the things I’ve been working on during the week. If you are interested in learning more you are always welcome to call me at 707-391-3664 or email me at [email protected] . I also have a Zoom meeting each Thursday at 7:15a-7:45a the Meeting ID is 7079548230 and the password is LOCAL707. I’m always happy to chat about whatever is on your mind. 

At this month’s Second District Meeting with the City of Ukiah we discussed how the vaccination and testing mandates have fiscal impacts on the cities, the monthly calls with the City Managers offices from each of the four cities and the Executive Office are ongoing and successful and the City Manager focus group about the Strategic Plan was also a great opportunity for collaboration. The City and the County planning departments need to be working together to meet our housing needs. Mayor Brown said he’d be happy to work on picking up homeless trash as we start our new program. The City, UPD, Probation and MCSO are all working together to come up with a coordinated effort to combat graffiti. There are multiple possibilities for funding repairs of City streets that will be coming to the City Council soon. There are a few plans for improving the flow of the new streetscape and the updated hours of the City owned Parking lots have been successful. For more information about the City of Ukiah please make sure to follow the official City of Ukiah Facebook page or visit their website.

Are you wondering what kind of questions people call me with? This week I did constituent support regarding cannabis, housing, a family member with substance abuse issues, illegal dumping collection, and more housing issues including trying to seek information from the Millcreek Apartments going in near the Truck Stop and questions about Live Oak. 

I attended a webinar about Talent Development 
In order to accelerate development that we should include the following percentages:
70% learn by doing or on the job training
20% on coaching 
10% outside development and education 
After the pandemic its important to remember that:
Transition has been difficult for new hires 
Remote work is a challenge for human interactions 
Expansion of training opportunities 
Meeting people where they are with their abilities to work remotely, or in some cases not 
“Stay Interviews” at each anniversary (this sounds great and something we should implement)

MTA is continuing to have ongoing staffing issues, if it continues some routes may need to be reduced. If you know anyone looking for a job please encourage them to apply! https://mendocinotransit.org

I attended a webinar offered by CALAFCO called The Property Tax Elements of Jurisdictional Changes and Fiscal Reviews. They discussed the challenges of not having updated tax rolls to collect property taxes especially when an annexation occurs and how important it is for LAFCO boards to track and follow the work of County Tax Collectors and Auditors. It was very interesting. 

I had a couple of additional meetings for the CEO/CAO Ad Hoc as well as the Mental Health Data Ad Hoc and hope that those will both be coming forward as agenda items in the very near future. 

I spent Tuesday morning cleaning up trash and making calls about getting the homeless trash program started. Next step is to develop a map and get it out in the community. The expense at the transfer station was actually less than what I thought it was going to be but there is still more data to collect regarding time spent and costs. More to come on this! 

There are a lot of different things I do day to day. That’s one of the best parts of serving your community in this role. Please know that you should contact me if you have questions, if I don’t have the answers I can direct you or try to find them for you. Thanks for reading! Have a great day!

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.

Every Thursday morning I start my day with something I call Coffee and Conversation. This is an opportunity to talk about whatever is on your mind. Sometimes no one comes sometimes 10 people come and we talk about everything from Cannabis to Mental Health, Homelessness, Economic Development and housing. Bring your thoughts! Every Thursday morning 7:15am - 7:45 am on Zoom. Meeting ID 7079548230 Password LOCAL707 

This week I took a tour with Danielle at the United Disaster Relief of Northern California new facility on Airport Park Boulevard in Ukiah. They provide support for fire victims, the pandemic and other disasters. They serve the entire County from their new headquarters in Ukiah and it would be great to see if we can find a way to create some sustainable funding in addition to the grants they receive. If you would like to make a donation you can mail it to NCO their fiscal sponsor: https://www.ncoinc.org/fs/united-disaster-relief/

This year I am working on streamlining this update. I hope you enjoy and have a great day!
