Posted on May 8, 2023 at 4:25 PM

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 read about some of the topics that I work on, as always reach out if you have additional questions.



March 1, 2023


I have a regular meeting with the Mayor and City Manager for the City of Ukiah the first Wednesday of the month. Topics vary based on need, if you have questions let me know or visit the City of Ukiah website.


The CSAC Rural Caucus meeting focused on water availability throughout the State and the concerns about dam removal during a time when water storage would seem a necessity for water security.


I met with the City of Ukiah Human Resources Director to discuss the MSWMA Personnel.


LAFCO Agenda Review with the Executive Director. I chair several boards which often means discussing upcoming agendas with the Directors. Adding this as information as to the work that County Supervisors due in the month.


I had a meeting with the Mendocino Cannabis Director and Chief Planner about the LJGAP Grant to receive an update.


When members of the Board bring an item forward there is often staff coordination, in order to bring my cannabis tax item forward I worked with several departments and on March 1st I had a meeting with Chamise Cubbison and Cheyanne Gordon to talk about the process of bringing the item forward and the workload impact on the department.




March 2, 2023


At the regularly scheduled Emergency Medical Care Committee Meeting – Discussion regarding the presentation that was made to the BOS for continued funding for the $1,000,000 in PG&E Funding for the start up of an ambulance JPA. Fire Districts are calling for the completion of the JPA however there isn’t a position at the County that is currently working full time on this project so they are getting through it as quickly as they can. Director Emery is working with the LMSA and using the AP Triton study to try and get to a resolution.


Coastal Valley EMS updates about policies. Still working with Calfire and Coastal Valley to complete the CAD Project, just need to finalize the contract.


The Tax Sharing Ad Hoc had a meeting with the City representatives, negotiations about a Master Tax Sharing Agreement are currently ongoing and we meet at least monthly and sometimes multiple times a month.



March 3, 2023


While MSWMA has been without a Director I have been doing more direct work with the staff, including signing checks etc.


Special BHAB meeting to discuss Mental Health Services Act Funding Priorities. The Boards inputs of funding priorities included transportation, Tribal Government, homelessness, Behavioral Health Court, Collaboration, Education & Training, Rapid Re-Housing, Children’s & Youth Services, Evidece-based services, community coordination, communication, critical incident debriefing, re-entry program, active shooter response, dual diagnosis, etc.


At the monthly Parks Ad Hoc meeting we discussed the upcoming fees update, an online reservation system, the Parks Matrix, Clean California Local Grant Program, partnering with Visit Mendocino on marketing, and an update on the Low Gap Trail Maintenance by the Ukiah Valley Trail Group, the Mill Creek Park Per Capita Grant, Bower Park Updates and the Indian Creek Caretaker.



March 5, 2023

March 6, 2023

March 13, 2023


I had a meeting re Organic Waste Recycling Methods/Processes with General Services. I was provided with the worksheet that showed how much more time was anticipated to implement the organic waste recycling program. The information provided showed the expense for the containers and the custodians very clearly and I agree that $11,214 for containers is reasonable. However, I don’t think that we need to add an additional 30 minutes per day to do this task, if it takes that long I think we should figure out a way to balance other items in the workload in order to accomplish the mixed waste task, adding $100,000+ for the budget annually seems unnecessary. The Directive can be cleared and the expense will be discussed during the Budget approval process.


Discussion re new courthouse with Janelle Rau, Steve Dunicliff, Shannon Riley from the City of Ukiah and Kim Turner from the Courts. We set up a regular meeting so that we (the County, can plan strategically for when the Courthouse relocates, and the City of Ukiah is interested in being an active participant due to the changes that will occur Downtown.)

Submitted a grant application for the Carl Moyer Program for Air Quality for $200,000. There were several adjustments to the salary classifications for the Sheriff’s Office, Payroll and Nursing to encourage more applicants and staff retention. $4.5 million in funds for corrective/preventative road maintenance in the Philo and Elk area.
