Posted on August 18, 2022 at 12:30 AM

Hi, I’m Mo Mulheren the Second District Supervisor for the County of Mendocino.

 

 

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.

 

 

July 1, 2022 – At our monthly MCAFD meeting we discussed the proposed Fire Sales Tax Measure, the ambulance JPA process, funding and SB443, discussion about the tracking of permits to Fire Districts from Planning and Building and better coordination between the districts and P&B.

 

 

July 6, 2022 – At the beginning of each month I meet with the City of Ukiah Mayor, City Manager and Deputy City Manager to discuss any issues that affect the County and the City of Ukiah in overlap. The City is currently embarking on several large streets projects including Dora Avenue reconstruction, a major slurry seal (coming in August) and community meetings regarding the Orr Street Bridge. You can read more about that project and provide feedback here: http://cityofukiah.com/orr-street-bridge-and-corridor-study/

 

 

I attended the Dept Head Meeting to hear an update re Planning & Building. They’ve been working to hire more staff and streamline processes. The Bella Vista housing development should be coming to the Planning Commission at the end of summer or this fall. Julia Krog our new Director of Planning and Building is working on providing more information to the public regarding ADU and funding opportunities you can find it on their webpage: https://www.mendocinocounty.org/government/planning-building-services

 

 

July 7, 2022 –I attended a Re-entry stakeholder meeting at the Grace Hudson Museum. This meeting was attended by the Inmate Services Staff, Public Defenders, Judge Pekin, New Life Health and Ukiah Recovery Center as well as someone from Social Services. The discussion was about an inmate that was seeking release from the Mendocino County Jail into a treatment program. The group discussed the best options moving forward and what could potentially be done for an inmate in this particular situation. This is an important exercise in collaboration between all the people that are involved in our justice system to try and achieve the best outcomes for incarcerated individuals.

 

 

I had a meeting with the new Director of the Boys and Girls Club, Kim Mercer. It was nice to have an update on the programming that the Ukiah Boys and Girls Club offers and brainstorm ways to get more attendance. My oldest daughter went to Boys and Girls Club when she was five and learned a lot of relationship building and had a safe place to be while I was working. If you would like to learn more about the Ukiah Boys and Girls Club, please visit their website: https://www.ukiahbgc.org/

 

 

I attended a County Parks meeting with Janelle Rau and Travis Scott from Visit Mendocino to discuss the marketing campaign they have been doing to help Parks and the Museum and to discuss what other options they can provide to assist the County with. We are talking about a collaboration with signage at the parks when they unveil their new branding and logo early next year. They will also continue to send out e-blasts as needed.

 

 

July 8, 2022 - Supervisor Gjerde and I met one more time to discuss bringing forward an agreement about how to fund future water projects if we were not going to bring it to the voters. We were unable to come to an agreement and both submitted separate memos. You can see mine here: https://mendocino.legistar.com/LegislationDetail.aspx?ID=5719621&GUID=CC85D2C2-08A0-4898-95DD-35DB053435D3&Options=&Search=

Otherwise here is the action and motion that were voted on.

 

The Commission will continue the Public Hearing and consider a Municipal Service Review (MSR) and Sphere of Influence (SOI) establishment study as required by LAFCo law. The final report includes written determinations on the level and scope of services provided by County Service Area No. 3 (CSA 3). RECOMMENDED ACTIONS: 1) Find the County Service Area No. 3 Municipal Service Review and Sphere of Influence Study is exempt from CEQA pursuant to 14 CCR §15061(b)(1) & (2), §15306, §15301(c), and §15269(b) & (c) and approve the Notice of Exemption for filing; and 2) Adopt LAFCo Resolution 2021-22-17, approving the County Service Area No. 3 Municipal Service Review and Sphere of Influence Study and establishing a Service Specific Sphere of Influence for CSA 3 that is limited to the future Sherwood Firewise Community Zone of Benefit for road maintenance of emergency access routes and designating an Area of Interest for the Ukiah Eastern Hills, Fire Service Gaps, and Water Service Gaps Study Areas.

 

The motion passed unanimously.

 

 

I had a meeting with Sean White to talk about the City of Ukiah Water Resources and future projects so that I can be updated on where the City is with water.
