Weekly Update #42, Oct 19,2021

Posted on October 19, 2021 at 11:20 PM Comments comments (198)
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!

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!!

Weekly Update #40. October 5, 2021

Posted on October 5, 2021 at 11:05 PM Comments comments (504)
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.
UVFD annexation of the City of Ukiah. 
RECOMMENDATION 1) Find the Ukiah Valley Fire District Municipal Service Review and Sphere of Influence Update and UVFD Fire Services Annexation and Fire District Sphere Amendment (File No. A-2021-02) exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to Public Resources Code §21065 and Title 14 of the California Code of Regulations §15306, §15378(a), §15061(b)(3), 15261, 15301, and 15320 and approve the Notice of Exemption for filing; APPROVED

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

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.

Weekly Update #37 - September 14, 2021

It's Tuesday! Here's what I've been up to this week. Feel free to email me at [email protected] or text me at (707) 391-3664 to make an appointment. Have a great week!

 

Wednesday:

I dropped in and listed to the HHSA Board meeting. As a friendly reminder I am looking for board member. Here is the link to what the HHSA advisory board does. https://www.mendocinocounty.org/government/health-human-services-agency/hhsa-advisory-board

In the afternoon I attended the Building Bridges B2 Council of all of the agencies and providers that work with B2. This includes UPD and the City of Ukiah. Staffing has been a challenge but they are currently recruiting for more staff. The construction project also has challenges because they have not been able to hire staff that can keep that project (along with all of their other projects) going but they did thank the City staff for working with them to try to move it forward as quickly as possible. As a reminder there is a community clean up on the Second Saturday of each month so that supportive community members can come work with guests and staff to make sure the neighborhood is being kept clean. 

 

Thursday:

Every Thursday I have a meeting I call "Coffee and Conversation" we had some conversations about the Blue Zones Project and the Broadband Council of Mendocino County. I'm very excited about Blue Zones. I think the healthier our community is the better we all are. You know what they say a pound of prevention..... 

I'm concerned that the Broadband project is going to be very expensive and will take a long time to get any level of improved function. Please don't forget to use the Broadband Test website. The data will help better inform our problem and hopefully get us more resources. https://www.mendocinocounty.org/government/executive-office/information-services/speed-test

I was able to join the meeting of the Inland Housing Action Team. This is a group of interested stake holders and community members that want to have more housing in Inland Mendocino County. They are looking for more people to join and would like to take their conference they were going to have to make it virtual. This would be a conference with one meeting for renters and one for landlords. I discussed with them the work I'm trying to do to connect the developer of the new project on Feedlot Lane with future applicants. We also discussed the proposed Bella Vista project south of town across from the Ukiah Valley Athletic Club. 

I had an EDFC Board of Directors Meeting. They are doing a good job of getting loans out and reporting back the results. So far the team of three seems to be working out. 

 

Friday: 

As you know the Agenda comes out on Thursdays. A lot of my time on Fridays is spent reviewing each item, noting the number of attachments so I can make sure that I've read everything. I'm still working with the Clerk of the Board Staff to work with Granicus to make sure that all of the attachments including the Agenda Summary Report are readily visible to everyone. The majority of the information you need to understand an agenda item is in fact in the ASR. It often leads to miscommunication when people for instance review a slide show presentation without the content from ASR. 

 

Saturday:

On Saturday morning I picked up coffee and donuts and headed to the little pocket park on Perkins Street to hold the Hometown Heroes Reunion. about 9-10 folks showed up to socially distance to talk about their service in the military and their role in the community now. We decided that we like the morning meeting on 9/11 and that will be our new tradition. So save the date next year and watch for Ukiah Hometown Heroes on Facebook. Don’t forget they will be up until November 11, so take a stroll down Perkins and check it out.

In the afternoon I worked on a display honoring the 13 US Soldiers that passed away in Afghanistan. 

 

Sunday:

On Sunday morning I went to Zumba and then worked on getting my line dancing certificate. Yes, line dancing. I'm going to start teaching Country Fusion line dancing at Young for Life. This isn't technically Supervisor related but I think that reminding people that fitness and health are good for our community and help our mental health. So stay tuned for Country Fusion and Family Zumba with The Mo You Know. https://www.facebook.com/groups/4345407202233730/

As you know on Sunday afternoon the Hopkins fire started in Calpella. I spent the afternoon and evening engaging with County and State Staff and residents regarding the fire. I’m sorry for those that lost their homes and pets, grateful we didn’t lose any lives.

 

Monday:

Monday during our LAFCO Board meeting Josh Metz mentioned that a truck that normally delivers milk to make ice cream is now delivering water from Ukiah to Fort Bragg, isn't that “sweet”. Supervisor McGourty said that the water being hauled "is a puddle" in terms of municipal water use so people should not be concerned about the amount of water being sent over the hill. We all need to keep conserving and supporting each other.

During the meeting we also discussed and approved the Covelo Updated MSR/SOI and had the introduction of the Ukiah Valley Fire Authority MSR/SOI update to incorporate the City of Ukiah within the Ukiah Valley Fire District. 

I had an overlapping meeting with the NCRA. The NCRA is in the final months of its wind down before it becomes the Great Redwood Trail Board. There are still many hoops to jump through but the NCRA Board is committed to moving us forward. 

I had a lunch meeting at Ford Street to discuss the results of the  first year of the Drug Medi-Cal Pilot. We talked about the myth busting that needs to happen in the community, and the efforts that Ukiah Recovery Center has faced over the last year. I will be asking more questions about Substance Abuse Treatment in our community on my Facebook page. So please make sure you engage or go ahead and call or email me anytime to give me your feedback. 

I had an afternoon of Cannabis Referendum discussions. 

 

 

Tuesday: 

I received an interesting interview today that I wanted to share with you:

MendoLatino conversa con la Dra. María Amelia Viteri sobre género, sexualidad, raza, etnicidad y migración. La importancia de reconocer la diversidad de las personas a la hora de desarrollar políticas públicas y de salud. Esta entrevista fue grabada el 9 de septiembre de 2021 y fue puesta en el aire el lunes 13 de septiembre en KZYX&Z.

MendoLatino interviews Maria Amelia Viteri, PhD about gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity and migration. And about the importance of recognizing diversity when it is time to develop public and health policies. The interview was recorded on Sept 9, 2021 and aired on Monday Sept 13th in KZYX&Z

Weekly Update #36 - 9/7/21

Posted on September 8, 2021 at 8:05 PM Comments comments (437)
Wednesday
It’s that time of the year for the Hometown Heroes banners to go up. This was a project I worked on with Former Police Chief Chris Dewey. When we were speaking about our struggles recruiting qualified police officers we were talking about how some kids may chose a military career after high school and if we could get them to come back and work as law enforcement officers that would be great because they know the community. About a dozen people had tagged me in a post about Windsor’s banners honoring their military personnel so they Chief and I figured out a plan to bring the banner program to Ukiah. If you haven’t visited the website here is the link. http://ukiahhometownheroes.org We are going to have a small reunion on Saturday so the folks honored on the banners can get together and anyone interested in adding a banner can join us to find out more. We will meet at 8:30a-9:30a in the pocket park on Perkins and then take a walk on Perkins to check out the banners. 
On the first Wednesday of the month I meet with the City Managers office and Council member Brown to discuss issues that affect the City and County. Of course Covid and the potential vaccine mandate were hot topics. We also discussed the Grand Jury reports around housing and homelessness. If you’d like to read those you can see them here: https://www.mendocinocounty.org/government/grand-jury/2019-2020-reports
I had a call with a gentleman that’s trying to do a project on the South end of Ukiah and worried about the Airport Land Use Commission. It’s nice to be able to be a sounding board to folks that want to make improvements to our community. 
I attended the Ukiah Library needs assessment meeting. The Friends of the Ukiah Library paid for a needs assessment to come up with a plan for the Ukiah branch library. The building is owned by the City of Ukiah and they lease it for a $1. There are many variables but most important is that this gets included in the larger County facilities assessment to determine if there are better alternatives. 
At the City of Ukiah City Council meeting they awarded this years slurry seal bid, updated the ambulance fees, and agreed to purchase an ice rink for the seasonal event Downtown instead of renting a rink. 

Thursday
Every Thursday morning I host an only Zoom meeting I call “Coffee and Conversation” this is an opportunity to come and talk to me about whatever is on your mind. Just open Zoom and use Meeting ID 7079548230 and Password LOCAL707
I completed my first Leadership course through CSAC. I will be attending one meeting per month to receive my certification. 
I had a meeting with a local restaurant about the vaccine mandate. Although the Board does not put the Public Health Orders in to place its important to hear how the community feels. 
Meeting with County Counsel and Supervisor Haschak about Grand Jury - Reports and Responses for housing and homelessness. See the link above. 

Friday
Started Friday morning with a meeting with MCSO about Alert and Warning. This fire season got off to a rocky start without consistent alert and warning for various fires. It’s important that everyone go to MendocinoSheriff.Com and scroll down to alert and warning and update their Everbridge and Nixle accounts. This will help you get accurate notifications in future fires. 
I had a meeting at Mendocino College about their need for an emergency evacuation route. I’m glad that local agencies, neighborhoods and businesses are taking preparedness seriously. More to come. 
I sat down with Jacque Williams at the Ford Street Project. It’s very important that our local residents have access to Substance Abuse Treatment. We will probably never have quick enough access for some folks but we can do much better as a County. If you’ve ever known an addict that has had to wait weeks to get in to treatment you know the odds of losing them back to the streets or in to their addiction. 

Saturday
My favorite realtor and her lovely assistant took me to look at a house. If there ever was an elected that knows the struggle of housing in our area I’m your girl. We need to stop the NIMBYism and work together with developers to add more opportunities for housing. 

Sunday
My daughter wasn’t feeling well so we stayed home. I got up on emails. So far we’ve gotten over 100 emails about the proposed vaccine mandate and over 100 emails about repealing the CCAO 

Monday
On Monday I attended the Inland Mendocino Democratic Club Virtual meeting. We heard from Congressman Huffman, Senator McGuire and Assemblymember Wood. When it was my turn to give an update I realized that in 9 months we have come a long way. It’s hard to remember that when you’re caught in the weeds and the weeks seem to go by so fast. I’ll try to write up a recap for you all or do a video. 


Tuesday
RRWA/RWQCB - daily acts, prescription take back needs to go all over the County will need to rely on more local initiatives, drought messaging and coordination needs to happen for all of the projects. 

I totally missed Tuesday publishing. Well now you know what I’ve been up to over the last week. Don’t forget I’m happy to schedule a call or a Zoom meeting. 707-391-3664. [email protected]

Weekly Update #35 - 8/31/21

Posted on September 1, 2021 at 12:00 AM Comments comments (472)

You know the drill! Every Tuesday night I put out my weekly recap of what I've been working on. Hope you had a great week!

 

Wednesday

On Wednesday I had an internal Grand Jury Homeless meeting with Haschak and County Team to prepare a response. Have you read the Grand Jury report on homelessness. What were your thoughts? https://www.mendocinocounty.org/home/showpublisheddocument/45045/637647272874430000

 

Wednesday was also a Behavioral Health Advisory Board meeting. I want to draw your attention to this important item.

From the team:

Mental Health Services Act 2020 - 2023 Three-Year Plan Annual Update for Fiscal Year 2021-2022

Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to seeing you there!

 

 

 

I met with Redwood Taxi. The owners are Andrew and Mike and they wanted to sit down and talk about how they could help meet the additional needs of the community.

 

I had an MTA Board of Directors meeting. Thankfully they have finally been able to hire some people. They are training and they hope to be able to add busses to better be able to support schools in the very near future. Also Jacob, the Executive Director said that he is working with the City of Ukiah about a possible transit center so I look forward to hearing more about that.

 

Ted and I had a MCAFD and BOS Meeting regarding funds to fire departments. They were given direction to bring back a plan for the wildland fire fighting needs.

 

 

Thursday

Of course on Thursday morning I had a Coffee and Conversation meeting. If you would like to join please log in to Zoom with Meeting ID 7079548230 and Password LOCAL707

 

I had the opportunity to meet with Judy Morris the new Deputy CEO. We discussed her former career as a Supervisor and some of the needs of Mendo including disaster preparedness, cannabis and lack of housing.

 

Ted and I had a BOS Ad Hoc meeting with County and RQMC staff regarding Mental Health Data. We have one more meeting planned and then I hope we will be able to bring the item back to the public through a community meeting and then to take it to the full Board.

 

I had a conversation with some constituents about the challenges with planning and building. I am going to work with Ted as they are in the 5th District to try and help resolve their issues.

 

I had a meeting with a few of the folks that led the referendum signature gathering to repeal the Commercial Cannabis Ordinance. We discussed why they didn't like the ordinance and I told them why I had been in favor of many of the changes. I continue to believe that the Board got to some compromises with the ordinance but unfortunately they do not see it that way.

 

I had the privilege to volunteer for the Leadership Mendocino Orientation. I was technically in the last class which was before/during Covid. I had always thought I didn't need to take Leadership Mendocino because I grew up in Mendo and had traveled all over. In case you haven't had the opportunity yet this is really a beneficial program for anyone that is interested in developing their leadership skills and learning more about the entire county its economy, its people, its history.

 

 

Friday

On Friday I was running around doing prep for the Ukiah Streetscape Celebration. My granddaughter Teagan (7 months pictured above) helped me deliver historical story boards to the businesses in the Downtown.

 

Saturday

On Saturday I started the morning by installing 130 balloons throughout the downtown in honor of the Streetscape celebration. The rest of the day was filled with looking at classic cars, checking out sidewalk sales, the City of Ukiah brought down heavy equipment, and in addition to the historic story boards there were signs about the completion of the project. The day climaxed with the ribbon cutting at noon where the Director of Public Works declared that even though the planter boxes were very nice they were not for RV parking (a joke about an rv that had been high centered on a planter the week before.) The project is not quite complete, the traffic signals still need to be installed so that traffic can flow at maximum efficiency. it was a pain while the construction was ongoing but it turned out beautifully.

 

Sunday

On Sunday I spent the afternoon meeting with some folks from the first district regarding PG&E funds and cannabis. Often when people are passionate they send emails or letters that can be misinterpreted so I felt it was best to sit face to face to have these important conversations.

 

Monday

I met with Supervisor Haschak and County Staff regarding the Grand Jury report on Housing and what our response would be. What are your thoughts on housing in Mendocino County. https://www.mendocinocounty.org/home/showpublisheddocument/44459/637622856639330000

 

I attended my first First 5 Mendocino as an alternate. They provide a lot of services for families with young children. I will share more as it comes up but for now please take a look at their website. http://www.mendochildren.org/#

My statement regarding the vaccine mandate for indoor dining.

"I realize that Dr Coren is the Public Health advisor I just want to be clear that businesses should not be the public health police. If you are choosing to move forward with this order it should be made very clear to the businesses what their expectations are for verification and which businesses are affected. Our small businesses are specifically targeted because they are honest and trying to support public health and the economy. This doesn't take in to consideration the people that refuse to cooperate with the contact tracing. Instead of placing this restriction on businesses public health should be encouraging testing and masking while indoors at restaurants and bars. I realize that large cities have been able to implement this policy but placing Mendocino County businesses in this position while surrounding counties have not adopted this policy puts our local residents and their businesses at risk of not being able to survive this roller coaster. I'm not in favor of deviating from the CDPH and CDC guidelines, it creates confusion amongst the public. "

September to October is the high season for TOT on the coast.

Policy Recommendations: Consider subsidy for long haul water cost to the coast. Consider TOT allocation to fund program. Monitor use pattern and adjust policy going forward.

Gjerde - recommends we have anyone that receives subsidy commit to expanding storage capacity for future uses

Williams - define where the TOT funds have been received and where they go (over the last decade) and bring back report within 30 days

Rau - only have one qualified hauler that has responded

Haschak - will go to the Willits City Council to see if they can possibly provide water as it will be closer than Ukiah. Stated that Laytonville has offered water as well which is surprising considering that they had a call to action regarding repealing the cannabis ordinance due to lack of water.

McGourty motion commercial at 80% subsidy and domestic at 100% subsidy. Review in 2 weeks. Subsidy is for the long haul.

This item is about code enforcement related to water hauling regarding illegal cannabis cultivation

Burkes - staffing up with code enforcement and trying to implement board direction on cannabis code enforcement

Sheriff Kendall - MCSO doesn't have a lot of capacity for enforcement and not much capacity in the law

Williams - Business licenses for selling and hauling water require log, this is where the teeth might be

Mulheren - include cannabis permit in the log to prevent conflict between haulers and cultivators

- Back to the ad hoc: limit water to daylight hours, create a log for water hauling and selling.

Require a business license for hauling and selling. Require the local cannabis permit number.

Don't micromanage livestock operators, prohibit hauling to unpermitted cannabis operations.

Also look in to private wells and what they can do during drought emergency

Hey! It’s The Mo You Know, and its Tuesday! Here is my weekly update. This is not a comprehensive list of all of the meetings that I attend but a summary so that you can contact me if you are interested in a particular subject. I have a regular zoom meeting every Thursday from 7:15-7:45a that you are welcome to join: Meeting ID 7079548230 Password LOCAL707  My email is [email protected] and my cell phone is 707-391-3664

Wednesday
On Wednesday morning I went to a Fire Safe Council Demonstration on Lake Ridge Road. They are working with the Hopland Band of Pomo Indians to offer a program to create defensible space for Seniors and Disabled Individuals. They have the videos they are creating on their website.  https://firesafemendocino.org/defensible-space-assistance-program/
I also attended my first Department Head Meeting. We talked about ways to make the Agenda more user friendly. Unfortunately the way that the Granicus system on the website that Agenda Summary does not show easily on the agenda. A lot of the pertinent information for an agenda item is in the Agenda Summary such as the history of the item and the budget implications. The Clerk of the Board Staff is working with Granicus to get a new tab labeled “Agenda packet” that will put the whole agenda in sequential order and make it much easier to read all of the documents while still having tabs that folks interested in a specific item could review. 
We are also looking at ways to increase recruitment and retention of County employees.  I’m working on a slideshow that can be played on the TVs in the hallway at 501 as well as during breaks of the Supe meetings. 
I also had a meeting about possible mental health outcome data. A lot of community members want to learn more about the progress of mental health services in our community. You can see some things on the County website for Measure B but there is more to do. 
The Russian River Confluence Working Group had a meeting about procedures and contract obligations and expectations. More to come on this one. And if anyone in Mendocino County is interested in participating please call me! 
I also had a meeting with some folks about the Cannabis Sunset Zones. We all know that the cannabis ordinance isn’t working out as planned. There are a lot of question marks about what happens next. 

Thursday
Of course we had a regular Coffee and Conversation meeting. We talked about employee recruitment and retention. How do you think the County can improve attraction to potential employees? 
Mendocino Business and Government Leaders Meeting - PSPS for this week should be over, 6 fires are burning across McGuire's District, we are in a drought. Rancho hospitals at capacity and the system is getting stressed. 35 people in our hospital, 3 out of County. County trying to increase capacity by finding alternate ways to help mentally ill patients. If businesses need to get tests they can go to testing.covid19.ca.gov and select Antigen + PCR Binax Now. CDPH just issued new event guidelines. 
The budget is a concern for the MSWA. Mendo Recycle is a valuable program to our communities but the constantly changing regulations and Covid issues have caused some budget concerns. The ad hoc is trying to work on solutions. 
I listened in to the Equity Grant Workshop for Cannabis. Please if you know anyone in the industry that is unable to afford the permitting process please tell them to reach out to https://elevateimpactmendo.com/ to see if they can help. 

Friday
I attended the DFC Coalition Meeting. The Youth are working on their next mural and a plan to bring the banning of whippits to the City Council. Did you see the article? https://www.ukiahdailyjournal.com/2021/08/22/efforts-to-ban-whippets/
I listened in on the State Water Board Curtailment Workshop And had a meeting with the Chief of the Ukiah Vally Fire Authority about EMS and the recent study that the City of Ukiah purchased. Unfortunately its not yet complete but might still provide valuable information for a potential JPA 


Saturday
On Saturday I attended the Women's Right to Vote Celebration at the Kelley House. I delivered four proclamations on behalf of the Board of Supervisors. One for Women’s History Month and the 101 Anniversary of the Women’s Right to Vote. One for Juneteenth and for African American/Black History Month. It was a beautiful day and a safe outdoor event. I’m very grateful I could attend. 


Sunday
On Sunday afternoon I had a meeting about Mental Health issues within a family. I heard from a parent about the challenges of dealing with an adult child in the mental health system. I hope to be able to share more of her ideas with you soon, when she is ready. 
I also attended a community opening of the Solar Living Institute. I reminisced about the controversy of the trees growing through the cars. I remember being in junior high or high school. I just don’t remember why people were so upset about it. 


Monday
And on Monday in addition to various other tasks I listened in to the State Redistricting Input meeting for the North Coast.

Weekly Update #33 August 17, 2021

Wednesday
On Wednesday I went to my first in person CSAC Conference. This was the end of the "New Supervisors Institute. I guess I'm not allowed to say I'm new anymore! I'm looking forward to being engaged and active in the CSAC programs and networking with other elected officials across the State. We know that these relationships are critical for rural communities to make sure that we get the most out of our limited funds. 

Thursday
I sat on a CSAC Panel on leading during a pandemic with Supervisor Williams, CEO Angelo, Assistant CEO Angle and Social Services Director Emery. One of the most important things that I have learned from the pandemic is that we all have to lead together and provide as much information to our residents as possible. Its very interesting when you go back and look at your work in retrospect. I'm grateful to Supervisor Williams for allowing me to work with him on the Covid response. We are not done. Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) | Mendocino County, CA

Friday
I listened virtually to the CSAC meeting on Homelessness. There will be more Project Homekey money in the future and I asked the question on social media if there are people that have opinions about what kind of homeless housing would be a great opportunity for Mendocino County? What kind of population would you want to target first? Would there be codes of conduct or expectations? What locations would be appropriate whether that be a vacant lot or an existing building? 

Saturday
Ok check it off my "To-Do" list. I have now officially visited Bowling Ball Beach! It really is beautiful and such a "Mendo Thing to Do" 

Sunday
Of course on Sunday I was working on my Agenda prep but before that I took a run at Lake Mendocino and it was way too hot and smoky. Make sure you take care of yourself and stay inside if you can while the weather is rough. I'll take my own advice next time.  
Sunday night was the last night of Sunday's in the Park. It was a little different with wearing masks and not having a dance floor, instead people were instructed to dance with their social bubbles. I'm grateful that Mendocino County Public Health was on site to provide testing and vaccines for anyone that wanted them. I believe they did at least 15 vaccines. The easier we can make it for people to get vaccinated and tested the better! 

Monday
On Monday I had my Strategic Plan Meeting with the consultants. I was surprised at how much the subject of the culture of the agency came up. I really think its impartitive that the Board of Supervisors step up in to a leadership role and make sure that the team understands that we certainly are providing policy direction but we are also working along side them.  
I just happened to listen in to the MCOG Meeting. Most County related meetings can be found on YouTube at Mendocino County Video. If you love meetings like me you might enjoy it! 
I attended the VOAD Meeting. The main topics were assessing the need for  getting drinking water to residents that need it, how to get help to the victims of the Oak Fire and being prepared for PSPS

Covid: See summary, Hospital nearing capacity for ability to handle Covid patients. Mendocino County has a total of 18% available ICU beds across the whole County. Judson Howe from Adventist Health spoke about the peak capacity of Covid in our hospital system. Our hospital staff is fatigued. 85% of admissions are unvaccinated. Surgical cases have been restricted. Mr Howe encourages our community to please reconsider your thoughts on the vaccine to ease the strain on the hospital and the danger of having to delay surgeries for other individuals. Dr Coren says that there are more symptomatic children with Covid than in previous spikes. Vaccines are improving with 4,000 given in the last two weeks. Beyond the PH sites you can get the vaccine from your doctor or private pharmacies. Multiple agencies require vaccination status or submit to weekly testing. AH has about 95% vaccinated rate amongst doctors, and about 70-75% before mandate and that end date is the end of September. Vaccines offered at doctor appointments as well as in the Emergency Room if people are leaving.
