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



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



October 1, 2022


I went to Willits to do a Clean-up in Brooktrails at Dogwood Terrace. There weren’t any large trailers, so I worked to haul out three pick up loads of bagged to the transfer station.



October 3, 2022


Meet with a constituent about upcoming cannabis agenda items. I don’t usually reference meeting with constituents, but I wanted to use this as a reminder that I am available to help navigate department concerns or questions if you need assistance.

Board of Supervisors Meeting


The Board of Supervisors received a report from the Behavioral Health and Recovery Services Regarding Status Report of Activities Related to the Mental Health Treatment Act Citizen's Oversight Committee Projects and Programs. The Measure B Committee has approved several projects with taxpayer dollars related to Mental Health including the Behavioral Health Regional Training Center, the Crisis Residential Treatment Facility, NAMI Mendocino has taken on the role of informing the community about Mental Health/Overdose and stigma reduction. Fort Bragg Crisis Respite: RCS was provided access to the new facility this last week. The RCS construction crew is underway on the remodeling of the office to create a place for the Crisis Respite Program, the Medication Support Program, the Crisis Outpatient Program and the Adult Mental Health Outpatient Program. Remodeling is expected to take approximately 8 to 12 weeks. The Mobile Crisis Response Team Pilot - Three full time staff responding seven days a week 8 am - 6:30 pm, Sunday-Wednesday 8 am – 8 pm. o FY 22-23 YTD Call Responses: 175 o Call responses September 2022: 37 Mental Health Treatment Act Audit - The audits for periods 7/1/2019 – 6/30/2020, 7/1/2020 – 6/30/2021, and 7/1/2021 – 6/30/2022 were completed. A copy was provided to the Measure B Committee and was also included in the Measure B June 22nd agenda materials. The Mendocino County Auditor-Controller is expected to attend the next Measure B meeting to provide an overview and explain the audit results. Psychiatric Health Facility – Nacht & Lewis, AECOM, and county staff have been meeting regularly on the demolition, design, construction, and programming requirements for the Psychiatric Health Facility at Whitmore Lane.


The Board voted unanimously to approve an agreement with Public Risk Innovations, Solutions and Management (PRISM) Joint Powers Association for membership in the PRISMHealth Program for the purpose of purchasing fully funded healthcare plans and membership in the PRISM Employee Benefits Program for the purpose of purchasing a self-funded dental program and other fully insured programs and insurances for employees and their eligible dependents, estimated to be $17,894,807 in calendar year 2023, effective January 1, 2023 through December 31, 2025; allow automatic annual renewals thereafter until such time as the Board directs the Chief Executive Officer or Designee to withdraw from the pool; and authorize Chair to sign same. This is a conversation that has gone back and forth with previous Boards and Unions over the years that the County had a self-funded Health Insurance Program. This change will help keep a consistent cost for both the employees and the County for Health Insurance.


Per Board Direction Planning and Building will bring forward recommendations regarding tiny homes in Mendocino County.
