Mendocino County’s 2nd District Supervisor Mo Mulheren [Picture provided Mo herself]

Here is what I’ve been up to this week. Please remember I am just one person of 5 so my agenda summary is in my own words and NOT official record.

Wednesday
BHAB – The BHAB Board had an update from RCS about the Crisis Response. Reviewed the May RQMC Dashboard and an update on the Annual Plan for Mental Health Services. I’m working with Supervisor Williams to update the dashboards to show more/different metrics. What are your thoughts? You can find the data dashboards on my Facebook page
The MTA continues to come up with new strategies to hire drivers to get back to a full schedule. If you know someone that loves to drive please let them now to apply: Mendocino Transit Authority (MTA) | Public transportation for Mendocino County, California : MTA Careers
The Ukiah Senior Center had to temporarily suspend some activities due to Covid cases but everyone has been tested and is back to the fun! 

Thursday
On Thursday morning Assemblyman Jim Wood joined my Coffee and Conversation meeting we discussed the idea of trying to move home hardening and prevention so that it’s year round. CalFire has been spending so much time on fire disasters its necessary to have a full time agency that is working on prevention. There is a Bill to do the middle mile of Broadband and service providers can do the final mile to the houses. He discussed that during the drought commercial fishing is challenging with Salmon not being able to make it down to the ocean and with the planned drought curtailments there may be lawsuits so there are no easy answers to the drought.
I met with Captain Greg VanPatten about the vehicle allocations and replacement program for the Sheriff’s Office. It would be great to have either a vehicle number or dollar amount that we are identifying in the budget for annual replacements. The Captain is going to work with Janelle Rau from General Services.
In the afternoon I met with Bekkie Emery the new director of Social Services. Although the official title is new Bekkie has been with the department her whole working career. I’m very interested in the programs that they workin on including children and adult services and helping people get back on their feet with cash aid or food stamps. These programs are constantly changing from the State and we have to make sure the County and are partners are all up to speed. You will see posts on my page about services that the County can help with including the CalFresh program which you can use at the Mendocino County Farmers Markets. https://mcfarm.org/ebtfood-stamps
I also met with Jim Donnley the Ag Commissioner to discuss the programs and roles and responsibilities of the Ag office.

Friday
I had a meeting in the morning with Elise from Sonoma County Supervisor Lynda Hopkins office about the Russian River Confluence: just starting, need data, used to promote the recreational use of the river. This program slowed in 2017 and is just now picking up. Here is the website for reference. Let me know if you are interested in participating. http://russianriverconfluence.org/

Saturday
Agenda prep!

Sunday
Agenda Prep and Sunday’s in the Park. Only one more concert left August 15th 6p at Todd Grove Park

Monday
I met with Ukiah Veccinios en Acción. I usually go to their monthly meeting but this was a more focused meeting on how they can help the County. They are a volunteer organization so all of the money goes directly in to the community. They’ve identified need and potential projects in the community. They have received a grant from the Community Foundation of Mendocino County to build a website that will be able to support our Spanish speaking community to access business information, jobs postings, etc. They started originally in Ukiah and have now done more outreach and have members all over the County. I look forward to working with them on future projects!
I also had several meetings about the cannabis industry and what happens next. The portal is officially open and I hope people use it to submit their applications so we can get some more folks through the licensed system.
In the afternoon I attended a meeting of the VOAD (Volunteer Organizations Active in Disasters) and the OES Coordinator about distributing drinking water County wide should there be an available supply. I’m glad they are being proactive and creating a strategy.

The Board would like the Sheriff to chose one of the four but if not the recommendation is for Mannin & Kass, Ellrod, Ramierz, Trester, LLP
There were four items that the Sheriff believes are in conflict. 1. Is there a conflict in the budget or staffing of IT – the Board does not believe a conflict exists. 2. Regarding the consolidation of the Sheriff IT with the County IT per the Grand Jury Report the Board is in agreement that any decision will be delayed until there can be an Attorney General Decision and that the Sheriff should have independent Counsel to submit his request. 3. May the Sheriff spend at will without having to come to the Board? This does not include emergency expenses. The Board sees that the Sheriff and the County Budget team have worked together to come up with an almost balance budget just off $255,000. We agree that if he believes he can spend at will outside of emergency and the budget that he should have a legal opinion that also states that. The Board does not agree that the budget is off by $1.5 million
