On Tuesday, August 24, 2021, the Mendocino County Board of Supervisors will conduct a special meeting regarding the critical water shortage emergency in the town of Mendocino. Water experts will be present to speak with the Board about the extreme water shortage in the 5th District heightened by this severe, historic drought. The agenda will feature discussion and possible action including direction to staff to allocate budget for drought assistance and other immediate funding opportunities.

Ted Williams, 5th District Supervisor and Vice-Chair, wants to reiterate “Shit is getting real” in the town of Mendocino. Water is scarce and citizens are scrambling for solutions. “It’s at times like this that we need to come together as a community to solve critical problems,” added Glenn McGourty, 1st District Supervisor.

The Special Board meeting is scheduled to begin at 1:00 p.m. Meetings are live streamed and available for viewing online on the Mendocino County YouTube page, at https://www.youtube.com/mendocinocountyvideo or by toll-free, telephonic live stream at 888-544-8306.

  1. You literally live on the frigging Coast you stupid assholes build a desalination plant instead of focusing your tax dollars on lack of black people and homosexuals you retards

  2. I saw also that the UAE has been successful using drones for cloud seeding. Probably for the cost of this recall election we could set up a robust cloud seeding program

  3. The town that has virtually no actual residents, and is bought up by out of town money to fleece wealthy tourists (quite successfully, I’ll add) cannot pull it together? Not only is desalinization an option, but were it not for these wealthy anti-anything transplant hippies protesting anyone attempting to do *anything*, they long ago could have harmlessly tapped the upper estuary of Big River.

    So I ask my friends and neighbors on the Coast, who have to endlessly put up with these people: Who cares?
