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.

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

  1. SOUNDS more like Cuba than America, You cant tell people where they can haul their water, on a personal or contract basis. neither the state or anybody else has that right, only if the water was stolen would it be in question
