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 MulherenM@MendocinoCounty.Org and my cell phone is 707-391-3664

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
