The State of California has approved Phase II consolidated debris removal operations for properties impacted by the 2021 Hopkins Fire. In order for properties to be eligible for the  State debris removal program,  the  County of  Mendocino must receive completed  Right-of-Entry (ROE) permits by no later than December 17, 2021. The contract for debris removal has been awarded, but the start of work is now being delayed by the lack of complete ROEs submitted by the original deadline. Phase II work cannot begin until complete ROEs have been received by the County.

  • Mailing or delivering them to the PRRM Division at: 501 Low Gap Road, Room 1010, Ukiah, CA 95482
  • Faxing them to (707)-463-5649

I like to think of myself as a journalist for the everyman. Journalism has become a craft practiced largely by the urban elite. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at if you know a story that needs to be told.
