Weekly Update #9 - March 1, 2022

 

Hi I’m Mo Mulheren, the Second District Supervisor. Each week I issue a written report about some of the projects I’m working on and the meetings I attend. This is not a comprehensive list of my activities but meant to give you some ideas about topics that I am working on that might be of interest to you.

 

Meetings you might have missed on the Mendocino County Video YouTube page:

Local Jurisdiction Assistant Grant Program https://youtu.be/gHd-gix_9yg

Coastal Permit Administrator https://youtu.be/Ee1KPy_wr3o

MCP Weekly Public Meeting https://youtu.be/K42EwGH-PR0

Dr Coren Update https://youtu.be/7IP1DFY3VwM

 

On Wednesday morning I attended the Behavioral Health Advisory Board meeting where we had an update from the service providers and discussed the changes that CalAIM will be bringing to our mental health systems.

The MTA continues to try and seek grant funds to create an electric fleet as well as update solar array to be able to support more electric busses.

I was able to hop in to the Russian River Confluence meeting, I am trying to seek the appropriate tribal representatives to also attend these meetings. Here is the link to the website if you know someone please send them my way! http://russianriverconfluence.org/

 

On Thursday morning I missed my Coffee and Conversation meeting in order to attend the South Ukiah Rotary to discuss trash. We had a great conversation about new ways to get household trash illegal dumping cleaned up and I was able to tell them about my homeless trash program.

 

As part of the CEO/CAO conversation we discussed that the Board of Supervisors needs to have more direct involvement with the Department Heads so we had two days of employee evaluations.

Over the weekend I reviewed our agenda, helped my mom move out of her house and then both nights attended and taught line dance class at the SPACE dance party. SPACE (School for Performing Arts) had two full days of dance lessons and then an evening of social dance. My pre-teen even let me hang out with her a little. I love busy weekends and keep an eye out on my personal pages for updates on SPACE's efforts to bring social dance to our community.

 

I continue to monitor the Stepping Up Initiative and their efforts to break down silos and create a data base to share information about clients between jail, mental health and courts. Its very important that we set these community members up for success as they are released back out in to the public.

 

You may have noticed that there was an update about ecomment on the County website and how items are processed from Atlas our Clerk of the Board. You can create an account and upload your comments and documents yourself directly from our website. This will streamline efforts on behalf of County staff but also ensure that you can see for yourself that your documents and comments were entered in to the public record.

 

Hope to see you (virtually) Thursday at 7:15a - 7:45a Meeting ID 7079548230 Password LOCAL707

 

Have an amazing day!

 

As always this is not an official record but a summary of my notes on the Board Agenda.
