This week was a Yuba County Board of Supervisors meeting. The agenda
wasn’t t too long and included appointments of residents to committees, pedestrian and parking access improvements at the Health & Human Services facility, efforts to address homelessness, a public hearing on YCSO’s interaction with ICE, several budget change requests, and a presentation from Yuba County Public Works on the drainage program, and other items.
Additional meetings on my calendar this week included a special OPUD
meeting about regional wastewater, an OPUD park committee meeting
to speak in favor of a series of community events, a Wheatland City Council meeting
, an agenda review meeting for Yuba Water Agency, a LAFCO meeting
to discuss the return of a portion of the horseshoe levee to RD817 from RD2103, a Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) meeting on travel model/travel forecasting, a SACOG Land Use and Natural Resources (LUNR) Committee
meeting, and a meeting with Hard Rock and Regional Housing Authority to talk about the Affordable Housing project in Plumas Lake. I also visited Beale AFB to renew my base access and attended a lunch meeting with Supervisor Fuhrer, MJUSD Superintendent Fal Asrani, and MJUSD board president Randy Davis.
There were several Northern California Water Association (NCWA) meetings on my calendar this week, including a bi-weekly dry year task force meeting, a bi-monthly board of directors meeting, and the all-day annual meeting in Chico.
On Saturday, I served on a panel with Sacramento County Supervisor Patrick Kennedy at the SACOG Youth Leadership Academy. The group comprises high school students across the six-county region, including Yuba County. We answered questions about transit, climate change, regional planning, and the uniqueness of our individual jurisdictions.
