Week of 09/25/23

My Recent Activities

This week was a Yuba County Board of Supervisors meeting and the agenda was fairly light.  We received a presentation on the Fiscal Year 2022-23 Annual Report from Measure K Citizens’ Oversight Committee.  You can find the report here and a link to the video here (starting at 4:00).

Additional meetings on my calendar included a Nothern California Water Association (NCWA) Conservation Task Force meeting, a “Coffee Caucus” information-sharing session with several of my supervisor colleagues from around the State, an agenda review for the SACOG Land Use & Natural Resources Committee, an agenda review for Yuba Water Agency, a SACOG Mega Region Working group meeting with supervisors and councilmembers from the Sacramento area & the Bay Area, and a tour of the PG&E Gas Safety Academy in Winters, a meeting with residents to discuss challenges in the river bottoms near Gray’s Beach, and a planning meeting for the Oktoberfest / Safety Fair coming up on October 14th.   This week was also a Wheatland City Council meeting and you can find the agenda here.

I led a Plumas Lake Community Walking Moai on Monday morning.  Additional community-related events that I participated in include  Bridging Hope – a Walk for Suicide Awareness and Prevention, the National Pumpkin Weigh-Off, and the Yuba-Sutter Brewfest.

Looking ahead to this week

This week is a Yuba Water Agency Board of Directors meeting and you can find the agenda here.  Additional meetings on my calendar include a discussion about how to improve safe access to the river bottoms, a Yuba LAFCo board meeting (agenda), a meeting with Placer County Supervisor Shanti Landon to discuss the East Wheatland Expressway, a SACOG Land Use and Natural Resources Committee meeting (agenda), and a Yuba Water Agency chair/vice-chair breakfast.  Three Rivers Levee Improvement Authority (TRLIA) and South Yuba Transportation Improvement Authority (SYTIA) meetings scheduled for this week were cancelled.

Other events I plan to participate in include the Plumas Lake Community Walking Moai on Monday morning and the annual Yuba Water Agency Employee BBQ.  On Tuesday Morning, I have the honor to speak to the Early Risers Kiwanis about all the great things going on in south Yuba County.
