Week of 10/09/23

My Recent Activities

This week was a Board of Supervisors Meeting.  The agenda is light but we received the  Quarterly Development Update from the Community Development and Service Departments.   Additional meetings on my calendar included an update on service from Bi-County Ambulance,  a meeting about legislative changes impacting Sutter Yuba Behavioral Health, a meeting about Hard Rock, and a meeting with a few constituents.  I also attended a West Water Forum about water needs and water markets.

Other events participated in include the Plumas Lake Community Walking Moai on Monday morning, a Beale Fire Department parade on base, the annual Yuba County Employee BBQ,   the Rio Del Oro Harvest Festival, the OPUD 75th Anniversary Celebration, and the Plumas Lake Oktoberfest & Safety Fair.

Looking ahead to this week

This week is a Yuba Water Agency Board Meeting and you can find the agenda here.  I have a SACOG Board of Directors meeting this week (agenda).  It will be at the La Famillia Mapa Neighborhood Center in south Sacramento and followed by a board tour of the neighborhood.   There is an OPUD board meeting this week and you will find the agenda here.  Unfortunately, I’ll be unable to attend due to a conflict, which is also the case with NACo Rural Action Caucus, NACo West Region, and NACo Telecommunications and Technology Committee meetings this week.

Additional meetings on my calendar include:  a meeting with the North Valley Rail team about emergency evacuation from east Plumas Lake, a Yuba Water Agency board development workshop, a webinar hosted by the CPUC on rail safety, a Northern California Water Association Executive Committee (NWCA) meeting, a California State Association of Counties (CSAC) Intergovernmental Relations Platform Review Meeting, and a Yuba Sutter Economic Development Corporation (YSEDC) Executive Committee Meeting,

Community-related events I plan to attend or participate in this week include the Plumas Lake Community Walking Moai on Monday morning (new time 7am at Eufay Wood), the Northern California Water Association (NCWA) Sac Valley Celebration on Thursday evening, a Yuba Sutter Chamber State of Beale Breakfast, the 4th Annual Plumas Lake Halloween Parade, and Pinktober at Hard Rock.


Some important announcements:

  • I’ll be having a “Coffee Meet & Greet” with 2 Talls Sweet Treat Bus on Saturday, October 28th from 8 am to 10 am at the south parking lot at Eufay Wood Park in Plumas Lake.  Mark your calendar for an opportunity to grab your morning coffee from a local business and talk with me about what’s on your mind.
