Week of 01/22/24

My Recent Activities

This week was a Yuba County Board of Supervisors Meeting.  A few highlights from the agenda include Board of Supervisor Committee Appointments for 2024 and a board workshop (at 1 pm) to receive an update on the Yuba County Strategic Plan.  My committee assignments are generally the same as 2023, except that I will no longer serve on Yuba LAFCO.  You can see my assignments here and the assignments for the full board here.  You will find the Yuba County strategic plan and the presentation from the workshop here.
There was also a Wheatland City Council meeting on Tuesday night (agenda) that I attended

Additional meetings on my calendar this week included: speaking with other local supervisors at a Yuba-Sutter Bar Association luncheon, a discussion with SACOG about Beale AFB, A San Joaquin Join Powers Authority board meeting in Sacramento, and a Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) Mega Region Working Group Meeting (agenda).  At the SACOG Megan Region Working Group meeting we talked about tolling lanes across the 16-county Mega Region and received updates on the Mega Region Dozen; 12 important projects for improving connectivity between the Bay Area, the Sacramento Region, and San Joaquin County.  Two of the projects in our region are Valley Rail and the Yolo 80 project.


Looking ahead to this week

As this week contains the fifth Tuesday of the month, there is neither a regular Board of Supervisors Meeting nor a Yuba Water Agency Board meeting.  However, we do have a Special Board of Supervisors meeting related to property negotiations (agenda).  I also have several board and committee meetings on my calendar, including a SACOG Transportation Committee Meeting (agenda) and a Yuba Sutter Economic Development Corporation (YSEDC) board of directors meeting.

Additional meetings on my calendar include meeting with a constituent to talk about Yuba Water Agency, an agenda review for the SACOG transportation committee, an agenda review for the Yuba Water Agency, a Yuba Water Chair/Vice-Chair breakfast, and a community input meeting for the Regionally Coordinated Homelessness Action Plan.

Tuesday evening is the Yuba Sutter Candidate Forum at the Yuba County Government Center.  The forum will feature candidates in contested races for Yuba County Supervisor, Sutter County Supervisor, and Yuba Water Agency.
