Week of 06/03/24

My Recent Activities

Tuesday was a Yuba Water Agency Board of Directors meeting and the agenda contained an item I think the public will be interested in :

  • Approved revisions to the Community Impact Grant and Loan Program Policy including consideration to increase the annual maximum for Bill Shaw Rescue Equipment and Training grants from $10,000 to $20,000.

I had a SACOG Transportation Committee meeting this week and there are multiple items on the agenda I’m sure the public might be interested in including the Regional Carbon Reduction Program Funding Recommendations.  Yuba County applied for funding to design the Plumas Lake Regional Trail Network.  Unfortunately, the project didn’t score well enough to be recommended for funding, but we’ll try again in a future grant cycle.  After the committee meeting, we had a lunch-and-learn for the SACOG board on Transportation Funding in California.

Additional meetings on my calendar included a SACOG Transportation Committee Agenda review.  On Wednesday and Thursday, I attended the CalMatters Ideas Festival.

Community-related meetings and events I attended this week include a BMLC dinner to meet the commander of Air Combat Command.
