Notes from your District 2 Supervisor- January 5, 2021:
Jan 5 2020 BOS Meeting
Greetings from your new District 2 Supervisor. I wanted to get some quick information out about today’s meeting. The Board approved a contract with Self Help Enterprises to administer a $500,000 housing grant that will assist first time home buyers and provide assistance in housing rehabilitation. This is a state sponsored grant and will not have any impact on county budget. For more information please contact Ben Goger, Mariposa County Housing Development Specialist at 966-3222. Ben will be working with the Area 12 Agency on Aging and Habitat for Humanity of Mariposa County as well, to get the word out. Since this contract was just approved it might be a while before this is fully up and running. The appointment of Merlin Jones as District 2 Planning Commissioner was not approved by the board. We still need to find a person to fill this position. I encourage any interested party to contact the Planning Department at 966-5151 for an application or go to the Planning Department website at this link https://www.mariposacounty.org/80/Planning Health and Human Services announced the formation of a traveling coronavirus testing team. The good news is that testing will be available at the Coulterville Community Center on Sundays starting January 17th from 0700-1900. Look for further information at the HHSA website at this link. https://www.mariposacounty.org/1829/Health-and-Human-Services Health and Human Services also announced that they will be accepting pre-registration for coronavirus vaccinations. They did not know at present when vaccines will be available for the general public but will be providing this information at their website when they know. The county is in the process of preparing its legislative platform for the upcoming year. This information outlines what policies are important to us. It will be shared with state and federal elected officials as well as our citizenry. For more information please contact the County Administrative Official (CAO), Dallin Kimble at 966-3222.
If you have any questions for concerns about these items or anything related to county government please feel free to call me at 209 966-3222 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org My goal is provide regular updates on this website to help keep our district residents informed of BOS and county government activities. Agendas for upcoming board meetings are available on the BOS website the Thursday before the next meeting and minutes of past meetings are usually available within two weeks after the meetings. January 5, 16:15 As an additional note, my plan is to make this my primary internet based source of communications. I do not participate in social media as the level of discourse is often uncivil or overly negative. We have more than enough of that in our society at present.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Other place you may consider. CRV glass, cans, and motor oil to Cal Sierra on Camage Road in Sonora. Cardboard and mixed recyclables go there, too. Metal to R&S Metals in Sonora. Place in Modesto that takes styrofoam, but it is limited to a certain density of foam which makes it a little difficult to characterize. The transfer station in Sonora takes electronic waste, including TV's, batteries, too. I believe there may be a nominal gate fee there. There is a dumpster at the Greeley Hill Community Hall and also at the True Value Hardware in Greeley Hill.
