Storm Preparedness Information

Storm Preparedness Information

With the continuation of this year’s March miracle and strong storms forecast through Tuesday, additional releases are being made from local lakes and reservoirs to accommodate run-off and snow melt.  These releases are already resulting in visibly higher rivers and elevated river gauges.  Some gauges may reach and go above the “Monitor Stage”.  Residents are advised that the “Monitor Stage” is not unusual in these conditions and is well below the “Flood Stage”.

Still, the Yolo County Office of Emergency Services encourages residents to take caution with increased precipitation, rising rivers and streams, high winds and localized flooding.  Public works crews throughout Yolo County are on standby to handle storm related problems.  Motorists are advised to avoid flooded streets and to be on the lookout for debris on the roads resulting from strong winds and run off.

Mental Health Service Act Community Planning in March

Mental Health Service Act Community Planning in March

The community is invited to attend the Yolo County Mental Health Service Act Quarterly Stakeholder Meeting on March 1 to kick-off the community planning process for fiscal year 2016-17, and additional community input meetings on March 9.  

The Mental Health Services Act (known as MHSA or Proposition 63, and passed by California voters in 2004) places a 1% tax on personal income in excess of $1 million.  This tax revenue is directed specifically to improving mental health treatment.  The funds are distributed to California counties with the goal of transforming the public mental health system into one that is consumer- and family-driven, accessible to underserved populations, oriented toward the principles of recovery, culturally aware and which provides appropriate services.
