Good Afternoon YCFSC Stakeholders,
We had a good meeting yesterday (September 28th) and are grateful to Chief Rebecca Ramirez for serving as YCFSC Chair this past year, and who was re-elected yesterday for a second year. A warm welcome to Jonathan Flora from Capay Valley, who will be serving as our new Vice Chair. These positions are for one year.
Below is some information to note, along with a long list of useful links and contacts that were posted in the chat yesterday.
Please note that our October meeting will be held as usual on the 4th Wednesday (10/26) but our November meeting will be the 3rd Wednesday of that month: 11/16.
Great news regarding AB 1717: Yesterday, the Governor vetoed this bill which would have changed the definition of services requiring prevailing wage under “public works,” to include fuel reduction work paid for in whole or in part by public funds performed as part of a fire mitigation project. Many different groups communicated to Sacramento how grievously this could impact our community fuel reduction efforts.
