Starting July 19th Deputy Daniel Avina will join the staff out at the river Sheriff's sub station to focus on the homeless issues we have been experiencing. Deputy Avina will work with residents and businesses in the lower river area, addressing the myriad of issues relating to homeless encampments including problems with loitering and drinking downtown.” The Guerneville Community Alliance volunteers spearheaded an effort to get a dedicated deputy in the lower river area to exclusively address issues surrounding the homeless.

Can you wash a car without wasting water and harming the environment? The answer is Yes, if you plan ahead and understand that everything that’s been stuck to your car—gasoline, oil, heavy metal particles, tar, and particulate matter from exhaust fumes—has the potential to flow from your wash area to the nearest storm drain and eventually reach the Russian River.

Tourism is what supports this Russian River community we all love and call home. Like it or not, the reality is without it there would be no town. It’s what allows all of us to live here in this beautiful place. We bear the difficulties of winter together, and try and help each other make it through them, so we can enjoy the summer alongside our welcome guests who support our resort town lifestyle on the river. Most of us feel a great sense of gratitude for being able to live here, but rarely thank a dish washer or the owner of the restaurant they work at for keeping the doors open so we can.

As the weather improves and the winter shelter has closed once again, the homeless have been handed tents and sleeping bags to go out and trespass in the woods and set up illegal camps, instead of being directed to seek legal shelter elsewhere. With these camps come massive amounts of trash and human waste that pollute our river, as well as the very real danger of escaped camp fires, of which there were eight last year perMonte Rio Fire Chief Steve Baxman.
