Whew. After one week of deliberations, the Board of Supervisors has ratified the county’s 2018-19 operating and capital budget, totalling $1.68 billion. Looking toward the future with the hope of rebuilding our County after last fall’s horrific fire, we approved a strategic budget that will help us ride out our current storm while also preparing for challenges we anticipate and expect in the future.

he Sonoma County Agriculture and Open Space District does, which is one of the reasons why it, under the guidance of the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors, offers a matching grant program that enables nonprofits and public agencies, including the county’s nine cities, to apply for funding for community and urban open space projects. Over the history of the matching grant program, the Ag & Open Space District has provided more than $33 million in funding.

We’re diving into a process to give rural communities a greater voice. We are beginning a community conversation about Municipal Advisory Councils (MACs) and other forms of rural self-representation. This conversation kicked off last weekend for the Lower Russian River area, where we held our first meeting. The meeting provided the community an opportunity to learn what a MAC is, what it isn’t, and how individuals can become more involved.
