Supervisors Receive Quarterly Updates on Operational Priorities

Tuesday, Madera County management provided a quarterly update to the Madera County Board of Supervisors on the eight priorities chosen at the 2017 Management Workshop. The priorities are Mission/Vision/Values, Intergovernmental Relations, Public Safety, Water Resources, Road Maintenance, Marketing and Tree Mortality.

Each group has shown progress over the last quarter, which can be viewed at the link provided. Highlights include, collaborating with community partners to coordinate homelessness efforts, applications for about $5 million to help comply with the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) and the development of a comprehensive Pavement Management System that will be brought to the board in the coming months. 

Supervisors also received an update on the efforts of the Public Information Team (PIT) whose goals are to share the Madera County story, increase transparency and inform the public on local government processes. Madera County’s online presence has grown exponentially, provides up-to-date information and highlights Madera County’s 125th Anniversary. 

Tree mortality is a critical public safety concern that the supervisors have dealt with for more than two years. Progress over the last quarter includes seedling distribution,  a Local Hazard Tree Mortality Grant that would allow the county to access the California Disaster Assistance Act funds to complete projects along county right-of-ways, and completing a proposal request to consider contracting with a Tree Mortality Operator, maximizing opportunities and reducing costs. 

The Madera County Board of supervisors will host a Management Workshop, open to the public, on April 4 and 5 at The Pines Resort in Bass Lake, where they plan to build off these priorities and develop a strategic plan to reflect the needs of Madera County communities in an effort to support the recently adopted mission (“Creating a countywide Culture of Excellence through dedicated public service”) and vision (“Always excelling as a trusted local government”) statements.
