NORTH COAST, Calif. — On Tuesday, Aug. 24, the Mendocino County Board of Supervisors will conduct a special meeting regarding the critical water shortage emergency in the town of Mendocino.

Water experts will be present to speak with the board about the extreme water shortage in the 5th District heightened by this severe, historic drought.

The agenda will feature discussion and possible action including direction to staff to allocate budget for drought assistance and other immediate funding opportunities.

Ted Williams, Fifth District supervisor and vice-chair, wants to reiterate “Shit is getting real” in the town of Mendocino. Water is scarce and citizens are scrambling for solutions.

“It’s at times like this that we need to come together as a community to solve critical problems,” added Glenn McGourty, First District supervisor.
