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.

The Special Board meeting is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. Meetings are livestreamed and available for viewing online on the Mendocino County YouTube page, at https://www.youtube.com/mendocinocountyvideo or by toll-free, telephonic livestream at 888-544-8306.

The California Highway Patrol’s Northern Division, which has jurisdiction over the major transportation corridor United States 101 in Northern California, recently conducted a Major Corridor Enhanced Primary Collision Factor, or PCF, enforcement campaign.

The enhanced enforcement detail took place from 6 a.m. through 6 p.m. on Tuesday, July 20.

During that time, CHP – Northern Division focused enforcement on the US 101 corridor in Mendocino, Humboldt and Del Norte counties, which includes the Ukiah, Garberville, Humboldt, and Crescent City Area offices. The Northern Division Commercial Enforcement Unit also participated in the campaign.

A total of 138 citations were issued, of which 120 were for unsafe speed.

The remaining citations were issued for distracted driving, unsafe lane changes, unsafe turning, and seatbelt violations.

The area offices also reported issuing 30 verbal or written warnings, and made three arrests, including driving under the influence, drug possession, and possession of a stolen vehicle.

Although this enhanced enforcement detail has concluded on US 101, the CHP will conduct additional enhanced enforcement details along the US 101 corridor at various times and locations throughout the year.

The CHP said the public should continue to practice safe driving habits anytime they get behind the wheel.

The agency reminded motorists to follow these basic traffic safety rules: always wear a seat belt, drive at a speed safe for conditions, eliminate distractions while driving and always designate a sober driver.
