Board of supervisors watch
The Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors will hold a special closed-door meeting at 5:30 p.m. today to discuss negotiations with labor groups. The board’s regular public meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the basement chamber of Tenth Street Place, 1010 10th St., Modesto. The following items will be considered:• Agreements with service providers for county Behavioral Health and Recovery Services and the Health Services Agency. In the budget year starting July 1, the county expects to spend $32.9 million on service contracts for mental health and recovery programs and about $12.8 million on contracts for health services.
• Guidelines for evaluating applications for murals in county parks. The review policy was developed after an individual asked the county Parks and Recreation Commission in April 2012 about a possible mural for Parklawn Park in south Modesto. If the guidelines are approved, the county will consider applications from artists for murals with nature, landscape or agricultural themes.
• Approval to spend $185,444 in public facility fees for park equipment and improvements at Modesto Reservoir, Woodward Reservoir and Laird Park. The items would include $72,000 for fencing at Laird Park near Grayson, $58,943 for restrooms at Modesto and Woodward reservoirs, and $54,501 for hot coal receptacles, a fuel pump and bins at Modesto Reservoir.
