Stanislaus County supervisors OK health services contracts

Stanislaus County supervisors approve service contractors, guidelines for murals.

BOARD OF SUPERVISORS WATCH

The Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors took the following actions Tuesday:

• Approved 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.
• Created guidelines for evaluating applications for murals in county parks. The 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. The county will consider applications from artists for murals with nature, landscape or agricultural themes.
• Approved spending $185,444 in public facility fees for park equipment and improvements at Modesto Reservoir, Woodward Reservoir and Laird Park. The items 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.
