Board Watch

The Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors today is scheduled to:

  • Hold a public hearing to consider the adoption of the annual performance evaluation for the Community Development Block Grant Program. The county is part of a consortium including the cities of Oakdale, Patterson, Newman and Waterford, which received $2.65 million in federal funds. The report discusses how the funds have been spent.
  • Consider a wireless Internet access policy for the Stanislaus County library system. The policy would spell out rules of conduct for using an Internet wireless system at any of the county's 13 branch libraries. The wireless system would be operational by Dec. 31.
  • On consent calendar.

  • Consider plans and specifications for a water well and water filtration system project at Woodward Reservoir. The $600,000 project is designed to make Woodward Reservoir a clean water supply. The water supply is under a boiled water order issued by the State Water Resource Board after repeated water tests showed contamination.
  • On consent calendar.

  • Consider extending the lease at the Fink Road landfill to Nov. 3, 2009. The farm lease is with the current tenant, Lent-Burden Farming Inc. The extended lease would bring in an additional $276,000, with an option of farming more land that would add $4,567 a month to the income. The money would be placed in the Fink Road Landfill Enterprise Account. On consent calendar.
  • The Board of Supervisors will meet today at 9 a.m. in the basement chambers of Tenth Street Place, 1010 10th St.
