The next Valley Fire Long-Term Recovery Task Force meeting will be held Tuesday, May 3, 2016 at 6:00 PM. The location of the meeting is the Cobb Elementary School located at 15895 Highway 175 in Middletown, CA. It is open to all members of the public.
Lake County Administrative Officer, Carol Huchingson recently reported that the task force meetings will be suspended after the May meeting. “Right now the best thing the County can do to keep the recovery moving forward is allow staff to concentrate on their work responsibilities.”
Huchingson added, “County staff is not just occupied with recovery matters, but also must continue to perform their job duties that existed before the Valley Fire. We need to give them time to get their heavy workloads completed.”
In an effort to help fire survivors continue to have access to the appropriate task force members, an information sheet with contact information will be distributed at the meeting, and will then subsequently be posted at www.LakeCountyRecovers.com.
The public may also attend the Lake County Board of Supervisors’ meetings on Tuesday mornings to hear updates on the recovery response and provide public input. The dates and times of recovery reports can be determined by checking the Board agendas at www.co.lake.ca.us or the posted agendas at the Lake County Courthouse at 255 N. Forbes Street in Lakeport. Recovery reports will not be made at every Board meeting.
If the public is unable to attend the Tuesday morning meetings, they can be live streamed atwww.co.lake.ca.us/Government/Boards/Board_of_Supervisors/calendar.htm. Channel 8, Lake County’s Public, Education and Government (PEG) television channel, also provides live coverage of the meeting for those who have cable service.
