Greetings! With students returning to school, and the scent of pumpkin spice everywhere you turn, we know summer is coming to an end and autumn is right around the corner.

 St. Joseph Vessel Removed
 From The River
A year after the vacated St. Joseph shrimp vessel was mysteriously cut from the dock and left to float dangerously down river, it was finally towed from Stan's Marina to a salvage yard. Removing this vessel took the combined efforts of many individuals, governmental agencies and local businesses. To watch a video of its removal  click here.

The mission of the Yolo County Day Reporting Center is to provide individualized, supportive and comprehensive re-entry programs that will stabilize clients, reduce recidivism and promote positive re-entry experiences.

Port of West Sacramento 
secures a $272,000 Grant
As Chair of the Port of West Sacramento, I am pleased to announce that a grant application to State Parks (Boating and Waterways) was approved in the amount of $272,000.00 in early August. This grant funds the Lake Washington derelict vessel clean-up project which eliminates unsafe boating conditions, and provides an opportunity to expand recreational activities.

Cache Creek Resources Management Plan Receives Merit Award
Yolo County's Cache Creek Resources Management Plan is a creek restoration plan that eliminates in-channel commercial mining and establishes a policy and regulatory framework for seven important elements: covering agriculture, aggregate resources, riparian and wildlife resources, water resources, floodway and channel stability, open space and recreation, and the cultural landscape. I am pleased to announce that on September 11, 2018, I received an email from CSAC indicating that our outstanding program was being honored with a Merit Award.
