First, some announcements:
A few notes:
Finally, the past few years has seen leadership of our Police and Fire Departments within the region through training, mutual aid and our collaboration with our neighboring jurisdictions. The emergence of the influence of our staff within the region has become a hallmark of the pride and professionalism with pulses through our organization. I have learned that it really is all about the “people” of the organization who extend our reputation. I cannot adequately express the feeling of being at a meeting when someone from another agency tells me they are “working with” someone from our team on a very meaningful project or effort which advances the profession.
As one of the smallest agencies, I will profess that it is tough living within the limited resources. The adage of having to do “so much with so little” gives me even more motivation when I see our staff giving the extra effort to keep up with our neighboring jurisdiction which have resources beyond our comprehension. It means we are working hard!
Hard work is one of the character traits which defines Winters. Our agricultural roots help establish the benchmark for accepting the effort it takes to achieve the excellence which is embodied and permeates through the Winters community. Our kids are champions on the playing fields, classroom and FFA, our environmental projects make salmon spawn in our creek, we produce the best food in the world, we are the home to a world class vocational training academy with the PG&E Gas Safety facility and our City Staff are second to none in the professional fields. Our Downtown is best in the region and people want to be here because of an incredible vibe. None of this just happens. It really comes down to a culture of hard work and commitment to being the best.
Really proud of some of our recent achievements and how we set the bar for other communities. Small yet mighty!
No Friday Update next week.
Have a good weekend and go Warriors Soccer in the North Section Soccer Championships!
Strategic Planning Workshops Postponed- Stay tuned!
The previously scheduled community workshops on strategic planning, community facility, etc are postponed pending the development of a new calendar. We have 22 people on our “must attend” list and unfortunately the schedules with many of our other regional evening commitments and meetings has developed many conflicts.
We are working a revamp of the schedule, so stay tuned for a new schedule.
Some quick points from the week:
First, the items on this weeks City Council Agenda:
February 5, 2019
Now the notes:
We are in full implementation mode of the Downtown Parking Master Plan. A couple key points:
Combined new spaces from both striping and the new parking lot will be somewhere near 68 spaces.
Getting ready for the Super Bowl. My recommendation is two growlers from Berryessa Brewing, including their new Couch Potato IPA. My prediction on the Super Bowl is to take the OVER on the parlay card and look for Tom Brady to get ring #6- Patriots 36 Rams 21
Have a safe weekend.
This report was commissioned by the Yolo County Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo) in its role as leader
of the Shared Services Initiative in Yolo County, in order to determine a method of providing animal service in a
manner that maintains positive outcomes while controlling costs. This report consists of two components. The first
portion of the study, completed by the UC Davis Koret Shelter Medicine Program (KSMP), makes determinations
regarding the animal services programming and staffing levels necessary to successfully meet legal and public
expectations, provide humane care, maintain positive outcomes, and reduce or control public costs. The second
portion of this study, completed by Yolo County LAFCo, projects the costs for various potential models of animal
services in Yolo County, based on the staffing and programming levels recommended by KSMP.
A quick update on the many initiatives and projects I have on my desk:
A quick status on some key projects coming soon:
Have a nice weekend.
A couple items as I return from two weeks out of the office!
Some hot items on my plate as the City Manager:
Finally, the ambush and murder of Davis Police Officer Natalie Corona is a staggering reminder of the dangerous world we live in and the risks our law enforcement personnel take on a daily basis. Just a senseless incident, taking a young officer who had her life and career in front of her mostly before it ever began. At the memorial service today, Winters was represented by our Police Chief John Miller, Sergeant Jose Hermosillo, Officer Alan Pinette, Department Chaplain Robert Duvall, K9 Kepi and our the entire Police Cadet group. I saw them before they left and could not think of a more appropriate group to represent our town. I was immensely proud and honored by them.
Winters Police Personnel were also on patrol in Davis during the memorial and procession for Officer Corona to her hometown of Arbuckle.
The threats to our law enforcement grow daily. California is a State with a dichotomy of interests which make it very difficult to be a police officer. Laws, initiatives and interests challenge and work to redefine the entire field of law enforcement almost daily. In today’s world, police have become the social workers of the streets, dealing with the many folks bitten by mental and emotional health issues previously dealt with through a broader dealing legal system. At the same time, legislation and initiatives have decriminalized and legalized certain offenses and behaviors which many in society do not completely understand. When you add in various levels of media and political sentiment towards law enforcement, its tough!
Yet, it is these same individuals who keep our communities safe, protecting us from those who do harm or the first we will call when we have a major issue. They are the ones who enter some of the most dangerous situations in the name of service and duty. They confront the worst in our society while consoling those in their most dire moments. In Winters, I have witnessed some of the most incredible moments of compassion from the Winters Police Department to help those in need. Heroism comes in many forms, sometimes in the physical but probably most often in the emotional and support to those who are most affected.
As I watched today’s memorial I was gratified that they focused on the hope and enthusiasm that Officer Corona brought to her job as a Davis Police Officer. Hopefully there are people who can take motivation from Natalie Corona who will step up to fill her career destiny for her. She was immensely proud to be a police officer! Without question, her memory will live forever in the hearts of her colleagues and family. Being in law enforcement is unquestionably one of the most challenging and honorable professions. I personally am honored to work with these men and women and am grateful for their service. Hopefully people will light a candle tonight for Officer Natalie Corona.
