Friday Update: October 23, 2020

Friday update 10-23-2020

Whoot Whoot!!!! City Council selected a new City Manager at the city council meeting Tuesday night.  Our new City Manager, Kathleen Trepa will start on November 9, 2020.  You can read more about Kathleen here:   http://www.cityofwinters.org/city-of-winters-appoints-kathleen-salguero-trepa-as-city-manager/ .  We will be getting her email address set up in the next week or so, so we aren’t ready to start receiving emails for her at City Hall right now.  You all are stuck with me as City Manager for 2 more weeks.

I am excited about Kathleen joining us.   I have been doing double duty as both the Director of Financial Management and City Manager for the last 3 months, and I can honestly say, boy oh boy, that is a lot of stuff to work on at the same time.  I have worked with various county staff that I hadn’t worked with before and I have interacted with the other City Managers in Yolo County as a result of stepping into the interim position.  There are a lot of good people working throughout Yolo County as we try to navigate this pandemic driven world we live in right now.  I am sure that all the folks in Yolo County will welcome Kathleen and continue the great communication and working relationship that Yolo County agencies have developed.  They were all super welcoming to me when I stepped in after John’s departure, and I know they will be the same for Kathleen.  Kathleen will also be working with a super supportive City Council.  The City Council has been very patient with me as I have had questions to be sure I understood the priorities for the City Council as I have been working in the City Manager position.  While I have worked for the City for almost 24 years now, I haven’t had the pleasure of working so closely with the City Council until now.  This is a very dedicated group of people on our City Council, and making sure that we, Council and Staff, always strive to do what is the absolute best for everyone in our community is always their priority.

This week also included conversations about the Covid-19 pandemic and where we are with the Tier System.  We are still in the Red Tier, and the number of cases in Yolo County have increased.   The County issued new guidance on gatherings this last week.  I have heard a lot of “talk” about those guidelines, and I know that people aren’t happy with the new guidelines, especially with the holidays coming up.  It is disappointing that we have to worry about these things, but, we need our businesses to survive in order to keep people employed and families provided for.  I wish it was different, but, apparently it isn’t.  I don’t know the science, and I am not happy with the fact that we are still struggling to survive as a community due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting restrictions, but, again, I need to remind everyone that each person’s actions can impact the way our community will be allowed to interact with one another.  Masks are uncomfortable, and I don’t like wearing them, but, we are told we have to in order to go out and about and have our businesses open, so, I wear a mask.

The City has also been working with Yolo County on the Small Business Grant, and folks that applied for the program should begin getting information on grant awards next week, and those that were awarded grants should be getting checks the first week in November based on the latest information that I received.

The City and the Winters Downtown Business District Association is also working with Yolo County to secure some CARES Act funding.  We are close to an agreement with the County and then we will start the process of helping the community with the funding we get.

The City received a grant to do improvements in our parks, and Eric Lucero has come up with some really good ideas for how to improve both Blue Oak Park and Valley Oak Park that include items for younger children, older children, and for our Senior community.  We will be getting all the information to the State so that we can get the funds and get moving on the projects as soon as possible.

Just a little over a week before election day.  Don’t forget to vote, no matter what/who you vote for, your vote is your voice and it is important that you be heard.

City of Winters Appoints Kathleen Salguero Trepa as City Manager

Tags : 

CITY OF WINTERS APPOINTS KATHLEEN SALGUERO TREPA AS CITY MANAGER (pdf)

The City of Winters City Council, after a national recruitment conducted by Peckham & McKenney Inc., have selected Kathleen Salguero Trepa as their next City Manager.  Of 112 applicants from over 20 states, 6 candidates were invited to participate in interviews with the City’s leadership team, community panel, and the City Council.  The City Council approved an employment agreement and announced the appointment of Ms. Trepa during their October 20, 2020 City Council meeting.

Ms. Trepa comes to the City of Winters with nearly 25 years of experience in local government as well as six years in the private sector. Having recently served as Assistant City Manager with the City of Concord for over three years, she previously served the cities of Goleta, Claremont, San Marcos, and San Juan Capistrano, CA.  Kathleen received a Bachelor of Arts in History from Boston University, magna cum laude. Her experience covers a broad range of municipal government services including, but not limited to, finance, IT, HR and economic development.

Mayor Wade Cowan shared the excitement of the City Council in welcoming Kathleen to Winters. “We interviewed a lot of great city manager candidates and are impressed with Kathleen’s specific qualifications and leadership experience.  We are ready to have her join our dynamic community.”

Kathleen expressed her appreciation of the City Council’s selection.  “Thank you to the City Council for selecting me as their next City Manager. I am excited and honored to join the Winters’ team, and I look forward to getting to know the community and staff.”

Originally from a small town in New England, Kathleen is a conversational Spanish speaker.  She has two adult daughters; one works in the wine industry and the other is a second-grade teacher in Oregon.  She loves animals and will likely be seen around town with her rescue dog. In her free time, she enjoys spending time outdoors and is looking forward to exploring Putah Creek and the trails in the area.  Kathleen’s first day in Winters will be November 9, 2020.

Friday Update 10/16/2020

Friday Update 10-16-2020

Good Friday afternoon.  It has been a super busy week here at City Hall.  The biggest impact on my office this week was that the auditors that the City of Winters hires each year to audit our financial statements to be sure that they are accurate, spent the last 3 days here.   This is a yearly happening, but it just takes a lot of time to answer questions that are brought up.  Look for the CAFR (Comprehensive Annual Financial Report) at a January or February City Council meeting.  It will also be on the City of Winters website so that everyone can read it.  It contains a lot of interesting information each year, but, I understand, some people find it extremely boring.

I also met with our Sales tax consultant, and, guess what? Sales tax revenues are down from the prior year.  Not a surprise for anyone that visits our downtown.  Merchants have been closed or had to pivot from normal operations to whatever was allowed by the State and County guidelines due the Covid-19 pandemic, and then there is the whole Lake Berryessa shut down since the fire impacting the sales of gasoline too.

Talking about the reduction in business activity and sales tax revenues leads me to the following topic: Covid-19 impacts and what can be done to help our business community as well as our residential community.  City Staff spent time on Zoom with County Supervisor Saylor, CAO Patrick Blacklock, Mayor Cowan, Mayor Pro Tem Biasi, Chris Calvert from the Winters Chamber of Commerce, Chris Turkovich from the Winters Downtown Business District Association and others just this afternoon to discuss the ability to provide some relief from Covid impacts on both the business community and the residential community in the City of Winters.  Things that were discussed include:

  • We are still in the Red Tier and might be staying in that Tier for longer than originally anticipated, but the numbers will dictate that, so we wait for those results.
  • Gatherings of non-family members are happening, and from contract tracing, it appears the gatherings are the primary reason for spread of the virus, not patronizing our businesses.  Please be cautious about what you are doing, and don’t gather in groups outside your family.  Controlling the gatherings, therefore, controlling the spread, will help our neighbors with businesses survive this pandemic, allow them to hire back their employees and help those employees provide for their families. Each and everyone of us can help our community to survive this pandemic by our individual behavior.
  • Today Yolo County Announced Covid-19 Rental Assistance Grant Program.  If you know someone who could use assistance paying their rent due to hardship from Covid-19 please guide them to this link which is also posted on City of Winters social media.

https://www.yolocounty.org/Home/Components/News/News/12290/26?fbclid=IwAR3aG8nkdYHV5IISeGADRjgBP-hPpkGMRIk5lOTnDXFHAGzuSWcuxhuiJDE

  • Staff will be working with County Leaders to access CARES Act funding to help the Winters Community with the impact of Covid-19.  Stay tuned for more information as we work through the process. City Staff may be reaching out various community members to ask questions as we move through the process, and I know you all have my email since you are getting this weekly update, so if you feel that you aren’t hearing things that address your situation, please contact me through email so that we can include any issues you are might be facing in our discussions.

The National Election is in just over two weeks from now, November 3, 2020.  Everyone should have received a ballot in the mail, and you can choose how to return that ballot.  Below is a link to the City of Winters Youtube with information on how you can choose to return your ballot.

https://youtu.be/W13NhamVyoE

The Agenda for Tuesday October 20, 2020 includes the following items:

  • Final Acceptance of Public Improvements for the Callahan Estates Phase 2 Subdivision
  • Contract for the installation of Car Charging Stations
  • Contract to Replace the Roof on City Hall (maybe the trash cans can stay on the floor this winter instead of using as leak catchers)
  • Contract for the installation of Emergency Generator at City Hall
  • Review of Laws related to Upcoming Election presented by Police Chief John Miller
  • Status Report from the Winters Senior Commission on Aging.
  • Public Hearing for Ogando Tentative Map for lots off Taylor St and Kennedy Dr.
  • Appointment of City Manager
  • Blue Oak Park and Valley Oak Park Rehabilitation Project using Per Capita Park Grant Funds
  • Creation of Ad Hoc Committee for discussion the future direction of the Winters Putah Creek Committee (WPCC)
  • Update on Housing Element and Community Outreach during Covid -19
  • Winters Downtown Business Association and Winters District Chamber of Commerce Letter to Elected Officials dated October 9, 2020.

I am always surprised how quickly the items on the agenda increases.  It seems that we start with just one or two items, and then we have many more things that the City Council needs to provide direction and approval on.

Update Friday October 9, 2020

Tags : 

Fall is in the air, I can feel it today.

A lot of stuff happened this week.  City staff met with 3 City Manager Candidates on Tuesday.  Wow, Bobbi Peckham and the City Council found some really impressive folks to consider for our next City Manager.  I don’t envy them having to make that decision, as all the candidates were impressive, and we are moving closer and closer to having the new City Manager coming on board.

The City Council approved the acquisition of a new City Council agenda preparation and video streaming program to help make our City Council meetings even easier to access for all residents at our City Council meeting on Tuesday.  Lots of other information was presented, including information from the Sacramento Yolo Mosquito and Vector Control District about mosquitos in Winters, information about other software products are being implemented by the Finance Department and the Building Department.  Lots of new technology to help staff work more efficiently as we move forward with our current model of less staff.

Staff participated in meetings with CalTrans this week, and the best information we received was that the Grant Application referred to as the ATP Grant that we are hoping to get in order to provide better pedestrian access on the overpass over I-505 will be awarded sometime around February 15, 2021.  So that will be when we know the results of all the hard work from the Yolo County and City of Winters staff as well as consultants working to put together the grant.

Staff continues to work on ideas on utilizing the Per Capital Park Grant, more information will be coming to a City Council meeting soon about that.

Election day is coming up fast now, less than a month away  California offers online voter registration.  You can go here: https://registertovote.ca.gov/?t=s to register online.

You should know: you will need a California-issued driver license or California identification card number, the last four digits of your social security number, and consent to the use of your DMV-stored digital signature to use California's online voter registration system. If you don't have a California-issued ID or don't want to provide consent for the use of your digital signature, you can still register by mail to vote.

You can register online to vote until Monday, October 19, 2020.

If you can’t register online, you can still register by mail, and the City of Winters has the voter registration cards that you can pick up fill out and then mail in, but remember, you have to register by Monday October 19, 2020 no matter what form of registration you choose.

Several of our local citizens have recorded youtube videos about why our votes matter, and we will be posting to the City of Winters You Tube, and I will be including some in my updates until election day.  This week I am including Liz Coman’s video, you can find it here: https://youtu.be/4RrdEi0Tpvo.

Friday Update 10/02/2020

Tags : 

Wow, it is already October.  I would say Fall is in the air, but, it isn’t.  It is still hot outside, and the nice clean air from last Friday has been replaced with smoky air this week.

This week our fire crew that was deployed to OES in Fresno has returned home safely and are back staffing the Fire Station.  Our Fire Chief is deployed to the Zogg Fire up around Redding helping with the strike teams up there.

We moved from the Purple Tier to the Red Tier on the Covid-19 scale this Tuesday.  This is the State of California’s way of letting us know what rules we have to follow for dealing with Covid-19.  This is some encouraging news, although still frustrating for all our businesses and residents. What does this mean?

  • Restaurants can open indoors with 25% occupancy
  • retail can open with 50% occupancy
  • fitness and gyms can open with 10% occupancy
  • places of worship can open with 25% occupancy.
  • Playgrounds have new guidelines that were released by the State of California last week, and the guidelines are posted at our playground areas now.
  • Still no events
  • Still no gatherings
  • Masks are still required

You can go to the link below to see a more exhaustive list of what is allowed and not-allowed in the Red Tier in Yolo County: https://www.yolocounty.org/health-human-services/adults/communicable-disease-investigation-and-control/novel-coronavirus-2019/roadmap-to-recovery

A new fire started in the Napa County this week, and Napa County let everyone from Napa, Solano, Yolo and Sacramento Counties know that there was an extreme fire danger.  Unfortunately, this is what happens when a WEA alert goes out instead of using the more targeted Alert systems.  My understanding is that there is very little control over who gets the WEA type alerts and so it can be pretty widespread and inaccurate.

Yolo and Solano County both had to send out an Alert to all those enrolled in their particular programs that the Napa County Alert was not meant for anyone outside of Napa County.  Lucky me, I got all the alerts from everyone, because, since I am so close to Solano County here in Winters, I signed up for Alert-Solano after the LNU complex fire and I was already signed up for the Alert-Yolo system.  Yolo County doesn’t usually send out the “not Yolo” alert, but the Napa County Alert was so wide spread, that Yolo County OES made the decision that it was needed in this case.

Don’t forget, if you are a small business in the City of Winters there is a Small Business Grant Program in place funded by CARES Act Funding. Applications for Small Business Grants from Yolo County are open until October 4, 2020 at 5pm (yes I know that is a Sunday, but, that is what Yolo County said). Find all the information about the program and how to apply here https://www.yolocounty.org/health-human-services/adults/communicable-disease-investigation-and-control/novel-coronavirus-2019/small-business-grant-program

On the City Manager search front, interviews were held today for the first round.  I don’t know much more than there were 2 panels of interviewers.

The October 6, 2020 City Council meeting items include:

  • Amendment to Contract with BBK for City Attorney Services
  • Irrevocable Offer of Dedication of Road Right of Way
  • Project Budget Sheet and Amendment to West Yost Agreement for WWTF Influent Screen Phase 2
  • Public Sidewalk Easement for Blue Mountain Terrace
  • WasteWater Treatment Facility Monitoring Services Contract
  • Climate Action Plan Extension of Term
  • Contract with James George Designs
  • Introduction of new Permit Tech, Kelsey Bean
  • Update on Invasive Mosquito Found in Winters by Gary Goodman
  • Update on Finance and HR software implementation
  • Update on Building Permit Software Implementation
  • Creation of a fundraising Commission for Furniture and Fixtures for the soon to be constructed Senior Center.
  • Authorization for Agenda Management and Video Streaming Services Software
  • Proposal to Cancel the November 3, 2020 City Council Meeting.

A lot of things are going on in Winters, and hopefully we can remain strong and get through this pandemic successfully together.   If we (Yolo County) can continue the good work of the past few weeks and months, hopefully we can look at the Red Tier in the rearview mirror in about 3 weeks and move into the Orange Tier which will be much better for our businesses and our residents.

Friday update 9-18-2020

Tags : 

There are a lot of clean cars in Winters this week.  Thanks to the Winters Fire Department, Winters Police Department and Kona Ice, people were able to get their cars washed and raise money for fire victims on Sunday September 13, 2020.  Good job by all the Fire, Police and Kona people, and good job to all the folks that came and got their cars washed.  Once again, the community spirit in Winters has provided for those in need.

Tuesday night the City Council recognized the service of Dan Maguire and Carol Scianna to the City of Winters.  We had hoped to have a party, but, you know…..COVID…. Do we need to say more?

We also received a presentation from Kate Laddish and Elaine Roberts Musser on Emergency preparedness and Evacuation Planning for Vulnerable Populations.   This included a copy of the Recommendations to the Yolo County Supervisors on January 28, 2020.  You can find the report here  http://www.cityofwinters.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/2020_0915CityCouncilPacket.pdf   The report starts on page 47.

We also received an update and information on how various emergency alerts are sent out by Dana Carey with Yolo County OES.  I would encourage everyone to sign up for the alert system at www.yolo-alert.org and put ALL your phone numbers and addresses into the system for the best coverage possible for the alerting system within Yolo County.  To view an evacuation map, go to www.evacuate.yolocounty.org for the map, you can put in your address and it will tell you your evacuation zone.

John Donlevy gave us a BIG list of projects that he and everyone else at City Hall is working on or needs to work on in the coming months and years.  Hopefully this will help our new City Manager see what a great cooperative team of people are working here at City Hall as we all work together on this project list.

Excitement is in the air about the receipt of the Grant for the Winters Senior Center.  We are getting lots of questions of what the next step is and when that will happen.  The next step is that the City of Winters needs to enter into a contract for the Grant with the State of California.  That typically takes 4-6 weeks to get the contract into the hands of City Staff, so we are still waiting on that.  Once the contract is signed by both parties, we are ready to put the project out to bid.  This means it will be advertised for builders to review the plans and provide the City with a bid on constructing the project.  Once that happens, we will review all the bids and award and contract for construction and construction can begin.  It is a process that is determined by State and Federal guidelines since they are providing the bulk of the money for the project.  We have to follow the rules, and in the end, we will have a beautiful facility for the Senior population of our City.

We have received notification from the Sacramento-Yolo Mosquito Vector Control District that invasive (meaning not native to California) mosquitos have been found in Winters.  I know with all the smoke in the air we haven’t been doing a lot of outdoor activities, but, we need to be sure that we eliminate standing water to minimize the mosquitos.  Ground mosquito control treatments did take place this morning and will take place again on Monday 9-21-2020 between 2am and 5am.  If you would like to sign up for mosquito control notifications you can do so here https://www.fightthebite.net/services/spray-notifications/

Yolo County is launching a Small Business Grant Program today with the launch of the website for information and the grant application period begins on September 28, 2020 at 9 AM.  The website for the program is www.yolocounty.org/small-business-grant

You can email questions to SBGprogram@yolocounty.org.

Seems like I put a lot of links into this week’s update, but, hopefully it will provide good information for everyone.

Have a good weekend
