Mental Health Services Act Innovation Project for Butte County - In November of 2004, California voters passed Proposition 63 creating the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA). The act created an additional 1 tax on California residents whose income exceeded 1 million per year.

The Mental Health Services Oversight Accountability Commission (MHSOAC) controls funding approval for all innovation projects. Innovation projects must introduce a mental health practice or approach that is new to the overall mental health system or make a change to an existing practice in the field of mental health, including application to a different population. A 30-day public comment period was initiated on February 20, 2019, and concluded on March 20, 2019. Community meetings were held in Oroville, Gridley, and Chico. After considering the public input, the Behavioral Health Board recommended the current innovation project proposal, The CARE Project, to be sent to the Board of Supervisors for approval as required by the MHSOAC.

Joint Powers Authority (JPA) Agreement Amendment and Accompanying Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the California Single Statewide Automated Welfare System (CalSAWS) - For many years, California counties operated their welfare eligibility systems though their own proprietary systems or through a consortium of several counties.

Moving toward that mandate, the remaining counties and the CalACES Consortium have joined together to form the CalSAWS Consortium. The Department recommends amending the JPA and entering into an accompanying MOU with the CalSAWS Consortium to require that all counties in the consortium pay their share of maintenance, operation, and administrative costs of the system.

Agreement with Butte County Resource Conservation District (BCRCD) for Dixie Road Evaluation and Storm Damage Support - On January 19, 2019, a portion of Dixie Road suffered significant storm damage including a washed out culvert and substantial damage to multiple drainage crossings. nbsp; This damage closed the road to all traffic for several weeks. nbsp; Dixie Road is a gravel and native surfaced road that connects Concow Road to Camp Creek Road, and is located in a high burn severity area of the Camp Fire. This roadway has a history of failures during heavy winter storms, and is prone to heavy erosion and sediment delivery into the local waterways. This road is also the only route to service multiple utilities when Camp Creek Road is closed. In response to this damage, the Department of Public Works sought technical support from the BCRCD to repair the existing damage, to harden the roadway to avoid future damage, and reduce and/or minimize the off-site transport of silt into the waterways. As a result of the Camp Fire, staff are currently working with staff from the Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB) to secure funding to construct these improvements. The grading and drainage improvements are likely to be completely funded by the RWQCB, but that does not include the evaluation work. The Department recommends entering into a contract with BCRCD for Dixie Road Evaluation and Storm Damage Support. The term of the contract is April 9, 2020 through December 30, 2020, not-to-exceed 50,000. nbsp;

Request by the City of Chico for Consent to Extra-Territorial Property Acquisitions for the Eaton Road Interchange Improvement Project - The City of Chico requested consent from the County to execute three extra-territorial property acquisitions outside the City boundary. The acquisitions are needed for the City to acquire right of way for the improvement of the north bound off ramp for the SR99/Eaton Road Interchange Project in North Chico. Specific details of the project and the necessary easements are included in the request from the City. In June of 2018, the County transferred 450,000 in Chico Urban Area Traffic Impact fees to the City of Chico, to provide supplemental funding for this project, as this project benefits both City and County residents. Government Code section 37351 provides for such extra-territorial acquisitions by cities, as is necessary or proper for municipal services. nbsp; In this case, the City is the lead agency for a project that normally would be managed by Caltrans. The right of way that the City acquires will ultimately be transferred to Caltrans. The SR99/Eaton Road Interchange Project will be constructed by the City of Chico, then maintained by Caltrans. nbsp;

AUTHORIZE THE CITY OF CHICO'S ACQUISITION OF THREE EXTRA-TERRITORIAL PROPERTIES.

Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account (RMRA) Project List for FY 2019-20 - SB1 Transportation Funding known as RMRA is projected to provide the Butte County Road Fund with 5.9 million dollars for FY 2019-20. nbsp; A list of proposed projects that the RMRA funds will be used for must be submitted to the California Transportation Commission (CTC) each year. The project list includes the location, description, estimated useful life, and anticipated construction date for each project. nbsp; New this year is an additional list of previously proposed projects that have not yet been completed that are still slated to utilize RMRA funds. nbsp; Exhibit A to the recommended resolution includes the proposed new project list for FY 2019-20, and Exhibit B includes the previously approved, incomplete project list for FY 2018-19. Additionally, a list of projects that have been completed using RMRA funds is included in the staff report. The projects list may need to be modified in the near future as the damage caused by the Camp Fire debris removal and the associated recovery efforts will create additional high-priority roadway repairs. The previous Magalia and Upper Ridge Projects are all on hold pending the Camp Fire clean up. Several new, large-value projects have been added to reflect new road failures that occurred during the winter of 2019. These include the Dark Canyon Slide Repair, Upper Centerville Slide Repair, and Neal Road Emergency Road Repairs. nbsp; These funds are also being utilized to leverage various State and federal grant funding sources, such as Highway Safety Improvement Program, Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality, and Safe Routes to School. The Department of Public Works recommends the Board of Supervisors adopt the resolution which includes all of the CTC requirements.

Resolution Certifying the Annual Changes to the Butte County Maintained Mileage for 2019 nbsp; Section 2121 of the California Streets and Highways Code, and Chapter 18 of the Caltrans Local Assistance Procedures Manual requires that counties submit a list of changes that have occurred to their list of maintained roads by May of each year. The County rsquo;s submitted data is then forwarded by Caltrans to the State Controller for the allocation of State Gas Tax Funds. Caltrans District 3 Office of Local Assistance has requested that the Board of Supervisors adopt a resolution prior to May 15, 2019, for the new maintained mileage. The County maintained mileage for the previous year (ending December 31, 2018) was determined to be 1,289.153 miles. The calculated mileage to be submitted this year is 1,290.442 miles, which is an increase of 1.289 miles. This increase is primarily due to additions to the Sierra Moon and Mandville Park Subdivisions.

Introduction of an Ordinance Amending Chapter 38A, Entitled quot;Fire Prevention and Protection quot; of the Butte County Code - On June 13, 2006, the Board of Supervisors adopted Ordinance No. 3936, Chapter 38A, entitled quot;Fire Prevention and Protection quot; of the Butte County Code, which requires the owners and occupants of real property in the unincorporated areas to maintain properties. As currently adopted, it is unclear whether Chapter 38A allows for power line inspections in the unincorporated areas of the County and in State Responsibility Areas. The proposed ordinance amendment would add language from the California Public Resources Code sections 4292 and 4293, which requires vegetation clearance around power lines, authorizes inspections, and gives authority to notify public and private utility companies through an quot;Order to Abate Fire Hazard quot; when a violation is identified so that it may be corrected. nbsp;

Resolution Supporting an Emergency Alternative Point of Diversion of Non-Project Water - On November 14, 2017, Butte County entered into an agreement with the Department of Water Resources to utilize Lake Oroville, a State Water Project facility, to deliver water from Pacific Gas Electric (PG E) to the California Water Service Company (CWS) Oroville District. nbsp; The adopted Negative Declaration for the project (Resolution No. 17-193) specifies that the delivery to Lake Oroville would occur at PG E rsquo;s Lime Saddle Powerhouse from the Miocene Canal. The Camp Fire destroyed the Miocene Canal which prevents water from being delivered to the Lime Saddle Powerhouse from the Miocene Canal. The Department of Water and Resource Conservation, CWS, and PG E identified an alternative location to deliver the water to Lake Oroville just below the head dam on the West Branch of the Feather River to Lake Oroville. An environmental review of this alternative point of diversion will take up to three years to complete, which would disrupt the CWS water supply. The circumstances meet the requirements for certifying and filing of a Notice of Exemption based on an emergency that uses an existing facility, which in this case is the West Branch of the Feather River. The Board of Supervisors can certify that the alternative point of diversion meets the requirements of a Notice of Exemption. The Notice of Exemption would avoid a disruption of the water supply while an environmental review is completed. )
