October 2019

Dear Honorable Board,

In what feels like a blink of the eye, fall is upon us — wasn’t just yesterday the beginning of summer? But during that proverbial blink, the County’s departments and dedicated employees have been hard at work delivering on our collective commitment to your constituents and our community. As you’ll find in the pages of this fall 2019 edition of the County Manager’s Quarterly Report, our work the last three months has included completing our eagerly anticipated Regional Operations Center (ROC), finalizing the adopted budget, earning two prestigious Challenge Awards from the California State Association of Counties for Home for All and the Integrated Medication Assisted Treatment Team, and being ranked fifth by population category in the 2019 Digital Counties Survey which recognizes innovation and digital services. We’ve practiced our emergency preparations, collaborated between departments, tested new innovations and begun the 2019 session of Civics 101 which lets our public learn firsthand about how we work. Please enjoy discovering greater details about these notable successes and our remarkable employees in this edition of the Quarterly Report. Meanwhile, I and every member of County staff will be busy creating even more accomplishments to proudly showcase in the next.


Mike Callagy

County Manager/Clerk of the Board
