With the gaps in public health infrastructure, Public Health Director Sara Bosse stressed the need to expand staffing and infrastructure. 

The proposed plan for expansion includes the new building adjacent to the Department of Public Health building.

The building will provide more space for the lab equipment and testing, clinical service, staff, storage, backup power, and multi-purpose outdoor space.

The Board (5-0) approved the item. 

6.g. 7838: Discussion and consideration to adopt a Resolution approving an application for the Rural Recreation and Tourism Program (RRTP) grant funds. 

Christian Schamp from County Administration stated that the RRTP grant would fund park infrastructure and support amenities. 

The state extended the application deadline to Jan. 20, 2022. The program totals $12.1 million. Likewise, the Board (5-0) approved the item. 

6.h. 7939: Discussion and consideration of approval to ratify the Memorandum of Understanding between Madera County and the Communications Dispatcher Unit for a three (3) year term (July 1, 2021 – June 30, 2024). The Board (5-0) approved the item.

6.j. 7857: American Rescue Plan Act Funds. 

1. Presentation on status of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) projects and discussion and direction on ARPA uses. 

2. Discussion and consideration of approval of Transfer of Appropriations No. 21-035 for $2,794,300.00 from ARPA Fund – Appropriation for Contingencies to Professional and Specialized Services for the Fiscal Year 2021-2022. 

Deputy County Administrative Officer for Finance Joel Bugay stated that the State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund (SLFRF) involves $350 billion invested in the fiscal recovery of states, counties, cities, and tribal governments.

With considerable flexibility on the use of funds, counties and cities with populations greater than 50,000 received a direct federal allocation. 

Cities with less than 50,000 in population will receive SLFRF funds through the State based on a population-based calculation as follows: 

  • County of Madera with $30,558,925 through direct Federal allocation

  • The city of Madera with $23,070,374 also through direct Federal allocation

  • The city of Chowchilla with $4,380,141 via State pass-through.

SLFRF intends to:

  • Replace lost revenue to strengthen support for vital public services and retain workforce for essential services 

  • Support immediate economic stabilization for households and businesses

  • Support urgent response efforts to bring the pandemic under control

  • Support recovery efforts in highly impacted areas

Budget Stabilization Earmark will reduce the total earmark by $6,554,920 based on projected need after accounting for improved discretionary revenue projections.

Structural deficit still projected through the fiscal year 2024-25 but at a lower level. 

The earmark includes the projected general fund impact of one-time stipends for employees due to collective bargaining. 

Public safety infrastructure funds will expedite and facilitate the construction of Fire Station 3, which serves the communities of Fairmead, Madera Acres, Valley Lake Ranchos, Lake Madera Country Estates, and Berenda.

The former Station 3 facility was closed in Summer 2017. Staff and engine crew have temporarily operated out of the Sheriff’s Office, City Station 56, and, currently, City Station 58 until the new station is complete. 

The remaining funds help augment any potential deficits in other public safety construction projects, including the Jail Smoke Evacuation System and the Sheriff’s Oakhurst Storage Facility. 

In August 2020, the County utilized Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) to fund small business assistance grants to all impacted businesses countywide.

The County has issued $3,440,350 in CARES-funded small business grants countywide as follows: 

  • $1,938,550 to Unincorporated Area businesses

  • $1,096,500 to City of Madera businesses

  • $405,000 to City of Chowchilla businesses

The funding provided $260,000 in rental assistance and legal assistance for renters to avoid evictions in 2020. 

Then, he urged to increase allocation to this category to $4,794,300 (a $2 million increase from the June 1, 2021 allocations)

Recommended programs cover as follows: 

  • $1.2 million in utility or mortgage assistance for low-income homeowners who are struggling due to the impacts of the pandemic

  • $1.6 million in grants to small businesses and nonprofits located in the unincorporated areas of the County

  • $2.0 million to hold in reserve to augment either of the two programs above after the initial application phase

Regarding assistance to low-income homeowners, the State’s Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) provides rental and utility payment assistance to low-income renters to keep them housed; the program includes paying back rent owed.

There are currently no pandemic assistance programs to help homeowners under the same financial circumstances and are struggling to keep up with utility payments and or mortgage payments.

The proposed program will provide grants to small businesses and qualified non-profit entities struggling with the pandemic.

The funding will target small businesses and nonprofit entities located within the unincorporated areas of the County severely impacted by the pandemic, including tourism, hospitality, and other related sectors. 

ARPA provides greater flexibility on eligibility.

If the board concurs with the general approach, staff will return with proposed program guidelines and a proposed agreement with Madera County Economic Development Commission (EDC) to administer the program. 

He sought the Board to Allocate $2.1 Million of ARPA funding to provide one-time premium pay” payments to essential workers for work performed in-person during the summer and winter surges of 2020.

ARPA allowed explicitly for this compensation and intended to acknowledge essential workers who had to perform their work in-person and thus have faced a “heightened risk” of exposure. 

Due to the budget stabilization earmark reduction, the current recommended unallocated balance is $2,454,520, which is available for the Board to appropriate any ARPA eligible expenditures.

Potential priorities to consider are as follows:

  • Assistance to Madera Community Hospital for unreimbursed pandemic-related medical costs

  • Funding for projects that target disadvantaged communities within the unincorporated areas of the County

Leticia Gomez from Leadership Council on Justice and Accountability, Madera resident Esther Cuevas, and  Sylvia Gonzales pleaded for funding for communities with transportation, health, and broadband challenges.

The Board (5-0) approved the item. 

The public hearings centered on the following: 

7.a. 7912: Fourth Hearing for the 2021 Redistricting process under Elections Code 21507.1(a)(2). 

Chief of Developmental Services Matthew Treber presented the five mapping options that revise current supervisorial districts and overview of community workshops.

Countywide, the Hispanic citizen voting-age population is 36,788, 42.7% of the total population, along with varying percentages in other races. 

In every one of the five map options, 4 out of 5 of the supervisor district boundaries drafted have exceeded the Hispanic citizen voting-age population. 

He recommended a fifth redistricting hearing on Nov. 16, 2021, at Chowchilla City Hall at 6:00 pm. 

Staff continues its outreach through workshops with local community groups and prepares additional feasible maps for recommendations.

He foresees the adoption of the new supervisorial district boundaries in December 2021.

Madera Farm Bureau Executive Director Beckstead asked when staff recommendations on the mapping would arrive. Treber clarified that the recommendations will come in the “next couple of weeks.”

La Cresta Demographics CEO Jesus Garcia, commissioned by the Equitable Maps Coalition in Madera County, presented some boundary maps. 

He stated that the current districts are off-balance by 6,000, while the proposed districts will create 3 Latino-majority voter population districts. 

Proposed districts 1, 3, and 4 are the core of the redistricting process. Following the Fair Maps Act, he said that their proposal kept cities whole. 

He pointed out that all proposed maps by the staff maintain the status quo, which will come under scrutiny under the Voter Rights Act. 

District #5 resident Cynthia Wilson stated that her district has been “underserved” and urged the maps to be “equitable.” Likewise, Madera resident and veteran Chris Esmond echoed her views.

Madera Mayor Santos Garcia urged the Board to develop “best solutions” and prepare for “changes.”

Central Valley Redistricting Organizer Huerta-Silva expressed concerns over the proposed redistricting maps. 

Then, he urged to move the “self-imposed” deadline of Nov. 17 to allow for public participation and incorporating factors such as socioeconomic data.

8.a. 7890: Presentation and update on Madera County Groundwater Sustainability Agencies. 

Director Anagnoson stated that they are updating allocations for irrigated acres while sending letters to never irrigated acres.

Site visits are ongoing for Prop 68 grants, totaling $8.4 million, especially recharging in the Chowchilla and Madera subbasins. The water market simulation was last month.

In outreach, they have participated in the following events:

-Weekly San Joaquin Valley Partnership Work Group

-Domestic Well Inventory presentation on Sept. 27, 2021. 

-NGOs Groundwater Workshop on Oct. 27, 2021

-Water Commission Workshop on Oct. 29, 2021

-preparing for the Rates Public Workshop Nov. 30, 2021

In terms of interbasin coordination, there have been ongoing meetings with Delta, Mendota, Merced, Chowchilla, and Madera Subbasins to investigate ways for well inventory. 

Madera Farm Bureau Executive Director Beckstead asked when the rate study would be approved. Director Anagnoson stated that the rate study will come in January or February of 2022. 

Leticia Gomez from Leadership Counsel for Justice and Accountability asked for any domestic well mitigation project update. 

Director Anagnoson clarified that the rate study would include updates to domestic well mitigation projects. 

8.b. 7934: Presentation on Sites Reservoir.

Sites Reservoir Executive Director Jerry Brown said that 23 water agencies across California make up the Sites Reservoir project. 

Then, he noted “affordability and feasibility” as criteria for the water infrastructure project. 

The reservoir, which covers 5.1 million acre-feet, will be the 7th largest reservoir in the state and is located approximately 10 miles from Maxwell, California. 

Project performance will improve by approximately 5% to 10% under anticipated climate change conditions.

He stated that the project would address challenges as follows:

  • Captures excess flows in the Sacramento River, which is rain instead of snowmelt

  • Off-stream storage and state of the art fish screens to protect the river system environment

  • Adds 1.5 million acre-feet of storage space, providing water management flexibility

  • Provides new, affordable water for people, farms, and the environment during the more frequent dry spells California will experience

  • Allows other reservoirs, like Shasta Oroville and Folsom, to optimize cold water during dry periods for environmental purpose

Sites Reservoir Executive Director Brown announced that if the Sites Reservoir project had been in place for the 2021 drought year, there would be nearly 1 million acre-feet of additional water for California’s farms, cities, and the environment.

The program totals $4 billion, two-thirds of which will be funded by the local government. The water rights agreement will be certified in the middle of 2023.
