Mountain Messenger (no raise for you) 2/8/17

I do know at the Sierra County Board of Supervisors this week they voted 3/2 to not give a raise to the Supervisors (themselves) of course as always you can listen to the events at the Board on the recording of the meeting on the Sierra County Board of Supervisors Agenda website . And of course read the Mountain Messenger as I am sure the Editor, Don Russell, will have plenty to say about what the vote was and the feelings in the room.

This isn’t Don Russell it is a photo of the Board of Supervisors back in 2013, they’re all still there.

Send anything you need published to Milly, the CEO and most important person in the office, at yesdearyousuck@yahoo.com or you may call directly to 530 289-3262 and talk to Don, (and suggest he give a raise to Jill, Milly’s secretary). For a subscription: send in as below or call 530 289-3262 with credit card in hand.. Write to Don Russell at mtnmess@cwo.com and tell him you subscribed because you read about it on Sierra County Prospect…..

Discussion/direction regarding response from Sierraville District Ranger Quentin Youngblood pertaining to county costs incurred for drug enforcement activities on national forest system lands. (CHAIR ADAMS) No way to provide meaningful reimbursement for costs of marijuana eradication. Don’t think the problem is going away. Quentin is committed to Sierra County working on this issue. The pollution and hazardous waste left by illegal marijuana grows should be addressed by the USFS on federal land. Have not heard from Congressman LaMalfa in terms of this issue. Supervisor Beard suggests seizing control of federal lands. Sheriff Tim Standley mentioned the costs of deputies doing the job are well over what the Grant funding allows.. Supervisor Huebner says send the bill of what it costs. Treasurer Tax Collector/Auditor/Risk Manager and Ruler of All Things Left Unassigned believes the problem will eventually be solved through the political process, if we’re going to send a bill have it as a greater plan. A lot more was said by the Supervisors and Depts and you can listen to the record of the meeting to hear the long discussion… A vote

 Kayte Puckett Resource Coordinator presented this Discussion Paper:
Briefing on the Alliance for Workforce Development, Inc. operations in Sierra County

1. Purpose: It is with pleasure that I take this opportunity to update you on the activities at the Sierra Business and Career Network (BCN), your local One-Stop Employment Center. Our mission is to serve as a common point of access for job seekers, employers and community members for the purpose of education, training, employment, referral and supportive services. AFWD delivers federal and state Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) programs for Adults, Dislocated Workers and Youth of Sierra County.

2. Discussion: AFWD provides workforce development services in six northern California counties; Butte, Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Plumas and Sierra. As a thriving One Stop Career Center, AFWD’s purpose is to create an atmosphere for both the job seeker and the employer – A place where they can success in all endeavors by using the services available to them.

AFWD contracts with the Northern Rural Training and Employment Consortium (NoRTEC) to provide various workforce development programs. Supervisor Huebner represents Sierra County on the NoRTEC Governing Board. We continue to put an emphasis on the business first philosophy, as embraced by NoRTEC. The new WIOA legislation acknowledges and puts priority on ensuring businesses are included in the design and implementation of workforce development programs.

We are in year two (2) of WIOA, which was passed in July 2014. This legislation brings big change to the workforce development system. The most significant change is the requirement to better align all partners in the workforce system to meet employer need. This leads to an increase in partnerships, program alignment and unified regulations. In addition the new legislation provides for a stronger emphasis on career pathways and industry sector focus.

Sierra County’s unemployment rate for August 2016 stands at 6.7%, while the state’s unemployment rate is at 5.6%. This is up from August 2015, where the unemployment rate was 6.5%.

Staff work with job seekers and local employers to ensure that employers find the most qualified individuals for the job and our job seeking customers obtain sustainable work. All efforts are tied to enhancing the workforce development, economic vitality, and a stable and prosperous business community throughout Sierra County.
