The Mendocino County board of supervisors is holding a special meeting on the morning of Tuesday, Feb. 5 to discuss and possibly reaffirm a declaration of emergency regarding flooding at a county facility. Roughly half of the building housing Public Health and Mental Health reportedly received significant damage when a pipe burst on Jan. 21.

Since then, county personnel who work in the facility have been relocated and contractors have been brought in to remediate the flood damage plan for the building’s restoration. There’s also a Public Employee Performance Evaluation scheduled for closed session, dealing with Mendocino County’s Air Quality Pollution Control officer, Chris Brown.
