The Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors took the following actions Tuesday:
Approved actions to complete the cleanup of the Stanislaus County Honor Farm barracks destroyed by fire June 26. County Chief Executive Officer Rick Robinson was given emergency authority to negotiate a contract for the remaining demolition and removal of debris. According to reports, the county's insurance covers the damage, demolition, cleanup, replacement of facilities and other costs resulting from the fire.
Approved a letter of support to the National Parks Service for the Lower Stanislaus River Trail and Greenway proposal. The river trail would run from Knights Ferry to the confluence of the Stanislaus and San Joaquin rivers, west of Caswell Memorial State Park in Ripon.
Approved a $250,000 budget increase to expand specialized behavioral health services to high-risk children from birth to 5 years old. The program strives to reduce symptoms of emotional and behavioral problems through early identification and treatment planning. The additional $250,000 in funding comes from the Children and Families Commission.
Never miss a local story.
