- In other action
On Tuesday, the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors also:
- Honored the county Mental Health Advisory Board, which includes Woodbridge residents Tasso and Gertie Kandris. Tasso Kandris praised Supervisors Larry Ruhstaller and Steve Bestolarides for attending Mental Health Board meetings. Ruhstaller said that the Mental Health Board is more active than many advisory boards serving the county.
- The Mental Health Board will describe its services at a community meeting from 5:30 to 7 p.m. May 15 at the Lodi Police Department community room, 215 W. Elm St.
- Approved an agreement with Our Lady of Fatima Society for Sheriff's protection at rodeos and bloodless bullfights on May 20, June 10, July 8, Aug. 12, Sept. 9, Sept. 30, Oct. 20 and Oct. 22 at St. John's Arena in Thornton. The society will be charged for actual hours worked by Sheriff's deputies, but the cost estimate is almost $22,000.
- Approved spending up to $16,000 to represent the county's interest regarding a proposal to transport Delta water to the southern San Joaquin Valley and Southern California. According to a staff report, the money, plus contributions from local cities, will be used to propose changes to the Bay Delta Conservation Plan and discredit the plan that is currently on the table.
