Yolo County is seeking community input on how to spend the $42.8 million the county will be receiving from the American Rescue Plan. Priorities are transformational projects that improve the lives of residents. Eligible projects include those that support the response to the COVID-19 pandemic; address negative impacts caused by the public health emergency; replace lost public sector revenue; provide premium pay for essential workers; and invest in water, sewer and broadband infrastructure. “American Rescue Plan funding is an opportunity for Yolo County to address some of the impacts caused by the pandemic while also potentially investing in necessary infrastructure improvements,” said Yolo County Supervisor Jim Provenza of Davis. “The Board of Supervisors would like to hear from community members prior to making a decision on how to allocate these funds.” County staff will be seeking that input at three in-person community meetings and one virtual meeting in July. Community members can submit their own proposals online to be included in the workshops and proposals must be submitted by Friday, July 2, for staff to review and ensure eligibility requirements are met. The dates and locations for the community workshops are: * Wednesday, July 14, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Veterans Memorial Center, 203 E. 14th St., in Davis. RSVP via https://yolocountyarp-davis.eventbrite.com. * Thursday, July 15, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Arthur F. Turner Library, 1212 Merkley Ave., in West Sacramento.
