Solano County

Solano Board of Supervisors next meets Feb. 19

By From page A4 | February 12, 2013

FAIRFIELD — The Solano County Board of Supervisors will end up taking a winter break of more than a month between casting votes.

Supervisors last met Jan. 15 for a meeting with action items, though they did meet Jan. 22 for a team-building and goal-setting workshop. They next meet Feb. 19. The usual rhythm of meeting every first, second and fourth Tuesday of the month has been disrupted.

The board will not meet Tuesday because of Lincoln’s birthday. This is a county holiday and county offices will be closed.

It didn’t meet Feb. 5 because of a Delta Counties Coalition trip to Washington, D.C., from Feb. 4-6. The coalition is an attempt by the five counties containing parts of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta to influence state and federal plans to reshape the Delta to meet today’s water needs and environmental challenges.

As it turned out, Supervisor Skip Thomson was the only Solano County supervisor to go on the trip. Also representing Solano County was Roberta Goulart, who works on Delta issues for the county.

Thomson said the coalition met with officials from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Department of the Interior, as well as various congressional representatives.

“The message is that we have some ideas,” Thomson said. “And we’d like a seat at the table.”

County officials on Monday couldn’t provide the cost of the trip.

The board usually wouldn’t meet the third Tuesday of the month, but it will Feb. 19. It will then hold its regularly scheduled meeting Feb. 26.
