December news updates

News and updates from Sandy

Our board is committed to providing the highest quality of life for Lake County residents, and to being good stewards of the environment.  I’m especially pleased to report that our board recently approved an agreement that will bring solar power to Lake County-owned buildings, as well as facilities owned by local municipalities.  Additionally, as part of our 2020 budget, we approved funding to support multiple projects to help alleviate stormwater runoff and reduce flooding.  You can read more in my newsletter

At this time of year, I think about how blessed I am for the opportunities I have had in life, and reflect on how I can help those who are less fortunate.  One project that I and and several other county employees have participated in each year is our annual Point-in-Time homeless count, where we seek out and offer assistance to homeless individuals in Lake County.  This year’s count will take place the evening of Jan. 22, and you can find information below about volunteering.

Every month, I report out to my colleagues and I've included the December Report for your reference. I hope you will take a moment to read about some of things we are working toward to improve the quality of life in Lake County and to ensure that our government is being efficient with your tax dollars.

It has been my honor and privilege to serve as your representative to the Lake County Board, and to have served as Board Chair for the last year.  Best wishes to you and your loved ones for a peaceful and safe holiday season and a happy and healthy New Year.
