“The towns of Lake and Mendocino Counties meet regularly to discuss similar issues, share ideas and provide support and guidance where needed,” City Manager Alan Flora said in his written report to council.
“As a result of these discussions, a proposal was developed, with the town of Ukiah in the lead, for a mutual aid agreement between the six towns. The purpose of putting this agreement in place is to formalize our ability to support each other, provide reimbursement, and clarify roles and responsibilities,” Flora wrote.
