Sutter County Phase I – Local Public Safety Realignment Plan
September 30, 2011
The Sutter County Community Corrections Partnership (CCP) approved their Phase I - Local Public Safety Realignment Plan on September 29, 2011. The plan will be presented to the Sutter County Board of Supervisors on October 11, 2011. The Phase I Plan defines the issues and concerns identified by all CCP agencies, and recommends funding for the Sutter County Jail, Sutter County Probation and substance abuse services to meet the immediate needs of the realigned population. The plan in its entirety can be found on the Community Corrections Partnership Documents page.

Phase II and subsequent plans will identify and measure the actual impact of the new procedures and programs. It will also allow time to thoroughly identify gaps in services, identify issues in community protection, expand programs already in existence, modify court and sentencing practices and norms, and consider the formation of new efforts to enhance public safety across the continuum of enforcement, incarceration, supervision and rehabilitation.

Questions should be sent to Chief Probation Officer/CCP Chair, Christine D. Odom.

Work Underway to Repair Levee Protecting the Nicolaus Basin
September 14, 2011

Construction crews began in the week after Labor Day to repair a damaged section of northern levee along the Natomas Cross Canal at Verona, in south Sutter County.

The project is expected to be completed before the rainy season.

Civil Engineering of Loomis is performing the work under a $397,568 contract. Three quarters of the contract will be paid for by the state of California and 25 percent is a local match that will be paid for by the County of Sutter, and in-kind credit for fill dirt provided by Reclamation District 1001, according to RD 1001 Manager Diane Fales.

The construction company is taking down sections of the levee where cracks developed during storms in March of this year. New soil will be brought in and compacted, and a stability berm to support the new section of levee will be constructed on the land side.

The Natomas Cross Canal carries drainage from Placer County across Sutter County and into the Sacramento River at Verona. Approximately 200 farms and homes in the Nicolaus basin would be at risk for flooding if the levee failed. Highway 99-70 would also be threatened.

Yuba and Sutter Counties Coordinate Launch of New Website Addresses
September 08, 2011
Yuba and Sutter counties are making it easier to access emergency preparedness information by launching new website addresses with direct links to their respective emergency services sites. and are being announced as part of September's National Preparedness Month. The new website addresses will take visitors directly to the emergency management pages without having to navigate through each county's home page.

Information available on the websites includes links to reservoir and river levels, weather advisories, advice on how to prepare emergency "go kits" and—in the event of a local emergency—shelter and evacuation information.

Sutter County's website includes a link to an 80-minute video documentary on the 1955 flood, as well as a video developed in cooperation with the Red Cross on emergency preparation. Links to color posters that can be printed out by individuals, businesses and organizations are also available on the Sutter County site.

Both sites include links to state and national emergency organizations and to the American Red Cross. is the future home of a dedicated emergency website currently being developed and scheduled to go live prior to the upcoming winter season. During development, the web address will direct users to the current Yuba County Office of Emergency Services website.

County officials are coordinating with the Yuba County Water Agency to develop the new website, which will focus on providing emergency preparedness information to help educate citizens on how they can prepare for emergencies. In the event of an emergency occur, the website will become the information go-to site for Yuba County residents.

The site will include tools to build emergency plans, a checklist for creating emergency preparedness kits, and educational materials for teachers in the classroom. Residents will also be able to sign up to receive text messages for emergency and non-emergency information and access details on how to receive assistance and mapping for affected areas.

According to the American Red Cross, more than one-third of all Americans have no plan in place in the event of an emergency, and 40 percent of all businesses do not recover after an emergency. Individuals and businesses that plan for an emergency, however, have a greater chance for survival.

Yuba and Sutter counties will also jointly host a National Weather Service training for volunteer weather spotters. Members of the public are invited to attend weather spotting training at 6 p.m. on Sept. 22 at the Yuba County Government Center, 915 Eighth Street, Marysville.
