Monterey County Supervisors Form Working Groups to Support Community, Recovery

Post Date:05/08/2020 10:19 AM

As Monterey County joins the state in a phased approach to releasing certain restrictions on local businesses, County Supervisors are pleased to share news that Ad Hoc Committees have been formed and are already working to address the challenges faced by specific sectors through the Covid-19 pandemic. While maintaining a focus on the health of our communities and the need for policies and protocols to protect our residents and workforce, the Board of Supervisors is seeking to continue to engage industry leadership, labor leaders and others to prepare for a broader reopening of our economy.

Through this ad hoc structure, Supervisors can directly engage with each economic sector’s leadership and address specific challenges.

The following committees have already begun to work. Each committee will work with industry groups to create its own meeting schedule. Here is the list of committees and participating supervisors:

Agricultural Ad Hoc                                       Sup. Luis Alejo           Sup. Chris Lopez

Construction Ad Hoc                                     Sup. John Phillips        Sup. Chris Lopez

Hospitality Ad Hoc                                        Sup. Mary Adams       Sup. John Phillips

Non-Hospital Medical/Personal Services        Sup. Jane Parker          Sup. Mary Adams

Religious Organizations Ad Hoc                    Sup. Chris Lopez        Sup. Luis Alejo

This list is not intended to be considered complete. As the County continues to engage with the community to tackle the challenges that come with restarting our local economy, it’s important to remain nimble and flexible while continuing to plan and implement needed changes.

Plans, protocols, recommendations and advisories created through these committees will be provided to appropriate Monterey County departments for input. The Board of Supervisors will provide regular updates to the community at future meetings. Local industry and government have already put much thought, concern and diligence into these efforts and the primary focus remains to keep everyone safe during these challenging times.
