This update is over 30 days old.

Here is an updated report from the Weed Long Term Recovery Group as we head into the new year and building season. Contact information is included in the report if you have any questions.

Case Management continues to coordinate resources and volunteer help to ensure fairness and prevent duplication of services for those households affected by the 2014 Boles Fire. Results of a phone survey have tallied 26 Boles Fire households requesting various forms of assistance in the upcoming building season. LTRG Volunteer Coordinator reports that there are 13 groups with scheduled dates to offer volunteer skills beginning in March. Working together with LTRG Construction Coordinator, it is anticipated that by the three-year anniversary date of September 15, 2017, the building needs of those working within the case management structure will be completed. This progress can be attributed to a generous community of donors, volunteers, city and LTRG staff coordination and public support. Beginning March1st, LTRG staff is expected to return to part time office hours in the LTRG office located upstairs from the library at 150 Alamo for those who would like to check in on any outstanding needs as a result of the Boles Fire.
