Weed LTRG to City Council Report 9/14/17

posted 29 days ago by WeedLTRG from Weed Long Term Recovery Group

Happy Anniversary!

As funding for staffing the LTRG Case Management, Volunteer Coordinator and Construction Coordinator winds down to a close this fall, there is less to report. Most case work is focused on Habitat for Humanity families with logistics such as setting up their power and water accounts, finalizing insurance coverage, and communicating with Siskiyou Habitat for Humanity about the status of the title paperwork and payments. Several households not involved with Siskiyou Habitat for Humanity have asked for volunteer help and have been referred to the Volunteer Coordinator.

The last delivery of sandy soil is planned to be completed by 9/17/17. Case Management is coordinating documentation and working with the Resources Committee members to complete this service to those Boles Fire survivors who had registered to receive it.

By the end of September, remaining volunteer groups will be coordinated by and working through Habitat for Humanity on their designated projects.

The Weed Presbyterian Church is having two celebration events and invites the public to attend: 1. Friday September 15th from 3pm until 5pm they are hosting those who worked on the fire and those who worked to rebuild plus city and county officials. 2. Sunday September 17th a worship service starting at 10:30 am followed by a tour of the facility and a dinner.
