Executive Summary:

The recommended action provides the opportunity for Fourth District Supervisor, James Gore, to re-organize District staff assignments and improve how services are provided to the District’s community by adding a position that will have more presence in the community.

 

Discussion:

Sonoma County’s Fourth Supervisorial District runs from the Sonoma - Mendocino County line south into Northwest Santa Rosa. East to West, it extends from the Mayacamas Mountain Range to the Coastal Hills.  Encompassing some 330,000 acres of land and more than 100,000 constituents, the District includes the cities of Cloverdale, Windsor, Healdsburg, and portions of Santa Rosa, as well as the unincorporated communities of Geyserville, Fulton and Larkfield-Wikiup.  The district is home to the Russian River, the Geysers, Lake Sonoma, and the premium wine growing regions of Alexander Valley, Knights Valley, Russian River Valley and Dry Creek Valley. 

 

The District has been staffed for many years with one District Director, and two Board of Supervisor Aide positions.  Recently, a new job class, Board of Supervisors’ Field Representative was developed, which added to the list of job classes that Supervisorial Districts could use to staff the respective Districts.  The Aide position focuses more on general District support and office coverage, and the Field Representative position focuses more on assignments and work that brings that staff member out into the District community on a regular basis.  Given the general make-up of the Fourth Supervisorial District, there is a need for District staff to be immersed in the community on a frequent basis.  The current staff and position structure has some limitations.  It has been determined that changing the one Aide position to a Field Representative position would better serve the needs of the Fourth District.  There will be no negative impact to the existing staff.
