City wins approval of youth services grant Supervisors provide $48,700 for project A collaborative presentation by Cloverdale's Mayor Tom Sink, along with community represen- tatives, proved successful in con- vincing the Board of Supervisors of Sonoma County that "Clover- dale takes care of its own." The result of the presentation held May 6 was approval of $48,700 in Community Develop- ment Block Grant monies for the City for a Social Advocates for Youth project entitled Youth and Family Resource Center Part- nership, a project designed to create a coordinated delivery system of youth services. A request for a grant in the amount of $116,705 was submit- ted earlier through the block grant program. This proposal did not receive an endorsement by the Grant Committee; How- ever, a second round of funding remained available to the Board amounting to $64,000. Mayor Sink led the presenta- tion before the Beard stating, 'Fhis project is Cloverdale's high- est priority. We, in Cloverdale, value our youth and believe that they deserve a total support net- work locally. The request before the Board of Supervisors will provide the seed money to start the program and Cloverdale will build from there. When Clover- dale pledges to complete a project, it stands behind that pledge.

Fully-funded budget on agenda May 14 Presentation of a fully-funded budget to the City Council will be on the agenda for the May 14 meeting. The Council convenes in cham- bers at City Hall, 124 N. Clover- dale Blvd. at 6:30 p.m. The presentation is regarded by City Manager Bob Perrault and staff as a collaborative ap- proach to budgeting for the fu- ture based on a number of brain- storming sessions between vari- ous levels of management some months ago. Perrault has gained Council approval of a budget period of two years rather than one. Followingthe public portion of the meetingthe Council will meet in closed session with labor ne- gotiators, Perrault and his as- sistant Carol Giovanatto to dis- cuss negotiations wit the Clo- verdale Police Officers Associa- tion and the General Employees Association. The dosed session will also include a conference with Spe- cial Counsel Clay Clement and staff regarding anticipated lit- gation concerning the Clover- dale Fire Protection District's petition for transfer of an annu- al amount of property taxes from the City to the District. Other agenda items will in- chde authorization to use the Plaza and Downtown area for a Car Show May 24 sponsored by the High School Regional Occu- pation Program's shop class and the annual agreement with the YMCA to provide services at the city pool this summer. Also to be considered will be a claim against the City filed by Janelle R. Duna for $127.32 for damage to her car when she hit a City sign in front of the new Chevron Station. Council dialogues in private homes planned Cloverdale's City Council has decided to participate a second year n neighborhood dialogues. The program will involve hold- ing a series of small group dia- logues in private homes in the coming months. The City is soliciting the use of local residences in this novel ap- proash to communications. During the discussions coun- cilmembers hope to impart, in an informal setting, information regarding activities the City is currently undertaking, and mors importantly to listen to the thoughts and suggestions from the community's residents, Ci Manager Bob Perrault ex- plained. Mayor Tom Sink notes 'Tee are presently planning City op- erations for the next two years and in order to be successful with our plans, we need to know the citizen's concerns." Mayor Sink went on to state "Hopeful- ly, the small group setting will be more conducive to communi- cation than the more formalized setting of the council chambers." The City hopes that sufficient residents will come forward to offer their homes so that a dia- logue can take place in each of the major neighborhoods in Clo- verdale. The meetings are ex- pocted to last up to two hours. The City will make all arrange- ments including providing re- freshments. Individuals interested in of- fering their homes are asked to contact Bob Perrault, City Man- ager, at 894-2521.
