She said, "I sell a service, not a product." The next business taken before the board was the matter of the Cloverdale bypass, historical backround of same and comments on the Labor Day demonstration put on by concerned citizens. President Rose reviewed some of the history of the project, citing the fact that the Chamber and city had supported the construction of the freeway bypass for a number of years which had been put on the CalTrans priority list a number of times only to have funds slop in Cloverdale. He noted the bypass will direct them away from the city center. "This is a project Cioverdale needs," he said. "It's a project that not only can be done--it should be done." Architect Peter,son told the council that some county and state grants may be available to help with the restoration work. He said the $120,000 restoration of the Sonoma Depot, now a museum, was aided with a $30,000 grant from the Sonoma County Landmarks Commission. The City Council asked local organizations interested in the depot preservation to form a non-profit corporation  and committee to plan the project and fund raising. Inflation in construction costs is the main reason for the deficit. Cloverdale's proposed freeway bypass and other highway projects may be endangered by the deficit. here :s hal we already have a major funding gap. We don't need t o predict cat ast rophies. We already have people who need hospitals services and cannot get a bed and other people wailing fur out-patient service who are not getting such service." How underfunded is the State of California? A recent st udy developed t in legislative work groups convened by Assemblyman Bates) a "Model for California Mental Heallh Programs." This model, completed in January, 1980, indicated that the State of California needs in excess of $300 million over lhe next few years to bring California's menial health syslem up Io a minimally acceptable ievel...not ideal.., but minimally ac- ceptable level of care. Ap- proximately $242 million in new state funds will be needed to implement this system which will be phased in over a five-year period. That gives some indication as Io the degree of the funding deficit that currently exists. "This model," said Dr. Frye. "is called 'The Legislaive Work Group's Model for California Mental Heallh Programs.' It was developed by recognized menal health experls in California (working togelher for many months) and facililaled by the California Menial Health Association. It represents a model that is based on units of 100,000 population. It says we need su many acute beds per 100,000 population, so many subacute beds, so many out- pa=ient slots, etc. This way we get an accurate picture of wha is needed to provide a satisfactory level of mental health services. The above $242 million-plus figure is interesting because il was also the approximate figure menlioned by the Commission on California Slate Government and Economy. called the 't!le Hoover Commission,' in their Augusl. 1970, report. The commission also pointed out severe deficiencies in the state menial health system and recommended (he budget for slate programs for mental disability should be Geyserville Area Busin augmented by approximately $242 million for Fiscal Year 1979-80. "I think that $242 million figure is definitely necessary if we are 10 meet the basic mental health needs we have at this time. "Sonoma County is not only underfunded, it's also, un- fortunately, overburdened in it's menial health needs. Of he 20 largest counties in the stale, Sonoma is the 10th neediest in terms of mental health needs. "The state has a 26-factor- formula it uses to determine mental health needs, in- eluding population as the primary factor. Other high risk indicators such as popula ion over 50, minorities, separated or widowed individuals, population and overcrowded housing, low education st at us, population and- poverly, disabled persons, persons living alone, low occupational status are also considered. When the state, using this 2@factor-formula, measures mental health need, Sonoma County comes out as 10th neediest. That indicates the severity of our local mental health problem." Continued next week.  SALARY INCREASES Council members approved merit salary increases for Fire Chief Milt Holt and Fire, Inspector Robert Ramage. CEMETERY GATE Councilman Scalese reported that the public works department has completed the council's order for a gate to be installed at the cemetery. The gate is intended to help stop night- time vandalism there. diverted or delayed. The President entertained a motion to have a poll taken with the current membership to find out if the Chamber of Commerce still supports the bypass. Jim Wilmarth made a motion to poll the members. It was seconded and carried. In the discussion that followed, Director Wilmarth said, "I don't see how the Chamber of Commerce could support the bypass while the present highway serves as the lifeline for several merchants." Wilmarth further stated that he felt tha he poll taken in 1976 should be taken again. The president directed the secretary to send out a poll to he members and follow up with a telephone contact. The 1976 poll for the freeway indicated a 7.4 ratio in favor. In other business, the Board of Directors appointed Chris Wirtz to represent the Sonoma County Harvest Fair Grape Stomp; voted to pay the secretary's expenses to the annual Redwood Empire Association Convention at Konocli in October; agreed to take a stand as a body op- posing the Peripheral Canal through the procedure of a resolution (motion by Pearson, seconded by Wilmarth) ; accepted with regret the resignation of Director Joe Bowman from the board because he would be unavailable for meetings for the next four months; discussed the Chamber's group insurance plan; tabled the budget committee report due to the absence of the treasurer; heard a report of four new businesses coming to Cloverdale; heard a report d the summer tourist center operation including service to well over 7,000 visitors; heard a report from the Mem- bership Committee Chair- man, Pat Snider; received a list of 211 businesses having licenses for the City of Cloverdale; and discussed arrangements for a general membership meeting on October 8; and appointed Janice Corey as a director to replace Joe Bowman on the Board.
