By Supervisor Kathleen Haff, Tuolumne County District 4
The Tuolumne County Board of Supervisors will be convening a workshop in early February 2022 to decide what the goals will be for 2022. Establishing goals helps give our county direction and informs administration of where to put staff resources for the most important priorities.
As the Supervisor for District 4, and a supervisor for the entire county, I can’t fully decide what is most important without YOU and your input! So, I am asking you to weigh in. Here are the goals we had in place for last year:
