Allman Urges Supes On Mental Health Facility Location

Sheriff Tom Allman is advising the Mendocino County Board of Supervisors to talk with their constituents about the proposed locations for the mental health treatment facility. Allman provided updates on the Mental Health Treatment Act Citizen’s Oversight Committee during the Board of Supervisors meeting this week. One of the proposals is to rehabiliate the old Howard Hospital in Willits to use as the mental health treatment facility, but there has been pushback from residents in the community. Allman says a decision on the location of the facility will need to be made soon.
