News & Current Highlights

Welcome to the newly redesigned Siskiyou County website which went live on March 1, 2014.  It is designed using Drupal, an open source content management system.  Conversion to the new format is an ongoing effort and as department pages are converted to the new format they will be linked.  We welcome comments and suggestions.  Comments may be submitted to the webmaster using the Contact Us form linked on the right under County Key Links.  Every effort is being made to make the site easy to navigate by our visitors.  You will notice that most departments have a Resource Center located on the bottom of their pages.   The Resource Center contains all informational documents and forms issued by a department.  All County forms are also available on the Forms page linked in County Key Links found on the upper right side of every page.

This section of the home page is reserved for topics of current interest; and what is posted here will vary from week to week or season to season.  RFP's and RFQ's will be introduced here as will items such as the current Drought 2014 highlights, burn day status and Box Canyon flow rate.

Drought 2014

In recognition that extreme drought has far-flung consequences, on February 6, 2014 the Siskiyou County Board of Supervisors created a County interdepartmental Drought Task Force. It will be meeting frequently and responding in an appropriate and timely manner to drought-related issues and conditions as they develop. It is important to understand that the County has limited statutory authority and few resources available to directly help relieve drought-related impacts to its citizens. Nonetheless, the County can play an important role in helping its citizens lessen the negative impacts to themselves and their communities.
