DATA UPDATES

Investigate mosquito-borne disease referrals within one business day
Through timely investigations of reported mosquito-borne illness, the Vector Control Program reduces the spread of disease by implementing appropriate interventions.  From January through March 100% of referrals received were investigated within one business day. 
Increase Percent of Farmers' Markets accepting Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT)
AWM and HHSA are continuing to partner in promoting the acceptance of EBT at Certified Farmers' Markets (CFMs), focusing on those CFMs adjacent to underserved communities where it makes the most business sense to offer EBT. We are planning to have a second annual USDA Retail Signup Event coupled with the annual Direct Marketing 101 workshop. We are also exploring an awareness outreach pilot focusing on increasing community support and participation for a CFM in or near an underserved community. 
Number of Code Compliance cases closed through June 2018
Residents want a safe, health and thriving community that they can be proud of.  By tracking code compliance cases, we can monitor the impact being made as we resolve issues surrounding graffiti, zoning violations and other public safety and aesthetics concerns and identify areas for improvement. One of our primary objectives is to educate community members about County codes and regulations. We work with and encourage residents to voluntarily resolve compliance issues on their properties.
