Sentinel staff report–
Sacramento County Supervisor Sue Frost will hold her first Citrus Heights community meeting of the year at city hall on Jan. 18 at 6 p.m., where she will give an update to residents on county issues and answer questions from the community.

The supervisor previously held her community meetings on Friday mornings at the Citrus Heights Denny’s on Sunrise Boulevard until the restaurant abruptly closed last summer and the venue was changed to Coco’s restaurant on Madison Avenue. The venue and times were changed for 2018 due to increasing attendance and requests from residents for an evening meeting time, according to Matt Hedges, the supervisor’s chief of staff.

Frost, who previously served on the Citrus Heights city council until being elected as supervisor for District 4 in 2016, had pledged to continue the tradition of “community cabinet meetings” set by former supervisor Roberta MacGlashan, who typically held about 10 meetings throughout the year at Denny’s in Citrus Heights. The meetings are used to inform constituents of current issues at the county level, as well as address questions from attendees on topics that have ranged from budget issues to homelessness and crime.

Frost’s calendar for 2018 includes 25 meetings held in five different communities she represents on the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors, including Rio Linda, Orangevale, Antelope, and Folsom. Her Citrus Heights meetings will be held at city hall on the third Thursday of the month at 6 p.m., during the months of January, March, May, September and November.

As part of her community engagement plan, Frost also writes a monthly column that is submitted to newspapers in the region. Her past columns have been featured on The Sentinel and address topics including homelessness, police body cameras, and the county budget.

Community Cabinet Meeting, District 4
6 p.m. on Jan. 18, 2018
