Tuolumne County Resolution Collaborative

The Superior Court of Tuolumne County had a open meeting to today on December 9th 2009 to discuss the initiation of a mediation program.

Potential Partners could be the courts in Tuolumne and neighboring Counties of Amador & Calaveras, School Districts, Law enforcement, DA Sheriff, community groups.

Funding, grants and the areas of application were discussed in a forum.

Jim W Hildreth, local Sonora mediator, discussed the value in small claims courts, landlord/tenant issues and the potential for merger of the already establised civil mediation panel with Amador & Calaveras County.

A report of the mediation concept will be drafted and presented in early 2009.

The concept was well recieved among partispants.
