In new jackets with the Sutter County logo, an American flag patch, and with “Sutter County” emblazoned across the back, the five Sutter County Supervisors participated in Monday’s groundbreaking ceremony for the Fifth Street Bridge Replacement Project. The jackets were presented to Board members and County Department Heads in a ceremony involving military veterans belonging to American Legion Post 705 of Yuba City in a ceremony at the Board meeting on January 2.

When Sutter County’s Board of Supervisors participated in Monday’s groundbreaking ceremony for the Fifth Street Bridge Replacement Project, their bright red jackets with a Sutter County logo, an American flag patch, and “Sutter County” emblazoned on the back drew a lot of attention and a few remarks.

“I want one of those Sutter County jackets,” said Assemblyman and former Sutter County Supervisor James Gallagher when he stepped to microphone to talk about the groundbreaking.

The jackets were presented to Board members and County Department heads on January 2, at the request of outgoing Board Chair Jim Whiteaker, as an acknowledgement of the many hours department heads worked during the February emergency situation during his recent term as Board Chair, and for their daily efforts to improve Sutter County.
