Plumas County’s newest deputy sheriff has been risking his life for his country since the day he graduated from Portola High School in 1996.
The Portola City Council appointed Leslie Tigan the new city manager by a 3-to-1 vote at the last regular meeting of the council June 22.
Council member John Larrieu made the motion to appoint Tigan as interim city manager effective July 1 and continuing until successful negotiation and approval of an employment contract with her. His motion received a second from council member Curt McBride; Mayor Pro Tem Juliana Mark was in agreement and council member William Weaver voted “nay.” Mayor Dan Wilson was absent but had endorsed the plan prior to leaving on vacation.
Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood is reporting a multiple shooting Saturday night at a very remote location in the vicinity of Antelope Lake. Three young men from Lassen County were shot following a vehicle chase by a property owner after an alledged theft attempt.
Faced with more than $800,000 in overruns and accounting errors on the learning resource center construction project, Feather River College trustees voted June 23 to use a special reserve fund to pay for the majority of the unanticipated costs.
The move reduces the special fund, carefully built over many years using Secure Rural Schools money, by nearly half.
