The state’s proposed $150 fee for fire prevention, which has many Plumas County residents burning mad, just got smaller.
On Monday, Aug. 22, the California Board of Forestry approved a maximum $90 fee on rural homeowners.
Rumbling engines, dazzling jewel-toned paint and the hot music of Buzz Barrett Sound Productions will kick off the 26th annual Street Rod Extravaganza Sept. 10 in the Chester Park.
The Lake Almanor Area Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau sponsors the event for entries of 1982 and older stock, modified and special interest cars and trucks along with rat rods and those under construction.
In its last funding cycle, the Plumas County Resource Advisory Committee recommended 14 natural resource projects totaling $386,000. Unless the federal Secure Rural Schools legislation is reauthorized, this will be the final set of RAC projects.
Among the most interesting projects was an $18,500 request from the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship (SBTS) for a motorized trail system on Mount Hough. The project grew out of negotiations between motorized users, represented by the Sierra Access Coalition (SAC), and non-motorized users.
The filing period for the Nov. 8 Uniform District Election has closed, and just one district in Plumas County has contested board seats. A lack of candidates leaves six districts needing to make appointments.
Five candidates will vie for three four-year seats on the East Quincy Community Services District board: former general manager Mary Henrici; incumbents Stephen Grant, Ernest R. Eaton Jr. and Greg Margason; and Michael T. Green, a water/wastewater operator.
“A Grave Occasion” was such a popular event last year that the Plumas County Museum is resurrecting the fundraiser once again Saturday, Sept. 17, from 3 p.m. till dusk at the historic Quincy Cemetery.
