The California Highway Patrol is committed to improving its relationship with Plumas County drivers.
CHP’s Quincy Area Commander Bruce Carpenter, with support and direction from his supervisors all the way up the chain to Sacramento, has guaranteed that people are going to notice a difference.
Although neither the water/sewer rate increase nor the proposed recall of Portola Mayor Dan Wilson was on the Aug. 10 agenda, discussion of the two topics took up nearly half the meeting.
The public comment period provided the community an avenue for feedback on recent events. Community member Pam Gill led: “What will be the cost to the city and to the citizens of Portola if a recall is enacted and a special election follows?”
Plumas County has a balanced budget. And just about everyone in the county will be affected by the cuts it contains.
After weeks of slashing and debate, the Board of Supervisors agreed on a budget laced with cuts and closures during its Tuesday, Aug. 16, meeting.
The budget’s impact will be far-reaching.
The Plumas Business and Career Network is excited to announce free technical assistance training for Plumas County entrepreneurs and small businesses. This training is being offered through four Economic Gardening workshops that are designed to meet the expressed needs of Plumas businesses.
According to Jan Prichard, business service representative at the Business and Career Network in Quincy, “Economic Gardening is the concept of growing businesses within the local community rather than looking to relocate an existing company. Small, local companies are the source of new jobs and wealth, and communities should work to create nurturing environments for these companies.”
Multiple agencies responded to a big rig accident and wildland fire in the Feather River Canyon late Wednesday afternoon.
At approximately 5 p.m. Jose Morales, 28, was driving a 2008 Peterbilt truck westbound on Highway 70 in the Feather River Canyon. According to the California Highway Patrol report, Morales said that a sedan passed him over double yellow lines west of the Grizzly Dome tunnel. Morales allowed the truck, which was towing a flatbed trailer loaded with lumber, to drift onto the shoulder to make room for the sedan, but in the process, he lost control.
