Plumas County Administrative Officer Jack Ingstad gave some good news to the Board of Supervisors while delivering his annual mid-year budget report on the General Fund at a meeting Tuesday, Dec. 18.
Ingstad told the supervisors that sales tax receipts only fell by $2,000 compared to the numbers at the same time last year, while transient occupancy tax (TOT) revenues actually rose by $56,000.
Feather River College (FRC) trustees heard the bad news during their Jan. 20 meeting: Governor Jerry Brown’s proposed budget had little good news for the cash-strapped college.
While there are currently no proposed mid-year budget cuts, the governor plans to defer payment of $961 million in current appropriations to community colleges until July 2011.
No public apology about the “hate truck” was forthcoming from Business Director Yvonne Bales at the January board meeting of the Plumas Unified School District (PUSD).
Bales had attempted to make a statement before her budget report at the December meeting, but Feather Publishing reporter Mona Hill protested, arguing that such a statement was not on the agenda and therefore violated the Brown Act.
The Plumas County Board of Supervisors formalized its reorganization of local veteran services, folding it into the Public Health Agency, at a Tuesday, Jan. 11, meeting.
Public Health Director Mimi Hall explained the action would add a veteran services administration division to her department.
Predictably, people on both sides of the debate regarding the use of off-highway vehicles (OHV) on the Plumas National Forest (PNF) have appealed the Forest Service’s proposed Travel Management Plan.
The complaints of various counties and OHV user groups have been aired in this paper as the public process has progressed in Plumas County Board of Supervisors meetings and at public workshops held by the PNF.
