Beginning March 31, Plumas County Library patrons will be able to order Zip Books at their local branch library in Quincy, Chester, Greenville or Portola.
Zip Books is a statewide project designed to employ an interlibrary loan service alternative. Currently, to receive a requested book from another library through interlibrary loan, a patron agrees to pay $3 to cover the library’s shipping expenses. Then the book is ordered and delivered to the library, thus taking approximately four – six weeks for the book to get to the patron.
Approximately $1.2 million in grant awards for projects that reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfire and improve forest health was recently approved by the Sierra Nevada Conservancy’s governing board during its quarterly meeting in Sacramento. The funding is from Proposition 84, passed by voters in 2006.
“These projects improve forest and watershed health and help protect communities from catastrophic wildfire in the Sierra Nevada,” said SNC Executive Officer Jim Branham. “As the region where more than 60 percent of California’s developed water supply originates, this helps all Californians.”
To assist special district board members with meeting the California state biannual mandate for ethics training, the Plumas County Special Districts Association hosted a workshop Saturday, March 9, in the Quincy library conference room.
In attendance were a large number of board members, chief executive officers and general managers from recreation, water, fire and hospital districts across Plumas County.
From listening to a Clio resident complain that his power had been turned off, to allocating $1,000 to entice young people to become entrepreneurs, the Plumas Board of Supervisors covered an array of topics during its March 11 meeting.
Josh Hart announced that Plumas-Sierra Rural Electric Cooperative turned off his power because he refused to pay additional charges on his electrical bill for an analog meter.
The March 12 Portola City Council meeting was a time to set the record straight for Bob Marshall, general manager of Plumas-Sierra Rural Electric Cooperative, and for Council Member Pat Morton.
Both individuals addressed allegations against them during the meeting.
