  • The trout must go: The state is planning to pull all of the brook trout out of a Plumas County lake in order to protect the yellow-legged frog.
  • Inspections delayed: Cal Fire was scheduled to begin property inspections this week, but decided to wait until the public could better understand what the inspectors are doing.

Deputy’s appeal fails

    Former Plumas County Deputy Jeff Bergstrand’s effort to challenge his termination, which originally occurred in 2008, has come to an unsuccessful end.   

When asked whether the grievance process had concluded, Acting Plumas County Counsel Brian Morris indicated, “In the county’s view this matter is closed.”

    He explained, “When a public employee is terminated they have certain rights to appeal a termination,” and in this situation “any rights to review or appeal the termination have been exhausted.”

 

    When asked if a public record request could be made for a settlement document in the Bergstrand matter, Morris responded there wasn’t a settlement document or anything like that in this case.

    Essentially that means Bergstrand didn’t win his appeal and his separation from county employment remains in effect.
