Plumas Rural Services takes over transit operations

    The Plumas County Board of Supervisors approved the county transportation committee’s contract with Plumas Rural Services, making PRS the new provider for Plumas Transit.

    A committee made up of BOS chairwoman and transportation committee member Sherrie Thrall, another transportation commissioner, and Assistant Director of Public Works Marty Byrne selected PRS as the winning bidder.  

 

The full commission endorsed the committee’s recommendation.

    At a Tuesday, June 15, BOS meeting, Quincy Supervisor Lori Simpson asked Public Works Director Robert Perreault about the contract cost.

    Perreault said it was slightly higher than the previous one but within budget.

    Simpson said she would have liked to see the numbers.

    Indian Valley and Feather River Canyon Supervisor Robert Meacher said the transportation commission controlled its own money, which just passed through the county in a bureaucratic manner.

    He said that meant the BOS approval was “more of a formality.”

    Perreault said he would send information on the contract’s cost to the board members who weren’t members of the commission.

    Thrall said she was pleased that “for the most part they are retaining all of the current employees and doing business pretty much exactly the same way that they’ve been doing, which we’ve been happy with.”

    Perreault commended Byrne for getting a new contractor in line with only 90 days’ notice from the previous contractor that it wouldn’t be continuing into the next fiscal year.

    He also noted that the new contract called for 150 days’ notice on any change so it would be easier next time.
