County cost-cutting move could hurt local business

A plan that could save the county thousands of dollars could end up costing a local business just as much.

When the Sheriffs Office asked the Plumas County Board of Supervisors on March 6 to approve a cheaper way of providing prescription medication for its growing inmate population, the supervisors hesitated.

Then they decided to take a couple weeks to think about it. The Sheriff wants to start buying inmate medications through a pharmaceutical management company instead of getting them directly from Quincy Drug.

Assistant Sheriff Dean Canalia said the switch could save his department a lot of money. Canalia told the supervisors his office spent about $38,000 last year to buy meds for inmates housed at the county detention facility.
