The Plumas County Board of Supervisors (BOS) approved a letter at a meeting Tuesday, March 8, inviting other counties “to form a coalition to explore legal and political remedies” to the Forest Service’s new travel management plans.
At the same meeting, Sierra Access Coalition (SAC) Executive Director Corky Lazzarino vowed to challenge the Plumas National Forest’s (PNF) travel management plan in court.
New Plumas County District Attorney (DA) David Hollister explained some of the unique challenges that would be facing his office in the future, during a recent Board of Supervisors meeting.
The DA said new Gov. Jerry Brown supported former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's plan to shift some of the state prison burden back to the counties.
Jonathan Kusel has resigned his seat on the Plumas Office of Education/Plumas Unified School District governing board.
Kusel told his fellow board members, in an e-mail dated March 1, that he was resigning effective immediately.
Continuing the current moratorium on suction dredge mining is the best thing for the environment, says an environmental study released Feb. 28 by the California Department of Fish and Game (DFG).
The next preferable alternative would be to cut the number of suction dredge permits by more than half — from an average of 3,650 over the past 15 years to 1,500 annually — while limiting dredging to 14 days a year for each permit holder and reducing the allowable nozzle size from 8 inches to 4.
