Plumas County Environmental Health is working with the California Department of Public Health Vector-Borne Disease program and will be monitoring this situation.
A bill signed by Gov. Jerry Brown designed to generate revenue for the state could cost some Plumas County homeowners an extra $150 per year.
Despite objections by lawmakers in rural counties, Brown signed Assembly Bill 29 as part of the state budget deal June 30.
