The California Highway Patrol has been on a campaign to improve its relations with Plumas County residents.
Responding to years of public complaints about over-aggressive tactics by CHP officers, Quincy Area Commander Bruce Carpenter has invited public input.
The commander has held three meetings with local officials and business owners since July 15. He said he plans to conduct a townhall style meeting with the public in the near future.
The Schomac Group Inc., owner of the Feather River Inn in Eastern Plumas County, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in an Arizona court — a move likely to resonate throughout the county.
The Tucson-based company, controlled by the Schoff family, owes the Plumas County Tax Collector and nearly a dozen Plumas and Sierra county businesses.
The state’s proposed $150 fee for fire prevention, which has many Plumas County residents burning mad, just got smaller.
On Monday, Aug. 22, the California Board of Forestry approved a maximum $90 fee on rural homeowners.
Rumbling engines, dazzling jewel-toned paint and the hot music of Buzz Barrett Sound Productions will kick off the 26th annual Street Rod Extravaganza Sept. 10 in the Chester Park.
The Lake Almanor Area Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau sponsors the event for entries of 1982 and older stock, modified and special interest cars and trucks along with rat rods and those under construction.
In its last funding cycle, the Plumas County Resource Advisory Committee recommended 14 natural resource projects totaling $386,000. Unless the federal Secure Rural Schools legislation is reauthorized, this will be the final set of RAC projects.
Among the most interesting projects was an $18,500 request from the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship (SBTS) for a motorized trail system on Mount Hough. The project grew out of negotiations between motorized users, represented by the Sierra Access Coalition (SAC), and non-motorized users.
