By a 3-2 vote, the East Quincy Services District (EQSD) voted Tuesday, May 10, to officially end the consolidation process with the Quincy Community Services District (QCSD).
The decision by EQSD, which will be presented to the Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo) in resolution form, effectively ends the 16-year consolidation effort by Quincy’s two service districts.
Despite the inevitable outcome, classified staff and students at Feather River College packed the college district’s board of trustees meeting Tuesday, May 10, to ask the board of trustees for consideration.
On the agenda was a resolution to eliminate 5.23 full-time equivalency (FTE) classified staff positions and 1.5 FTE management positions.
Plumas County’s only state park, Plumas-Eureka State Park (PESP), is on the list of 70 parks to be closed for the next two fiscal years, California State Parks (CSP) announced Friday, May 13.
The PESP closure is unlikely to have much of an effect this summer because a scheduled hazardous materials cleanup meant most facilities would be closed anyway, said Matt Green, acting district superintendent for the park agency’s Sierra District.
Plumas County supervisors have weighed in on the California Department of Fish and Game’s draft environmental review of its suction dredge mining program. The last day to comment on the impact report was May 10. The supervisors approved a letter to DFG at their May 3 meeting.
DFG released its draft subsequent environmental impact report Feb. 28. The study concluded that continuing the current moratorium on suction dredge mining was the best thing for the environment.
“I’ve done a lot of legwork this morning in talking with the principal and Superintendent Glenn Harris,” parent Thor Schaefer said May 12.
He said his efforts were a direct result of a complaint he would be filing about Bibles being handed out on what he witnessed as school district property.
In the context of his complaint he relayed that he had observed three people handing out Bibles to kids, including his daughter, as they exited Chester High School.
