The Plumas County Board of Supervisors agreed with the Grand Jury Report’s sense of urgency on the topic of county fire protection but didn’t seem to agree with many of the Grand Jury’s suggested solutions.
The Grand Jury said it didn’t “presume to know exactly what action must be taken,” but that didn’t stop it from making very specific recommendations at times.
After all the questions were answered at the City Council candidates’ forum last week, League of Women Voters moderator Lori Simpson thanked the candidates and commented, “That was a very pleasant experience.”
And so it was. The three candidates — John Larrieu, Curt McBride and Juliana Mark — were very much in agreement, and more likely to expand on one another’s responses than refute them.
The Plumas County Board of Supervisors expressed confusion, exasperation and anger over the fallout from the Forest Service’s recent decision to award a no-bid contract for a fire center at Nervino Airport to a contractor whose nearest office is in Marysville, as part of the Small Business Administration’s 8a program. The 8a program targets “small, minority owned, disadvantaged businesses.”
Some of the supervisors and local contractors argued the Forest Service’s decision was taking money for a project in Plumas County out of the local economy and also significantly limiting the scope of the project.

At the end of a recent political forum, supervisor candidate Dick Lundy referred to “hundreds” of “missing” ballots in the June primary election. The comment followed several weeks of rumors, phone calls, e-mails and letters alleging a number of mail ballots were not counted. Those allegations carried with them the suggestion that Lundy would not be in a run-off election with J.P. Kennedy if all the ballots had been counted.
