June 15, 2011 – The East Quincy Services District took another step in the process of ending its association with the Quincy Community Services District last week.

EQSD’s attorney, Bob Zernich, told the Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo) board, during its June 6 meeting at the Plumas County Courthouse in Quincy, that the decision to end the consolidation effort was simply a matter of money.

“There’s a lot of nonsense in the paper about why we’re doing it,” Zernich told the board. “It has nothing to do with bad feelings or bad karma. It has to do with money.”

Outdoor Recreationists Should Take Precautions Against Cold Temperatures, Swift Currents When in or Near Water

Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) warns outdoor water recreationists to take precautions against cold and swift rivers and streams as the state’s abundant snowpack begins melting faster as temperatures rise.
This year’s deep snowfall and cool spring has left California’s overall snowpack at more than three times its usual water content as of June 1, meaning snowmelt will be more rapid than usual when temperatures rise. In the northern part of the state alone, the snowpack is more than five times its usual June 1 average.
