Plumas Unified School District’s reserve fund was the subject of discussion, yet again, at the October school board meeting.
That reserve, or “rainy day” fund, is vital to the schools, given their complex finances and dependence on the vagaries of the California state budget. The size of the reserve, which this district’s board has set at 45 percent at the recommendation of district administration, is debatable, however.
The sewer pond that leaked thousands of gallons of effluent into Wolf Creek this summer will be abandoned.
Chief operator Jim Hamblin reported this to directors of the Indian Valley Community Services District Wednesday, Oct. 13.

When Michael Schoff purchased Gold Mountain properties from the bankruptcy trustee in Reno, Nev., last April, many people in the county looked to Schoff as a hero.
Gold Mountain residents looked to Schoff to take over maintenance and responsibility for the golf course and the Nakoma clubhouse and hoped Nakoma's revitalization would slow the loss in their property values.
The County Board of Supervisors allocated Plumas' share of Secure Rural Schools Title III funding at its Tuesday, Oct. 5, meeting.
All the applicants received at least some funding and the board had $133,247 left over at the end.
