Tuesday’s election filled two seats on Portola’s City Council — just in time for the resignation of still another councilmember. Bill Kennedy will resign as of Nov. 11.

In his letter to the council, Kennedy said, “I have very much enjoyed the privilege of serving on the Portola City Council.”

Kennedy and his wife, Helen, the former curator at the Williams House Museum, are moving to McMinnville, Ore., to be closer to their children.

At an October meeting, Plumas County Public Health Director Mimi Hall told the Board of Supervisors her department automatically enrolls children receiving free lunch at schools in MediCal.

Big Creek Road near Bucks Lake now open

Feather Publishing
11/3/2010

Big Creek Road, near Bucks Lake, is now open until snow forces closure for the winter. A slip-out a few years ago caused road realignment away from the top of the bank. The Federal Highway Administration awarded a contract for a retaining wall, drainage improvements and guardrail so the road could be returned to its original alignment.  Paving will occur next summer when temperatures allow; currently there is a gravel section over the new drainage pipe. The completed wall is a wire-and-earth wall called a “mechanically stabilized earth retaining wall.” Photo courtesy Plumas County Public Works
