Voters in various pockets of the county weighed in on tax measures and community services district boards in the Nov. 5 election, with varying results.
Clio residents overwhelmingly approved a $95.24 annual tax to pay the Graeagle Fire Protection District for fire protection and basic life support services.
The measure required two-thirds of the vote to pass and received 82.93 percent.
Similarly, the Peninsula Fire Protection District required two-thirds to pass its special tax of $280 per unimproved parcel and $295 per improved parcel, but fell short with 63.08 percent of the vote. The final tally was 258 yes votes to 151 no votes.

The Community Trail at Feather River College is a 1-mile loop trail that takes hikers through an oak woodland and a conifer forest that burned in 1946.
The trail was built in 2006 with Secure Rural Schools money. Funding of $10,000 was allocated by the Plumas County Resource Advisory Committee (RAC) out of the SRS funds.
The trail is the result of a community trail-building class at Feather River College taught by Darrel Jury in fall 2006. Ken Cawley wrote the grant and led a forest thinning project in collaboration with Jury and others.
