Supervisors will hold interviews for the vacant Plumas County Auditor role during public session because it’s an elected position.
Tuesday, Oct. 2, has been selected as the tentative interview date.
The county has received two applications — one from a local resident and another from an individual who lives “way out of state” according to Supervisor Robert Meacher. That applicant will travel at his or her own expense for the interview.
Supervisor Jon Kennedy questioned the need for job applicants to be a certified public accountant, noting that it eliminated some good candidates for the position.
Kennedy also cautioned his fellow board members about the importance of selecting the best candidate, telling them that “once we put someone in there, that person could be there a long time,” noting that it’s the nature of the position to go unchallenged.
Bus goes to Quincy Fire
The supervisors voted unanimously to approve the transfer of a county transit bus that is no longer in use because of age, mileage and emission standards, to Quincy Fire Protection District.
The bus will be used as an emergency response vehicle to provide support services in the region.
The vote came after all the county’s fire protection district chiefs gave their blessing to the transfer.
General plan nears end
“After four years of working on it, I want it done,” said Planning Director Randy Wilson, of the final phases of the general plan amendment process.
During an update to the Board of Supervisors, Wilson said the environmental documents were about 70 percent complete and would be available for review in the next two to three weeks.
Following certification of the environmental impact report, the general plan update can be approved, then supervisors will address zoning ordinances to ensure compatibility with the new general plan.
