Service districts hope to win grant for new treatment plant study

The Quincy Community Services District agreed to bet a couple hundred dollars for a chance to win $100,000.

“It’s better than buying a lottery ticket,” Quincy board member Ruth Jackson said.

“Yes it is,” said Plumas County Community Action executive director David Keller.

That exchange followed a presentation by Keller outlining steps the American Valley can take to build a new wastewater treatment plant.

Keller said getting the $100,000 in federal grant money could take a couple years, and it would require the Quincy district to work in conjunction with the East Quincy Service District.

The two districts abandoned their consolidation effort a few months ago, but both boards publicly stated they are willing to collaborate efforts to build a new treatment plant.

Keller’s Thursday, March 8, presentation to the Quincy board focused on securing grant money to eventually do a treatment plant feasibility study.
