Feather River Bulletin legal notices for the week of 4/9/2014
Plumas-Sierra Rural Electric Cooperative will be conducting inspections of its facilities throughout 2014. Specific vegetation management projects planned within the timbered portions of its service area include but are not limited to, Chandler Road, the Cromberg area, Spring Garden area, Graeagle, and Calpine. We will also be inspecting for trees and other vegetation in proximity to the power lines as required by the California Public Resource Code Section 4293. Trees that come in contact with power lines are a major cause of outages on our system. PSREC strives to strike a healthy balance between our appreciation for trees and our obligation to provide safe, reliable electric service. Through our tree trimming program, we redirect tree growth away from power lines and remove any damaged or diseased trees so we can limit potential damage to the power lines which could be caused by extreme weather conditions. If a tree grows too fast or if its proximity to power lines is a threat to our electric system, our experts will trim the growth away from our equipment. Our vegetation management is conducted following best management practices defined in ANSI A300 Part 7 (ANSI 2012) and the ISA companion publication to the ANSI A300 Standards (ISA 2007).
Currently PSREC is doing a comprehensive mapping/inspection project that encompasses the entire service area. These inspections are part of our ongoing work to provide our members with safe, reliable electric service. We will be inspecting electrical equipment as required by California General Orders 95 and 128 and determining the location and condition of our infrastructure. PSREC personnel require access to all of its facilities including meters. PSREC employees will have company ID with them.

ORDINANCE NO. 14-1094
AN ORDINANCE OF THE COUNTY OF PLUMAS, STATE OF CALIFORNIA, ADDING ARTICLE 13, TO CHAPTER 4 OF TITLE 2 OF THE PLUMAS COUNTY CODE RELATING TO THE OFFICE OF CHIEF PROBATION OFFICER.
The Board of Supervisors of the County of Plumas, State of California, ordains as follows:
SECTION 1. The Board of Supervisors finds as follows:
a. Section 270 of the Welfare and Institutions Code establishes the office of probation officer in each county of the State of California (the "juvenile probation officer"). Section 1203.5 of the Penal Code creates the office of adult probation officer and provides that the probation officer appointed in accordance with Chapter 2 (commencing with Section 200) of Division 2 of Part I of the Welfare and Institutions Code shall be the ex officio adult probation officer.
b. Prior to the adoption of this Ordinance, the juvenile probation officer of the County of Plumas has been appointed by the judge of the juvenile court for the County of Plumas.
c. The County of Plumas has established a merit system governing the methods of appointment and tenure of office of probation officers, assistant probation officers, and other employees of the Plumas County Probation Department as is evidenced by Section 2-5.101 of the Plumas County Code and the Classification Plan, Salary Plan, and Personnel Rules of Plumas County enacted in accordance with that section. As a result of the establishment of such a merit system, the appointment and tenure of Plumas County probation officers is now the duty and responsibility of the Board of Supervisors rather than the judge of the juvenile court.
SECTION 2. Article 13 is added to Chapter 4 of Title 2 of the Plumas County Code to read as follows:
Article 13. Chief Probation Officer
Section 2-4.1301 Chief Probation Officer.
Pursuant to the provisions of Welfare and Institutions Code section 271, the position of Chief Probation Officer is deemed a County officer who shall be appointed by the Board. Pursuant to Penal Code section 1203.5, the Chief Probation Officer shall be the ex officio adult probation officer.
SECTION 3. Effective and Operative Dates; Publication; Codification.
This ordinance shall become effective thirty (30) days after its date of final adoption. It shall be published in the Feather River Bulletin, a newspaper of general circulation in Plumas County, within fifteen (15) days of final adoption. Section 2 of this ordinance shall be codified; the remainder shall be uncodified.
Introduced at a regular meeting of the Board of Supervisors on the 18th day of March 2014, and passed and adopted by the Board of Supervisors of the County of Plumas, State of California, on the 1st day of April 2014, by the following vote:
