Sheriff blasts board on cuts

Sheriff wants to restructure department in wake of budget cuts

The Plumas County sheriff said budget cuts will force him to lay off and demote employees.

Hagwood’s request was expected to spark more debate over interpretations of the sheriff’s department’s “complicated” funding sources.
