PG&E spokesman Paul Moreno with an update for the power pole replacement at the Spanish Creek Bridge, "PG&E crews have made very good progress and we expect to complete repairs to this line by about 9 p.m. Thursday Oct. 13, and restore power to the 20 customers impacted. We were able to do this work by installing only two new poles. PG&E crews numbering more than a dozen workers installed the new poles and wires."
This should eliminate the need for controlled traffic at the construction site.
Eastern Plumas Health Care’s board held a special meeting Thursday, Oct. 6, to discuss the $348,000 loan to EPHC from the city of Portola.
With board chairwoman Gail McGrath and Janie McBride absent, EPHC board members Larry Fites, Jay Skutt and Lucy Kreth constituted a quorum.
Skutt acknowledged the city “gave a quick response” to EPHC’s petition for financial support. Kreth said, “They stepped out to help us.” Help indeed.
Plumas-Eureka State Park, on the list of state parks to be closed next year because of budget shortfalls, may have new life thanks to the efforts of the volunteer-driven Plumas-Eureka State Park Association.
