A $13.7 million federal grant and another $1.7 million from the state of California will finance new telecommunications infrastructure in Plumas, Sierra and Lassen counties — infrastructure that will bring rural areas into sync with more populated areas.
The grants were awarded to Plumas-Sierra Rural Electric Cooperative (PSREC), a Portola-based electric cooperative with a long history of working to improve the quality of life in the community.
During a closed session prior to a special meeting April 26 of the Portola City Council, the council appointed City Clerk Leslie Tigan as acting city manager, with all the duties and authorizations of the city manager. She will be acting in the stead of current City Manager Jim Murphy, who was not in attendance at the meeting.
