Plumas County Environmental Health reported late last week that a domestic cat in eastern Plumas County has been treated for plague. Tests to confirm plague are pending from the public health laboratory in Sacramento.

Although plague naturally occurs throughout the mountainous regions of California, this report is the first sign of plague activity in Plumas County in 2011. Plumas County Environmental Health is working with the California Department of Public Health Vector-Borne Disease program and will be monitoring this situation.

A bill signed by Gov. Jerry Brown designed to generate revenue for the state could cost some Plumas County homeowners an extra $150 per year.

Despite objections by lawmakers in rural counties, Brown signed Assembly Bill 29 as part of the state budget deal June 30.

Referred to as the “rural fire tax,” it will impose up to a $150 fire-prevention fee on state residents who live in a state responsibility area (SRA).

Some homes have even had the water shut off for up to three months, and still the bills are not being paid.

For May, about 30 percent of the bills had not been paid by the time June bills went out.
