The Plumas County Local Agency Formation Commission voted at its March 15 meeting to approve the "annexation of the Feather River Inn property to the Graeagle Fire Protection District, subject to specified terms and conditions."
The 4 - 1 vote came after an extended series of questions from public member Jim Krantz, who wanted to understand the details of the agreement that would be worked out between the fire district and inn owners, the Schomac Group, LLC.
A structure fire at 3311 Fawn Lane, off Grizzly Road outside of Portola, destroyed the garage and workshop of Bill and Virginia Muckle, 23-year residents.
Incident commander, Fire Chief Greg McCaffrey of Beckwourth Volunteer Fire Department, said the cause of the fire was still under investigation.
Plumas County Community Development Commission Executive Director David Keller recently told his board of commissioners, mostly made up of county supervisors, that Plumas County could be eligible for disaster recovery funds because of the local impacts of the 2008 fire season.
County Clerk Kathy Williams brought the Plumas District Hospital tax cap issue before the Board of Supervisors March 16 as an "urgency item."
She said the resolution passed by the PDH board appointing the county clerk as its elections official and asking that her office inspect voter signatures on the tax limitation initiative and "if proper" certify the petition, had been brought to her attention on the previous Friday - too late to get it on the supervisors' agenda.
The regular meeting of the Plumas County Office of Education is usually pro forma - over and done in 15 minutes. Not so March 9, when Superintendent Glenn Harris and Assistant Superintendent Bruce Williams, who is responsible for personnel matters, presented a resolution of intent to dismiss 5.83 full-time equivalent faculty positions.
