Board helps send chamber to travel show; Not all supervisors supported the idea

With a 4-1 vote, the Plumas County Board of Supervisors gave $1,000 to the Eastern Plumas Chamber of Commerce to attend the Travel & Adventure Show in Santa Clara scheduled for last weekend.

Because the money was being taken from the county’s contingency fund, it required a four-fifths vote. Supervisors Kevin Goss, Sherrie Thrall, Lori Simpson and Terry Swofford voted in favor of the allocation Feb. 3 after listening to a presentation by Audrey Ellis, the chamber’s chief executive officer, but Jeff Engel voted against the contribution.
