new digs for Community solutions

Director John Banks tells us he has relocated his East Quincy offices for Plumas Sierra Community Solutions. The simple move was within the same building but has resulted in more than twice the amount of space. The address is 2288 E. Main St., suite F-4 and is right across the street from Madden Plumbing. His company, with additional offices in Portola, Greenville and Chester, provides the court-mandated classes for anyone convicted of driving under the influence of either drugs or alcohol or those needing the wet/reckless program course.
