After a full day of argument Friday, Oct. 8, in the case of High Sierra Rural Alliance vs. the County of Plumas, Judge Gayle Gwynup thanked both sides for a job well done and said she would probably take the full 90 days to issue her opinion.

The suit challenges county supervisors’ approval in May 2009 of a master plan, planned development permit and environmental impact report for the Feather River Inn project.

The Plumas County Board of Supervisors expressed confusion, exasperation and anger over the fallout from the Forest Service’s recent decision to award a no-bid contract for a fire center at Nervino Airport to a contractor whose nearest office is in Marysville, as part of the Small Business Administration’s 8a program. The 8a program targets “small, minority owned, disadvantaged businesses.”

Some of the supervisors and local contractors argued the Forest Service’s decision was taking money for a project in Plumas County out of the local economy and also significantly limiting the scope of the project.
