High levels of toxic lead paint were discovered in the exterior eaves of the old Armory building in East Quincy now being used as the Plumas County county-wide one-stop recycling center. In an urgency item before the Plumas County Board of Supervisors, a budget transfer for fencing at a cost of $6,000 was approved. The six foot chain link fence will help to protect the public from exposure to the lead based paint. The building was bought by the county in 2005 for $130,000.
