300 weighed in on how Plumas County should spend COVID money

The Plumas County Board of Supervisors asked its citizens how they would like to see $3.6 million in COVID relief money spent and 300 responded.

The supervisors are poised to discuss the expenditures during their Jan. 18 board meeting.

President Joe Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) on March 11 to address public health and economic impacts caused by the COVID-19 pandemic; $3.6 million was allocated to Plumas.

Plumas residents were given nine options to prioritize in terms of spending, as well as the opportunity to come up with some of their own ideas. Of the nine options presented, citizens placed the highest priority on expanding broadband services, supporting local businesses and expanding the county’s mental health services.

County Administrator Gabried Hydrick shared the results of the survey, which can be viewed below.
