The Plumas County Board of Supervisors meeting scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 1 should be interesting. Topping the seven-page agenda is the much-anticipated discussion on Dame Shirley Plaza and whether the board will pursue selling the land to the state to facilitate a new courthouse.
Board Chairman Greg Hagwood said the item has been scheduled for the beginning of the meeting, following public comment and a couple of reports, to accommodate the number of people that are expected to speak.
But Dame Shirley Plaza isn’t the only potentially controversial issue: the Eastern Plumas Fire Protection District and the Grizzly Lake Resort Improvement District are also expected to generate interest. They are scheduled toward the end of the meeting.
Under appointments, the board is expected to make Sharon Sousa the county’s behavioral health director, and appoint a clerk of the board, following Heidi White’s resignation.
There are 21 items on the consent agenda including recruiting and filling two positions in public health, tree services, psychological evaluations for probation, grant funds, agreements with medical providers, inmate monitoring and three contracts between Social Services and the Plumas Crisis Intervention and Resource Center not to exceed $648,000.
The board will also discuss the Engie Feasibility Study that was presented in July, among other topics.
The board meeting gets underway at 10 a.m. in the third-floor boardroom of the courthouse. It can also be accessed via zoom and viewed online at the county’s website: https://www.plumascounty.us/2442/Agendas-and-Minutes
