Expect a crowded room this Tuesday morning, July 11, as supporters of Dame Shirley Plaza are expected to address the Plumas County Board of Supervisors during public comment session. The meeting gets underway at 10 a.m. in the board’s third floor chambers at the courthouse.
Friends of Dame Shirley members and others plan to address the board about their desire for Dame Shirley Plaza to remain a park and not become the site for a courthouse that is to be built by the state. The current courthouse, which is county owned, would continue to be home for many county departments.
Public comment is held at the beginning of the meeting and is then followed by the rest of the board’s agenda. Tomorrow’s agenda contains many items, as the board did not meet last week due to the Fourth of July holiday.
Following is a sampling of what the board will consider:
- Several contracts for Public Health
- Two positions – one for the Road Department and one for the Animal Shelter
- Small business assistance for the Dragonfly Café
- Plumas County employee pay schedule
- Three special elections: Prattville-Almanor Fire Protection District, Plumas Eureka Community Services District and the Chester Public Utility District
- Four ten-hour workdays for Public Health
- Three vehicles for Behavioral Health
- Public hearings for revised fee schedule for solid waste services
- Resignation of the Clerk to the Board
- Partnership with United Way for 2-1-1 service
- Sara James as Interim County Counsel
