New supervisors begin duties

Two new supervisors took their appointed chairs at the first Plumas County Board of Supervisors’ regular meeting Tuesday, Jan. 5

Representing District 1 is Dwight Ceresola, while Greg Hagwood is representing District 4.

This is the first time the Board of Supervisors has had a full complement of elected officials since the resignation of District 4 Supervisor Michael Sanchez in July 2019. Sanchez cited medical reasons for his resignation.

Since California’s governors, first Jerry Brown and then Gavin Newsom didn’t appoint someone to fill that vacancy, the board has continued to operate for a year-and-a-half with just four members.

While Ceresola remained relatively quiet during his first meeting of the board, retired sheriff Hagwood hit the ground running making numerous comments about proposals.
