Plumas supervisors to meet June 20

The Plumas County Board of Supervisors will meet this Tuesday, June 20 to honor a fire chief, deny themselves a cost-of-living raise, appoint an interim zoning administrator and more.

The meeting gets underway at 10 a.m. providing an opportunity for the public to comment on items that are not on the agenda. There is also a chance for department heads to address the board.

Then the board is slated to honor Quincy Fire Chief Robbie Cassou for his years of dedicated service to the department and the citizens of Plumas County as he retires from the position.

The board will receive updates from the Dixie Fire Collaborative and the Forest Service.


Supervisors will consider a number of agenda items, including the authorization to hire three county employees, and various service agreements.

The board members are entitled to an annual cost of living adjustment, but have unanimously asked to forego the pay hike this year. They are scheduled to vote on the issue.

The supervisors will also discuss amendments to the contract with Municipal Resource Group, the entity that was hired to look into complaints in two county offices, as well as investigate why employees are leaving the Sheriff’s Office. This matter has proven to be contentious in the past.

County Administrative Officer Debra Lucero will give her regular report as well as a presentation on the American Rescue Act Plan and the Community Grant Program in Plumas County.

The next meeting of the Plumas County Board of Supervisors is a special meeting scheduled for Friday, June 30.

Meetings are held in person on the third floor of the county courthouse and are also live streamed through the county website or available via zoom.  A copy of the agenda is available on the county’s website.
