Two privately owned vehicles were accidentally damaged while routine landscape maintenance was underway at local school sites. The Plumas Unified School District (PUSD) was speedy in its response to covering the damages.

At the July 29 online PUSD meeting, Leslie Edlund, school board president, and Traci Holt, clerk of the board, voted 4-0 with fellow Trustees Dave Keller and Joleen Cline to approve payment for the claims against the district. Trustee Dwight Pierson was unable to attend.

These claims were approved by PUSD Superintendent Terry Oestreich and forwarded by the vote. Each claim was under $500.
