Supervisors approve consent agenda

Various department heads had requests approved by the Board of Supervisors at the regular meeting Tuesday, March 17.

Facility services

A contract between Facility Services and Martin Security Systems is not to exceed $5,340 annually and $26,700 over five years.

This contract is for security monitoring for fire and burglary issues for many of the county facilities. The contract has a change in that it consolidates all of the Facility Services alarm monitoring needs into one contract with one vendor.

Probation department

Plumas County Probation Chief Erin Metcalf requested approval for a contract between the department and Dr. Alfredo M. Amezaga Jr.

The contract is for juvenile psychological evaluations. This is a state-mandated procedure and Amezaga has performed these services in the past.

Sheriff’s office

The 2020-2021 boating safety and enforcement financial aid program contract with the sheriff’s office is now in the works,

This program provides funding for the Plumas County Sheriff’s Boating Safety and Enforcement Unit to provide education and information on boating safety, supervise organized water events, provide assistance to water users and enforce state and local laws on the lakes in Plumas, Sheriff Todd Johns explained.

The funding provides a baseline allocation of $132,511 with a county contribution from boat tax revenue in the amount of $27,451. The total for the program is $159,962. The agreement is for July 1 to June 30, 2021.

The boating and safety program was presented to the board as a resolution.

In another request, supervisors approved an amendment to a contract with dentist Dale Harris of Quincy. The original contract was to run April 16, 2019 until April 15, 2020. That date is extended through June 30. This allows all inmate related medical contracts to coincide with the fiscal year.

Health agency

Supervisors approved two requests for Plumas County Public Health Agency Director Andrew Woodruff.

The first is an agreement with Ellis Planning and Associates for $19,980 to assist with developing a strategic plan.

The second is for an agreement with Holly Sisneros for $30,853 to act as a consultant for the Northern Sierra Opioid Safety Coalition through Aug. 31, 2022.

“As the board may recall, there are three pre-requisites for Public Health Accreditation Board approval,” Woodruff explained.

In other requests, Woodruff announced that the senior nutrition program received unanticipated revenue of $152,720 including fixed assets. This brings the county budget in line with The Area Agency on Aging Programs.

Environmental health

Director Jerry Sipe requested approval for an amendment to agreement for the agency to provide professional services to Sierra County.

Services include certified underground storage tank services to Sierra County, which has been done in the past.

The contract increases the amount from $10,147 to $18,942.

Public works

Director Bob Perreault requested an amendment to a professional services agreement dated Oct. 20, 2015 with Bender Rosenthal for right-of-way acquisition services for the Quincy-La Porte Road repair project.

This project is located on the La Porte Road when in February 2017 water overtopped culverts at the Willow Creek crossing. It damaged ditch lines and washed out a travel lane and shoulders on the roadway. The project is federally funded.

On July 15, 2019 the county administrator approved an amendment to the company for $7,510. But additional right-of-way services were needed in the amount of $2,500.
