Supervisors approve hiring, grant funds in consent agenda
Three vacancies within Plumas County departments, and grant funding were among the consent agenda items approved by members of the Plumas County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday, Nov. 19.
No discussion took place among supervisors.
Department of Facilities Services Director Kevin Correira requested permission to apply for a state Off-Highway grant.
The grant has been in place for several years, Correira said. “The newest language that the state has for their application language no longer matches our resolution,” Correira explained.
Therefore Facility Services was asked to amend the resolution in order to continue to be eligible for grant funding.
A vacancy for an employment and training worker position is available at the Department of Social Services.
Department Director Neal Caiazzo requested that supervisors allow him to recruit for the position.
Caiazzo said the vacancy was filled, but then the successful applicant decided to move back to her previous position in the eligibility unit.
Staff working in the vacancy area are responsible for determining initial and continuing eligibility for CalWORKs’ cash assistance and for providing Welfare to Work case management services.
The position is one of three in the department for that type of service.
Social Services is also looking for a social worker for the child protective services program.
The position became vacant in mid-September when the incumbent left county employment, Caiazzo explained.
Department of Public Works Director Bob Perreault also announced a vacancy for a maintenance worker position in Quincy.
The previous worker resigned effective Nov. 22, Perreault explained.
