A month ago, the board allo- cated the money from the Lake Davis Trust Fund. But, since that time, the county supervisors learned the trust fund contained an available balance of only $30,000 because the other $30,000 already had been granted to Plumas Corp for forestry-related marketing. The predicament, and the need for a remedy, set into motion a debate over how the radio dispatch system should be funded. That resulted in two failed votes, and a little bit of politi- cal wrangling, before the su- pervisors could agree on a plan. Supervisor B.J. Pearson, who wanted some say-so in the decision, was backed by Supervisor Ken Nelson in blocking a remedy proposed by County Administrative Of- ricer Jim Stretch. They were able to stop its passage because four votes rather than three were re- quired to adopt Stretch's plan. Stretch's plan called for the supervisors to move funds from other Lake Davis-related accounts and about $20,000 from contingency funds to meet the objective. But, Pearson did not want to use the Lake Davis funds, since it meant closing a pair of Lake Davis-related accounts. He said he wants an oppor- tunity to evaluate whether the money should be used for an- other purpose before putting it into the county's general fund. Meanwhile, Pearson said he wanted the supervisors to force Plumas Corp to return to the county what it has re- maining from the money it was given--about $15,000-- and use it instead That plan failed by a 1-4 vote after supervisors Bill Denni- son and Robert Meacher de- fended Plumas Corp's use of the money for forestry mar- keting. Specifically, the Plumas Corp funding has focused on educating various agencies about the value of biomass, which is usable leftover tim- ber material. In addition, some of the su- pervisors said they are con- cerned about lingering Lake Davis money, which was allo- cated to Plumas County to re- dress the community for the state's decision to kill pike in the lake by poisoning it. Dennison said decisions about the use of Lake Davis funds "have been a pain in the side" in recent times. Clark noted that "there's been a lot of discussion over the last three years" about the money. But, Pearson said he has been concerned about how Fran Roudebush, his prede- cessor on the board, had allo- cated Lake Davis money. All the supervisors have had to approve the use of Lake Davis money over the years. But, Roudebush was usually allowed to call the shots on the issue since the lake is in what was her district. The third vote, which passed 5-0, was a compromise that allowed Pearson to keep money in the Lake Davis ac- counts and allowed Plumas Corp to keep its remaining $15,000. The result was that about $28,000 in general fund money was transfered to the budget for the radio equipment. Before the vote, the supervi- sors agreed to transfer $49,000 from yet another Lake Davis account, which had been ear- marked for the county's flood control district budget, into the general fund. Dennison called the deci- sion to keep the Lake Davis accounts active "the wrong thing to do." But, Nelson defended Pear- son, saying that the supervi- sor will probably choose to close out the accounts in the near future. The debate also featured a few uneasy moments when Pearson reproached Stretch for not following directions from Clark. To illustrate the issue, Clark asked Stretch to place all the appropriate numbers on a chalkboard inside the boardroom. great service.
