By Coatlm Managing Editor New equipment, not person- nel, will help the Plumas County Public Works Depart- ment complete its projects this year. The board of supervisors ap- proved Public Works Director Tom Hunter's request to pur- chase a hand-held data collec- tor to assist with surveying. Hunter said the device, which captures data that can be fed directly into a computer, would be the "best solution and save employees' time." Hunter said the $10,000 de- vice will allow employees to capture ten times the amount of data they are able to now, enabling them to stay in the field longer. It will be used to collect, plot and help design for the many projects the road de- partment plans to accomplish this year. Because the device is six months old, Hunter was able to save $2,000. Road Hunter also received permis- sion to lower the posted speed on Sloat Road from 45 mph to 35 mph. Hunter said he made the change at the request of Supervisor Don Clark. Clark said he had received complaints from some of his constituents in the area that people were driving too fast, so he drove the road to see for himself. "That is a very difficult road to drive at 45 mph," Clark said. Hunter used a radar gun to check the speed of motorists and determined that 35 mph is the 85th percentile of the speed driven. Though the residents want a lower speed limit, they do not want it enforced by radar. m commun Supervisor Don Clark allo- working on behalf Of the Lake cated his most recent commu- Almanor Business and Indus- nity service fund expenditures try Development Council, to to students.
