4B Wednesday, Feb. 4, 2015 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter ra The newly formed Grand Jury Association-Plumas held its first public meeting Jan. 29 in Blairsden at the Mohawk Community Resource Center. President-elect Dennis Doyle gave a PowerPoint presentation on the importance of the Grand Jury and being a Grand Jury member. Only two states have civil grand juries -- California and Nevada -- the rest have criminal grand juries only. The role of a civil grand jury is to investigate county offices, community services districts, special districts, , airports and complaints from citizens. This process takes one full year, similar to having a part-time job. The jurors then collate all the information they have gathered, put those facts into written form with their recommendations, and send it to the presiding judge in n Jury charge of the jury. With the judge's approval, the final report is approved by all members of the jury, then sent off to the printers for publication. The whole process is confidential until the final report is issued. Plumas County District Attorney David Hollister knows the Grand Jury does a thorough job, said association organizers, who reported that he came to the meeting to offer his support for what the Grand Jury Association is doing to aid the Plumas County Superior Court and the residents of Plumas County. Also present were Supervisor Kevin Goss and Supervisor Jeff Engel. Rochelle Ramelli, of Plumas Bank, was also present for the presentation and question/answer period. The association thanks all the residents who attended the first informational on public meeting. Another Grand Jury evening meeting will be held in Quincy during February; the time and place will be determined. Another meeting will be held in Chester or possibly Greenville. The Grand Jury Association members said they thank Audrey Ellis for her work in getting the word out and securing a place to hold its first presentation.
