Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Feb. 25, 2015 7A Dickson Realty sponsors chamber Ann Powers Staff Writer The resurgence buzz in Plumas County appears to be getting louder and louder as area businesses make their presence known more and more. With luxury home sales making a comeback, major developments taking place, corporate relocation on the horizon and community support f'mding new life, Dickson Realty is the latest local entity to make a significant contribution to the Eastern Plumas Chamber of Commerce. Chamber officials announced a $5,000 "ranger" level sponsorship agreement with Dickson this month. The annual partnership supports EPCC programs and offers the real estate company messaging services, advertising, referrals, recognition on the Lost Sierra Rec and Tech website and more. The contract works in unison with a $10,000 sponsorship from Nakoma Goif Resort and Spa made last month. "In partnering with the chamber these local businesses are supporting the community, tourism and economic development," said EPCC Executive Director Audrey Ellis. Dickson representatives said backing the chamber is essential for economic rejuvenation throughout the region. "The sponsorship from both Nakoma and Dickson Realty shows a true sense of commitment to our community, its chamber and all the things the chamber does to enhance business, economic growth and fellowship within the business community," said Chris David, Dickson's broker-associate manager in Graeagle. "With sponsorships of this magnitude our chamber can focus on future endeavors to bring additional interest and business to our tourism-based community." Some of the other area groups supporting EPCC's efforts include the city of Portola, the county Board of Supervisors, Howling Dogs Bike and Ski, Plumas-Sierra Rural Electric Cooperative and Plumas-Sierra Telecommunications. EPCC is a nonprofit corporation focused on improving the area's economic, health and education environment, according to Ellis. "We strive to develop, encourage, promote and protect the general economic and tourism interests of the Eastern Plumas area," she said. Dickson Realty provides real estate services throughout the northern regions of California and Nevada.

The two vehicles with cages, which are used to transport mental health patients to the hospital or to facilities out of the area, were to replace vehicles that are no longer operational. "This would severely impact our operation," Livingston told the board. The department has been borrowing a caged vehicle from the Probation Department, but if it's in use or if a second patient needs to be transported, the department has had to call on the sheriffs department for transport. "Then we're criticized for not providing mental health services," a clearly frustrated Simpson said, "and this vote just failed." Livingston suggested splitting the request in half and sI(d for approval of the two caged vehicles, which the board unanimously approved. After the request was approved, Thrall suggested that the department should have included the vehicles in its budget last summer. "We were asked for a status quo budget," Livingston responded. The board also discussed the need to auction off or dispose of the vehicles that are being replaced so that they aren't clogging available parking. "Even if they're only worth 100 bucks it's better than having spider webs growing around the tires," Thrall said. Too many commissioners The Plumas County Mental Health Commission, an advisory body to the department and the Board of Supervisors, is composed of 20 members. "It doesn't run very well and work isn't being accomplished," said Supervisor Lori Simpson, who is the board's representative on the commission. "It's been frustrating." With 20 members, it takes 11 to make a quorum. Louise Steenkamp, the director of Alcohol and Other Drugs, agreed with Simpson. "Having 20 voting members is unwieldy," she said and added that the Kemper Report also recommended reducing the number of commissioners. The Kemper Report was a comprehensive study of the Mental Health Department commissioned by the supervisors. Simpson asked that the membership be changed to 11 members. "I ask the board to please support me," she told her fellow supervisors. Tracy Ingle, a member of the commission, asked the board to wait and give the commission time to make I its own recommendation. "I would ask the board to give it a little more time," she said. "I have a problem waiting," Simpson said and made a motion. But the agenda item was not listed as an action item; rather, it was to be a discussion with direction to staff if necessary, so County Counsel Craig Settlemire advised the board to follow the item as defined. "I'm strongly for what Lori is trying to accomplish here," Board Chairman Kevin Goss said sternly. "It's time to get it done." The item has been rescheduled as an action item for the March 3 meeting.
