4A Wednesday, March 11, 2015 Feather River Bulletin BOARD: District/00ttorney's Office receives grant money from page 1A $220,000 for each of the next three years to his department. "These funds will be used to assist rural Plumas County criminal justice partners to enhance public safety, foster collaboration and improve the outcomes of individuals under supervision of community corrections," Hollister wrote in a memo to the board. Because it was unanticipated revenue the supervisors had to approve receipt of the funds, as well as how the district attorney plans to allocate the money. Hollister will transfer $76,833 to the sherLfI's department to fund an investigator, and a nearly like amount will fund an additional case manager for the alternative sentencing program, which now serves approximately 120 individuals. "This will allow us to meet the demands of Superior Court," Hollister said of the case manager. The remainder is divided over a number of expenditures, with the largest amount ($24,000) going toward software that would allow the courts, the district attorney and sheriff to share information. Supervisor Lori Simpson complimented Hollister on successfully applying for the grant. Roof replaced Facilities Director Deny Sawchuk received authorization to pay a $44,430 invoice to replace the roof at the Chester Complex damaged in last month's storm. The repair will be covered by insurance, but to ensure a timely payment to the contractor, the supervisors will take the money from the county's contingency fund. When asked whether the project had been put out to bid, county counsel said that the "bidding process can be bypassed due to the emergency situation." However, the roof for the armory, which was also damaged by the wind, has been put out to bid because the building is not inhabited. "I've gathered up prices from several roofing companies," Sawchuk said. Funding still available The supervisors did not allocate $78,000 of its Title III discretionary funding to the Plumas County Fire Safe Council as requested. "The last time the Fire Safe Council came forward, we determined that they had a stockpile of money," Supervisor Sherrie Thrall said. "I agree they do great work.., but there may be somebody who needs the money right now." Supervisor Terry Swofford made a motion that the opportunity be re-advertised, which passed unanimously. The council had planned to use a portion of the money to maintain the council's website and for Plumas Corporation's administration services, but the bulk had been earmarked to pay for a contract coordinator and resource specialists as needed. Still a drought The supervisors originally voted to declare a local emergency due to drought Aug. 19, 2014. As required by the California Emergency Services Act, such a declaration must be renewed monthly. The board again extended the declaration at the request of Jerry Sipe, the county's ,Office of Emergency Services director. New faces Public Works Director Bob Perreault introduced Damien Frank, the department's nev ffmancial officer, to the board. Frank will succeed Phyllis Taddei, who will have been with the department for 34 years when she retires June 1. Frank had worked at the public works department in San MateD since 2002, and was the fiscal officer for the past eight years. He has relocated to Quincy with his wife and three school-age children. The board appointed Jim Roberti to replace Byrd Harrison on the Sierra Valley Groundwater Management District. PDH, from page 1A hospital's long-term plans. He praised the local group Community ConnectiOns for stepping forward to help the elderly. Kepple also addressed the changes that were occurring on the hospital campus, officially the Plumas Rural Health Center, with improvements to its two medical clinic buildings and the shuffling of some offices to make the best use of space. Kepple reported that the center's new dentist, Dr. Shannika Dao, is accepting new patients. In addition to new personnel, the hospital is acquiring a new colonoscopy and upper endoscopy system. Kepple complimented Telles on negotiating a good price on the state-of-the art technology. "I'm very committed to our hospital staying up to date," Kepple said and discussed the procurement of automated medication dispensing units, which he described as kind of like "the red boxes for videos," which would improve patient safety and integrate with the electronic medical records system. Progress is also being made on the adopt-a-room program, and Kepple has set a target to have eight patient rooms and the delivery room completed by the end of the year. Director John Kimmell suggested that the $17,500-per-room price could be too much for an individual family, and said it could be suggested that three families join together to sponsor a room.
