The upgrades will be financed with $116,000 in excess profit earned by Feather River Disposal in 2010. At its April 17 meeting, the- Plumas County Board of Supervisors agreed to an upgrade plan submitted by Public Works. In addition to the transfer station enhancements, some of the FRD over-earnings will be used to sponsor another tire amnesty event in the fall. The $116,000 was the amount FRD earned in excess of the 10 percent profit target it has in its county contract. Public Works Director Bob Perreault outlined a priority list that included $70,000 in upgrades for Chester, $10,000 for East Quincy, $22,641 for future replacement of both transfer stations' floors and $3,500 for the tire amnesty. Perreault said upgrading the Chester transfer station was the top priority. He said the improvements would be done in two phases. The first phase involves relo- cating the recycling service area near the southeast cor- ner of the transfer station building. He said the new recycling area would help solve com- plaints from customers by allowing them to toss their recyclables downward into the top of the bin. Customers currently have to climb stairs to reach the top of the bin. "There will be no more overhead lifting," Perreault said. Phase two of the upgrade will include construction of retaining walls and grading and paving under the com- pactor. The recycling service area will also be graded and paved. "It's going to clean up the area. It's going to make things safer for our customers to come in and dump their recy- clables," said engineer John Kolb, "because they will be able to pull over with their cars right next to the hopper. They can get out, drop their stuff into the hopper, jump back into their car and drive out. It will be just that fast." Improvements at the East Quincy recycling center will be similar to Chester, accord- ing to Perreault. Like Chester, the East Quincy upgrades will include two phases. However, Perreault said there is only enough money to complete the first phase of the East Quincy upgrade. He said that upgrade would include an elevated drive- through area between the ball field and the recycling bin area. All recycling user,s will drive in from Abernathy Lane and exit the site onto South Redberg Avenue. Perreault said the elevated driveway would contain an un- loading area to enable users to safely dispose of recyclables. The second phase of the project, to bggin when funds become available, Would include a new paved and elevated travelway with re: taining walls. The area under the compactor will also be graded and paved. Kolb said the county is optimistic that it will be able to find funding ($65,000) to complete phase two of the East Quincy project. "The first (Chester) project is the only one that is (funded) start to finish for sure," Kolb said. "The second one ... we are optimistic we will be able to do that. But we don't knOw that for sure until we see what the costs are going to be on the first project." Perreault said Public Works decided to use $,3,500 for the tire amnesty program because the state isn't fund- ing the program this year. "The tire amnesty events have been very popular," Perreault said. "This would let us keep our two-per-year cycle going."

League schedules candidate forum in Portola Candidates for supervisor of Plumas County's District 1 'will meet at a forum being held Tuesday, May 8, by the League of Women Voters of Plumas County. The event starts at 6:30 p.m. at the Portola Memorial Hall. Candidates Bill Powers and Michelle Gault will be chal- lenging incumbent Terry Swofford. The three candi- dates will answer questions and provide insights into their positions on local issues. Questions must be submitted in Written form and will be posed by the moderator, a member of the League of Women Voters. Responses and statements by candidates are timed. The general election will be held June 5. The primary ballot has changed and reflects the voter-approved "top two primary." Votes for most of the federal and state offices on the ballot will be counted to determine the top two vote-getters. These candi- dates Will go to the general election in November regard- less of their party affiliation. It does not matter if one candidate receives a majority of the votes cast; the top two vote-getters will always ad- vance to the general election. However, this new procedure does not apply to local elec- tions. Vote-by-mail ballots will be mailed about one month before the election. The local league meets the fourth Tuesday of the month at 6 p.m., usually at the Quincy library. For more information, contact co-presi- dent Joyce Scroggs at 283-0795.
