redmet ruver ou.eun weanesaay, June 4, zu14 .t/A New city manager adds color to meeting Carolyn Shipp Staff Writer The City Council meeting May 28 could have been mistaken as a congregation of home decorators. The council members picked out paint colors and turf colors and introduced the new head of the household, City Manager Robert Meacher, who started May 27. The council and public at the meeting welcomed the Plumas County resident and former county supervisor. His presence had a : noticeable positive effect on the council and the staff, as !i the meeting was full of !: laughter and smiles. : The public comment portion of the meeting offered a chance for community members to welcome Meacher to the position. "I'm glad to see that we're finally moving forward in a positive way," said Mona Bishop, president of the Eastern Plumas Chamber of Commerce. "I'm glad to see the smiles on everyone's :: faces." Mike Matus, a member of the community interview panel that initially interviewed Meacher, expressed his opinion on the council's decision to hire Meacher over the other candidate. He reported that the council initially made an offer to the other candidate; however, after further discussion the members rescinded their offer. He said he was startled by their action, but after the panel met with the council he felt reassured in their decision. Matus said he could not go into details, but that the decision had to do with "the conduct of the individual during the interviews and negotiations." "Everything we do and everything we did had to do with trying to find the right fit for our city," said Council Member John Larrieu. "I think we found this person. We found a person who has local knowledge, county knowledge and statewide knowledge .... I think he will make an incredible city manager." The introduction Of Meacher was met with applause and a standing ovation from the council. The rest of the meeting was brief. City Finance Officer Susan Scarlett walked the council and the audience through a fund balance presentatio n . It showed the city's budget history since 1998. The main idea she stressed was that the citizens of the city might see relief soon with a few different rates, such as solid waste, after loans and reimbursements came in. However, it wouldn't be until about 2015. Color the city Color was the topic of the night and the South Side Fire Hall is getting a new look. Meacher presented five color schemes to the council that the staff had assembled. In a quick and almost unanimous decision of the council, the yellow and black building will now be brown with grey trim and tan accents. Only Mayor Phil Oels preferred a different color selection. Meacher also presented the council with two pieces of turf, green and beige. He said that Public Works Director Todd Roberts needed an opinion on what color to put in over the landfill. Both the turfs served the same purpose, said Meacher, but the beige might be less appealing to people who might be compelled to use the landfill as a dog park or a driving range. The council chose the beige, upon Meacher's suggestion. 836-1300 Early Bird Special 5pm - 6pm Now Open for Dinner seven nights a week 5pm- ?pm Full Bar Wine List Now serving Lunch Six days a week Tuesday thru Sunday I 1am - 4:30pm Specialty Sandwiches - Best Burger Outdoor Dining .- _fN- 250 Bonta Street, Blairsden I 836-4646 HIGH ALTITUDE Do you love to eat food?
