4A Wednesday, June 23, 2010 Feather River Bulletin Talk of fitness center's future Effective July 1, Feather River College is assuming re- sponsibility for management and daily operations of the Feather River Fitness and Recreation facility. The col- lege is leasing the operation from the FRC Foundation, which has owned and operat- ed the facility for the past eight years. To help make it a smooth tran- sition, a group of local citizens has agreed to help with this process. They are holding a com- munity forum at the Plumas Bank Administration building, 32 Central Ave. (behind Safe- way), June 30, at 5:30 p.m. The advisory group said the meeting is open to anyone in- terested in helping shape the future of the facility so it can better serve the needs of the community. The group said it hopes to gather more suggestions and ideas about equipment and fa- cility issues, as well as class offerings and schedules. FRC Athletic Director Mer- le Trueblood has beefl given long-term oversight responsi- bility for the business and will also be at this meeting to share the college's plans for upgrades and changes to the operation. For more information con- tact any one of the members serving on this newly formed Community Relations Adviso- ry Committee: Lori Beeson, Sarena Barker, Kim Kudick, Mike Taborski, Nick Boyd, Zona Morgan and certified aerobic instructors Clare Churchill and Leslie Mikesell. Those interested in serving on this steering committee should call Trueblood at FRC, 283-0202, ext. 295. The fitness center will be closed for repairs, painting and extensive cleaning July 1- 11.

The final budget differs from the proposed budget by not a single penny. Some residual business exists, how- ever, in payments to former Executive Director John Gul- lixson. Even these, though, are relatively small, amount- ing to $19,000 for health insur- ance coverage and retire- ment, The most notable difference was a positive one: the total budget fell from $246.240.63 in 2009-10 to $146,765 for 2010-11. Board member and county su- pervisor Terry Swofford said, "I'm happy to see it's consid- erably lower than in past years." Open public comment was completely silent, and the budget passed by a unani- mous vote. Benoit also reported revi- sions and amendments to the schedule of filing and process- ing fees/deposits for LAFCo services, which was put off from last month's meeting so that the Plumas County Spe- cial Districts Association could review it. Larry Fites, a epresentative from the asso- ciation, said John Benoit's re- vised schedule demonstrated "as equitable an approach as can be done at this time." The new fee/deposit sched- ule, the updated 2010-11 bud- get, the executive officer's re- port on the final budget, and LAFCo f0rms and applica- tions are all available online at When your life changes, shouldn't your heolthcare coverage change with it?
