2A Wednesday, Aug. 27, 2014 Feather River Bulletin Supervisors debate and split on request for computers Debra Moore Staff Writer The Mental Health Department&apos;s request to spend $88200 on computers triggered a lengthy discussion during the Plumas County Board of Supervisors meeting Aug. 19. The money would cover 42 ' desktop computers, seven laptops and two tablets, as well as multiple monitors. Mental Health Director Peter Livingston spent much of the time defending his request for two monitors per computer. "It's a luxury," Supervisor Jon Kennedy said. "! have it, but I'm a private citizen." Using two monitors makes it possible to have multiple windows open more easily. "I understand your point," Livingston said, "but to me $5,000 (the portion of the cost attributable to monitors)... you garner that much in efficiency." Supervisor Sherrie Thrall wasn't just concerned with multiple monitors; she wanted to know if the existing computers could be upgraded. Livingston received help from Dave Preston, the county's information technology director, who said that trying to update 8-year-old computers could cause more problems. Thrall also wanted to know what would happen to the old computers. Livingston explained that to protect health information, the hard drives are removed and sent to Kings View (the county's system provider) to be destroyed. "They could go to the county," Livingston said of the remaining hardware. "You are the county," Supervisor Lori Simpson said. Livingston said he simply meant "as opposed to the Chico Recycling Center" or another similar entity. The supervisors ultimately approved the equipment purchase but with the admonition that Livingston carefully consider the need for each piece of equipment, especially the monitors. Thrall voted against authorizing the purchase, and Terry Swofford wasn't present for the vote. The county does not fund the mental health department. Its revenues come from state and federal sources. The department also received authorization to frill two vacant positions: a program chief and mental health or behavioral health therapist. It's official The supervisors joined the city of Portola in declaring a local emergency due to the drought. Jerry Sipe, the county's director of the office of emergency services, said that while the declaration provides little functionally, it brings attention to the area. New job descriptions The supervisors approved new job descriptions for the assistant director of public health and a green waste attendant. The former is a new description that more accurately describes the job. " "The change will broaden the pool of applicants and creates a nice ladder," said Human Resources Director Gayla Trumbo. The second description is for a new position. Where in the World? Jim and Gloria Boland attend the first game -- which the 49ers lost -- in the new Levi's stadium.

Debra Moore Staff Writer dmoore@plu County counsel and the building official both have another employee on their budget wish list, while the fair and museum will struggle through another year without asking for additional revenue. Another group of officials appeared before the Plumas County Board of Supervisors on Aug. 19 to present their budgets for the 2014-15 fiscal year. The supervisors are meeting with each department head before making any final decisions. "We are all aware of the shoestring budget that you're on," Board Chairman Jon Kennedy told Scott Lawson, the museum curator. "What room is left in the budget unless we close it?" The county funds Lawson's position, but the reminded her fellow board members that the museum is more than just a place for residents and tourists to take a walk down memory lane; the facility houses many of the county's historical documents and artifacts. County Counsel Craig Settlemire presented a status quo budget but said, "I have a wish list -- another attorney." With an additional attorney, Settlemire said that he could accomplish more work in house without having to rely on outside attorneys, as well as provide assistance to special districts, among other benefits. Settlemire also lobbied to raise his two current employees to a higher pay grade. "You appreciate the work of people who have, stepped up," he said. Likewise, Building Official John Cunningham museum association picks : presented two budgets: p. the' other costs. : ..... statuS quoand one With an Supervisor Lori Simpson additional employee that he would like to divide between building inspection and code enforcement. "Building is struggling to keep up," Cunningham said. "We are falling behind on plan check." Chairman Kennedy suggested tfiat Cunningham could budget more revenue since his permit fees have been consistently higher than he has budgeted, and that the sheriff has been working on a hybrid position that would include code enforcement. The remainder of the departments -- the ag commission, information technology, auditor- controller, the grand jury and Board of Supervisors -- recommended little change. The supervisors were scheduled to discuss the public safety departments yesterday, Aug. 26. The board will not meet Tuesday, Sept. 2, but will meet the remainder of the Tuesdays in September, with budget adbptmrigi#iuled for ; : ": Sept. 30: VALUE iS; PART OF EVERY PACKAGE  Animal Planet C-SPAN  FOX News Channel HeN QVC " TV Land Bio (ch=lag m FVl July =01A) C-SPAN2 Great American Country Nickelodeon/Nick at Nite (E) -= RFD-TV Weather Channel Bloomberg Television DishHOME Interactive TV Hallmark Channel Nickelodeon/Nick at Nite (W) Science Boomerang s DIY Hallmark Movie Channel Nicktoons Network The Hub Network Plus Many More Cooking Channel Food Network HLN Outdoor Channel TV Guide Network :OE i  PREMIUM V:::So  ::iuhve:: :  ::/  + J Ask how you can Save $10/mo.
