4A Wednesday, Oct. 8, 2014 Feather River Bulletin VENTURE, from page 1A very enthusiastically pursuing ability to participate in application for state funds to build a jail," Hagwood said. "We are on a timetable as well to be eligible for the state funding and need to secure the property in the next several months." The next step Hagwood and Farrow agreed the next step would involve a frank discussion between the state's planners and representatives from the county. Hagwood said the county's team should include the building, planning and public works departments, along with county counsel and a supervisor. Farrow said, "It needs to be a sit-down meeting with all the practitioners who actually put these things together, where they can really further dig into what your ultimate goal is and what ours is ... see what matches and what doesn't. Then at the end of the day, have an honest dialogue to say 'yeah this can be done, or it can't:'" The joint facility Hagwood said he envisions a campus that would eventually be home to not just the CHP, sheriff and jail, but also the fire department and a regional dispatch center. "It would be like one-stop shopping for emergency services," Hagwood said. Farrow said putting the CHP and sheriff in one building would cut down on construction costs. The commissioner said "who would pay for what" would be a key topic at the next meeting. He said there are numerous options. The CHP currently shares an office with the Ventura County sheriff in Moorpark. In that arrangement, the state rents the space from the county. Farrow noted the CHP also shares offices with the DMV in nine locations. "The concept of being in one building ... you'll never hear us say that is not a good idea," Farrow said. "In fact, I think it's an excellent idea." The need The local CHP and sheriff's offces are both outdated and widely regarded as inadequate. The CHP's office used to be the Quincy DMV. The sheriff took over the former U.S. Forest Service office in 1990. The jail, built in the 1970s, is one of just a few Sheriff Greg Hagwood shows California Highway Patrol Commissioner Joe Farrow, right, the18-acre East Quincy site where the sheriff wants to build a campus that would house new offices for the CHP and sheriff, as well as a new jail, as supervisor candidate Jim Judd, center, and Assistant Sheriff Dean Canalia look on. Photo by Dan McDonald linear-design jails left in the state. For more than two decades, county grand juries have labeled the facility unsafe for both inmates and corrections officers. The Sept. 30 meeting In addition to Hagwood and the three CHP leaders, the meeting included Quincy Fire Chief Robbie Cassou, Graeagle Fire Chief Ed Ward, Assistant Sheriff Dean Canalia, Administrative Sgt. Todd Johns, District 5 supervisor candidate Jim Judd, Bryan Hanson and Jack Bridge. Commissioner Farrow said he realized there was unfinished business in Plumas County after receiving a letter from Judd. In the letter, Judd urged Farrow to reconsider the state's decision to build a separate CHP facility instead of collaborating with the sheriff on  joint facility. The CHP announced March 28 that it was already "well underway" in its site-selection process and said it wouldn't be feasible to start the process over. "In my mind, we were buying property, we were ready to pound nails," Farrow said. "Then I get a letter, and I think, 'They still think there's a discussion going on and this isn't over.' "So that's why I thought it was important that we had to : come back up here. Because, at the end of the day, whether we have a building or not, you've got to have a good taste in your mouth that you know 'at least they sat down with us. At least they tried. At least there was an honest conversation.'" No supervisors Due to apparent miscommunication, no Plumas County supervisors attended the meeting with Farrow. The meeting took place at the same time as the weekly Board of Supervisors meeting. Hagwood said he didn't : intend to exclude the supervisors. He said he was working to accommodate Commissioner Farrow's - schedule. Supervisor Lori Simpson said she was disappointed that she was not able to attend. She said Hagwood told her about the meeting weeks ago, but never told her, the time. "I find that very strange, because the sheriff is usually always very good about : communicating with me," : Simpson said. Simpson said she supports , the joint venture and will be., involved in the next meeting., The date and location of that meeting have not been announced. "-'4" " r *.
