Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Oct. 13, 2010 11A COURT, from page 1A District attorney-elect David Hollister told her the selection process would begin in February 2011, and that the public should be orga- nized and prepared to make its voice heard by then. He said there were many situations to consider, like how far the county should go in terms of closing Court and Buchanan streets or taking a loss on the sale of Dame Shirley Plaza com- pared to the price the county originally paid. Hollister asked Simpson, "Does the board have the political will to say 'you know what, this is so impor- tant to the community we're gonna make this work?'" "They better have the political will," District Five supervisorial candidate Jon Kennedy chimed in. "Well let me tell you," Simpson answered, "one's on his way out, one's been re- elected and she's, I don't if she'll go for re-election, and I don't know. Everybody's: We don't know if we're going up for re-election or anything." "So is this an election issue?" Jackson queried, "Like if you're up for re- election nobody will take a position?" "It's more like they don't care," Simpson clarified, "They say it's the state's decision." Jackson asked what mem- bers of the public could do to show the supervisors that they cared. Simpson said the issue would come before the board at some point, adding that she already knew outgoing supervisor Ole Olsen would vote no on Dame Shirley Plaza, as he favored the armory. Several audience members suggested people show up and make public comments at the beginning of the super- visors' meetings. As she brought the meeting to a close, Simpson said she would publicize the next meeting better and invite someone from the state's Administrative Office of the Courts. Walking distance to court a concern Joshua Sebold Staff Writer District attorney-elect David Hollister told the assembled public his office, county counsel and probation were the main county depart- ments that needed to be within walking distance of the courthouse, adding that most courthouses had the DA's office in them. At Supervisor Lori Simp- son's first public meeting, Hollister explained the tim- ing of the state's courthouse Background The California Administrative Office of the Courts (CAOC) is charged with construction of 40 courthouses throughout the state with $5 billion in bonds, to be repaid by increases in "court fees, penalties, and assessments." Anticipated size of the new courthouse is 38,280 square feet, with three courtrooms. State will own the building and will not include any county facilities. Current courthouse is county owned. Final site selection is scheduled for 2012, with construction occurring 2013 - 2015. construction projects was bad because none of the counties could afford to pay for county offices to be built in them. He said Deputy District Attorney II Gary McGowan was hauling more than 100 pounds of files down to court that morning, as an example of why the new courthouse needed to be near county offices. Hollister added there were security concerns with having employees travel long distances without escort on the job. He said if Dame Shirley Plaza were selected a covered walkway could be built between the new and old courthouses, which would satisfy his department's needs. Simpson said a downside to Dame Shirley Plaza was that there wasn't space for a jail, something Sheriff Greg Hagwood listed as a priority at the previous meeting. "I don't know that that's an issue anymore. I don't want to speak for the sheriff but I don't believe that's an issue," HoUister responded. In a short telephone inter- view, Hagwood said finding a way for an eventual new jail to be near the new court- house was still a top priority for him, but didn't think Dame Shirley Plaza ruled out that possibility. If that were the plan, the county should try to make a deal such as giving the state the land for free, but asking for an extra floor in the building that the county could turn into a jail when funding became avail- able. The sheriff hoped the state and county would "come to some sort of functional work- ing relationship so that we can look at the criminal justice situation in Plumas County in a larger perspec- tive with some planning for the future."
