10A Wednesday, Nov. 17, 2010 Feather River Bulletin Joshua Sebold Staff Writer The Plumas County Board of Supervisors (BOS) unani- mously approved a plan to keep the Graeagle Transfer Site open on weekends for the next month while locals try to find a way to keep it open in the long term. Graeagle resident Jack Bridge presented the views of a group of community mem- bers about the proposed clos- ing of the area's waste trans- fer site at a Tuesday, Nov. 9, meeting. He began by suggesting that drop-off for appliances and metal could be moved to Delleker, adding that the recy- cling program in Graeagle could shift from buy-back, where residents are reim- bursed ff they sort their items, to commingled, where people just drop off their recycling all together and don't get reim- bursed. Bridge also suggested that Ross could save $22,000 by cut- ting back from four days per week to two. Ross had previously argued that he lost $100 per day when the site was open, which pen- cils out to $20,800 per year. Based on those previous ar- guments, it would seem that from Ross's ,perspective, cut- ting the days of operation in half would only cut that loss in half. Later in the meeting Ross argued that some expenses, like electricity and water, would exist as long as the site is open at all, regardless of how many days per week. This might account for the differences in the citizens' and Ross's reading of the numbers. Bridge also addressed $150,000 in capital improve- ments that Ross previously said needed to be made to ac- count for safety measures and liability if the site were to re- main open much longer. He argued that Ross could save money in multiple line items from not having to put in a new appliance bin. The Graeagle local also told the board Ross should only DOORS TRIM WINDOWS PLUMBING ROOFING " ELECTRICAL If it's something we can't fix, we'll find somebody who can. 27 years and counting!. During the past 26 years, we are proud to have built more than 70 homes and 100 garages in Plumas County, not to mention the hundreds of remodels, additions and insurance repairs we've done as well. With the change in the economy (specifically, fewer new housing starts), my business partner (and son) Donavon and I knew we had to change our business model. We're not going anywhere, and we still build new homes, garages and commercial buildings. So, in the past year we found there was a real need to assist homeowners in making their existing homes more efficient attractive and valuable. We've helped lots and lots of people with all kinds of projects that might have only taken 15 minutes to several days or weeks to, complete. Ancl, if we couldn't do their job, we d make sure to connect them with someone who could. It's that kind of service and satisfaction that will help take us through our next 25 years!!!

He added that there didn't need to be a breakroom for the employee at the site because "He should be working all ex- cept for his lunchtime and usually they close the gate and go to lunch." In reality, California labor laws require that empIoyers provide 10-minute breaks af- ter each three and a half hours of work. If an employee is ever re- quired to stay at work for lunch for any reason a sani- tary place must be provided for him to eat. Bridge's background mater- ial argued that a 40-50 percent reduction in the total capital costs might be possible if the community's recommenda- tions were taken. He also said the BOS could consider a surcharge fee for "those vho use the Graeagle facility." Bridge and several other cit- izens argued that fewer people would recycle and more peo- ple would illegally dump trash, which they felt was al- ready a problem, if the site were closed. Public Works Director Robert Perreault said he would work with the residents group in the upcoming month and vet some of their sugges- tions. He also pointed out that Ross had a program where people could get trash pickup even if they were just in the area for a weekend. Ross said this involved the homeowner purchasing a bear-proof container to put his garbage bin in. He explained that people could leave their trash in that location and call his company and someone would pick it up the next time they were in the area. Ross said this service wasn't much more expensive than a weekly pickup in terms of how much customers pay for each occasion. Bridge summed up his argu- ments: "The county budget is tight, we understand that. The merchants are struggling to stay open and if we are gonna transfer costs to the mer- chants in a time when they are already under stress eco- nomically I think that we have to balance that."

Joshua Sebold Staff Writer The Plumas County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the final adoption of a county off-highway vehicle ordinance at a Tuesday, Nov. 9, meeting. A complete copy of the.ordi- nance can be found in the le- gal notices on page 5 of to- day's Sports section. The ordinance clarifies that many county roads within Plumas and Lassen national forests are approved for recre- ational use by OHV and snow vehicles. These roads are under the county's jurisdiction because they predate the des- ignation of the area as a national forest. Public Works Director Bob Perreault told the supervisors his office hadn't received any negative comments about the ordinance since the first read- ing in November. Earlier in the process, the first draft of the ordinance was amended slightly when Perreault got some sugges- tions from the public. At an October meeting, Per- reault told the board this ac- tion would maintain current availability of county roads on forestlands for motorized recreational activities in the PUBLIC NOTICES Highway 70, CAL-SIERRA TITLE COMPANY, as said N.A. is a debt collector attempting to collect Quincy property sale Trustee, a debt.

The board's action was tak- en in response to the Plumas National Forest putting many roads on a list to be decom- missioned. At the October meeting, Perreault explained the For- est Service was closing many of them at least partially be- cause county roads "were not available for OHV travel through the forest to get from what's called a spur road to another spur road." Perreault told the board that wasn't the view the coun- ty, California Highway Patrol or sheriff's office had on the issue and"this ordinance would make the matter clear for the forests. The public works manager said his department's engi- neers conducted safety assess- ments on each roadway. He added that the ordinance was explained to the CHP, SO and Forest Service and "all of the meetings with the different agencies were positive and were supportive in nature for this project to move forward." OHV user advocate Corky Lazzarino attended most if not all of the meetings on this topic, including the final adoption. She voiced her appreciation for the county's actions throughout the process, along with her hopes that the Forest Service would reconsider its stance in response to these changes. Lazzarino's thoughts on the Forest Service's actions regard- ing OHV access can be found in an opinion piece in the Region- al section of this paper.
