4A Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2001 Community News ieather I iB By Debra Coates Managing Editor Despite some concerns, the Plumas County Board of Su- pervisors will consider con- verting the former Alcohol and Drug building, near the courthouse annex, into a transition house for recover- ing addicts. Supervisor Ken Nelson said he had "serious con- cerns" about the facility's lo- cation, which would be adja- cent to the parking lot where employees would be walking, sometimes late at night. He also had cost concerns. Bob Minert, the county's director of the drug and alco- hol program, said that the fa- cility would have 24-hour su- pervision. As for the costs, he was confident that no county money would be required. "I don't want to be a burden on the general fund," he said. While Nelson had reserva- tions, board chairman Don Clark supported the proposal. "This seems like a better prospect than anything we've seen in years," he said. However, Clark said that before the hoard gives its ap- proval, it will be.necessary to consult with all of those po- tentially impacted, incluniing county employees and Feath- er River College personnel. Minert asked the supervi- sors to pass a resolution stat- ing it was the board's inten- tion to "make it a priority" to consider the annex. Although Minert doesn't foresee the building being utilized as a transition house for at least four to five years, he wanted to ensure that the supervisors would consider it at the appropriate time. Before the supervisors vot- ed on the issue, Hank Eisen- mann, chairman of the Drug and Alcohol Advisory Board, told the supervisors it was their "duty to fulfill unmet needs." Eisenmann turned to Su- pervisor B.J. Pearson and said, "You worry about state funding--there will be plenty of money. These are serious health concerns. If you don't address them, you're not meeting your obligations as supervisors." Eisenmann's comments rankled Pearson, who said, "Other people are in need and there's only so much money. My first priority is young people who don't choose their circumstances." Before the discussion could continue, Clark called for the vote, and the resolution was passed unanimously.
