Supes respond to grand jury

Tuesday, Sept. 23, 2014 — Wanting equal opportunity to have its entire response published, the Lassen County Board of Supervisors directed staff to pay for the report to be published in the newspaper.

The response can be found in its entirety on pages 10 and 11B.

The supervisors considered the format of the report, and Supervisor Jim Chapman said, “Whether it’s an insert or a full-page ad or whatever, as long the full text is there so the people can read it in its entirety, rather than having excerpts taken out. I mean, the news story can’t publish the whole thing, that’s not feasible.”

Pool authority to hold public meeting

Monday, Sept. 22, 2014 — If you’re a Lassen County resident and you have something to say about the proposed community pool project, you won’t want to miss a special public workshop presented by the Honey Lake Valley Recreation Authority. The workshop originally was scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 7 in the Susanville City Council Chambers, but it was cancelled due to a conflict with the design consultant. Jared Hancock, the authority’s executive officer, said the workshop would be rescheduled soon.

The authority, created last year through a joint powers agreement between the city of Susanville and Lassen County — with each entity putting up as much as $200,000 per year. The public is invited to attend and comment on a report on the preliminary design of the pool project.

Executive Officer Jared Hancock provided an update to the authority board regarding the purchase of two pieces of property for the new facility.
