City names street in honor of slain officer
Sunday, Sept. 28, 2014 — The city of Susanville honored slain police officer Robert McElrath by naming a street in his honor at its Wednesday, Sept. 17 city council meeting.
Craig Sanders, city planner, said a portion of the old River Street that became Riverside Drive and also was known as Riverside Extension has never been officially named. The stretch of roadway runs from S. Mesa Street to Main Street. He said a new street name was needed to supply an address for a new business.
Three street names were recommended — Millwood (Lane, Avenue or Street), Nobles Drive and Nataqua Drive.
