Tom Downing, Susanville’s chief of police, reminds drivers to slow down in school zones and minimize distractions such as eating or texting. He also reminded pedestrians to obey all traffic laws. He said police officers will be out enforcing traffic laws in school zones.

Aug. 20, 2013 — Thanks to a bold and controversial plan from Susanville councilmember Brian Wilson and Lassen County District 2 Supervisor Jim Chapman, the city of Susanville and Lassen County may have taken the first steps to actually getting a new swimming pool for local residents.
According to the Wilson/Chapman plan, the city and the county each will allocate $200,000 per year from their budgets for 15 years — a hefty commitment, no doubt (a total of $3 million from each elected body). The city and the county would form a Pool Commission through a joint powers agreement that would have the decision-making authority to fund, construct, maintain and operate a swimming pool.
