Feb. 15, 2011 — If there was ever a time to get involved in the business of the Susanville City Council that acts on behalf of the citizens of this community, it is this week.
We encourage everyone to change his or her plans and attend the Wednesday, Feb. 16 public hearing on what could be a fiasco waiting to happen. At 7 p.m. this Wednesday, the council, made up of five elected officials, is soliciting your comments on “the possible temporary borrowing from the restricted Water Capital Improvements Fund in order to refund the Plumas Bank golf course note, or a portion thereof. The council will be considering the use of the other available monies as well.”
