Lawsuit aftermath fractures district

Tuesday, June 3, 2014 — Depending upon whom you ask, the Lassen Irrigation Company’s recently filed lawsuit against the Honey Lake Valley Resource Conservation District is either the beginning of the end or the end of the beginning of the controversy surrounding the process used to deliver water to water users in Lassen County. But folks on both sides of the issue said getting the issues before a judge who can make a determination will sort things out and lead to a resolution of the continuing conflict.

After a closed session discussion of the lawsuit by the board and its attorney at its Wednesday, May 28 meeting, a process server privately served the individual board members with a thick packet regarding the lawsuit. The board took no reportable action in closed session.

Included in the board packet for the meeting was a letter from board chairman Ramsey Wood received via email Tuesday, May 20 announcing his resignation from the board effective immediately.

Term limits ordinance moves forward

Tuesday, June 3, 2014 — An ordinance to limit a supervisor’s time on the board to no more than three terms, passed its first reading during a Tuesday, May 27 meeting of the Lassen County Board of Supervisors.

The ordinance was approved in a 4 to 1 vote and will come back for a second reading Tuesday, June 10. Once adopted, the ordinance becomes effective after 30 days.

The elections officer will then be directed to place the ordinance on the ballot of a regularly scheduled county election.
