Pool authority seeks negotiations with high school district

Tuesday, May 20, 2014 — Lassen County supervisors Jim Chapman and Larry Wosick both were absent, but the Honey Lake Valley Recreation Authority directed staff today to take another route in trying to purchase the Credence High School property as the site for a community swimming pool. 

Facing the possibility the Credence High School property the authority selected as the top site for a pool actually may be owned by the high school district, the board in closed session directed staff to suspend negotiations with the Susanville Elementary School District and seek negotiations with the high school district for the purchase of the property.

Legal action won’t delay pool progress

Tuesday, May 20, 2014 — Recent legal action won’t stop the progress for a new community swimming pool, according to one Lassen County supervisor.

Jim Chapman, who is also a board director on the Honey Lake Valley Recreation Authority, said the authority is not interested in getting between the Lassen Union High School and Susanville School districts over whose got what.

“And if that isn’t resolved by the end of June, we’ve got several other sites that were considered and that are available and we’re not interested in having the project be held up, waiting, pending them sorting out the difference that they have concerning the preferred site,” Chapman said during a Tuesday, May 13 supervisors meeting.

Juvenile hall budget cuts sought

Tuesday, May 20, 2014 — Lassen County staff is continuing to find ideas to reduce a $1.3 million the juvenile hall budget.

According to Lassen County administrative officer Richard Egan, several options are being looked at which will reduce the budget by $15,000. Those ideas are moving some of the juvenile hall staff into other areas of the probation department to create a reduction of a 3/4 Full Time Equivalent.

Staff is also looking at partnering with the Lassen County Jail in coordinating the control board during non-waking hours at juvenile hall to further reduce one to two full time equivalents.
