Mayors gather to plan ways to move city forward

Six former Susanville mayors (Jim Chapman, left, Kathie Garnier, Rod De Boer, Kevin Stafford, Brian Wilson and Kurt Bonham) joined current mayor Mendy Schuster, third from left, for a brainstorming session regarding the future of Susanville Tuesday, May 11 at City Hall, sparked by the recent announcement of the closure of the California Correctional Center. Schuster suggested a three-pronged approach — oppose the decision to close the prisons, identify the impact to the city of Susanville and its citizens and finally reimagine Susanville.
