College continues repayment plan

Monday, March 23, 2015 — The Lassen Community College Board of Trustees unanimously voted to continue on their current repayment plan.

At the Tuesday, March 10 meeting, superintendent/ president Dr. Marlon Hall presented the board with the option to have a lower annual payment for the existing resolution agreement with the California Community College Chancellor’s Office, which started when the college was in violation.

“It’s a huge financial burden on the district,” said Hall.

In December, the board authorized college administration to enter negotiations to try and lower the $162,047 annual payment, with hopes the funds left over each year could be put toward improving the infrastructure on campus.

Commission approves wayfinding document

Monday, March 23, 2015 — The Lassen County Transportation Commission reviewed the vehicular wayfinding project plan during its Monday, March 9 meeting.

A wayfinding plan uses signs, maps and other methods to point out attractions and directions.

The commissioners approved the plan, which will now go to the city council.

The plan, which was first discussed in the summer of 2014, was originally intended to de-clutter the signs on Main Street and point out key attractions. Now, the project is seen as more of a community-branding project.
