Supervisors hold meeting in Big Valley
Monday, April 21, 2014 — The supervisors will be traveling to the North County for its regularly scheduled Tuesday, April 22 meeting.
The meeting will convene at 10 a.m. at the Veterans Hall in Bieber.
According to county executive officer Richard Egan, agenda items include a presentation from the acting Modoc Forest Service supervisor regarding the sustained yields unit, which gives those who process timber a financial incentive when the timber sale goes to bid.
Egan said the discussion could have implications for the Big Valley Lumber Company, which closed several years ago, but there has been some speculation and hope it will re-open as it was a big employer in the area.
The supervisors will also present proclamations to Morgan Higgins and James Davidson, two teenagers who alerted a family a fire was burning near their house allowing everyone in the house to safely evacuate.
The board will also tour the Bieber Library, whose boiler blew up and the One Stop. Afterward, the supervisors will adjourn and reconvene for a tour in Little Valley.
The original plan was for the supervisors and county staff to travel to the meeting in a bus, however, Egan said they will all meet in Bieber to avoid any potential Brown Act violations.
