County squanders $324,000 grant
March 26, 2013 — A question by a Lassen County Supervisor regarding an update on grants administered by the county’s Department of Planning and Building Services started the wheels of controversy turning.
According to the staff report included with the board packet, the county had not administered a $324,000 housing rehabilitation grant to be used in the South County. None of the money has been spent, and the grant expires June 30, 2013. Anderson said the county received the grant funding in August 2011.
