City scrambles to create water conservation plan

Tuesday, May 26, 2015 — Brian Wilson, Susanville’s mayor, expressed the irony of the situation in which the city faces severe state-mandated water conservation measures when it has plenty of water as the city council spent more than an hour discussing at the council’s Wednesday, May 20 meeting how to meet the state regulations and avoid a possible $10,000-per-day fine.
    The state will monitor the city’s water usage beginning June 1 as the city attempts to achieve a 36 percent reduction in potable water use.

How to become a certified farmer

Monday, May 25, 2015 — Be a local farmer at the Lassen Land and Trails Trust Farmers Market this season by visiting the Lassen County Ag Commissioners office. It’s as easy as a phone call to 251-8110 to schedule an appointment to complete the Certified Producers Certificate which documents for buyers that you are the farmer who raised the product they are purchasing.
    You will need to bring a list of the varieties of fruits, nuts, vegetables, herbs, honey, shell eggs, cut flowers or nursery stock you raise plus provide them with your physical address. They would need a map of your growing site (hand-drawn is sufficient as long as its legible), expected volume of production and when you intend to harvest.

    Thirteen homes were made available and a Cal Fire proctor was stationed at each residence. When fire crews arrived, the proctor gave them a scenario and based on the information and assessment, the crew determined if the home was defendable.
