Supervisors reject referee clause to correct Herlong property sale error

Tuesday, March 11, 2014 — In a 4 to 1 vote, the supervisors struck down a motion to invoke the referee clause for the wrong sale of a Herlong parcel the county had intended to keep.

If any controversy, breach or dispute arises out of the agreement, the referee clause allows an appointed person to decide the issues of fact and law and to report a decision and issue all of the legal and equitable relief appropriate.

Supervisor Aaron Albaugh, who requested the matter be placed on the board’s agenda for discussion, said, “The lawyers who wrote the sales agreement had the foresight and intuition to include the referee clause to protect the county. It would totally be unfair to all of the citizens of Lassen County not to use this tool that was provided.”

To the other board members, Albaugh said, "Gentlemen, we all took an oath of office. If we walk away from this without utilizing all of the options then shame on us."
