Fire Safe Council cuts education director

Wednesday, June 10, 2015 — Due to funding restraints, the Lassen County Fire Safe Council had to eliminate the education director role on the board.
    According to president Lloyd Keefer, the education director position, held by Dan Douglas, will be cut, effective at the end of the month.  
    “The board of directors of the Fire Safe Council have decided to terminate Dan’s contract at the end of June for budgetary reasons solely … it’s an unfortunate decision we had to make because I think the program has had a great benefit for the communities and schools,” said Keefer.

Tuesday, June 9, 2015 — The numbers used by the State Water Resources Control Board to rank Susanville as the top municipality in the state in terms of the amount of water conserved are inaccurate.
    Councilmember Nick McBride questioned the ranking during the Susanville City Council’s Wednesday, June 2 meeting. According the state’s numbers, the city reduced its water consumption by 56 percent during April 2015 compared to April 2013.
    “What’s the big news on the radio that we’re the biggest conserver of water in the state?” McBride asked Jared Hancock, the city’s administrator. The erroneous ranking also was reported on a local website.
