i4A Wednesday, Sept. 7, 2011 Chester Progressive, Westwood PinePress FAIR, from page 13A Steffanic reviewed the de- tails of the agreement reached with the Board of Supervisors' budget commit- tee. He added that since then, the road department agreed to employ fair office manager Kathy Tedford for 10 percent of her time in- stead of the agreed reduc- tion in hours. The road de- partment will transfer $14,200 to the fair, effectively bringing Tedford back to full employment. The fair begins the fiscal year with a fund balance of $85,993 and is budgeted for revenues of $328,824 against net expenses of $414,817. Steffanic also reported budgeted revenue from grounds rental, $114,649, is overstated by $24,649, per in- structions from Ingstad, and that there was no request for a county contribution at this time. Consternation greeted that announcement; board president Howard Hughes summed up the general miss pulled pork or tri.tip sandwiches! and collecti les toys and all at,:R ins Flea Concealed weapons class set Fall marks the time of the year for the final offering of the 2011 California Con- cealed Weapons Permit classes for Plumas and Lassen county residents de- siring to carry a firearm.

HOT DOG understanding of the situa- tion by characterizing the $24,649 as a revenue short- fall, even before supervisors approved a budget. Steffanic said the amount was to balance the proposed budget and Ingstad told him it was appropriate to add the $24,649 to that account. Ingstad was out of town as of press time and his reason for directing an overstate- ment of revenue instead of requesting a county contri- bution of $24,649 is un- known.
