Taylor called the special board meeting because he wanted to get the issue in front of the county Board of Supervisors at one of its September meetings, before FRC runs out of cash by the end of the month. Board member Leah West asked if, given "the crummy economy," the "supervisors were on board" with this request. Taylor said he wanted FRC's board to meet and pass the resolution before talking to the supervisors. The resolution originally set a not-to-exceed amount of $4,015,538 during the 2010 - 11 fiscal year. The board amend- ed the amount to $4,970,903 before passing the resolution unanimously, The district normally receives its first county tax apportionment in December. The second apportionment comes in April after the second round of taxes comes in. As board president Bill Elliott saw it, the college is "just taking our money early." Taylor said, while the reso- lution states a maximum amount the college wants to "transfer" from the county, it would take the money on an "as needed" basis. "We want to maximize options," he said. FRC is looking for both its December and April allot- ments now. Taylor also sug- gested the increase in the funds requested -- up from $4,015,538 to $4,970,903. Ac- cording to the state's educa- tion code, the district can borrow up to 85 percent of anticipated tax revenues, and the $4.9 million still adheres to that measure. Taylor ended.the meeting on an apocalyptic note, "Frankly, if you look at the worst case scenario, literally? We don't know when the state budget's going to be done. And, yes we're due propey taxes in December, but by January we're operat- ing $2.6 million in the red if we're operating at all. And that simply mounts if there's a serious problem." West requested a further look at budget priorities, "At a future meeting, I'd like to see -- where are we taking steps to cut spending ... we're hiring. We keep hiring. I'd like to see ... what's been done, what's going to be done, to cut some spending." Director John Sheehan asked even tougher ques- tions. "If nothing happens by December, a whole scenario of things will have to take place ... what happens if there's no money? Every business at some point has to face that." "People don't get paid," added Elliott. Taylor, who. clearly has been forced to think along the same lines, said "We're start- ing to look, with our lawyers and banks and so on, in this next few days, if we were to use a voucher system, would that work, and how would it work?" PHONES, from page 1A capacity later this year. Verizon spokeswoman Heidi Flato could not discuss future improvement plans, though she did offer to provide details about recent upgrades. "We have a cell site on Mount Hough that provides coverage to Quincy, Tay- lorsville and Crescent Mills," she wrote. Last fall Verizon employees installed new antennas on Stover Mountain, their Chester cell site, at a much higher elevation. "This significantly im- proved our coverage in many areas around the north side of Lake Almanor, including the Warner Valley north of Chester out toward the Drakesbad Resort," she added. Back to landlines, Beasley said there are improvements being made to service in the Genesee area. "We are in the process of adding more capacity to Genesee Road so the residents who have not had service in the past will have access to Frontier Fast High Speed Internet," she said. "For cus- tomers in the area that were experiencing latency during peak traffic times they will see more consistency in speeds." Completed last year was a fiber build from Greenville to Taylorsville that added capacity so new high-speed customers could sign up and existing customers would ex- perience faster speeds during peak traffic times. Beasley concluded with the assurance that the two build- outs are examples of Fron- tier's commitment to commu- nities in its service area. "We will continue to look for other opportunities for expansion as customer adop- tion on the network increases," she said. PAGER, from page 1A cell phone," which made things easier. "Steve (Tolen) has people on La Porte Road and Genesee Valley," places not known for reliable cell phone coverage. "There's not one fit-all answer for this," he con- cluded. "It's very compli- cated." Meanwhile, Tolen marches on, looking for mountaintop properties with owners he hopes are willing to volun- teer to house a small trans- mission tower for free, although he added PDH was willing to help with a little rent money if necessary. He said the transmitter was surprisingly small but required power, room for a backup generator and prefer- ably a phone line, which allows technical support workers to assess problems digitally without driving up the mountain every time something goes wrong.
