Majority of Alturas Council Supportive
Jacques declined to be interviewed by the Modoc Independent and Modoc County Daily News, saying “I don’t have any comment for your paper. I made my statement in an open public meeting, you can get a copy of it from the minutes of the council meeting.”
“Actually this is not the first time the city and county have shared services. Scott Kessler did planning for both.
“You ask about Chester. Out of all the people I’ve ever known I have to say he’s aggressive yes, but he’s a good guy, a workaholic with good ideas. He thinks of different ways to get to 'A.'
“As far as sharing his services with the county, I believe having a part of Chester is better than having no Chester at all. We have four or five big projects in the works at the city and I’m sure he wants to see them done. Chester has morals, integrity and a vested interest in the community.”
