OUT-OF-TOWN TRIP SCHEDULES
It is necessary for us to temporarily suspend congregate meals at the Bieber Nutrition Site effective 9/15/2005 until a Site Manager can be hired. We anticipate that congregate meals will resume within two to three weeks after that date.We had planned to send personnel from Susanville to act as Site Manager. However, because the environment at the Bieber Nutrition Site is so hostile to Lassen Senior Services administration and staff, we will not send anyone to this site alone. Staff at the Susanville site has been reduced to three people. We cannot send 2/3 of our staff to Bieber two days per week without jeopardizing the agency's ability to properly administer the agency's other three sites, as well as accounts payable, accounts receivable, payroll, grant monitoring, transportation reporting, and all of the other administrative duties needed to keep things running smoothly.
