New City’s Council Meets, Selects Mayor
The new city of Shasta Lake selected a mayor and went into business Friday, about a month after voters decided to incorporate four small Shasta County communities.
The City Council, meeting for the first time, selected Larry Farr as mayor. Farr is a former member of the governing board of the public utility district that served the area. The district was dissolved and incorporated into the city.
Voters of Pine Grove, Summit City, Central Valley and Project City approved the incorporation last month. The decision was influenced by fears of annexation by Redding, a few miles to the south, and the county’s fiscal problems.
The city’s population is about 10,000.
