After a middle of the night fire at the Downieville Motor Mart Laundromat Humayoon Lodhi is waiting for the insurance adjuster, and then he does plan on reopening (and remodeling) the laundromat. Luckily neighbor Dan Farrington smelled something burning and was able to alert the fire department or we might have lost the entire building and gas station. Thank you Dan.
Until the Downieville laundry reopens the Sierra City Country Store’s laundromat is open 7 days a week, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. They have 2 large dryers and 3 washing machines.
On Friday, November 2, at 6 p.m. there will be a community meeting at the Alleghany Fire House regarding the post office. The community is encouraged to attend as the powers that be want to restrict post office hours to 2 hours a day, so they need community support to keep it running regular hours.
