Tommy's up for sale; prominent family leaving county
A family's decision to leave Colusa County will create an open position on the County Board of Supervisors and a "for sale" sign on the window of a popular downtown restaurant.
Colusa County Supervisor Tom Indrieri is selling Tommy's Market Street Grill and planning to move from Colusa to Rocklin with his wife, chief operations officer of the Family Water Alliance, Ashley Indrieri.
Ashley Indrieri said she will continue working with the Family Water Alliance.
Tommy's Market Street Grill is for sale for $375,000.
"Hopefully, someone wants to come in and take a busy turnkey restaurant," he said. "It's a pretty good deal."
Once the family sells their house in Colusa, Tom Indrieri will be retiring from the Board of Supervisors.
"We're not in a big hurry," he said.
He said they plan to move after his son, Quinton, graduates high school in June.
"A third of my life I've put towards this community as PTA, chamber (of commerce) president for five years, with the Williams Civic Association and for nine years as a supervisor. In 15 years, I gave it my all," Indrieri said.
He said they are moving for new opportunities.
"I just turned 45, and I'm looking for a change and to raise my twins. They just turned 2," Indrieri said.
He plans to move into food distribution, on the other side of food sales, and to work 40-hour weeks instead of 90-hour weeks.
Indrieri opened Tommy's in October 2010 and moved the restaurant to its new location on the corner of Sixth and Market Streets in October 2012. He built his reputation, in part, by catering for community events throughout the county, for which there will not be a void that Indr eri urged Rocco's Bar & Grill and Louis Cairo's to fill.
"It is such a unique and fantastic community. I've enjoyed the blood, sweat and tears," Indrieri said.
"We made this decision heavyhearted as Colusa County is the place we love," Ashley Indrieri said.
She was named Woman of the Year by Assemblyman Dan Logue in May and said she will continue to serve as the head staff member of the Family Water Alliance.
"I plan to stay here with FWA. ... FWA is strong and the issues that we advocate for are more important than ever," she said.
