County Commissioners Report

The only item of business on the agenda for the regular April 10 meeting of the county commissioners was the county operated resort, Howard Prairie. The Commissioners approved a state grant for $130,000 plus $5,000 cash, and $20,000 in-kind labor for the purpose of improving the restroom and shower facilities.

These monies are in addition to a Bureau of Reclamation grant approved last September for the same project. At that meeting there was a documented request of matching funds or in-kind services of $127,517.71, but it appears that has now turned into $155,000, and emails requesting clarification have gone unanswered.
