|$ FOR SERVICES RENDERED|
ADMINISTRATIVE AGREEMENT REACHED 7-27-15 LMS
The county will begin paying the Lemhi County Economic Development Association (LCEDA) for its administrative work at the county’s Industrial Park.
LCEDA Executive Director Tammy Stringham met with the Lemhi County Commissioners Monday, July 27, to follow through on an offer of financial reimbursement for administrative services made at the July 13 commissioner’s meeting. LCEDA is in charge of managing the Industrial Park which is currently full of rental clients and generating a revenue of around $2,870 per month. That amount is expected to increase next year to over $3,000 a month for a year end result of approximately $35,000.
It has taken many years for the facility to actually show a profit and the commissioners felt it is time to reward LCEDA for its work. Stringham told the commissioners that most of the hours devoted to the Park have to do with paperwork in the form of bookkeeping. After discussing the logistics of tracking the exact number of hours it was decided a percentage of the income would be equitable as well as easier. The consensus was 15 percent of the Industrial Park’s gross revenue will be paid to LCEDA for its administration services.
Lemhi County Landfill Manager Ken Boese reported that since June 10 the landfill’s recycling of cardboard has yielded 208 bales for a total of 93.3 tons. He expects the county will be receiving around $6,000 from the cardboard sales. Boese said Shopko bales its own cardboard but can only store around 15 bales at a time. It has been agreed that the landfill will pick up, haul and store Shopko’s cardboard bales in return for being able to add them to the cardboard baled by the landfill.
He said two loads of metal were shipped from the landfill last week. The first load consisted of 22 bales which totaled 36.2 tons and the second load had 21 bales for a total weight of 33.83 tons. There are two more truckloads of close to 30 bales which will be shipped as soon as muddy landfill roads allow.
Boese said the nine six yard waste containers approved for purchase at the last commissioner’s meeting are expected to arrive this week.
