COUNTY DECISIONS 11-28-16 LMS
A motion allowing officers of the Lemhi County Probation Department to carry concealed weapons was passed November 28 by the Lemhi County Commissioners.
The motion carried provisions that the probation officers undergo specific training and allocated a budget of $1,500 per person for the training and weapons. The subject has been discussed in terms of liability issues by the commissioners as well as County Attorney Bruce Withers for the past year.
In other business the commissioners approved Resolution 2016-18 which authorizes the transfer of excess sale proceeds to the State Treasurer. The resolution is pursuant to Idaho Code 31-808.
By law the county is allowed to borrow money from one fund and transfer it to another county fund. The commissioners passed Resolution 2016-19 which ordered a transfer of $150,000 from the General Fund to the Solid Waste Fund at a two percent interest rate. The money shall be repaid to the General Fund by the end of Fiscal Year 2018. According to Commissioner Rick Snyder the money is to take care of on-going and unforeseen expenses at the Landfill.
Dahles-Red-E-Mix Concrete submitted this year’s only gravel bid. The bid submitted was for an amount of 4,000 tons of 3/8” class A chips at $12.50 per ton for a total amount of $50,000. A motion was made and passed to accept the bid contingent on Road and Bridge Supervisor Chris Frederickson’s review and approval.
The county has announced that interviews for the position of Landfill Manager will be conducted on December 5 beginning at 8AM in the Commissioner’s Meeting Room of the Brooklyn Annex.
