Accounting Supervisor Angel gave her weekly report. The auditors will be back this week. The Commissioners said that there was a question asked about hail damage on the Lekse FEMA PDM (pre disaster mitigation) property that the County just closed on. Ms. Angel told the Commissioners that per FEMA rules, we bought it at the appraised value of pre- 2016 so any hail damage is a non-issue. They will be looking into a possible new IT agreement.

They said that there was more than $16,000.00 damage to our infrastructure and that they are happy with the way the County has been working on the programs. Fish Wildlife & Parks are developing a plan for a fishing access on the FMA(flood mitigation assistance) and HMPG(hazard mitigation grant program)properties.
County Agent Walter met with the Commissioners to see if it was ok to buy a new commercial mower for the fairgrounds? As long as there is the money in the budget they do not have a problem with it. Mr. Walter is going to contact the Roundup Rodeo people to see if they are still going to use the fairgrounds over the 4th.
