The Board of Clearwater County Commissioners held a public hearing March 13, to re-open the county’s 2023 fiscal year budget, without receiving a single response either written or oral, and approved Resolution No. 23-2-6 amending the unanticipated revenue received for the 2023 fiscal year from the Local Assistance and Tribal Consistency Fund (LATCF) in the amount of $2,668,500.
These funds will be used for the purchase of heavy equipment for the county’s Road and Bridge and Solid Waste departments as well as for necessary updates and replacements of equipment in other county departments.
In other business held earlier in the day, Road and Bridge Supervisor Rudy Knapik reported the designated 92.66% reimbursement from the Local Highway Technical Assistance Council (LHTAC) for the placement of guardrails at Crow Bench and Lakeview roads had been approved.
Knapik also asked commissioners to approve the Dura Patch Oil contract in order to secure the lock-in price for purchase in October as the cost has increased by $10/ton.
Knapik also informed commissioners that the department would begin grading some of the lower roads in the county as the weather continues to improve.
Commissioners also met with Anthan Larson, the new County Weed Supervisor, hired to fill the vacancy of Denny Williams, who has recently retired.
