足球滚球比分The Park County Commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday to approve the allocation of the county’s first round of Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding, including $125,631 to the Sheriff’s Office and $41,008 to the Health Department.

足球滚球比分Park County Finance Director Erica Strickland said this is the first payout the county has received from the CARES Act, and the county is just putting money back where it was spent during the pandemic so far.

足球滚球比分“The funding will go back to where it was expended from,” Strickland said.

This first payout, $166,639, primarily covers payroll, Strickland said, and she’s submitting for a second round of funds to offset costs for personal protective equipment, disinfecting the City/County Complex and additional safety measures — about $60,000 — later this week. She said those funds will come from different sources, including the CARES Act and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

足球滚球比分The money disbursed to the Sheriff’s Office will offset costs from Payment In Lieu of Taxes funds from the federal government, Strickland said, which the county receives because it contains federal lands that are not charged property taxes.

足球滚球比分That $125,631 will be available for the county to use at its discretion, she said.

足球滚球比分“Basically we’re doing what the auditors recommended,” Strickland said.

In other business Tuesday, the commissioners voted unanimously to support a grant application for funds to build a bus barn for Windrider Transit.

足球滚球比分Commission Chairman Steve Caldwell said the bus barn is in the county’s master plan, and Park County has a chance to do it ahead of schedule.

“This is a great opportunity,” Caldwell said.

The commission also voted unanimously to direct county staff to work on improvements at the fairgrounds for additional public meeting space, and to move forward with a new part-time position at the county that would coordinate the Windrider transit system.
