These funds are payments made to six local counties instead of property taxes on National Forest lands within those counties. Ranger Kim Pierson from the New Meadows District is acting as the coordinator for the grant proposals this year. She announced that with $70,000 in funding held over from 2012, there will be over $800,000 available for funding 2013 projects. Congress enacts legislation every year to designate RAC funds for the counties, so very little long-range planning can be done with the money avail- able. Teacher Courtney Fisher from Council Elementary School pro- posed a hands-on pro)- ect for her second grade students, involving sage hen habitat in Indian Valley. If her proposal is accepted it will be the second year she has had $2,000 available for her students to study the sage hen. lane Cropp from Payette National Forest submitted the largest request of the day when she proposed funding over $90,000 in trail maintenance, with two projects in Valley County and one pro)ect in Adams County. The work would be done by Northwest Youth Corps workers headquartered out of Eugene, Oregon, with additional work being done by local con- tractors. Commissioner Joe Holmes objected to the rationale behind a $4,000 project proposed for the Pole Creek area to repair some stream crossi.ngs after the recent timber sale in the area. Commissioner Holmes said he felt that timber sales should include funding to restore the land after the sale with- out having to add funds to complete the cleanup. County Engineer Trevor Howard pre- sented requests for final payments for the Goodrich Creek Bridge which wilLbe completed this week. Work contin- ues on constructing the new segment of Wilson Road above the bridge. Engineer Howard dis- cussed strategies for get- ting FEMA funding for some of that construc- tion because the dam- age was done during the June, 2010, flooding in the area. Lt. Ryan Zollman made the Sheriff Department report for the past week. He noted that the department will lose one of its two drug sniffing dogs when Patrolman Marshall Allen leaves the force next week. The dog had been a gift to the coun- ty but Patrolman Allen received the companion training with the animal a couple of years ago. The jail had seventeen State inmates last week but is expected to check in seven female inmates this week. These will be some of the first women assigned to Adams County Jail in some time. In other business before the Commissioners, Extension Agent Shanna Hamilton reported on the County Fair results. Her office will be con- ducting a "Jeopardy" style game in local schools with funding from the Idaho Beef Council. The game-will emphasize the facts and benefits of eating Idaho beef. Delores Larson brought paint colors to the meeting to get Commissioners' approv- al for repainting the woman's shelter located south of the Courthouse. Rose Advocates manag- es the facility and wants to repaint the building to match the Courthouse.
