The Adams County Record Wednesday, August 29, 2012 Adams County Commissioners Meeting Continued from frontpage completed by September 30 and will involve instal- lation of new camera equipment through- out the jail. The Adams County Commissioners felt that the five phases would allow the County to use funds from either the PILT (Payment in Lieu of Taxes) funds or the Capital Improvement Fund, which is funded by a judgment against the original con- tractor of the building. Lt. Zollman admitted that the current equipment had not been maintained on a regular basis, but the new equipment will be. Celeste Chrest, Supervisor of the 911 Call Center, will be relocating out of the county next month. Chrest has built a team of 911 operators who have worked together for quite a long time, and her lead- ership will be missed. Lt. Zollman also reported to the Commissioners that his Department had con- ducted a local drug raid that has resulted in two arrests and the confisca- tion of several marijuana plants. The jail has 23 State of Idaho prisoners this week. Packer John Cabin Park, located east of New Meadows, was the topic of a long discussion over whether to grant access to a local land- owner through the park. Dean Dryden and his wife told the Commissioners that they have a court- ordered access to their land for emergencies only through the Goose Creek Subdivision, but they would like to have primary access through the Park grounds. Commissioner Chairman Bill Brown is opposed to giving up any rights to county owned properties and particu- larly to having people use park grounds for access to their property. The Commissioners told the Drydens that they will have to submit their plans for the adjacent land through the County's Planning and Zoning Commission as a subdivision before any other options for access can be considered. Prosecuting Attorney Myron Gabbard helped the County unravel ownership of a six-acre parcel locat- ed on Mesa Hill that had been seized in a drug raid. Income from the proper- ty must only be used for drug related expenditures, but the County has had to accept the property subject to at least three prior liens against it. The property will now go off the prop- erty tax rolls until it can be sold. The property has not been legally split from the original ten-acre parcel, and that will need to be done before it can be sold. Local Forest Rangers Greg Lesch and Kim Pearson reported to the Commissioners on cur- rent projects in their dis- tricts. A fourth fire was burning on Midvale Hill, and appears to have been started by careless use of fire. Ranger Lesch said that current predictions are for for the $800,000 available for funding in 2013. Ranger Pearson said that her department has slowed down the process for open- ing an additional thirteen miles of snowmobile trails located within Adams County. Commissioner Mike Paradis reminded Pearson that current for- est service policy will not allow any net increase in at least thirty days of con- mileage for snowmobil- tinued hot and dry weath- ing and that an increase in er, which will keep the fire danger high throughout the area. Ranger Lesch also reported that the East Fork bridge will be completed in the next two weeks, which will allow travel off Highway 95 up the East Fork of the Weiser River for the first time in sev- eral years. Ranger Pearson reported that thirty-three projects have been submit- ted for RAC funding this year and will be competing Contest encourages innovation on the fact that twenty- first century classrooms can be inspirational places of learning, where highly skilled teachers effectively use technology tools to encourage problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration and creativity--skills necessary for college and workplace success.

The contest is based Adams County will mean that Valley County must give up those miles. Ranger Lesch said that the Forest Service will open the bids for improv- ing Cottonwood Road next week. The Service has bud- geted over $600,000 for improvements to that road.

County Engineer Trevor Howard reported that FEMA will probably not fund the new road construction along Wilson Road located above the new Goodrich Creek bridge. FEMA had com- mitted verbally to $125,000 in funding for that proj- ect, but now has raised the bar to the point that the County cannot satisfy them for funding. Local resident Pete Johnston requested that the County consider a. proposal to create a public parking lot on the ground locat- ed behind the Extension Office in Council. The Commissioners will take the matter under advise- ment as a way to improve the use of the vacant par- cel. Thanlc.
