The Adams County Record Wednesday, December 12, 2012 Page 3 Continued from front page found in the investigation. Chairman Brown said he was frustrated that it had cost the State of Idaho several thousand dollars to conduct an investiga- tion that could have been cleared up with a sim- ple phone call between departments. County Auditor Folke reviewed the high points of the recent County audit, with most of the elected officials present for the talk. Adams County ended the 2012 Fiscal Year (which ended September 30, 2012) with a net gain in funds of $595,000. The County had $5,440,000 on deposit and held fixed assets of $6,153,000 after deducting for deprecia- tion. The County contrib- uted $216,000 to PERSI to fund county employee pensions, and also owes $985,000 in bonded indebtedness. The State of Idaho will require the county to close the Goodrich Landfill in the next few years and that is estimated to cost $800,000. Auditor Folke reported that the net cash gain in 2012 was distributed over the budget funds, with the General Fund ending the year with $455,000. The Justice fund has been run- ning through their bud- geted funds before the end of each year, but in 2012 it ended with $108,000 in the bank. Sheriff-elect Ryan Zollman reported that his department has complet- ed the required ICRMP training sessions. The agreement with Idaho Power Company for pro- viding secui'ity in Hells Canyon has been final- ized and should be ready next week for the Commissioner's approval. There are fifteen prisoners from the State of Idaho in the jail this week. The department has received $1,000 to provide addi- tional DUI patrols during the holiday season. Weed Department SupervisorDave Klaw has begun the rebuild- ing of thefire-damaged Weed Building. Most of the damaged interior has been removed, and the new trusses should be delivered later this week. When the roofing is ready, the damaged portions will be removed in sec- tions to protect the build- ing from winter weather during the rebuilding. Chairman Brown reported that Southwest District Health Department has ruled that all processed wood received at the New Meadows Transfer Site and at the Goodrich Landfill must be buried at the site and cannot be burned in the county. The County had intended to remove the wood and burn it at the old Boise Cascade pond in Council. Deb Wilson appeared before the commissioners to request $300 as a cash match toward a grant that is being awarded to the Council area to improve economic conditions. The commissioners denied the request. Bill Brown com- mented that he had con- stituents who didn't want their tax dollars spent on promoting the area. Continued from frontpage $300 electric bill. The response was akin to a rain-soaked landslide! The foundation has received over $3,000 in donations so far. These donations have allowed the additional purchase of multiple strands of weatherproof, energy- efficient LED lights. Soon after the commu- nity tree lighting, volun- teers will be hard at work decorating the trees in Dorsey Warr Memorial Park with dazzling new white lights. Grateful citizens can now enjoy many happy years of hol- iday lights in town, with guaranteed low power bills. The community of New Meadows is grateful t to New Meadows City Hall Customer Service Specialist Jessi Martin and her merry band of helpers for organiz- ing this magical eve- ning. Helpers included Don, DeOle, Doug, Bentley (Santa's furry elf), Jeff, Julie, Brett, Stacy, Audrey, Tim, Stan, Danna, Delish Catering (Shannon), Browns Market, the Meadows Valley Public Library, and the cookie makers of the Senior Citizens Center. Additional dona- tions were collected dur- ing the evening to supply the Food Bank with sev- eral bags of food. (See more thank you notes in the Thank You section of the Record.)
