Carla O’Dell, Lincoln County Highway Supt., informed the County Board that irrigation companies have inquired about purchasing used culverts that are not usable by the road department.  The county would make more revenue selling the used culverts this way than selling them as scrap iron.  It was suggested to sell the used culverts at 1/3 the price of a new culvert.  County Board directed her to work with the County Attorney’s office to draft a resolution for consideration on this matter.

County Clerk, Rebecca Rossell, will check on a budget question concerning this project and if possible the County Board will consider setting a new date for bids with construction during the 2021-2022 fiscal year.

 

County Board held discussion concerning the proposed federal ’30 X 30’ plan.  This is part of the executive order signed by President Biden on January 27, 2021.  The executive action will direct the Interior Department to outline steps to achieve the President’s commitment to conserve at least 30% each of our lands and waters by the year 2030. Discussion included the basic right to own land and that everyone is a stakeholder in this, not just the people that own land, as it will affect the entire tax base. Board members discussed a possible public hearing and adoption of a resolution in the future.

 

Hear concerns from Elected Officials, Department Heads and their representative.
