Commission to consider new Legislature policy

PNT Staff Report

At their meeting today, Roosevelt County Commissioners are scheduled to consider a policy requiring capital outlay requests to the Legislature to come before the commission in advance if the county might need to act as fiscal agent in the project.

The meeting is set for 9 a.m. in the Roosevelt County Courthouse commission room.

According to the sample policy from Grant County, the procedure is intended to allow the commission and county personnel to identify needs, understand proposed projects and prioritize applications. Applicants would have to provide information about the project, including cost, public benefit, design and required maintenance once complete.

Also included in the agenda are reports from county officials and the Roosevelt County Chamber of Commerce.
