Decisions:
• Commissioners signed an intergovernmental agreement with the State of Colorado for participation in the Colorado Emergency Fire Fund. Moffat County will contribute about $8,000 to the fund, which is expected to total about $750,000 this year. Moffat County has never needed to use the fund, which is designed to help local governments offset the costs of fighting wildfires.
• Commissioners signed a lease agreement between Moffat County and the Greater Routt and Moffat Narcotics Enforcement Team allowing the county's insurance to cover one of the taskforce's vehicles.
• Commissioners signed an agreement saying they don't oppose the state granting an exemption to JW Operating Company for gas drilling. The exemption will allow the company to drill 50 feet closer to a section line than they normally would be allowed to.
• Commissioners approved a personnel requisition for the road and bridge department for a heavy equipment operator. The new employee will replace one who recently resigned.
• Commissioners approved a personnel requisition for the treasurer's office by a 2-1 vote. Commissioner Saed Tayyara voted against the requisition because the employee who is resigning has not turned in a letter of resignation.
• Commissioners approved a grant request from the Clerk's office to the Colorado Secretary of State's Office. If the Secretary of State approves the request, the Clerk's office will use the money to pay for handicap-accessible ramps at the Maybell Community Center.
