Commission meets twice to finish

Brandon Johnson

Moffat County commissioners have an extra board meeting planned for this week so they can sign off payroll by the month’s end.

Commissioners have their regular meeting 8:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Moffat County Courthouse. They also will meet 2 p.m. Wednesday.

Commissioners won’t be able to sign the payroll next week because they will be at the Colorado Counties Incorporated meeting in Colorado Springs.

At Tuesday’s meeting, commissioners will prioritize their grant requests to the state for the December grant cycle.

The county will request two grants from the Department of Local Affairs in December, budget analyst Tinneal Gerber said.

One of the grant requests will be for about $300,000 for a facility to store a variety of supplies for road treatment supplies and the Pest Management department, Gerber said.

The county plans to match the grant with $200,000.

The second grant request will be for matching funds for capital projects.

Exactly how much the county will ask the state for with the second request wasn’t clear Friday afternoon, Gerber said.

Commissioners also will meet with District Attorney Bonnie Roesink Tuesday to discuss how the county classifies employees in her office.

The employees are paid for by the three counties in the 14th Judicial District.

Donna Zulian, an administrator at the District Attorney’s office, said offices in Routt and Grand counties plan to do the same.
