HR County Considers Use Of Federal Dollars

The Hood River County Commission is starting to think about what it will do with what’s expected to be a sizeable amount of federal money from the American Rescue Plan.  County Administrator Jeff Hecksel told Commissioners they are still awaiting specific guidance from the U.S. Treasury.  Commissioners Arthur Babitz and Bob Benton were selected to be an ad-hoc task force to examine how the funds can be best used and make some high-level recommendations to the entire panel.  Babitz noted one of the difficulties will be while there are specific programs within the American Rescue Plan with a specific carve-out, but at the end money is assigned to local government to make determination as where to fill in gaps.  Commissioners plan to hold a worksession on the subject after the committee develops some recommendations.
