Klickitat County Researches Simcoe Purchase Possibility

Klickitat County Commissioners are doing some preliminary research into what it would take to purchase the Simcoe Mountains, and whether it would be in the County’s best interest to do so.  Commissioner Jim Sizemore says the mountains are currently owned by two private landholders.  Sizemore says the Simcoes have been heavily logged so it has not attracted other private interests, and the County feels if a government entity is going to purchase the land it should be done locally.  Sizemore says that way while government doesn’t have to pay property taxes, Klickitat County could take timber revenue money and keep the taxing districts involved whole.
