The Josephine County Commissioners during their Wednesday Weekly Business Session allocated Title III Secure Rural Schools funding to several firewise and fuels reduction programs.
SRS funding to the county totals $400,082. Josephine County Forestry has put in a request for $122,000, the Oregon Department of Forestry for $255,000, Josephine County Emergency Services for $100,000 and reimbursements to Search and Rescue in the amount of $10,000 for a total of $457,000 in requests. The request amount is higher than the fund totals to ensure the money will be spent and not returned to the federal government.
The commissioners also approved the development of a new hanger access area at the Illinois Valley Airport. The airport is utilizing a 90 percent match grant from the FAA to the amount of approximately $964,000 for design and construction of the project.
