Alfalfa County apportions CARES Act reimbursement proceeds
November 25, 2020
Commissioners in Alfalfa County were grateful for an easy agenda Monday morning as the Thanksgiving holiday quickly approaches.
Jay Hague, Stan Tucker and Marvin Woodall started with business as usual, approving previous meeting minutes, payroll warrants and blanket purchase orders. They accepted maintenance and operation payment warrants as well. There were no road-crossing permits for the week.
After that small stack of paperwork cleared, the three men approved a $15,000 transfer from Helena Rescue Maintenance and Operation account 1321-3-8214-2005 to the Helena Rescue Capital Outlay account 1321-3-8214-4110. This transfer was for a rescue cutter and rescue spreader that won't go out on bids because of being on state contracts.
Next, they acknowledged a resolution for $117,000 in CARES Act Reimbursement Proceeds. (The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, also known as the CARES Act, is a $2.2 trillion economic stimulus bill passed by Congress and signed into law by the president in March in response to the economic fallout of the Covid-19 pandemic in the United States.)
