03.21.22 AM - BOCC
Commissioners discuss again how to prioritize ARPA spending and also, how to justify it. They also discuss the new communications system the county may switch will work well in Okanogan County and how Fire Districts will pay for the new radios they’ll need.
Naomi Peasley gives her monthly report to the Commissioners and then discusses how she feels like she’s being hammered by the community, the Fair Advisory Committee (FAC) and the BOCC. A long discussion follows with commissioners pointing out the support they feel they’ve given her and how they’re trying to repair the bad feelings between her and the FAC. Several members of the audience make statements in support of NP. The commissioners decide it would be a good idea for the BOCC to hold a joint meeting with the FAC.
