Johnson County Approves CMAQ Right-of-Way

A number of agreements, ranging from a law enforcement agreement with the Bighorn National Forest to a service agreement for generators at the judicial/justice center were signed by the Johnson County Commissioners at their last meeting.

A right-of-way utility easement certificate was approved and signed for CMAQ funding.
Road and Bridge Supervisor Scott Pehringer explains what the certificate is about.

Pehringer said this agreement goes with the two-year contract for 2014-2015 CMAQ dust abatement that will go to bid early in 2014. This agreement will set the cost of dust abatement in the county for two years, he said.

The commission signed a one-year agreement with Rocky Mountain Cummins of Gillette to provide service to the generators at both the judicial and justice centers.

A cooperative law enforcement agreement between the Johnson County Sheriff's Office and the Bighorn National Forest was approved by the commissioners. The agreement is a standard, five-year agreement thay have signed in the past.
