The Roosevelt County Commissioners met Nov. 30 and discussed two separate grants.
The board approved signing a fully federal $61,500 Homeland Security grant that would provide more radios for public works departments in Roosevelt County.
It also approved signing an emergency management performance grant for the Department of Emergency Services in the amount of $52,238. The county is required to match that amount and will do $44,638 as a hard match and $7,600 as a soft match.
The grant will go toward various aspects of the DES program including maintenance.
The commissioners continued the meeting and worked to iron out the logistics of returning property to a community member from the museum. Joey Neutgens was present and said his mother’s belongings were in the Wolf Point Museum and the museum board denied returning the items without certain documentation.
The commissioners said they would need to do a small amount of paperwork, but noted that the items would likely be approved for release to Neutgens’ mother in the next few weeks.
The board then approved hiring Michelle Flauth as the civil clerk at the Roosevelt County Sheriff’s Department starting at a G2R2 level.
