County declares items as surplus

The county has a variety of items that were not in use or no longer needed and declared them as surplus property on Wednesday at their regular business meeting.

All of the items were declared to have either no value or a value of less than $200 and thus can be sold by private sale or donated to non-profit organizations.

A Canon copier 1060 was donated to the Conrad Boy Scouts and an Audiometer and Vision Tester were donated to the Big Sky Special Needs Cooperative.

A few of the other items include a keyboard, a HP One-touch scanner, a couple of TVs, a VCR, roll top desk and three phones with an answering machine.

If you feel you may be interested in any of these items, contact the commissioners at 271-4010 for more information.

On a motion by Commissioner Sandy Broesder and a second by Commission Chairman Cynthia Johnson, the application for the County Health Department for Tricare-provider status in order to receive insurance payments was approved.

The motion passed on a 2-0 vote. Commissioner Joe Christiaens was absent due to health reasons.

The next regular meeting of the commission will be on Feb. 1 at 10 a.m. in their office.

The public is always welcome and encouraged to attend to see their government at work.
