Commission to consider approval of socioeconomic supplement

The commissioners are set to decide whether to officially approve the county’s new socioeconomic supplement after a public hearing on March 1. The supplement will be attached to the recently adopted Natural Resource Management Plan with a focus on the impact of natural resources on the health of Crook County.

Prepared by DJ&A of Missoula, the supplement was funded by the state through the same program that was used to create the natural resource management plan itself. Like the plan, the supplement can be used in the future to negotiate with federal entities and to pursue potential grants.
