The Lincoln County Board of Commissioners heard from Vince Rob­inson and John Engels, representing the Lincoln County Enterprise De­velopment Corporation (LCEDC). They reviewed the projects and services provided by the LCEDC and their importance, and where staff time is spent. Robinson presented the 2018 budget request of $58,000. Last year’s bud­get request was $52,000, but the board kept the amount appropriation at $45,000. Robinson and Engels explained that the LCEDC’s reserves are de­pleted, and they would like the Board of Commission­ers to consider appropriat­ing the requested amount. The Board of Commission­ers is currently reviewing the budget for 2018, and took the request under consideration.
Robinson requested the approval of the submission of the Hole-in-the-Moun­tain Master Plan, which was approved by unani­mous consent.
