Lake County’s Board of Commissioners approved an airport hangar lease presented by Facilities and Lands Mgr. Dave Berman during their June 19 regular session.
Berman noted that the lease had been reviewed by the County’s legal counsel, Jim Bailey.
The County also accepted the resignation of former Lake County Building Official Tony West.
Discussion of establishment of an Early Learning Council hub, a concept that will replace the former Commission on Children & Families model, was tabled until this week for need of additional information.
The Commissioners approved funding requests from the Lake County Chamber of Commerce for its Munch & Movies summer series, as well as the upcoming Fourth of July fireworks show.
A contract with Klamath County Juvenile Department for detention beds was approved.
Commissioner Ken Kestner noted that this contract provides for the periodic juvenile detention related needs through an agreement with Klamath County, as Lake County lacks such a facility.
The Commissioners also approved an agreement for Special Transportation 5310 funds, which Admin. Asst. Denise Thorsted is necessary prior to receipt of the $131,122 in Special Transportation Funds that are used for services for seniors and disabled citizens.
Planning Dir. Darwin Johnson brought two Quit Claim deeds before the commissioners, which pertained to a pair of land parcels purchased at the 40 percent of real market value in the 14 days following the land sale.
Both are in the Plush area, with buyers identified as The Taylor Ranch and Dan and Laury Cron, and both were approved by unanimous vote of the Commissioners.

Resolution 2012-16 pertained to an increase of $2,000 to salaries in the Transports Department and a decrease of $500 to its materials and services as well as a decrease of $1,500 to the General Fund Contingency.
These adjustments are intended to accommodate for unanticipated increase in transports during the current year.

Resolution 2012-18 transferred $2,500 from materials and services to salaries for the Planning Department due an increase in duties performed plus benefits.
