Lake County’s Board of Commissioners approved by unanimous vote a budget-related resolution regarding the upcoming Lake County Round-Up during their Tuesday, June 3, work session. Resolution 2013-15 addresses a contingency transfer in the amount of $19,200 for this year’s Labor Day weekend rodeo.
The transfer is necessary due to the rodeo’s sanctioning by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, which requires additional purse money paid up front as per PRCA requirements.
The resolution called for the transfer of the sum from the Lake County Round-Up Fund Contingency to materials and services.
Lake County Treasurer noted particular timeliness to the transfer request, due to a Wednesday, June 4, deadline associated with the prize money submission to the PRCA.
Also held during the Tuesday work session, held in Lakeview, as well as at the commissioners’ Wednesday, June 4, regular session in Fort Rock, was a public hearing for the 2014/15 budget, as previously approved by the Lake County Budget Committee.
There was no public comment received at either meeting related to the 2014/15 budget.
