We are in the process of completing the final Brownfield Assessments. We received a grant in 2018 for $600,000 and have completed multiple assessments on 11 properties, and are working on finalizing assessments on two other properties. This program was very successful and we are looking forward to seeing the positive impacts to our community.

We are finalizing the design for the second floor of the Judicial Building and will be putting that project out to bid over the next few weeks.

We are starting the 2021 Budget Process. We will be working with Elected Officials and Department Heads to prepare the budget.

We have opened up our Fremont County Restart Business Grant Funding. This program will help businesses in Fremont County recover COVID related expenses. Information can be found on our website at: www.fremontco.com.

We are finalizing our 2019 Financial Audit. We will set up a time in July for the auditor to present it to the BOCC.

We have completed the 2019 countywide Cost Allocation Plan. This plan allows us to track the in-direct costs incurred by each department in their operation. We are finalizing the Detention Center Plan and the Department of Public Health and Environment Plan.

We continue to monitor our revenues and expenses closely to see the financial impact of COVID-19 and will make necessary adjustments quickly.

We have begun discussions about applying for a second EPA Brownfield Grant. We are forming a group to determine how to move forward. We are anticipating that our funds from the current grant will be expended this year.

We are reviewing all of the requirements for the CARES Act. We will be getting draft agreements out to the entities for their review. We have to opt in to the Department of Local Affairs by July 7, 2020. These funds can reimburse us for COVID related expenses from March 1, 2020 to December 30, 2020.

We had the kickoff meeting for the Hazard Mitigation Plan on Thursday, June 18. This plan is intended to identify, assess, and reduce the long-term risks to life and property from hazard events. This is a county-wide plan and includes the county, municipalities and special districts.

Over the next few month we will be preparing our mid-year budget. This will give us a good idea of where we are in comparison to budget, and if we need to make any changes. This is also our first step in the 2021 budget process, which will kick off in August.

We are finalizing the CARES Act Agreements with the Cities and Towns in Fremont County. When everything is finished we will get that information submitted to DOLA so we can receive reimbursement of COVID related expenses.

Fremont County has been awarded a $1,000,000 Department of Local Affairs Energy and Mineral Impact Grant to build a Community Center at Pathfinder Park. We are planning to start the project this fall.

We are going through the process of submitting all of the paperwork for FEMA reimbursements for COVID-19. We continue to look for other funding options as well.

We are monitoring our revenues and expenses closely to see what the impact is and will make necessary adjustments quickly.

We have created a county webpage with COVID-19 information. There is a link on our homepage at www.fremontco.com. We make updates to this page as information comes in.
