August 13, 2015 I The Lovell Chronicle I 7 DAVID PECK A boat gets ready to embark on a peaceful boat ride on the lake earlier this summer at Horseshoe Bend. Commissioners BY TAMMY THORNBERRY Big Horn County com- missioners requested to have action taken by Trea- surer Becky Lindsey and Sheriff Ken Blackburn to determine how payment for missing oil can be recov- ered at their regular meet- ing July 2 i. The county came into possession of the Schneider oil well due to unpaid taxes; according to Lindsey. Since that time oil was removed from the site but it is un- clear by whom. The coun- ty obtained a civil judg- ment against Schneider Oil Corp., but efforts to collect on it have been hindered by misplacement of the file in the county attorney's office. Current . prosecutor Kim Adams said she and her staff have performed "due diligence" in search- ing for the file everywhere in the office. Former coun- attorney Michelle Burns told Lindsey the file was there when she left. Blackburn, Lindsey and County Clerk Lori Small- Wood plan to travel to Cody to meet with Delissa Minn- ick, who served as an attor- ney for the Bureau of Land Management in 2012. It is • hoped she can shed light on the situation in an effort to collect payment for the oil. IN OTHER BUSINESS: • Sheriff Blackburn asked the commissioners to sign a contract with Mo- investigate Schneider Oil issue torola for communication equipment that comes with a five-year warranty. He reported his department has been busy with three Search and Rescue calls, a motor vehicle fatality, in- vestigating aggravated as- sault and attempted mur- der charges and assisting other agencies with cases including a fire at Barry's Landing located on the Big Horn River. • Public Health Re- sponse Coordinator Kami Neighbors presented the board with a memo of un- derstanding between Washakie County and Big Horn County that provides compensation for her time. She also informed the com- mission that grant money was received from the state to provide equipment need- ed such as masks and haz- ard suits in the event of an Ebola outbreak. • Commissioner Felix Carrizales said he was go- ing to attend interviews of five candidates for a new public health nurse. The position is currently being temporarily filled by Bill Crampton. • Newly appointed Public Health Officer Dr. Brendan Fitzsimmons re- ported he is "learning as he goes" fulfilling his duties, which include such things as ordering vaccines, sign- ing death certificates, etc. • County resident Ken George inquired about pos- sibly purchasing some posts that are being stored be- hind the Search and Rescue building. The commission- ers said they would talk to Road and Bridge Foreman Shannon Hovey and have him give George a call. • Zeller Construction was awarded a contract to perform soffitt and fascia work on the library build- ing. Commission Chair- man Jerry Ewen recused himself from the process as he felt he had a conflict of interest. • Attorney Scott Kath of Powell was appointed to the position of Board of Equalization Hearing Of- ricer. Ewen said he would like the board to meet with Attorney Ed Luhm of Wor- land to discuss him han- dling civil cases for the county. Ewen added that no decision would be made without Big Horn County Attorney Kim Adams being present. • Treasurer Lindsey told the board the county library currently has ap- proximately $180,000 in its checking account. She asked if the money should be transferred to the coun- ty reserve fund as all li- brary bills are currently being paid by the county. The commissioners agreed the money should be trans- ferred unless some reason arose not to do so.
