Jefferson County Commission Update


December 14, 2016

Hi Folks,

At our regular meeting last week, we approved Resolution 36-2016 which creates the Sugar Beet Row RSID. We also approved Resolutions 36 and 37 which rescinded Resolutions 25 and 26 that set up the referendum on the Ambulance District and set the powers of the Board. We will hold the Public Hearing for the creation of the Ambulance District next week at 2:00 during our regular meeting in the Clerk and Recorders Building.

We are in the process of reviewing Proposals for contractors to do the stream work in the Jefferson Slough. We will create a list of contractors qualified to do the work and will sent the bid packages out to them after the first of the year.

FYI: I read an interesting article out of the Washington Post that didn’t get a lot of coverage locally. In 2015 deaths from Heroin surpassed gun deaths in the United States. The article says that as recently as 2007 gun deaths outnumbered heroin deaths by 5 to 1.

Heroin is just a part of the overall deaths from Opioid abuse. Opioid deaths in 2015 were 33,092. To put that into context, the City of Helena has a population of a little over 30,000.
