GRANT COUNTY TITLE III FUNDING

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that Grant County, Ore. received "safety-net" revenues under the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act of 2000, PL 106-393. The Grant County Court elected to designate 15 percent of its safety-net payment for projects under Titles II and III. Of those funds, 30 percent has been allocated to "county projects" under Title III.

County projects under Category (5) of Title III includes fire prevention education and county fire prevention planning. Grant County intends to contribute $50,000 to the Northeast Oregon Forests Resource Advisory Committee Title II project, "Canyon Creek Thinning and Fuels Reduction."

Review of the Malheur National Forest System lands by forest fire planning staff shows that the Canyon Creek area is the highest priority area on the forest from a wildland interface standpoint. To initiate planning for the activity, under the Restoration Business Plan for the Malheur National Forest, areas within Canyon Creek Watershed were selected for contract environmental analysis and biological evaluation in 2003. The intent is to use Title III Grant County funds and National Fire Plan dollars to complete the NEPA and Biological Evaluation.

The Grant County Court has opened a forty-five (45) day public comment period to invite written comments from individuals wishing to offer input concerning these planning activities to be conducted under Category (5) of Tittle III county funds.

Comments must be submitted to the Grant County Court, 201 S. Humboldt, Ste 280, Canyon City, OR 97820 by April 14, 2003.
