Jeff Co Commissioners rank CARES act proposals

“Faced with nearly 40 funding proposals worth just more than $1 million combined, the Board of Jefferson County Commissioners struggled to decide which would get a slice of the county‚Äôs $663,515 in coronavirus relief funds.

That money must be allotted and reported to the state Department of Commerce by Nov. 30. Chosen proposals must address immediate impacts of the pandemic, and those proposals must be eligible under the CARES Act or risk being found ineligible in an audit, which would put the county on the hook to pay back the money.”
