Consideration of Additional Funding to Broadband Services Manager
At the July 28, 2020 Commissioners' work session, Jason Cox and Eric Hittle, Archuleta County Broadband Services Managers, asked the Board of County Commissioners (BoCC) for additional funding in 2020 to cover the expenses required to bring more broadband into Archuleta County. The BoCC had agreed when the 2020 budget was approved that the county would appropriate $50,000 to Broadband if additional PILT funding was received. (The additional PILT funding was, in fact, received.) An added $10,000 would bring the total 2020 contribution by Archuleta County to $60,000, which is equal to what the Town of Pagosa Springs has committed. This agenda item requests the Board to direct staff to prepare a Supplemental Budget Resolution for consideration at the August 18th BoCC meeting in order to fund the $60,000 from the Commissioner's Contingency Fund to the Broadband Services Managers in 2020.
