County seeks public input on ARPA funds disbursement
La Plata County will host a virtual public meeting to gather community input on the disbursement of funds received via the American Recovery Plan Act (ARPA). The meeting will be held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Sept. 15. Attendees may access the meeting via this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83630373241?pwd=VS9FSlpIN0dqRHR4TVJoY0tWdFdNdz09
The county will receive approximately $10.9 million in ARPA funds and the Board of County Commissioners is seeking comments and suggestions from the public as to the best use of the funds. A supporting document from the National Association of Counties defines the eligible uses for the funds and can be viewed at https://www.naco.org/resources/featured/us-treasury-interim-final-rule-guidance-state-and-local-fiscal
Following the public meeting, county residents may weigh in via an electronic form – https://forms.laplata.co.us/Forms/ARPA. County staff will compile the submissions and make a recommendation to the BoCC, who will ultimately decide later this fall how the funds will be distributed.
