There will be no proration of taxes, rents or other income or liabilities, except that the purchaser will pay, at or before closing, his prorate share of any real estate taxes that have been paid by the Secretary to the date of the foreclosure sale.

When making their bids, all bidders except the Secretary must submit a deposit totalling $23,944.37 in the form of a certified check or cashier’s check made out the Secretary of HUD.

The remainder of the purchase price must be delivered within 30 days of the sale or at such other time as the Secretary may determine for good cause shown, time being of the essence.

At the conclusion of the sale, the deposits of the unsuccessful bidders will be returned.

The Secretary may grant an extension of time within which to deliver the remainder of the payment. All extensions will be for 15-day increments for a fee of $500.00, paid in advance. The extension fee shall be in the form of a certified or cashier’s check made payable to the Secretary of HUD. If the high bidder closes the sale prior to the expiration of any extension period, the unused portion of the extension fee shall be applied toward the amount due.

If the high bidder is unable to close the sale within the required period, or within any extensions of time granted by the Secretary, the high bidder may be required to forfeit the cash deposit of, at the election of the foreclosure commissioner after consultation with the HUD representative, will be liable to HUD for any costs incurred as a result of such failure.

There is no right of redemption, or right of possession based upon a right of redemption, in the mortgagor or others subsequent to a foreclosure completed pursuant the Act. Therefore, the Foreclosure Commissioner will issue a Deed to the purchaser(s) upon receipt of the entire purchase price in accordance with the terms of the sale as provided herein. HUD does not guarantee that the property will be vacant.

The scheduled foreclosure sale shall be cancelled or adjourned if it is established, by documented written application of the mortgagor to the Foreclosure Commissioner not less than 3 days before the date of sale, or otherwise, that the default or defaults upon which the foreclosure is based did not exist at the time of service of this notice of default and foreclosure sale, or all amounts due under the mortgage agreement are tendered to the Foreclosure Commissioner, in the form of a certified or cashier’s check payable to the Secretary of HUD, before public auction of the property is completed.

PUBLIC NOTICE

Pursuant to the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act and the Wyoming Public Service Commission’s (Commission) Procedural Rules, notice is hereby given of Rocky Mountain Power’s (RMP or the Company) application requesting an accounting order to defer costs related to repowering wind plants or for alternate relief (Application).

RMP is a public utility as defined in Wyo. Stat. § 37-1-101(a)(vi)(C), subject to the Commission’s jurisdiction pursuant to Wyo. Stat. § 37-2-112. 

On December 30, 2019, RMP filed an Application requesting authority to [i] defer for future recovery, the costs associated with the repowering of its Glenrock I, Glenrock III, Rolling Hills, Seven Mile I, Seven Mile II, High Plains, McFadden Ridge, Dunlap, Marengo I, Marengo II and Goodnoe Hills wind facilities (Repowering Project); [ii] defer for future recovery, the costs and benefits associated with the repowering of its Leaning Juniper wind plant; and [iii] alternatively, if the Commission determines that the Repowering Project’s or Leaning Juniper’s costs and the Production Tax Credit (PTC) benefits are not appropriate for deferred accounting, the Company requests an order allowing it to remove the benefits of the Repowering Project and Leaning Juniper from the Energy Cost Adjustment Mechanism (ECAM) until the rate effective date of the Company’s next general rate case.

RMP states it is nearing completion of its Repowering Project and Leaning Juniper and its requested deferral will allow the Company to recover its prudently incurred costs from 2019 and those it will incur in 2020. RMP seeks to record and defer for later recovery, [a] the return on investment; [b] depreciation expense; [c] operation and maintenance costs; [d] property taxes; [e] wind taxes, if assessed; [f] incremental net power costs; and [g] PTC benefits, associated with its Repowering Project and Leaning Juniper, on a monthly basis, beginning when the facilities are placed into service, until rates from the Company’s next general rate case become effective.

RMP states it is seeking to appropriately match the realization by its customers of the benefits from the Repowering Project and Leaning Juniper, through the ECAM. The Company also notes its Repowering Project, and the associated costs, received Commission approval and were found to be in the public interest. Additionally, RMP states the Repowering Project and Leaning Juniper will be subject to a public process in which parties will have an opportunity to review these wind projects and any associated costs.

This is not a complete description of the Application. Interested persons may inspect the Application at the Commission’s offices in Cheyenne, Wyoming during regular business hours. The Application may also be viewed on the Commission’s data management system at https://dms.wyo.gov/external/publicusers.aspx.

Anyone desiring to file a public comment, statement, intervention petition, protest or request for a public hearing in this matter must do file with the Commission in writing on or before February 14, 2020. Any intervention request filed with the Commission shall set forth the grounds of the proposed intervention or request for hearing as well as the position and the interest of the petitioner in this proceeding.

If you wish to intervene in this matter or request a public hearing which you will attend and you require reasonable accommodation for a disability, call the Commission at (307) 777-7427 or write to the Commission, 2515 Warren Avenue, Suite 300, Cheyenne, Wyoming 82002. Communications-impaired persons may contact the Commission through Wyoming Relay at 711. Please refer to Docket No. 20000-575-EA-19 (Record No. 15414) in your communications.

Dated: January 14, 2020.

Chairman Burnett led those present in the Pledge of Allegiance. 

It was moved by Commissioner Noble, seconded by Commissioner Vickrey to approve the agenda with the addition of the County Attorney before Old Business to request sick leave for an employee.  Motion carried. 

The minutes of the preceding regular meeting of December 17, 2019 were approved and ordered filed on motion by Commissioner Vickrey, seconded by Commissioner Rawhouser.  Motion carried.

The Board approved the meeting schedule for 2020 being the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month, except:  the second March meeting to March 24th, the second August meeting to August 21st, and the first November meeting to November 6th.

Budget hearings were scheduled for June 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.  The March 24th, June 3rd, October 20th, and November 17th meetings will be held at the Marbleton Town Hall.  The 2020 schedule was adopted upon motion from Commissioner Bousman, seconded by Commissioner Rawhouser.  Motion carried. 

Billy Pape, Road and Bridge Superintendent, met with the Board to update activities.  He also advised the Board he had been contacted by Dave Smith and instructed to clear the way for the buildings going to the tower areas at Hogsback and Kismet.  He stated he believed winter is not an optimal time to undertake such tasks as doing so presents danger to personnel and equipment and will damage a newly constructed fence.  Chairman Burnett said Dave Smith is scheduled to meet with the Board later in the morning and requested Pape come back to the meeting at that time for discussion. 

Mike Jackson, representing Rio Verde Engineering, updated the Board on rock quantities for December. 

Eric Sackett, also representing Rio Verde Engineering, updated the Board on Lysimeter project with the bid due on January 20.

Lee Wright, FCC Construction, met with the Board with a request to borrow from the County’s stockpile of rocks for the Tom Brown River Project.  He stated his client had received approval to place the rocks in the river to prevent it from changing its current trajectory but the approval came after Wright could access his BLM permit to get rocks.  He stated the rocks would be replaced in the spring.  County Attorney, Mike Crosson, said he would like to research the Statutes regarding converting county property to private use.  It was moved by Commissioner Bousman, seconded by Commissioner Noble to table the discussion until the County Attorney can make a determination.  Motion carried.

Matt Gaffney, County Administrator, met with the Board to request approval of public advertisement for the sale of the 1969 Kaiser Wildland Fire Unit.  Commissioner Noble made the motion to approve the advertisement, Commissioner Bousman seconded.  Motion carried.

Dave Smith, Dave’s Electronics, met with the Board to provide information about the future needs of the Dispatch center.  He stated the current location is less than ideal for the scope of the project.  Sheriff Lehr joined the discussion to support Smith’s argument.  After discussion, Sheriff Lehr was instructed to assemble interested parties and come back to the Board with numbers and suggestions. 

Pape joined Smith to resume the discussion on the transport of the buildings for the Kismet and Hogsback tower sites.  Smith said he agreed with Pape about the timing and would look into other options.  He later suggested to the Board, the Kismet site could be postponed and the building used for the Luman tower with minimal cost to change out some of the equipment installed.  Chairman Burnett instructed Smith to proceed with that plan.

Jeness Saxton, County Assessor, met with the Board to submit a letter of resignation effective February 29, 2020.  All Board members thanked her for her many years of service and dedication.  Members of the public and the Board expressed their appreciation in a round of applause. Chairman Burnett said he would accept her letter. 

Mike Crosson, County Attorney, met with the Board to request a donation of sick leave from Sublette County Employees for one of his employees for January payroll.  It was moved by Commissioner Bousman, seconded by Commissioner Noble to grant the request.  Motion carried. 

It was moved by Commissioner Rawhouser, seconded by Commissioner Vickrey to approve accounts payable as audited by the Clerk.  Motion carried.

Old Business:

Commissioner Noble said he had talked to Kelly Crane and the open position at the Extension Office had not been filled internally and is now open for outside applications. Commissioner Noble, Commissioner Vickrey and County Administrator Matt Gaffney were directed to participate in the interviews of potential applicants. 

 He had also attended a meeting with the Lee Ditch Association with more meetings to come.

Commissioner Vickrey and Commissioner Rawhouser had nothing to report.

Commissioner Bousman said he is still participating in the good neighbor authority project with a conference call scheduled the next day.  He has several other meetings in the future.  Commissioner Bousman said he wanted to address the newspaper comment regarding the Magistrate appointment at the last Commissioner meeting and his lack of declaring a conflict of interest.  He wanted the record to reflect he did not believe the discussion was about the two individuals Judge Haws appointed but was about his obligation to bring his appointments to the County for approval.  His vote was to support the Judge in his right to appoint whoever he wants to appoint.  He also said he believes the Statute needs to be updated to reflect the current Judicial process as opposed to what it was intended to address when it was initiated. 

Public Comment:

Betty Fear said she could only hear the Chairman because he was speaking into the microphone but could not hear comments by the rest of the Board.  Dawn Ballou from Pinedale Online agreed with Ms. Fear. 

Dave Doorn, Sublette County Rural Health Care District, and Sharon Rutsch, met with the Board for a brief update of activities.  He stated the District is proceeding with their plans with the assumption the acquisition of the Sublette Center will be taking place. He also had preliminary drawings and cost estimates.  He stated the ask from the County would be $18 million.  Commissioner Noble made a motion to commit money not to exceed $20 million dollars for the Sublette Center portion, upon approval of the USDA loan and approval of the Sublette Center Board.  Commissioner Rawhouser seconded the motion.  After discussion, Chairman Burnett called for the vote.  Commissioner Noble and Commissioner Rawhouser voted yes, Chairman Burnett and Commissioner Bousman voted nay.  Commissioner Vickrey abstained from the vote.  Motion failed. 

It was moved by Commissioner Bousman to support, in concept, moving together in a joint effort between the Board of County Commissioners, the Sublette County Rural Health Care District, and the Sublette Center, in an effort to improve the quality of health care in Sublette County.  Commissioner Rawhouser seconded the motion.  Motion carried.

County Clerk, Carrie Long, reminded the Chairman the agenda request from Dave Doorn was a quick 15-minute update on activities.  She stated she did not believe it was fair to the citizens of Sublette County to be misled by the agenda when a Commissioner had planned to make a motion involving $20 million tax payer dollars. 

Commissioner Vickrey presented the Board with a list of ideas regarding live streaming the Commission meetings.  He requested permission to talk to Information Technology, Mike Christie, about researching live streaming options. 

No further business, the meeting was adjourned at 2:25 P.M.
