Just another silly 'did you know' question.
On August 5th Commissioners Cribbins, Sweet, and Main gave 84.3 miles of our Coos County Roads into the Coquille Indian Tribe Transportation Inventory.
Approximately 23 different roads are impacted. The exact multiple locations on each road were requested several times, verbally and in writing, since July 1st. The requests were summarily ignored. And don't bother to look in the BOC August 5th Agenda or on the BOC Coos County web site because the information, including the list of road areas and the agreement, is not there. You can, however find the MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) and the list of road names with their mileage in the July 1st Commissioner Meeting Agenda pages 18-21.
Why the multiple small areas of road locations are needed specifically by the Tribe for their school buses and getting to work (per the MOU) was not explained. What 'up-grades' (that the county would be required to maintain) and 'economic development' federal funds (per the MOU) they would then be qualified to apply for was additionally not addressed.
What will the Bureau of Indian Affairs with Indian trust lands rules be?
How many Tribal laws, (such as no firearms) and federal strings would then be in effect?
The question of why the good-condition, asphalted 8 continuous miles of the Fairview
Road are needed was ignored.
No answers, no explanations, and no commissioner discussion followed. Just the aye, aye, aye vote.
This is not about the Tribe. It is about the infrastructure and finances of Coos County being used to divide our community into special interest groups against each other.
Divide and Conquer?
Why are the commissioner-signed agreements such as this agreement, the ORC (Oregon Resources Corp.) open ended agreement, the Bay Area Enterprise Zone Agreement, the CEP Agreement, disposal of the solid waste facility agreement, etc, etc not on the County site for the citizens to see, both before and after they sign? There are many very experienced knowledgeable retired citizens in Coos County who can, viewing past
history, read these agreements much better than the establishment few.
Vote for the “Voice of the Voters” Home Rule Charter in November and bring some
common sense and stability back to Coos County.
