At that time the county will pay $5 for each coyote killed; the state already pays an additional $1 per animal. A form is being developed for landowners or operators to sign certifying that coyotes were killed in Lincoln County. Jim Covington, county trea- surer, told the commissioners that he has agreed to meet with coyote hunters on-site to inspect the carcasses and clip the tips of the ears off. The ears will be clipped so the pelts won't be ruined by cutting the ears off along with the skin connecting them. If anyone brings ears into his office, the ears must be connected and placed into clear baggies. Any disputes about whether the $5 bounty should be paid, will have to be decided by the county commissioners. The commissioners decided to offer the bounty for coyotes rather than participate in the United States Department of Agriculture program to control There were no comments from the public d .uring the December 8 hearing for the 2004 Town of Hugo budget. Highlights of the budget in- clude an increase in the mini- mum water use fee from $45 to $51 per quarter due to increased expenses. This will also allow the town to replenish the fund. It cost $,30,000 to repair the well this year. There are no other increases in the budget, which was ap- proved by the board. Gary En- sign, town clerk, said that the auditor has been suggesting for several years that money left in the health care fund be put into the general fund. The health care fund was established sev- eral years ago to recruit Dr. Rich- ard Book to Hugo and the origi- nal funds came from Hugo's gen- eral fund. By transferring the $14,000 back into the general fund, the town will actually be pa ng itself back, he explained. " The conservation trust fund has $20,000 budgeted for 2004. Ensign said this money may be used for a new roof on the swim- ming pool building and work done to the Railroad Park. Because the playground equip- ment is held up because of con- tract negotiations, Ensign said that project will not be paid for until 2004 even though it was budgeted for in 2003. rogram the predators because cuts.
