Ford explained the PNF has roughly $80 million of settlement funds left to spend and that the Forest Service is "still committed on working with the county on ways to spend that." He said that the U.S. Code states the money may not be spent "outside of the footprint of the fires." Thrall said the settlement agreement and the U.S. Code are open to interpretation. She said that is why she and Ford have been working on finding ways to use some of the funds to create jobs in the county. Swofford explained to the meeting attendees that when the Forest Service has a timber sale, 25 percent of that sale Comes back to the county for schools and roads. Ford said the Forest Service is not required to use the funds in partnership with the county, as they are not the result of a timber sale, but said, "If we work together in partnership citizens will know we are working on behalf of the community." Thrall said it is the position of the county that 25 percent of the settlement funds should belong to the county. Photography and filming Ford said he wished to quell rumors that the USFS directive was going to be used to stop people from taking pictures in the forest. He said the directive is "for commercial filming to get a permit," and passed the meeting attendees a news release from the USFS chief. The release states, "Professional and amateur photographers will not need a permit unless they use models, actors or props; work in areas where the public is generally not allowed; or cause additional administrative costs." Ford did not know how that might apply to local businesses that film advertisements in the forest and did not know the cost of a permit. He said the directive was intended to stop commercial filming when there was "a risk of resource damage; a disruption of public use;'or a risk to public health or safety." The council voted to revisit the subject at the next meeting after more research. COMMUNITY CORNER WEEKLY GATHERINGS' MEETINGS AND CLUBS b00ct. b00ct.
