BONNERS FERRY — The Boundary County commissioners have requested the second portion of the American Rescue Plan Act funds at the June 21 meeting.

Chair Dan Dinning told the Bonners Ferry Herald that the commissioners have “not spent a penny” of the ARPA funds. He said the previous portion of the ARPA funds was designated as “revenue replacement” and the second portion of ARPA funds will be designated as such.

The funds will be placed in the same account and will be incurring interest.

Dinning said that the funds are in a trust account for “if and when” commissioners use the money.
