Based on a new appraisal, Superintendent Kowalkowski issued a two-year permit for $73.50 each year. However, due to staff error, the permit was issued under the old $25.00 fee.
Permit expired at the end of 1976 and was not renewed due to staff error. Mr. Shelden used the pasture two years without a permit.
Grazing situation reviewed again by Superintendent Kowalkowski and Appraiser Reid Malin in 1978. Although the fee was again appraised at 73.50, retroactive to 1976, it was not collected for two more years.
