Feds’ payment on public land higher this year

The federal government will make higher-than-normal payments to Malheur County for its federally managed public land that is not taxable.

The amounts for the 2107 Payments in Lieu of Taxes have been announced, and while the county’s payment will be greater than in the past, it is unknown how much will be carried over to the next fiscal year as cash on hand.
