Deschutes County will get an increase from the federal government in timber payments.  Overall, 36 local governments in Oregon are receiving a total of just over $14 million in "Timber Payments"  for the 2012 fiscal year.  The payments are part of a record $393 million in  these allocations to nearly 2,000 local governments to compensate for non-taxable federal land in under their jurisdictions.  Deschutes County's payment increased by a sizable amount, from $472,000 in 2011, to nearly $731,000 this year. Crook County's amount of almost $319,000 is about $9,000 more than last year, while Jefferson County's nearly $269,000 is up about $66,000 from fiscal 2011.
