Although worried for the future for a financially troubled Cloud Peak Energy Corp., Campbell County officials aren’t concerned the Powder River Basin coal producer will miss paying millions of dollars owed for its 2018 tax bill.

County commissioners approved a payment schedule for Blackjewel LLC that, if the company makes its payments, will take care of about $8.6 million in back taxes owed along with paying a hefty 18 percent interest rate to the county.
