(Neb.)-Sheridan County Commissioner Meeting Happenings
(SHERIDAN COUNTY)-The Sheridan County Commissioners met on Monday morning for a regularly scheduled meeting. Present were commissioners Jack Andersen, Dan Kling and James Krotz and county clerk Sindy Coburn.
Acting as the Board of Equalization, the commissioners approved four correction sheets presented by county assessor Trudy Winter. The first two were to remove from the tax rolls a mobile home sold by Jerry Halverson and personal property sold by Lazy K-Bar Land and Cattle Co. The second two were to change the classification on two parcels of property owned by Edward and Glenna Vodicka from dryland crops to grass.
The commissioners discussed the upcoming election of Nebraska Association of County Officials (NACO) board members and how commissioner Andersen, who is a convention delegate, might vote.
Road superintendent Tom Kuester reported that his department has purchased 500 tons of millings from the State for $5,000. The millings will be stockpiled at the Lakeside yard for use in the southern end of the county.
The commissioners approved the use of the county bulldozer to level an area of the Rushville landfill. This is part of a cooperation agreement with SWANN for the disposal of heavy equipment tires.
The board also discussed with Kuester the possible continuation of the red-rock experiment in 2013. They anticipate purchasing approximately 120 loads, enough to pave up to 3.5 miles of road with a mix of native and red-rock gravel. Bids for hauling the rock will probably begin early in the new year.
The commissioners also met with Sheriff Terry Robbins to conduct their quarterly inspection of the county jail.
All commissioner meetings are open to the public, and visitors are always welcome. For proceedings and a complete list of minutes from past meetings in a searchable database, visit www.sheridancountynebraska.com.
