(Neb.)-Sheridan County Commissioner Happenings
(SHERIDAN COUNTY)-The Sheridan County commissioners met on Thursday morning for their meeting this week since their regularly scheduled meeting fell on New Year’s Eve. Present were chairman James Krotz, commissioners Jack Andersen and Dan Kling, and deputy county clerk Gerri Ann Landreth.
As required by law, the board reorganized for the coming year. They determined that their notice of board meetings will ordinarily be published in the Sheridan County Journal Star, which was designated the official newspaper of record, but that it will be considered sufficient public notice to post the date and time of meetings in the Rushville Post Office, Security First Bank, and the Courthouse lobby. The purpose of this provision is to enable the board to convene in unusual circumstances when newspaper publication deadlines would otherwise be prohibitive.
On January 14th, the board will consider setting regular dates for meetings in 2013.
Dan Kling was elected chairman and James Krotz was elected vice-chair for 2013. The commissioners were also appointed to represent the county on the following boards:
Andersen will serve on the Panhandle Mental Health board, the Region 1 Office of Human Development, and the Sheridan County Tourism Board.
Kling will serve on the Solid Waste Agency of Northwest Nebraska, Aging Office of Western Nebraska, Panhandle Public Health, and Panhandle Area Development District.
Krotz will serve on Northwest Community Action Partnership, Region 23 Emergency Management, Generations in Volunteer Service (GIVE), and Sheridan County Extension Board.
Security First Bank, First National Gordon, and Bank of the West were designated as official depository banks of county funds.
County clerk Sindy Coburn was designated the official contact person for the Nebraska Intergovernmental Risk Management Agency. Deputy Clerk Gerri Ann Landreth was designated as the alternate contact person.
Road Superintendent Tom Kuester informed the board that requests for bids have been published for the purchase of two gravel trailers, for the hauling of approximately 120 loads of red rock gravel from South Dakota and for the sealing of cracks in approximately eight miles of blacktop roads. Bids will be opened at the January 14th meeting.
The board will meet next on Monday, January 14th, at 9:00 a.m. All meetings are open to the public and visitors are welcome.
An agenda is kept continually current and readily available for public inspection in the office of the county clerk during normal business hours. Except for items of an emergency nature, the agenda shall not be altered later than 24 hours before the scheduled commencement of the meeting.
