(Neb.)- Sheridan County Commissioners Approve Road Plans
(Rushville)-The Sheridan County Commissioners met at their regularly scheduled meeting yesterday morning.
The proposed plan for Black Tailed Prairie Dog Management was subjected to a final review in preparation for the public hearing on February 25. Following the hearing on the 25th, the Commissioners will consider whether to approve the plan for implementation.
At 11:00 a.m. the meeting moved to the County Shop for a public hearing on the One and Six-Year Road Plan. Three citizens were present for the hearing to ask questions and make suggestions. Road superintendent Tom Kuester emphasized that the ability to complete the proposed one-year projects will depend heavily on the availability of water. They are grateful that the Natural Resources District has exempted from irrigator’s quotas any water sold to the county for roadwork. Even so, irrigation wells are not always close enough to construction sites and water from rivers, streams and lakes is in very short supply.
Following the hearing, the Commissioners approved the One and Six-Year Road Plan as submitted. Copies of plan are available for public inspection at the Road Department and in the office of the County Clerk.
The Board will meet next on February 25, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. All meetings are open to the public and visitors are welcome.
