(Neb.)-Sheridan County Courthouse Set For New Grass

By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 12/04/2012 07:34 AM

(Sheridan Co.)-The Sheridan County Commissioners met Monday at the regularly scheduled meeting. County Extension Educator Cindy Tusler made a presentation to the Board on the benefits of the new varieties of buffalo turf grass as an option for renewing the courthouse lawn. These new varieties require less water and mowing than bluegrass or fescues and stay greener in the very high temperatures of mid-summer. The trade off is that buffalo grass greens up later in the spring and turns brown earlier in the fall. The commissioners agreed that the County could provide an example of good water stewardship by replanting the courthouse lawn to buffalo grass and gave their approval to the project.
 
The Commissioners approved the closing of all courthouse offices all day on Christmas Eve, Monday Dec. 24 and all day on New Year’s Eve, Monday Dec. 31.
