(Neb.)-Sheridan County Commissioner Meeting Happenings
(SHERIDAN COUNTY)-Present at the Sheridan County commissioners’ meeting on Monday morning were chair Dan Kling, commissioners Jack Andersen and James Krotz, and county clerk Sindy Coburn.
The scheduled meeting of the Board of Equalization adjourned without action due to the absence of the county assessor.
Clerk of the district court Eloise Kampbell presented a request from Rudy Stanko to use the district courtroom for an evening meeting. The commissioners voted to deny the request.
At 9:30 a.m., the commissioners opened bids for a semi-truck tractor for the county road department. Three bids were received: from Sahling Kenworth, a bid of $100,500 for a Kenworth T-800; from Nebraska Peterbilt, a bid of $98,797 for a Peterbilt 386; from Nebraska Truck & Equipment, a bid of $94,999.04 for a Mack CXU613. Consideration of the bids was tabled until March 18th so that road superintendent Tom Kuester will have time to compare the bid details.
Kuester presented the board with a request for temporary access to the county right-of-way on 430 Lane just north of Hwy 20. The access was requested by Werner Construction for a temporary asphalt plant for a paving project south of Hay Springs and possibly for a paving project between Rushville and Gordon. The commissioners approved the request.
Mark Yardley met with the commissioners and Kuester to discuss the county’s policy regarding the transfer of employees among the various shops. The commissioners stated that it was the responsibility of the road superintendent to decide when such transfers were necessary.
The commissioners received and discussed a proposed inter-local agreement on law enforcement approved by the Gordon City Council. The proposal updates a long-standing agreement regarding the authority of city police to operate outside the city limits with the approval of the sheriff. The commissioners tabled the matter pending the review and recommendation of Sheriff Terry Robbins.
Building superintendent Dwaine Sones reported that some adjustments to the chair-lift in the new courthouse entryway are still needed before final payment can be approved.
As usual when the unicameral is in session, the commissioners discussed pending legislation.
The board will meet next on Monday, March 18th at 9:00 a.m. All meetings are open to the public, and visitors are welcome.
