(Neb.)-Sheridan County Commissioner Meeting Happenings
(SHERIDAN COUNTY)-Present at the Sheridan County commissioner’s meeting were chair Dan Kling, commissioners Jack Andersen and James Krotz, and county clerk Sindy Coburn.
Bill Thornton of Costa Mesa, Calif., and Gerald Hardin and Dean Jamison of Sheridan County appeared before the commissioners to renew the request originally submitted by Rudy Stanko for the use of the district courtroom for what they call a “People’s Grand Jury.” Thornton presented to the board certain documents he had prepared concerning the Magna Carta and common law. The commissioners stated that they would gladly make the courtroom available to a Grand Jury convened in accordance with the procedures set forth by the laws of the State of Nebraska. They presented Thornton with a copy of Nebraska Statute 29-1401.02, which sets forth the process for convening a Grand Jury by petition. Thornton professed not to have been aware of the process set forth in the statutes and said he could see no reason why they couldn’t follow the process.
Also at the meeting, road superintendent Tom Kuester reported on snow removal efforts following the recent winter storm. He says the newer, more powerful motor-graders are performing much better than the older units they replaced. The sealing of cracks in county blacktop roads will now be delayed until next winter as there are now too few cold weather days remaining to complete the job, and it is important not to seal in the recently received moisture.
The board will meet next on Monday, April 22nd, at 9:00 a.m. The minutes of this and all commissioners’ meetings are available to the public at the office of the Sheridan County Clerk or online at sheridancountynebraska.com.
