(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.
Meeting as the Board of Equalization (BOE), the commissioners approved assessor Trudy Winter’s request to add to the tax rolls five houses sold by the Gordon Housing Authority, four to private parties and one to the city of Gordon.
The BOE approved the assessor’s request to remove from the 2013 tax rolls a mobile home owned by Jerry Halverson that had been removed from the county prior to January 1st.
The commissioners tabled consideration of the Nebraska Department of Roads “Federal Funds Purchase Program – Supplemental Agreement” until their next meeting to give road superintendent Tom Kuester additional time to review the documents.
Kuester also informed the board that he is purchasing a new two-section, 12-foot rotary mower for roadside mowing.
The commissioners authorized chair Dan Kling to sign the closing statements for the refinancing of certain bonds for the Solid Waste Authority of Northwest Nebraska (SWANN). On February 25th, the board approved the re-financing of these bonds at a rate of approximately 2.04%, less than half the current rate.
Commissioner Jack Andersen reported that the enabling legislation for the Sheridan County portion of the Cowboy Trail seems likely to advance in the state legislature.
