(Neb.)-Sheridan County Commisioners Met Monday
(Rushville)-The Sheridan County Commissioners Met in Regular Session Monday Morning.
Walt Simmons met with the Commissioners to discuss his ideas regarding real estate tax and school funding reform and to ask that the Board sponsor legislation to affect those reforms.
Road Superintendent Tom Kuester reported that county crews are working hard to repair “blowouts” caused by heavy harvest traffic and are hauling rock chips in preparation for the armor coating of the Hay Springs and Gordon cemetery roads and 440th Road east of Hwy 87 – a total of approximately 6 miles at $22,000/mile.
The Board briefly discussed the upcoming meeting with Budget Consultant Pete Petersen scheduled for August 25. The several County Departments and Offices have submitted their requests for 2014-15 but until the Board has the final figures on the total valuation of taxable property no serious planning can begin.
The Board approved and signed a supplement to the Inter-local Agreement with the University Extension Service regarding the county’s responsibility for partial support of the 4 - H Assistant and the provision of office space and services. The supplement was requested by the Extension Service because of the interim status of the present administration. A new Sheridan County Extension Educator should be in place some time this fall.
