Commissioners Proceedings Statement - Monday, February 12, 2018
By James Krotz
ja

Present were Chairman Loren Paul, Commissioners Jack Andersen and James Krotz and County Clerk Sindy Coburn, Assessor Tina Skinner and Treasurer Peg Sones.

Acting as the Board of Equalization (BOE) the Commissioners considered an Application for Permissive Exemption presented by Assessor Skinner for the Hay Springs Golf Club.  The golf course is used by the Hay Springs High School golf team and so may be considered for an exemption for educational purposes.  The BOE approved the application for submission to the state for review and possible approval.

The BOE approved a Correction Sheet submitted by Assessor Skinner to enter onto the tax roll the personal property of the Panhandle Rural Electric Membership Association (PREMA) for tax year 2017.

Road Superintendent Tom Kuester requested that the Commissioners approve a resolution to correct the assessment of mowing erroneously charged to Scott Vejraska.  The Board approved the resolution.

Kuester presented a request for two agricultural approaches to the county right-of-way by Rudy Stanko.  The approaches to 205th Lane, approximately Ĺ south of Hwy. 20, will facilitate access for the feeding of cattle.  After some discussion regarding drainage and communications cables the Commissioners approved the application.

Jeannette Graber, Director of Generations in Volunteer Efforts (GIVE) presented her report for calendar year 2017.   The GIVE program involved 374 volunteers last year, a slight increase over 2016.  Those volunteers provided 114,027 hours of service to the County in 2017.  Among other things GIVE coordinates volunteers for the county museums, mobile food pantry, County Fair, tourism, pre-schools and Head Start. 

4-H Assistant Melissa Mracek reported on recent Extension Service activities with special attention to the robotics program at Hay Springs and Gordon/Rushville schools.

The Commissioners voted to approve a resolution correcting the wording of a 1-16-18 resolution authorizing the Treasurer to transfer funds from the Inheritance to the General Fund.

The Commissioners approved two applications for the sub-division of parcels of less than 10 acres each requested by Barbara Young.

At 11:00 a.m. the Board moved from the Commissionerís chambers to the Road Department shop in the Courthouse Annex for the One and Six-Year Road Hearing.  Two members of the public were present.  Road Superintendent Kuester reported that all the one-year projects on the 2017 Plan had been completed.  He then presented the 2018 Plan, which includes 13 projects focusing on areas where snow and drainage have been particularly problematic.  The projects will likely use up the remaining supply of rock from the railroad right-of-way.  Kuester reported that three of the most heavily traveled roads in the County system are 450th Lane with 149 vehicles per day, 380th Lane with 80 vehicles per day and 590th Road with 72 vehicles per day.  Those counts represent only one-day surveys and actual traffic loads may be higher.

After some discussion the Commissioners voted to approve the One and Six-Year Plan as submitted.   The Plan is available for public inspection in the Road Department Office and the Office of the County Clerk.

The next meeting of the Commissioners is scheduled for Tuesday, February 20.

Commissioners Proceedings Statement - Tuesday, January 23, 2018
By James Krotz

Present were Chairman Loren Paul, Commissioners Jack Andersen and James Krotz and County Clerk Sindy Coburn.

Road Superintendent Tom Kuester presented a resolution to set the hearing date for the current year and six-year road improvement plan for Monday, February 12.  The hearing will be held at 11:00 a.m. in the shop at the County Annex at 111 North Main in Rushville.  The Commissioners approved the resolution.
    Kuester presented the Road Department 2017 summary of costs for road projects, signage, blading, snow removal, gravel, pit-run, patching and water.   The report is available for public review in the office of the Road Superintendent.

Rudy Stanko appeared to reassert his complaints regarding the cost of operating the office of the County Attorney.

Weed Superintendent Kristi Paul and the members of the Prairie Dog Advisory Council met with the Board to review the enabling resolution for the management plan and a draft proposed "friendly" letter to landowners with spreading prairie dog colonies.  The "friendly" letter will advise the landowner that the county has received an inquiry about the process to file a complaint against them, and invite them to consider participation in the USDA Wildlife Services control program.  The cost of the USDA program is $8 to $10 per acre.  The cost of "force control" is $50 per acre.  

The control project southeast of Hay Springs, now in its second year, has resulted in significant improvement to the quality of the range.

The Commissioners re-appointed Lloyd Kearns and Jerry Meyring to three-year terms on the Advisory Council.  Continuing members are Wayne Dreyer, Jean Parker and Rick Schneider. Kristi Paul serves as Superintendent of the Prairie Dog Control program.

The next meeting of the Commissioners is scheduled for Monday, February 12.
