By James Krotz
ja

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

Sherry Retzlaff reported that the Nebraska Crime Commission grant request of  $18,524 for 2018-19 has been approved.  The funds will be used to support the School Resource Officer program in the Gordon/Rushville school system.

The Commissioners voted to waive the bidding requirements of the County Purchasing Act in order to proceed immediately with emergency repairs to the exercise yard at the county jail.  The abandoned well, which caused the sinkhole, may be the original, hand-dug well for the courthouse.  A concrete cap must be poured over the well, the depression backfilled and the yard must be repaved.  The Commissioners approved an estimate from Kustom Rock Crushing of Gordon for $14,300. 

Road Superintendent Tom Kuester reported that about 20 yards of a road in the Pleasant Point area is still submerged under 6 inches of water.

Ellsworth resident Bandon Flores appeared before the Commissioners to voice his concern about a neighbor closing off an access road.  Kuester will contact the neighbor regarding the prohibition against obstructing a public road.

The next meeting of the Commissioners is scheduled for Monday, June 25.
