Commissioners Proceedings Statement - Monday, August 13, 2018
By James Krotz

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

Deputy County Attorney Aaron Conn announced the impending departure of Jarrod Jaeger the attorney on contract with the county as public defender for felony cases.  Jaeger will be moving to eastern Nebraska at the end of September.   Conn suggested several options that the Board might consider in seeking a new contract defender.  The Board will invite Public Defender Michael Varn to meet with them on August 20 to discuss the options Conn presented.

The Board voted to authorize Chairman Paul to sign an agreement with the state regarding reimbursement to the county for the collection of child support payments. 

Sheriff Terry Robbins reported that software support for the existing E-911 dispatch map is to be discontinued.  He presented a proposal for the new GeoComm Dispatch Map that includes installation, training, management and three years of support for $15,589.  The Commissioners approved the proposal.

Sheriff Robbins also presented a software support renewal contract from GeoComm for one year of support for the GeoLynx Desktop system.  The Commissioners approved the proposal at a cost of $3,685.  Both contracts will be paid for with revenues from the E-911 fund.  Fees paid by wireless and landline users in the county support that fund.

Tori Wild of Wild's Bar and Grill of Chadron appeared to request approval for a Special Designated License to sell liquor at a wedding reception to be held at Galyen's Barns on September 9.  The State Liquor Commission grants the Special Designated License but the Commissioners must offer a recommendation on the application.  After some discussion the Commissioners voted to approve the application.

Road Superintendent Tom Kuester presented the Road Department annual equipment inventory, which was signed by the Commissioners.  

The Board discussed with Kuester the next steps in the procedure for the condemnation and purchase of 3.99 acres of land in Lakeside.  The Nebraska Board of Education Lands and Funds owns the land, which is the site of the county's southern road department shop.  Sheridan County has leased the land from the state for many years.  The Board of Lands suggested the condemnation/purchase process, which may sound adversarial but is, in fact, a cooperative venture.

Budget Consultant Harold "Pete" Petersen met with the Commissioners, Elected Officials and Department Heads to review the first draft of the 2018-19 Budget.  The group reviewed projected revenues and office/department requests and discovered no significant difficulties on either side of the budget.  Petersen will have the second draft of the budget available for consideration at the next meeting.

The next meeting of the Commissioners is scheduled for Monday, August 20.
