Commissioners Proceedings Statement - Monday, July 24, 2017
By James Krotz

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

The Commissioners authorized the Chairman to sign sub-agreements between the County Attorney, the Clerk of the District Court and the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services for the Child Support Enforcement Program.

Road Superintendent Tom Kuester informed the Board that he has purchased a used sheep-foot packer for $4850.  The grading of some roads is being delayed until harvest is complete so that heavy truck traffic doesn't break down the base causing further damage to the surface.

Consultant Susan Lore reported on her activities in the Assessor's Office over the past month.  Ms. Lore has facilitated a number of informal valuation hearings thereby reducing the number of formal protest hearings required.

The Commissioners convened as the Board of Equalization at 11:15 and at 3:40 completed the review of valuation protests for the year.

The next meeting of the Commissioners is scheduled for Monday, August 14.
All meetings of the Board of Commissioners are held in compliance with Nebraska Open Meetings Act and the public is always welcome.
