Commissioners Minutes April 20, 2015

The Sheridan County Board of Commissioners met in regular session at 9 A.M. in the Commissioners Office, Courthouse. All members present. Kling stated that the meeting would be conducted in accordance with the provisions of the Nebraska Open Meeting Act a copy of which is available on the guest desk. Andersen made a motion to accept the agenda. Krotz seconded the motion. All voted aye. Andersen made a motion to approve the minutes of 4-13-2015. Krotz seconded the motion. With a roll call vote all voted aye. 

The board signed claim checks and audited and approved salary claims.

Chuck Lemp of Atarah Holdings and Road Superintendent Tom Kuester met with the board to discuss road material from the Cowboy Trail project. The board agreed that mixing some fines from the roadbed to the crushed ballast would result in a material that binds together when applied. This will not alter the amount that the county pays for the material.

Kuester present the board with application for an approach from Ben Schaer. Andersen made a motion to approve the approach to the county right-of-way to 630 Road for Ben Schaer. Krotz seconded the motion. With a roll call vote all voted aye.

The board discussed with Kuester a request from Kristen Scott for improvements to a section of 340 Lane. The board reaffirmed their decision on November 2014 that since this road serves only the Scott home site that the county would provide 20 loads of pit-run, to be hauled by the Scotts. The county agreed to spread the material on a “time-permitting” basis. This offer is consistent with agreements made with other residents in similar situations. 

Commissioner Krotz reported an inquiry from a county resident concerning the proper disposal of electronic equipment. Chairman Kling initiated a teleconference with Solid Waste Agency of Northwest Nebraska (SWANN) and was informed that the “standard household amounts” of electronic equipment can simply go in the dumpsters. Those with larger amounts (over 220 pounds) should contract with SWANN.
