January 3, 2013
Present were Chairman James Krotz and Commissioners Jack Andersen and Dan Kling and Deputy County Clerk Gerri Ann Landreth.
As required by law the Board reorganized for the coming year as follows:
Determined that notice of Board meetings will ordinarily be published in the newspaper of record but that it shall be considered sufficient public notice to post the date and time of the meeting in the Rushville Post Office, Security First Bank and the Courthouse lobby. (The purpose of this provision is to enable the Board to convene in those unusual circumstances when newspaper publication deadlines would otherwise be prohibitive.)
On January 14 the Board will consider setting the regular dates for 2013 meetings.
The agenda for meetings of the County Board is kept continually current and is readily available for public inspection in the office of the County Clerk during normal business hours. Except for items of an emergency nature, the agenda shall not be altered later than twenty-four hours before the scheduled commencement of the meeting.
Dan Kling was elected Chairman and James Krotz was elected Vice-Chairman for 2013.
The Commissioners were apointed to represent the County on the following boards:
Andersen – Panhandle Mental Health, Region 1 Office of Human Development, Sheridan County Tourism Board.
Kling – Solid Waste Agency of Northwest Nebraska, Aging Office of Western Nebraska, Panhandle Public Health, Panhandle Area Development District.
