Patty Faulk met with the Commissioners and Road Superintendent Tom Kuester to discuss the possibility of rebuilding approximately 4400 feet of a county road that serves only one residence. The Commissioners agreed to work with Ms Faulk on a cost-share basis to rebuild the road with the understanding that county crews must give priority to more heavily traveled roads.
Commissioner Kling reported that he had received a call from the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission concerning the ballast (crushed rock) from the section of the railroad right of way between Rushville and Hay Springs. Game and Parks wanted to know if the County would be interested in purchasing the material if bids for a reclamation contract were let. Chuck Lemp, contractor for the Gordon – Rushville section of the project indicated that he would probably submit a bid if the project was approved. The Commissioners agreed that they would be interested in the material if acceptable terms were set.
