Proceedings Statement of the April 20, 2015 Commissioners meeting.
By James E. Krotz
Present were Chairman Dan Kling, Commissioners Jack Andersen and James Krotz, County Clerk Sindy Coburn and Treasurer Peg Sones. Also present was reporter Mark Gaschler of the Sheridan County Journal Star.
The Commissioners audited and approved salary claims and signed checks.
Chuck Lemp of Atarah Holdings and Road Supt. Tom Kuester met with the Commissioners to discuss road material from the Cowboy Trail project. The Commissioners agreed that mixing some fines from the roadbed to the crushed ballast would result in a material that binds better when applied to roads. This agreed-upon change will not alter the amount the county pays for the material.
Kuester presented an application for an approach to the county right-of-way to 630 Road for Ben Schaer. The Commissioners approved the approach.
The Commissioners and Kuester discussed a request from Kristen Scott for improvements to a section of 340 Lane, an unimproved county road. The Commissioners reaffirmed their decision of November 2014 that since this road serves only the Scott home site 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 householders in similar circumstances.
Kuester reported that the potential buyer for the motorized packer is no longer interested. He suggested that the packer not be declared surplus property unless/until another buyer is found. The Board agreed.
Krotz reported an inquiry from a county resident concerning the proper disposal of electronic equipment. The Chairman initiated a teleconference with the offices of the Solid Waste Agency of Northwest Nebraska (SWANN) and discovered that "standard household amounts" of electronic equipment (televisions, computers, CFL bulbs) can simply go in the dumpster. Those with larger amounts (over 220 pounds) should contract SWANN.
The next scheduled meeting of the Commissioners will be held at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, May 11.
