Proceedings Statement of the August 25, 2014 Commissioners meeting.
By James E. Krotz
Present were Chairman Dan Kling, Commissioners Jack Andersen and James Krotz and County Clerk Sindy Coburn.
Acting as the Board of Equalization (BOE) the Commissioners conducted a hearing on the denial of a homestead exemption for James and Cornelia Taff. Deputy Assessor Amanda Salisbury informed the BOE that no action could be taken because the deadline for changes to the 2014 Tax List had passed. The Taffs will be invited to review their property value with the Assessor at their earliest convenience.
The BOE approved a correction sheet accelerating the taxes on a mobile home owned by Jerry Halverson that has been moved from the county.
The Commissioners discussed briefly how best to proceed with the sale of the old Sheridan County Transportation Van. The Van must be sold at auction when a suitable event can be found.
Dean Carpenter of Chadron appeared before the Commissioners to request the repair/refurbishing of historical makers for Sheridan Gates and the Spotted Tail Agency.
The various Elected Officials and Department Heads met with the Commissioners and Budget Consultant Pete Petersen to review departmental requests. The discussion will continue on Tuesday, September 2.
The Board approved a motion to increase the budget limit for the coming year by 1%, from 2.5 to 3.5%. This motion has no effect on the amount to be collected or spent in the coming year – it simply increases the budget authority available to the county.
The Board voted to grant tax authority to the Sheridan County Agricultural Society in the amount of $45,000 and the Sheridan County Historical Society in the amount of $6530. Tax authority to all other political subdivisions was denied.
The next meeting of the Board of Commissioners will convene at 9:00 on Tuesday, September 2.
