August 28, 2015

TEKAMAH NE 68061

The Burt County Board of Supervisors met in regular session on Friday, August 28, 2015 in the Boardroom of the Burt County Courthouse in Tekamah, Nebraska, pursuant to adjournment of their last meeting. Notice of the meeting was given in advance thereof by Publication in the Plaindealer, upon a 1st floor bulletin board within the courthouse and on the County’s Website. A copy of the proof of publication is on file in the office of the County Clerk. The following members were present: Cliff Morrow, Greg Brummond, Matt Connealy, Perry Rogers, Ted Connealy and Gerald Newill. Absent – David Schold.

The meeting opened at 9:00 A.M. upon motion by Newill, seconded by Brummond, with roll call vote as follows: Ayes – Morrow, Brummond, M.Connealy, Rogers, T.Connealy and Newill. Nays-none. Absent- Schold. Chairman Morrow informed the public that the Nebraska Open Meeting Act was posted on the wall.

Upon motion by M.Connealy, seconded by Rogers, the agenda was approved, with roll call vote as follows: Ayes –Morrow, Brummond, M.Connealy, Rogers, T.Connealy and Newill. Nays-none. Absent- Schold.

Mark Blackford visited with the Board about County Road 21. The County has plans to re-do the County Road, in the process making it narrower. This is concerning to Blackford because Craig Cattle uses this County Road for staging during cattle loading and during harvest. He is aware that he needs to build an access road for a staging area, but wanted to discuss with the Board the timeline to avoid problems during harvest this season. An agreement was discussed, when the County cleans out road ditches on Co.Rd. 21 during this project, they will allocate this dirt to Blackford. The County will dump the dirt, but Blackford will do the finish work for this access area. The agreement also entailed waiting until after harvest for completion of the last quarter mile of this project in order to allow the use of the County Road until the access area can be built by Blackford.

The following claims for August in the amount of $1,235,207.91 including $109,896.05 for payroll, were read, audited, warrant drawn and checks generated on the respective funds on motion by M.Connealy, seconded by T.Connealy, with roll call vote as follows: Ayes – Morrow, Brummond, M.Connealy, Rogers, T.Connealy and Newill. Nays – none. Absent- Schold. $500,000.00 of this total reflects a transfer from the General Fund to the Road Fund.

At 10:05 A.M. Chairman Morrow opened a public hearing regarding land owners Patrick, Larry and Doug Kriete spreading sludge from Omaha. Doug Kriete explained that they plan to stockpile the sludge when it becomes available and then will apply it next year. He also said that he has spoken to all of the neighbors of the property. Morrow voiced his concern over the trucks being aware of not tearing up our County Roads. Gordon Anderson from City of Omaha Public Works assured the Board that they’ll only haul it in on dry roads and that they watch over the application process. The Chairman declared the public hearing closed at 10:12 A.M., and the Board went back into regular session.

Patty Plugge from Burt County Economic Development Corporation came before the Board to get confirmation from the Board that the County will increase their financial commitment to $36,000.00 for the fiscal year 16-17. She has had communication with Cities and Villages whom are currently not invested with BCEDC and hopes to gain their investments after she explains that she can lower their commitments due to the County increasing theirs. The County feels that the organization has a lot to offer it’s communities, and is happy to be able to help the Cities with this investment.

Fred Mytty of Mytty PC Consulting presented the Board with options for the 2015- 2016 county budget. Discussion followed regarding having a cash reserve versus the importance of alleviating tax burdens for the people of Burt County. M.Connealy expressed that tax asking being lowered for our residents is more important than reserves/catastrophic planning at this point in time. It was discussed and decided upon to use $542,000.00 from the Inheritance Tax Fund in an effort to lower taxes. Mytty will finalize the Budget accordingly. The date for the final hearing of the budget was set for September 8, 2015, during the next regular board meeting.
