Proceedings Statement  of the April 14, 2014 Commissioners meeting.

Present were Chairman Dan Kling, Commissioners Jack Andersen and James Krotz and County Clerk Sindy Coburn.

At the request of County Assessor Trudy Winter the Commissioners discussed her proposed challenge to a recommendation by the State Property Tax Administrator that the valuation of irrigated farmland in the county be increased by 25%. The proposed increase is based in part on the value of irrigated land in nearby counties where ground water has not been fully appropriated. The Commissioners expressed their moral support for Winter as she challenges this increase.

Acting as the Board of Equalization the Commissioners convened a public hearing on an application for tax exemption on a 1997 Ford pickup owned by Lakota Hope Ministries. Bruce BonFleur of Lakota Hope and County Treasurer Peg Sones spoke briefly to the matter. Following the hearing the Commissioners approved the tax exemption.

County Road Superintendent Tom Kuester presented three applications for agricultural approaches to the County right-of-way: Jerry Botorff 730 Road; Terrance Terrell 440 Road; Ralph Beutler 420 Lane. Any new approach or any change to an existing approach to the county right-of-way must be approved by the Board through application to the Road Department. All three of the applications were approved.

Mr. Chuck Lemp of Long Pine, NE approached the Board with a tentative proposal regarding the recycling of the ballast (gravel) from the railroad right of way between Gordon and Rushville. Lemp wants to bid on the Cowboy Trail project to be let by NE Game and Parks on May 1. That project involves the removal of the ballast and replacing it with crushed limestone to make a pedestrian/cyclist friendly surface. To make that bid feasible he needs to have a market for the 30,000 tons of reclaimed gravel. Lemp proposes to clean and crush (as needed) the very hard granite rock and sell it to the county at $12/ton. The Commissioners questioned Lemp closely about the removal of metal (old spikes and plates) and the proper sizing of the material (3/4 inch) and received assurances that he will have the equipment necessary to make the material "road ready". At $12/ton this material is a good value since the softer red rock from Buffalo Gap, SD now cost the county $17.80/ton delivered. Kuester informed the Board that Cherry County has had good success with such material reclaimed from the Cowboy trail in that area. The Commissioners assured Lemp that they were very interested in purchasing the material from him if he were to be the successful bidder.

With Sheriff Terry Robbins, the Commissioners conducted their quarterly inspection of the county jail.

The next scheduled meeting of the Commissioners is Monday, April 21 at 9:00 A.M.
