County Awards Gravel Contracts

The Kearney County Board of Supervisors opened gravel bids during their meeting on Tuesday, February 7 at the Kearney County Courthouse.
Mid-Nebraska Aggregates and Ed Broadfoot and Sons both submitted bids. The Mid-Nebraska bid was $4.69 per cubic yard. Broadfoot’s bid charged $4.55 per cubic yard with company loader, and $4.20 with the county loader. The board approved both bids with a unanimous vote.
Prior to the opening of the bids, the board heard a quarterly update from Christina McIntire of CASA.
In 2011, Kearney County CASA included 12 active volunteers who accumulated 609.5 advocacy hours, 30 pre-service training hours per volunteer and 12,777 miles logged.
The district under Kearney County CASA served 24 children including six new children assigned in 2011. They also saw seven children’s cases closed in the year.
Each volunteer was assigned to only one child or family at a time to allow them to provide undivided attention.
McIntire also presented the board with a quote for software CASA was requesting. National CASA no longer supports the ETO (efforts to outcome) software they once proposed for efficient data collection.
After one year, it was concluded the program was too time intensive and not user friendly.
