County Board Hires Surveyor, Previews New Road Projects

The Kearney County Board of Supervisors met on Tuesday, January 20th to discuss road matters, the county surveyor and the Kearney County Clean-up.
Due to the fact that Kearney County didn’t elect a county surveyor, the county contracts with someone for the service. County Attorney Melodie Bellamy explained to the Board of Supervisors that an election could only occur if a surveyor lived in Kearney County and would be willing to run. To her knowledge, no surveyor met that criteria so the board would have to hire someone for the services.
The board renewed a contract with Chad Dixon, head surveyor for  Miller and Associates out of Kearney, to provide county surveying services for the next four years. The contract with Dixon is to be paid for services rendered up to a maximum of $6,000 a year.
Kearney County Highway Superintendent Randy Smith presented information to the board regarding the upcoming one and six-year road plan public hearing on February 17. Smith discussed some new projects under consideration for the one and six-year plans
