County Supervisors Appoint Lupkes New Kearney County Emergency Manager

Retiring Kearney County Supervisor William Pittner was honored for his service during the December 15 regular meeting of the Kearney County Board of Supervisors. Pittner served on the board for twelve years.

The City of Minden contacted the County about relocating memorial benches previously located in front of businesses on the west side of the square to the courthouse lawn. While not against having the benches on the lawn, the board discussed the need for cement pads to set the benches on and who would be responsible for that cost. They also determined any benches that weren’t painted black would be better placed near one of the schools or in the City parks. More information will be gathered before the board moves forward with a decision.
