The Kearney County Board of Supervisors took one more step towards purchasing the former F.S.A. building in Minden to relieve space issues caused by expanding probation services at the county level. At the December 3 meeting, the board voted to add and exceed a line item for land purchase in the Inheritance Fund.
The board discussed the best timing for taking ownership of the building and removing it from the tax roles. Kearney County Attorney Melodie Bellamy told the board that the purchase agreement had a closing date in mid-February but that it could be moved up. Board member Roy John Nelson suggested that the county should wait to take possession until after the first of the year. He said that Probation Officer Tina Luz said that the new probation staff person in Kearney County won’t need office space until after the first of the year.
