The Kearney County Board of Supervisors met on June 21 at the courthouse with all members present.
Neleigh Korth was appointed the new county attorney, and concurrently accepted Bryan McQuay’s resignation from the position, effective July 1. McQuay will be retained as the deputy county attorney and will work on Korth’s staff as she gets settled in.
The first appointment was Spencer Nelson from the United States Department of Agriculture.
He reported 176.5 hours of direct control work in the county, with expenditures of $11,395 and use of $4,195 in federal funds. He requested a budget of $7,198, the same number as last year, and it was approved.
There was some discussion of the budget guidelines for 2011-12, and it was finally decided by the board that there would be a 3% salary increase, and no increase in other areas for the year, as departments figure out their budgets.
Court appointed legal funds would continue to come out of the inheritance account.
