Supervisors Adopt Resolution To Prohibit Weapons In County Buildings

The Kearney County Board of Supervisors discussed the process that will be taken to fill a recent vacancy on the board during the August 3 regular meeting. An ad for the District #2 Supervisor position was advertised in the August 4 and 11 issues of The Minden Courier. District #2 includes Logan, Newark, and Blaine Townships. Applications for the position are due August 13.

Interviews will be conducted on August 16 by the County Attorney, Clerk, and Treasurer. The Personnel Committee will appoint a candidate from the applicants to serve the remainder of the four year term (2021-2025).

Bids for a concrete box culvert north of the mission in Axtell were opened. The County received bids from Wilkie Construction, Ramos Construction, and Midlands Contracting. Although the bid from Wilkie Construction was the lowest, the bid was dismissed because there was no acknowledgment of addendum. The next lowest bid from Midlands Contracting for $116,777.35 was accepted.
