The Kearney County Board of Supervisors met on March 19 and had a full agenda of items to work through for their final meeting of the month.
The first item on the agenda was a visit from Christina McIntire and Amy Latter with CASA for an update on the program and a 2013-14 budget request from Kearney County for July.
McIntire had a handout for the board to look at which reviewed all about CASA and what it does. The total number of children served in Kearney County was 26 ranging in age from 0-19 years old. There are 13 active volunteers in the county with 428 hours and 8,727 miles driven for the cause. There are five active board members and seven resource committee members.
Kearney County and Buffalo County have merged together and with that goes some added expenses for CASA. Latter and McIntire presented a budget request more than last year due to insurance costs, rent, administrative fees, phone and etc. in the amount of $9,000 which was an increase over the $6,100 from the previous years total.
The board unanimously approved the budget request so McIntire and the CASA board work on their budget.
