Supervisors Approve Employee Gift Policy

Despite less than ideal weather conditions, the Kearney County Board of Supervisors braved the roads in order to hold their regular meeting on November 26. The began the meeting with a public hearing for a resolution for the employee gift policy.

The amended policy sets a limit for employee recognition plaques and gifts not to exceed $150 with no additional funding from outside sources allowed. No gift certificates or cash is permitted for employee gifts. Employee recognition dinners are not to exceed $50 per plate and only employee meals are to be paid by the County. After exiting the public hearing, the board adopted the resolution.

The board considered a state audit contract for June 2020. After some discussion they determined having a state audit to follow up on the one conducted for 2019 would help ensure all the concerns that were brought to light have been addressed. The audit contract was approved.
