The Kearney County Board of Supervisors held its first of two June meetings on June 7 at the Kearney County Courthouse.
The first agenda item the supervisors discussed was with Barb King of the Minden Senior Center and Meredith Collins of Community-Action Partnership of Minden Nebraska dealing with a funding increase.
Currently the county budgets $5,000 for the center but with cuts coming from the federal level the pair were here in advance of next year’s budget process to discuss the need for more assistance.

“This will be kind of hard to do for us,” said King. “We want to see if we can rent the center out more and help with the expenses.”
