Saunders County Board of Supervisors

WAHOO – The Saunders County Board of Supervisors received gravel bids at its July 10 meeting.

Gravel bids for county road surfacing will cover July 1 through June 30, 2013.

Three bids were submitted. The bids were not reviewed during the meeting.

Public Works Director Steve Mika plans to review the bids in his office before presenting a recommendation to the board at the July 17 meeting.

Supervisors also addressed an opening on the Saunders County Veterans Service Committee.

Larry Johnson of Malmo was reappointed to the position for a five-year term. His previous term expired on June 30. Members of the Valparaiso VFW Post, and American Legion Posts in Wahoo, Ceresco, Valparaiso and Morse Bluff recommended Johnson for reappointment, according to Saunders County Board of Supervisors Chairwoman Doris Karloff.

Supervisors also approved the renewal of an agreement with Region V Systems. The agreement for Emergency Protective Custody was signed for July 1 through June 30, 2013. Saunders County Clerk Patti Lindgren said the agreement started approximately five years ago and has brought down the cost of handling adults with acute mental illnesses.

The Saunders County Board of Supervisors announced supervisors have begun inventories of county offices.

Supervisors Ed Rastovski and Darren Martin announced that inventory started with the register of deeds office. The pair opted for a complete inventory check instead of a spot check given the small number of items in the office.

Rastovski said all items on the inventory list were accounted for and no items were found that had been excluded from the inventory list.

“That office is run very frugally,” Rastovski said.
