A cash in lieu plan was approved via Resolution #67-2020 allowing for county employees over the age of 65 to receive cash in lieu alternative  if they choose to go on their own Medicare plan rather than have the county pay their insurance premium.

Resolutions for Substitutions of Securities for First National Bank and Nebraska State Bank were both approved.
