BROKEN BOW–The Custer County Board of Supervisors has re-committed to the Nebraska Intergovernmental Risk Management Association (NIRMA), which currently serves 103 Nebraska counties and public agencies.

County Clerk Constance Gracey told KCNI/KBBN that the approval of Resolution #63-2020 during the October 27 meeting commits Custer County to NIRMA for all county insurance needs from 2021 to 2024.

Also on Tuesday, the board appointed Barry Fox and Don Olson to represent and cast ballots at the Nebraska Association of County Officials conference, currently scheduled to take place in Kearney this December.

The appraisal contract for commercial properties in Broken Bow was tabled on Tuesday to allow for more details to be explained. (Click here for the September 29 story.)

No decisions were made regarding county employee COVID-19 sick pay/guidelines and a survey will go out  regarding a “cash in lieu” plan for employees and their spouses/families.

Gracey told KCNI/KBBN the board authorized Barry Fox to be able to sign letters of request for indirect costs involved with a Health and Human Services reimbursement. This followed the approval of the certification of a cost allocation plan for fiscal year ending June 30, 2019–which includes a report of indirect child support costs within the county.

Also on Tuesday morning, the board approved a motor vehicle exemption application for Homeward Trail Bible Camp and a bid was awarded to Gateway Motors for a 2021 pickup for the Custer County Sheriff’s Office. The quarterly jail visit was not completed.
