County Supervisors Reconvene in Person for Regular Meeting

CUSTER COUNTY–The Custer County Board of Supervisors met on Tuesday morning following weeks of teleconference meetings. County Clerk Constance Gracey said COVID-19 guidelines were followed and she added that it was nice to call names in person!

Substitution of Securities were approved as part of Resolution #11-2020 with First National Bank in Sargent and Resolution #12-2020 with Bruning Bank in Broken Bow.

Following a December meeting, the board heard from PiperJaffray representative Brad Slaughter to discuss the Judicial Center Bond Review. The supervisors voted to go ahead and pay out the last four years in order to reduce the principal and interest.

Gracey told KCNI/KBBN that the board also voted to extend the Disaster Township Loans as part of Resolution #14-2020. The extension is for another year as some townships have received money from FEMA while others have not.

Tourism grant applications were reviewed by the county board but no decisions were made. Gracey said the tourism grant application process has been changed for auditing purposes and the tourism advisory board will move forward with the applications.

A motion was also made for County Attorney Steve Bowers to move forward with applying for Criminal Justice Association Grants for COVID-19 relief.

The next meeting for the County Supervisors will be held on Tuesday, June 9.
