CAIRO–Todd Nitsch of Boelus has been selected by the Lower Loup Natural Resources District Board of Directors to fill its Subdistrict 3 vacancy. Nitsch, an employee of Aurora Co-op, will represent the subdistrict which is comprised of parts of Custer, Sherman, Howard, and Buffalo Counties.
Nitsch was one of two candidates who applied for the vacancy. Nitsch won appointment, by a vote of the Board, over John Kriha of Ravenna. Both men made presentations to the Board highlighting their backgrounds and qualifications. The vote took place at the LLNRD’s September 26 meeting.
The NRD Board vacancy was created by the resignation of Jim Nelson, who retired after 47 years as a director. Nitsch is a native Nebraskan and has a background in agronomy and management. He is also a member of the Boelus Rural Fire Board and Howard County Foundation Board.
The Subdistrict 3 seat will be up for election again in 2020.
