NACO official visits Holt County

 

October 24, 2019

Jon Cannon of Lincoln, deputy director of the Nebraska Association of County Officials, was a guest at the Oct. 15 meeting of the Holt County supervisors at the courthouse in O'Neill.

Cannon is currently on a quest to visit each of the state's 93 counties.

The county leaders approved a one-year lease of a skid loader from NMC CAT in Norfolk, at a cost of $7,800, for use by the weed department. CAT was contacted with a request for the lease option by Bill Teilke, chairman, during the Sept. 30 meeting, when the supervisors heard a proposal for a possible $52,000 lease/purchase of a machine from Bill Babutski, weed superintendent.

The supervisors, along with County Clerk Cathy Pavel and Road Superintendent Gary Connot entered closed session for about one-half hour to discuss "pending litigation." The session also included, through phone conference, Christopher Schmitz, an attorney with the Baylor, Evnen law firm. Tielke said no action was taken while the meeting was closed to the public.

While convened as a board of equalization, the supervisors approved the 2019-2020 levies of all entities included in Holt County tax collections. Tax roll corrections submitted by Tim Wallinger, county assessor, were approved as well.
