Go ahead • Holt County road superintendent Gary Connot explains a drainage problem on 496 Avenue, east of O'Neill, during Thursday's supervisor meeting in O'Neill.

Holt County Supervisors approved fixing a drainage issue on the corner of 496 Avenue and 871 road, approximately two miles east of O'Neill. Whether Grattan Township will assist with costs for the upgrade wasn't immediately clear during the board's Oct. 15 meeting at the Holt County Courthouse meeting room.
