Lincoln County Commissioners discuss how to best use funds from the HVAC lawsuit

NORTH PATTE, Neb. (Nebraska) — During their meeting Monday morning, Lincoln County commissioners discussed how to best use funds the county recently received following a lengthy lawsuit related to the county courthouse’s HVAC system.

“Finally, after seven years of discussions, we have agreed with everyone involved in that initial project,” said Vice President Kent Weems. “Now that all those resolutions and lawsuits have been settled, it’s time to move forward. We will look into that with the Buildings and Lands Committee and investigate some mitigation options on that system to make it more efficient.”

Also, during their Monday morning meeting, the commissioners discussed how best to work with the Noxious Weed Department, which Weems is very familiar with after serving the department for several years in the early 1990s.

“Today’s discussion was about how to give these people some freedom,” Weems said. “They are all sane thinkers and some of them served several years on that board. So, they are very responsible people in the community who understand this process. Basically, we’re asking the county attorney to budget-wise set a spending limit to allow the weed board to advise the superintendent.

The board also scheduled a public hearing on Lincoln County’s one- and six-year road plans for March 6.

The bout was live streamed on the Lincoln County Nebraska YouTube page, a link is provided below:
