January 23, 2017 Unofficial

The Board of Nemaha County Commissioners met in regular session on Monday, January 23, 2017 in the Commissioner’s Room of the Nemaha County Courthouse. The meeting was called to order by Chairman Tim Burdiek leading the flag salute. Present also were Commissioners Dennis Henry and Gary Scoby, Road and Bridge/Solid Waste Supervisor Dennis Ronnebaum and Office Manager Kathy Haverkamp, and County Clerk Mary Kay Schultejans recording the minutes.

Road and Bridge/Solid Waste Report:

Road and Bridge/Solid Waste Supervisor Dennis Ronnebaum advised the board that:
• the Wichman Road, west of St. Benedict, is not holding together in places. This road is a paved road that concrete was added to recently to keep it from breaking up. Dennis let Commissioners know that he has contacted the contractor that did the concrete work, and that he will warranty his work on this project.
• he bought a load of pipe last week for $12.25 a foot.
• he ordered a fairly large quantity of plastic pipe last week for county residents who have requested it.
• he had to block off Bridge L-2 in Capioma Township again last Friday due to the bridge settling quite a bit because of the recent wet weather in the area.
