Public Works Administrator Mike Craig & Public Works Coordinating Supervisor Roy Yungeberg feel that the County bridge crew can construct the Franklin Township bridge and the Herkimer Township bridge with the possibility of repair only being needed on the Herkimer Township bridge.

The Board placed a phone call to Erich Tiemann, Gage County, Nebraska chairman of supervisors to discuss the shared bridge in Oketo Township on Stateline Rd. The Beatrice Board of Supervisors had previously not had any interest in cost sharing the construction of a new structure due to the fact that they were told the road was closed. The road is not closed and the gate that was previously up has been removed. There are several landowners affected by this structure. The current bridge is unable to handle heavy equipment including but not limited to grain trucks, concrete trucks for construction of a residence, etc. Mr. Tiemann did inform the Board that there is a permanent easement on file encompassing these properties. Mr. Tiemann will take this new information to the Gage County Board of Supervisors for further discussion and will report back to Public Works Administrator Mike Craig.
