County approves budget measures


The Cheyenne County Board of Commissioners met on Monday morning. The Board approved the budget for 2013-2014 as well as three other items from the public hearing.

For the two budget years (2012-2013 and 2013-2014), the two cemeteries will receive $3,300 each and all three historical societies will be given $1,000.

The Jail Medical Agreement between Cheyenne County and the Sidney Regional Medical Center was smoothed over from the last meeting and will be effective starting October 1.

Payment of $20,000 per year for economic development will continue to be received by the city of Sidney. Also, $74,800 was awarded to Niehueser Construction for maintenance roadwork on County Road 20.

Finally, the Board appointed Mary Katos, Jim Ernest, Susan Narjes, Megan McGown and Beau Mathewson to the Nebraska Community Foundation Cheyenne County Fund Advisory Board. They will raise money for a new building at the Fairgrounds.
