County approves equipment purchase, begins work on pothole repair


At Monday’s meeting of the county commissioners, highway superintendent Tom Noel presented two quotes the county received for an air compressor. The county approved a bid from NMC Equipment Rental in Gering for around $11,800.

The other bid came in at around $14,000. This is a 2010 machine that was formerly used for rentals.

This will replace the county’s current compressor which is more than 50 years old.

“It’s wore out and we can’t get parts for it anymore,” Noel said.

This week the county highway department is working to fix potholes in the county.

“There’s potholes all over, for some reason we’ve got a lot of them this year,” Noel said.

The county is also laboring this week to repair some wash-outs near Potter from water flowing out of Kimball and Banner Counties during last month’s flooding.
