Nemaha Co moves forward with road improvement project

Nemaha County Courthouse

(KMZA)---The Nemaha County Commission is moving forward with a road improvement project.

Following discussion, the commission voted last week to approve a bid from Hall Brothers, of Marysville, to overlay a five-mile stretch of the Baileyville Road in the amount of $1,254,372.

It was lowest among three bids received, which were received at the commission's October 2 meeting.

Funding for the project will be paid from APRA and PILOT funds.

At the request of Sheriff Rich Vernon, the commission approved the purchase of a 2023 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup for the Sheriff's Office in the amount of $42,800. Capital outlay funds earmarked for the Sheriff's Office will be utilized for the purchase.

Also the Commission gave County Emergency Management Director Eddie Aldrine approval to move forward with applying for a grant to help fund the purchase of a tornado siren to be installed at the old Sabetha Lake. If awarded, the grant would pay for 80 percent of the cost, with a 20 percent local match required. Aldrine said the city of Sabetha is willing to help with the cost.
