County accepts payment offer from state for road use

Nemaha County Courthouse

(KMZA)--The Nemaha County Commission has approved a contract with the state and to accept a $25,000 payment for the use of county roads during a box culvert replacement project next spring.

The commission took the action when they meet last week following discussion with Michael Hagemann with the Kansas Department of Transportation.

The state plans to replace a box culvert on K-9 Highway near V Road and use county roads as an unofficial detour during the project.

In other business, Tom Gudenkauf came before the commission during the public comment portion of the meeting. He spoke to commissioners on behalf of P and J Solid Waste Management about his interest in purchasing the county's transfer station. Commissioners said they would take the matter under consideration.

And County Administrator Mike Miller informed commissioners that he and Senior Services/Public Transit Director Tammy Epple spoke to a company about a capital improvement plan for the flat roofs on county owned buildings. Commissioners advised Miller to look into the issue further and possibly talk with other companies at this time.
