Nemaha Co Commission organizes for 2024

Nemaha County Courthouse

(KMZA)--The Nemaha County Commission has organized for the new year.

During their annual organizational meeting last week, 1st District Commissioner Ben Glace was appointed as chairman for 2024. He replaces Jason Koch, who served as chairman last year.

3rd District Commissioner Dylan Keim was appointed as co-chairman for 2024.

At the request of County Emergency Management Director Eddie Aldrine, the commission approved a disaster declaration resolution due to the winter storms, which allows the county to request state resources if needed.

Aldrine informed the Commission the county was not awarded a grant for a new tornado siren to be located at the Sabetha Lake. The county will no longer be pursuing the grant.

In other business, the Commission signed an agreement with the Kansas Department of Transportation for the replacement of a bridge on O Road. State funding will pay for 90 percent of the project cost, with the county providing a 10 percent match.
