With only two-of-three board members present, Chase County Commissioners visited with Chase County residents during the public forum of the Chase County Commissioners meeting Dec. 8.

Duane Dinnel talked with commissioners Dave Hogsett and Chuck Vette about CREP prices. After Dinnel left, Hogsett and Vette were later joined by Chase County Assessor Dottie Bartels. Bartels said following the upcoming Nebraska Tax Equalization and Review Commission decision, CREP prices will be set.

Bob and Burnetta Ahrens attended the public forum to ask commissioners to include common mullein on the county’s noxious weed list. Commissioners said they would look into the procedure.

Lutheran Family Services’ Christina Berry updated the board on the Southwest Nebraska Diversion Program and the group discussed the Southwest Nebraska Juvenile Services Comprehensive Community Plan.

Board members approved the plan.

Berry also presented a joint grant application for the Community Based Juvenile Services Aid Program for Chase, Dundy, Furnas, Hayes, Hitchcock and Red Willow counties. Red Willow County will be the base of operations for the programs and will be in charge of the distribution of grant funds and financial aid reports.

Resolution No. 15-21 was approved, cancelling $10,787.96 worth of Chase County Ambulance debt.

The next meeting of the Chase County Commissioners will be Tuesday, Dec. 22 at 8 a.m. MT.
