Commissioners to hold last meeting of fiscal year

YORK – The York County Commissioners will be holding their last meeting of the 2022-23 fiscal year on Tuesday, June 27.

Part of the meeting will include discussing the search for a zoning administrator. The position, which is part-time, is crucial right now because of the pending regulations pertaining to solar fields and carbon capture pipelines. Discussions about those regulations have been held by the county’s planning commission and soon, drafts will come before the county board.

Another key role of the zoning administrator will center around the future update of the county’s comprehensive plan – as the current plan is nearing the end of its 10-year suggested lifespan.

The commissioners have been advertising the position and have received some applications. They also announced during their last meeting that at least one interview had been scheduled.

Also on Tuesday’s agenda:

  • The board will consider reappointing Sally Ruben to the York County Visitors Bureau Committee.
  • They will meet with Lisa Hurley, director of the York County Development Corporation, as she makes her annual report and budget request.
  • Shari Wurtz-Miller from Blue Valley Community Action, will make the agency’s budget request for the 2023-24 fiscal year.
  • Carmen Hinman from Hope Crisis Center will make the entity’s annual report and budget request.
  • Some funding transfers will be necessary, for departments that exceeded their budgets for this fiscal year.
  • The board will consider a revised agreement with Everbridge.
  • As the board of equalization, the commissioners will start the process of hearing valuation protests.

The public is encouraged to attend the meeting or watch online – it can be viewed live on the county’s Facebook page and recordings can be watched at https://www.facebook.com/people/York-County-Nebraska/100064511569801/?sk=videos.
