Myra Stoney from the Southwest Nebraska Public Health Department stopped by the Chase County Courthouse last Tuesday to present the SWNPHD’s annual report.
Stoney met with commissioners Jodi Thompson, Chuck Vette and Don Weiss, Jr. to update them on many of the services provided by SWNPHD. Free and discounted adult vaccines and lab services, like those seen at health fairs, are some of the options available through the agency.
Plans moved ahead for new county shop buildings in Lamar and Wauneta. The commissioners unanimously accepted bids from Imperial Construction for the Lamar shop and C and S Construction for the Wauneta shop. The bid for the Lamar building is $272,000 and the bid for the Wauneta building is $133,690. Both are scheduled to be done by the end of May 2015.
The commissioners approved a resolution recommitting Chase County to the Nebraska Intergovermental Risk Management Association from July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2018. The county receives dividends from the insurance pool each year.
Other items approved included Mark Spady’s placement on the Champion Mill Board and a request from SCORE Camp for Keno funds, which recieved $5,000 for its 2015 camp.
Due to Veterans’ Day, the next commissioners meeting will be Wednesday, Nov. 12.
