Commissioners had little to decide Tuesday morning after a robust meeting a week ago, during which they spent $136,000 for security cameras for the courthouse and its immediate environs and $18,000 to aid USD 258 to improve visual security at Humboldt Elementary School.
They also then approved levying 1 mill $141,000 given 2017s assessed valuation to support Bowlus Fine Arts Center operations.
Commissioners put off a week on deciding whether to accept a bid of $2,507 from Johnny Rinehard, Humboldt, to purchase the countys discarded senior service van. Rineharts was the only bidder for the vehicle, which has 138,000 miles on its odometer. County Counselor Alan Weber said he would report next Tuesday on other means of disposal.
