Sue Baumann, the newly appointed Otoe County veterans services officer, was introduced to the Otoe County Board of Commissioners by outgoing county veterans services officer Bill Hessler during the board’s Aug. 9 meeting. Baumann began work Aug. 2 at the Otoe County Courthouse.

In other action, the commissioners

amended the zoning free schedule to include a $300 re-zoning fee. County Zoning Administrator David Schmitz told the board this fee was bypassed when the fee schedule was updated about three years ago; and approved Change Order No. 2 regarding the Centennial overlay project to cover an additional $2,150 in repair costs to the roadway incurred when an island was removed on the north end of Centennial Avenue.

The commissioners will next meet at 8:45 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 23 in Room 108 of the Otoe County Courthouse.
