Ogallala Board of Health
May 15, 2007
A meeting of the Ogallala Board of Health was called to order at 7:30 P.M. by Chairman Buck Bassett in the City of Ogallala Administration Building, 411 East Second Street, Ogallala, Nebraska. The meeting was convened in accordance with the Open Meetings Act. Members present: Buck Bassett, Mary Lou Heelan, Dr. Kurt Johnson and Dave Kling. Absent: Dr. Paul Foy. Also present: Ogallala Police Department Code Enforcement Officer Eric Troxel.
Notice of the meeting was given in advance by publication in the Keith County News, the designated method of giving notice. Notice of the meeting was delivered to members of the Board of Health by hand delivery of an Ogallala Police Officer.
A motion was made by Heelan to approve the minutes of the April 17, 2007 Board of Health meeting, seconded by Dr. Johnson. Voting Yes: Bassett, Kling, Dr. Johnson and Heelan. Voting No: None. Absent: Dr. Foy Motion carried.
Public Forum: Bassett opened the public forum and invited any individual wishing to speak to the board to come to the podium. Bassett advised that the Public Forum would remain open for the duration of the public meeting.
Officer Troxel presented the Code Enforcement Activity for April/May 2007. A marked increase in weed violations was noticed.
Discussion was held in regards to 1314 East 4th Street. The basement house appears to be somewhat secured, but the weeds will probably need to be mowed by the city again. A letter sent to the owner was actually signed for this year, but no progress has been noted.
Discussion was held in regards to the old Chandler Building. Dave Kling advised that he did not think that the building had sold at the Sheriff’s Sale on April 24th. It appears that the items that had been stored in the building had been moved to the lot south of the building. Officer Troxel was going to contact Joe Roberts and see what the status is.
No further business to come before the Board, Kling made a motion to adjourn, seconded by Dr. Johnson. Voting Yes: Bassett, Kling, Dr. Johnson and Heelan. Voting No: None. Absent: Dr. Foy. Motion Carried.
Meeting adjourned at 7:50 P.M.
Secretary Dave Kling
