The Antelope County Board of Supervisors met last week. Among the many items on the agenda, supervisors was a road which will serve the new anhydrous ammonia/bulk fertilizer facility to be located near Royal.
In particular, of concern is a road to be constructed off of Highway 20 to serve as the main entrance to the plant. Board members discussed how Central Valley Ag owners of the plant are to pay for the cost of the road per ana greement with Antelope County, the costs of which the county will pay back over a five-year period. A decision was made to continue with the agreement approved earlier this year.
Different paving option costs will be sought from CVA for the supervisors to review at a later date.
In other action from the meeting:
Adopted — A resolution was addopted, accepting the road closing study for 525 Avenue located between sections 15 and 16, Neligh Township. A road closing hearing will be held July 10 at 10 a.m.
Another resolution adopted will allow the County Highway Superintendent to do a roaqd closing study for the west half of 867 Road located between sections 18 and 19 Eden Township.
Under consideration — Board members discussed placing weight limit signs for bridges at various county intersections.
