Late taxes closed session topics for commissioners
McCOOK, Neb. -- Red Willow County commissioners took no action Monday morning following a closed session during their weekly meeting on the courthouse third floor.
The closed session was called at 10:15 a.m., in conjunction with a meeting with Randy Dean, a member of the board of trustees of the county-owned Hillcrest Nursing Home, The purpose of the meeting was to discuss professional review activities and potential litigation, both of which can be legally discussed in a session excluding the public and press.
County attorney Paul Wood was called away from the courthouse at the last minute, so deputy attorney Phil Lyons sat in on the meeting.
The closed session closed at 10:40 a.m., and the commissioners said nothing about the topics of discussion and took no action after coming back into regular session.
Also during the commissioners weekly meeting, county treasurer Sue Wesch told commissioners she will advertise delinquent real estate taxes in the McCook Gazette on Feb. 3, 10 and 19.
Wesch said she started with nearly 500 parcels before property owners came in to catch up on their taxes and avoid publication. One parcel was eliminated from publication because it is involved in bankruptcy proceedings.
