Larry Linstrom, Master of the Masonic Lodge in North Platte and Glenn Mulholland,

recorder for the lodge, appeared to discuss the placement of a cornerstone at the new

Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and Detention Center when it is complete. The size is 16

x 16 x 2. The contents of the container would be the county’s choice except for the

roster of the Grand Lodge Officers which would be part of the contents. The only cost to

the county would be for the architect to design a receptacle for the stone installation and

any refreshments that the county might serve at the dedication. If the County Board

decides to proceed they will need to send a letter requesting the stone be made for the

dedication of the building to the Grand Lodge of Nebraska.

County Board will discuss the placement of the cornerstone and let the lodge know the

decision.

Claudine Thorne, Deputy County Attorney – Child Support Division, reported that

computers will not be provided by the State of Nebraska effective July 1, 2010. The

office receives funding two ways: 1) reimbursement for 66% of allowable costs and 2)

lump sum incentive payments using performance measures. The incentive money is in

a separate fund and can only be used by the child support unit. Therefore, they would

like to use the incentive money that has already been received, to pay for 7 computers,

2 printers and 1 scanner. If we ask for reimbursement, the state will have some

ownership and makes it much more difficult concerning repairs and other issues.

Motion by Deterding, seconded by Roethemeyer to authorize the Lincoln County

Attorney’s Office – Child Support Division to work with the Information Technology

Department for purchase of computers and other hardware. Upon roll call vote

Deterding, Roethemeyer and Hewgley voted “aye”. Nays, none.
