Shannon Vanderheiden, Executive Director of the West Central District Health Department, appeared to request $400,000.00 of the CARES act funds received by the county or the amount that county would approve. When the DHM ended for Covid-19 the funding stopped coming in, but they are still doing testing, vaccinations and supplying PPE equipment. The funds would be used for consulting with UNMC, payroll, PPE equipment and testing.

Deputy County Attorney, Tyler Volkmer, stated that these funds must be spent or contracted for by December 31, 2021. He questioned how they could get these funds spent or encumbered in that amount of time.

Vanderheiden questioned if prior related expenses could be considered for these funds.
