Special commission meeting is set to discuss Road Use Agreement

Residents of Nemaha County still are anxiously waiting for a decision on the Road Use Agreement for the Soldier Creek Wind Farm. The wind farm, which is supposed to house 120 wind turbines, is to be developed in southern Nemaha County surrounding the communities of Corning and Goff.

Commissioners Gary Scoby, Dennis Henry and Tim Burdiek met in regular session Monday, Feb. 24, and many county residents were expecting a decision on, at least, the Road Use Agreement. Following a one-hour executive session, which was then extended by another hour, the commissioners announced that there would be no action taken.

Following the executive session, the commissioners decided to hold a special meeting at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 26.

“I think it would be safe to say that we hope to sign all the agreements at that time, but there is no guarantee, because there are still a few wrinkles to be ironed out,” said Nemaha County Attorney Brad Lippert.

It is anticipated that the commissioners will have a lengthy executive session at the beginning of the meeting.
