Flooding issues hamper Clay County

School Creek flowed across Highway 6 west of Sutton Monday causing the Nebraska Department of Roads to close the highway from Sutton to Highway 14 northbound to Aurora until the flood waters recede.

MELISSAWHITEFOOT | CLAY COUNTY NEWS

Water flows over a gravel road east of Fairfield Monday morning. Flooding was prevalent throughout the county, shutting down several roads.

A strong weather system hit all of Clay County Sunday evening through early Monday morning, making the Memorial Day events and services a messy situation. Fairfield and Harvard services were forced to be held indoors, as many areas of the county, according to the website NeRain, had over three inches of rainfall cover hundreds of acres of farmland in many reaches of the county.

As of early Monday afternoon, the Little Blue River in southern Clay County was flowing out of its banks, while along Highway 6, water from School Creek flowed over the road, forcing the Nebraska Department of Roads to close a section of the highway from Highway 14 north to Aurora to the western edge of Sutton.

Co. Board, sheriff consider wages for deputies

The Clay County Board of Supervisors likes the direction that the Clay County Sheriff’s department is going—the county now has a full slate of eight deputiesand the board wants to keep it that way.

With an ongoing national shortage in law enforcement officers, especially in rural areas, wages are a key way for Clay County to stay competitive in the job market, as well as retain the deputies currently on force.

Sheriff Jeff Franklin gave a wage comparison with area police forces during the board’s regular meeting on May 21 at the courthouse in Clay Center.

Tax relief for our affected communities

After the historic blizzards and flooding rolled through Nebraska and devastated our communities, we’ve heard countless stories of neighbor helping neighbor, and donations and help pouring in from across the country for our hurting communities, farms, and businesses.

I have been working hard in Congress to provide our state with relief – and I am proud to introduce legislation that would give a hand up to individuals and businesses.

Recently, along with Congressman Adrian Smith, I introduced the Disaster Tax Relief Act. This bicameral, bipartisan measure would deliver much-needed tax benefits to communities that were recently designated as “disaster areas.”
