Gravel Truck Noise An Issue

Budget Public Hearing Sept. 19

Kimball County Highway Superintendent Randy Bymer met with the Kimball County Commissioners on Sept. 5 at their regular meeting to provide an update on the road department.

Bymer said the department is out graveling and that the roads had received a sizable rain north of Bushnell.
