Seeking Four-County Juvenile Services Funds Approved By Nemaha County Commissioners

Wednesday morning, March 17, the Nemaha County Commissioners accepted submitting an application for the four-county Juvenile Services Community Plan.

Laura Osborne, program director, notes governing boards of Johnson, Pawnee and Richardson counties also approved seeking $75,745 in grant funds. All county attorneys have also signed off on the submission, she continues.

Funding will go towards a couple of part-time individuals, alternatives to detention and basic operating expenses, Osborne states. Applications are being accepted for the part-time positions, who will work 30 and 15 hours weekly, respectively. They will be based in the office of Angelo Ligouri, deputy county attorney. The diversion director will need to travel throughout the four counties, she says.

“We have had good, quality applicants. I am pleasantly surprised,” Osborne continues.
