Sarpy County Board to Vote on Treasurer Appointment Sept. 12
The Sarpy County Board of Commissioners will consider Jeff Mikesell as the next Sarpy County Treasurer during the board meeting on Tuesday, September 12, at 3 p.m.
Former county Treasurer Trace Jones resigned, effective August 31. Nebraska law provides that a vacancy in the Treasurer’s Office is filled by appointment by the County Board to serve the remainder of the official's 4-year term.
The board will vote on the appointment on Tuesday.
Ten people applied for the position during the application period, August 4-18. The board during a public meeting on Sept. 5 interviewed the candidates who qualified for an interview during a screening process, including Mikesell.
Dan Toleikis, the county’s Chief Deputy Treasurer, is the interim Treasurer until the board names a permanent replacement.
