The Sarpy County Board of Commissioners today tabled a resolution to appoint Trace Jones to the office of Sarpy County Treasurer.
The Board tabled the resolution after District Court Judge Geoffrey C. Hall issued a preliminary injunction requested by former Sarpy County Treasurer Brian Zuger. The preliminary injunction does not reinstate Zuger, it merely prevents the Board from naming a permanent replacement until Zuger’s legal challenge is heard or until the injunction is lifted.
Jones will continue to serve as Interim Sarpy County Treasurer until all legal matters are resolved. At that time, if it is necessary to appoint a Treasurer to complete the term of office, the Board will place the resolution on a future board agenda to appoint Jones.
The Sarpy County Board is currently reviewing the judge’s ruling and considering their legal options.
