FALLS CITY — Richardson County commissioners have increased prison staff pay and decided to restart construction of a county store in Rulo.

At Tuesday’s meeting, commissioners reviewed the offers received on June 7 and voted not to accept any offers. The project may be subject to a new offer at a later date.

The county also approved a law enforcement agreement with Humboldt for $228,887.

The board considered a sheriff’s request for pay raises for law enforcement center employees. Commissioners received a salary comparison for Nemaha, Johnson, Pawnee and Otoe counties.

Commissioner Rick Karas proposed raising the salaries of the jailers, prison overseer, prison administrator, and office staff, which was unanimously approved. The prison administrator would earn $22 per hour and the clerical staff would earn $19 per hour.

A bid of $12,590 from Andrew Tuckpointing has been approved for repairs to the exterior of the north side of the courthouse.
