Board of Supervisors

Buffalo County is under the Supervisor-Township plan of County Government. The County is divided into seven districts. A person from each district is elected to serve on the County Board by the voters in that district.

County Supervisors serve terms of four years each. A Supervisor may serve as many terms as he/she wishes. The Supervisors terms are staggered - four Supervisors are elected in one election year and the other three Supervisors are then elected in the second year.

A Supervisor must be a resident of the district they are elected to represent. If they should move away from their district during their term, they must resign their seat on the County Board. The annual salary for a Buffalo County Supervisor in 2009 is $17,250 with the Chairman of the Board receiving $19,650. The Supervisors are also allowed a mileage expense of $.505 cents per mile when conducting County business away from their home.

By law, the County Board is required to meet only once a year, which is on the 2nd Tuesday following the first Thursday in January. The Buffalo County Board chooses to conduct its meetings on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month. These meetings begin at 9:00 a.m. and are open to the public. Minutes from each meeting are published in two designated County newspapers -- for 2009, they are the Kearney Hub and the Gibbon Reporter. The second newspaper alternates every four years with the other small town newspapers in the county. During the first meeting of each year, the County Board elects a Chairman and Vice-Chairman of the Board.

In general, the County Board is the representative and guardian for the County. The County Board is the agency, which in official matters, acts for and on behalf of the County. The County Board derives its functions from the Legislature and its powers are prescribed by Statutes enacted by the Legislature.

My name is Deb VanMatre and I serve as President of the Board of Education for Gibbon Public School. In this position, I preside over the meetings of the six-member elected board. I am completing my 10th year of service on the board and my 8th year as president. Responsibilities of the Board of Education include planning (vision, goals, and assessment), policymaking (developing, adopting and reviewing), the selection and evaluation of the superintendent, and the approval and adoption of the annual budget.
Gibbon Public School is a K-12 district located in central Nebraska. The following are 2007-2008 GPS statistics. The district had a total enrollment of 552 students, with 299 in K-6 and 253 in 7-12. The demographics of the district included 41.5% free/reduced lunch, 34.6% ethnic diversity, 16.1% special education, 11.1% limited English proficiency and 8.0% high ability learner. There are 165.6 square miles in the district, in both Buffalo and Kearney counties. Total district valuation was $235.5 million, the district budget was $6.8 million, and state aid was $1.8 million. The total levy for the district was 1.380497, with a general fund levy of .954895 and a bond fund levy of .425602.
In September 2006, the majority of the patrons of the district voted in favor of a bond issue to build a new K-12 facility. Completion of the new facility is scheduled for June 2009.
The mission of GPS is “Working Together for Success”. We believe GPS provides a positive environment in which all students can be successful; GPS provides a safe environment that contributes to the success of all students; our educators inspire students to set and achieve high goals; family and community involvement is essential to student success; and our curriculum and instructional programs encourage all students to develop the skills necessary to become effective citizens.
The above provides general information about the district, but the heart and soul is truly the students, faculty and staff, and THEY ARE THE BEST!
Safe travels, BUFFY!
