County changes policy on culvert installation

Scotts Bluff County Roads Director Bob Bennett says the county will begin enforcing a 1975 resolution which says the county will be reimbursed for all expenses involved in installing culverts.

Bennett said the county has been providing the labor and equipment for such installation at no cost in the past, which would cost the county anywhere from $500 to $1,500 depending on the job.

Bennett says he just wanted to let landowners know that when they request a culvert to be installed in the future, they will be picking up all the costs.
