County Attorney to check possible zoning violation

After a 20-minute closed session on Monday, Boone County Commissioners directed new County Attorney James Ely, Jr. to investigate a possible violation of Boone County’s zoning laws, with the possibility of proceeding with prosecution.
The closed session was requested by Zoning Administrator Mary Ziemba to discuss investigative proceedings as allowed under the Nebraska Open Meetings Act. County Attorney Ely was asked to remain in the commissioners’ office during the closed session.
Ely said after the closed session that he would investigate a possible violation of the county’s permit requirements, but he gave no further details.
