YORK, Neb. (AP) - York County is preparing an agreement to share its veterans service officer with neighboring Fillmore County.

The York County officer, Nick Wollenburg, told York County commissioners Tuesday that Fillmore County veterans reported problems last year with their county’s veterans service officer, who eventually was ousted. A new officer started work this past April, but he quit after a few weeks.

The York News-Times reports (https://bit.ly/2aeWoWs ) that Fillmore County officials then contacted the York County veterans office to ask whether it could serve Fillmore County’s veterans. Wollenburg told commissioners that he thinks the task is doable, especially considering Fillmore County intends to hire an assistant for him.

The commissioners told Wollenburg to draft the agreement, which will be reviewed by both county attorneys, both county boards and both veterans service committees.
