A western Nebraska county board has voted to remove the elected county treasurer and name a replacement.
Lincoln County commissioners voted unanimously Monday to oust Lorie Koertner and appoint Sue Fleck to replace her. Fleck had retired from the office in January.
The commissioners cited a state law in removing Koertner “for neglecting or refusing to render any account or settlement required by law, and failing or neglecting to account for any balance due the state, county, township, school district or any other municipal subdivision or is guilty of any other misconduct in office.”
Efforts to reach Koertner to comment were unsuccessful. She ran unopposed in November after winning the Republican primary last May.
