PILGER, Nebraska (KTIV) – The village clerk of Pilger, Nebraska, will be relieved of her duties at the end of the month.
According to Todd Donner, the Pilger village attorney, Kimberly Nieman will be dismissed from her position with the city effective February 28.
The decision was approved following a meeting of the Board of Trustees of the Village of Pilger Monday. As part of their regular meeting Monday, the board went into closed session “to prevent needless injury to the reputation of an individual regarding the investigation into Village expenditures.”
Neiman is also being suspended without pay pending the discharge, as the board determined “that immediate separation is required,” this according to a release issued by Donner. In addition, a written statement of the reasons for the discharge will also be provided to Nieman.
According to Donner, the Village Board of Trustee initiated an investigation of previous expenditures following a village audit.
That investigation is continuing with the assistance of the Stanton County Sheriff’s office, the Nebraska State Patrol, and other agencies. The Board of Trustees is assisting and fully cooperating with the investigation.
