ROSSTON – Emily Evans was named the new treasurer for the City of Rosston at the August meeting of the Rosston City Council Monday night.

The former treasurer left for personal reasons, according to Rosston Mayor Dale Quarles, who said the job was advertised with three resumes submitted – one being from outside the city limits. He selected Evans, who is also the city’s recorder, saying she knows what goes on at city hall and will do a good job.

In other business, Quarles responded to rumors about the city¬† paying for the billboard honoring the Nevada Blue Jay basketball team for winning the 2020 state title. He pointed out the money for the billboard was raised by private individuals and didn’t cost the city a cent. The city’s only involvement, he said, was to allow it to be erected between city hall and the fire station. He pointed out the billboard as built by students in Nevada High School’s agri class.

The meeting came to an end with a discussion about the 2020 census. Quarles said he’s gone house to house to get people to fill out their forms and encourages everyone to do so as this affects the community’s turnback money from the state. Quarles said he’s dropped letters off at homes as well and got a good response. He added some people came by city hall to get help in filling out their forms online.

Because of these efforts, he said, roughly 63 percent of the Rosston community has submitted its census information, adding this is the highest total  in the county/
