Scotts Bluff County attorney to officially resign June 30th

After 26 years of working in Scotts Bluff County, attorney Doug Warner will officially resign on June 30th.
 
During Monday night's commissioners meeting Chairman Mark Masterton read a letter from Warner to the board.

In the letter Warner thanked the board for their support during his many years serving the public, eight of which he was county attorney.

When commissioners joked about voting to decline Warner's resignation he said that he would refer to his attorney.
 
Commissioner Ken Meyer told Warner there will be big shoes to fill.

"I don't think we can ever find a finer prosecutor," said Meyer.

Commissioner Mike Marker shared similar sentiments. "You've been a real asset to the community and to your office and to us all. I know you put in an ungodly amount hours so I appreciate everything you've done for us," he said.
 
"You have to be able to take yourself out of your position once in awhile to keep your sanity," said Commissioner Steve Stratton. "And it's hard to do it when you're in your position. I appreciate all you did and all you have done and I hope you continue to do well."
 
Warner plans to work as a prosecutor for the attorney's general's office in Scottsbluff. He says Dave Eubanks, a private attorney in Scottsbluff, is expected to be hired before the end of June in order to take the position over by mid-July.
