KEARNEY - The Buffalo County Board of Supervisors decided Tuesday the new county seal will use 1855 as the date Buffalo County was founded.The seal was adopted in June 2008, and the board commissioned Icon Poly of Gibbon to manufacture five 42-inch diameter polyurethane versions to hang on county buildings. A claim for $3,944.90 was paid to the business on Nov. 25

The seal was approved with the words "Established 1864," but board members recently questioned whether the year was accurate.

After some discussion Tuesday, the board agreed to use 1855, the year Buffalo County's boundaries were established, on the seal.
