City Council Approves Reserved Parking At Broken Bow High School

BROKEN BOW— A quick and efficient Broken Bow City Council meeting rounded out the evening on Tuesday, November 10.

Amy Staples appeared before the Council to ask approval on reserving spots at the Broken Bow High School as a post-prom gift. Staples said the school had already approved reserving the spots, but it was later found out that the street was owned by the city and would need to be approved through the Council. The Council approved four spots to be reserved by post-prom and Indian Nation.

Also approved was a 30-day extension for a home at 139 S. 14th Ave. The home in question has been unsightly and is in need of cosmetic work. The owner stated during the meeting that he was working on improvements including painting, cleaning up tree branches, and making the home livable. Broken Bow Police Chief Steve Scott said he would not oppose an extension which was granted by the Council.

Other approvals included adding signors for bank accounts at Bruning Bank and Nebraska State Bank, contract negotiations for the new supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system, approving ‘housecleaning’ items for the Handibus, and creating a “No Parking” space in front of the Driver’s License Examiner’s Office.

The Council also entered closed session at approximately 6:20 PM for a strategy session with respect to collective bargaining and litigation.

The next Broken Bow City Council meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 24 at 6 PM.
