UPDATED: City Council to Revisit Street Assessment Amounts

BROKEN BOW–A controversial topic will yet again be addressed by the Broken Bow City Council. At the November 28 meeting (click here to view story) the council voted to approve street assessments for Street Improvement Districts Nos 2014-1 and 2014-2 (downtown and 5th Avenue).

Those street assessment amounts will be discussed on Tuesday at the noon meeting. The council may or may not vote to approve the amended assessment amounts.

*UPDATE (6:45 p.m. on Monday 1/8): City Administrator Brent Clark informed KCNI/KBBN that the council will only be looking at four properties during Tuesday’s assessment discussion. Those four properties (one property on 5th Avenue, Arrow Seed, Evans Feed, and the former chamber/new Wild Rose Gallery building) will be discussed and have assessments potentially altered due to incorrect footage calculations and/or due to usage of their property by work crews during construction.*

The Broken Bow City Council will meet on Tuesday, January 9, at 12 p.m. in the City Council Chambers at the Municipal Building.

New business includes discussions on the city safe deposit box, flood risk reduction, payments to Chief Construction and Central I.T. Inc. for the library project. The Council will also discuss its agreement with the Central Nebraska Economic Development District (CNEDD) and mayor and council wages.

Judy Petersen with the CNEDD will present to the council and discuss potential rural workforce housing funds.
