Looking Ahead in Wayne
May 31, 2017
City Council Meetings
Regular City Council meetings are at 5:30 p.m. on the first and third Tuesdays of each month in city hall at 306 Pearl Street.
BRAN Ride coming June 7th and 8th
Reminder that the Bike Ride Across Nebraska (BRAN) will camp overnight at the rugby fields June 7th in Wayne and June 8th in Wakefield. This year's theme celebrates Native American culture and their route will take them through the Omaha Reservation.
Mowing Your Lawn
Remember, we charge $300 per hour including the time to haul away the grass if we have to mow a property. We send a 5-day notice by mail to the owner and now it on the day after the deadline date in the letter. If the bill isn't paid we file a lien on the property. We began doing this several years ago because of all the out-of-town property owners who don't make arrangements to have their property mowed.
Grant Funds Projects Meeting - June 15th
Wayne has the potential to receive up to $750,000 in grant funds to be used for community projects in the northwest and southeast quadrants and some of the southwest quadrant of Wayne. We did a survey of residents in March and April for input to prepare a plan for the use of those funds. On June 15th we'll discuss the results of those surveys and what we should include in our plan. Past uses of these funds have been demolition of abandoned properties, the tornado shelter/restroom in East Park and street and water projects. We're meeting at 5:30 pm and 7 pm in the City Auditorium North Meeting Room.
