The Wayne Mayor and City Council have appointed Beth Porter as the next City Treasurer/Finance Director. Beth will be replacing veteran Finance Director Nancy Braden, as Braden retires at the end of 2017. We welcome Beth to the City's team and look forward to working with her long into the future!
Comprehensive Development Grant Award
The City of Wayne has received a $350,000 grant from the Nebraska Department of Economic Development to be used for improving public accessibility in defined low-to-moderate income residential neighborhoods, including sidewalk (ADA compliant) and infrastructure improvements. The City identified in a previous notice and resolution the same improvements and plan to install approximately 175 ADA ramps at pedestrian crossings. Local matching funds of $76,750 and $76,750 in leveraged funds will be provided by the City and will come from the 2nd Street paving and storm sewer project to be completed in 2018. The planning phase of this grant funded project should be completed in 2018 with construction taking place in 2019.
Online Utility Bill Pay
The City of Wayne recently found a website, Doxo.com, that was advertising to accept utility payments for the City. The City has
affiliation with this site and cannot guarantee any payments to your accounts from this site. Please be extremely cautious with any site you find like this. The City of Wayne does offer online utility bill payment, but only through one secure site (
). This site is managed by the City's utility billing software company. If you have any questions about online utility bill pay, please contact the City offices.
