Looking Ahead in Wayne
November 8, 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 Streets. We would love to see you there!
Renovations / Addition to the Clubhouse
The Wayne City Council recently approved funding and accepted a bid to renovate and add on to the existing golf clubhouse. This project has been in the works for about 3 years. The north end of town will look much different next spring with this project taking place as well as a finished Beaumont Event Center.
Comprehensive Development Grant Submittal
The City of Wayne is requesting $350,000 of CDBG Comprehensive Development (CD) Phase II funds from the Nebraska Department of Economic Development (DED). The majority of these funds, if granted, would be used for approximately 175 ADA ramps at pedestrian crossings primarily in the northwest quadrant of town. City staff and representatives from the Northeast Nebraska Economic Development District will be hosting a site visit with the DED the second week of November. We hope to know if the City receives this grant in early 2018. Additional planning would then need to take place, along with design and bidding out the project. If awarded the construction would likely take place early 2019.
Christmas Lights Recycling
It's that time of year. As you get frustrated with those Christmas lights that don't work or worse yet, intermittently work, remember the City encourages you to recycle those strands. The City provides bins for recycling at both the transfer station and City Hall.
