Johnnie Byrd Brewing Company Applying For Special Designated Liquor Permit, Service/Consultant Agreements With NENEDD To Be Approved

WAYNE – The first of two regularly scheduled meetings in the month of July will be held for Wayne City Council this evening featuring a special designated liquor permit as well as service and consultant agreements with Northeast Nebraska Economic Development District.

From council chambers inside City Hall, Board of Director for LENRD and City of Wayne Street and Planning Director, Joel Hansen will open this evening’s meeting with a check presentation. A total of $26,000 will be issued from the Lower Elkhorn Natural Resources District for the Wayne Pedestrian Trail – Phase II.

An action item will follow from Johnnie Byrd Brewing Company for a special designated liquor permit on July 20 – 21 to expand an outdoor beer garden. More information will be brought forward during the meeting as Johnnie Byrd is located in the 1912 City Hall building, 117 West 2nd Street.

A pair of resolution items will also seek approval with the Northeast Nebraska Economic Development District for a service/consultant agreement.

One is an agreement for lead paint services relating to an Owner-Occupied Housing Grant. The City of Wayne was notified last November they would receive up to $315,000 as the funds would be used by the Wayne Community Housing Development Corporation for owner-occupied rehab purposes. The amount was for $250,000, with no match required as the services provided pertain to lead paint inspection, risk assessment and clearance testing as the fee for said services shall not exceed the sum of $15,000.

A second resolution will be for the housing administrative services which shall not exceed the sum of $30,000.

A total of four ordinances on annexing real estate will conclude tonight’s Wayne City Council meeting.

They’ll be second readings for Kardell Industrial Park, Great Dane Trailers, Department of Roads Wayne Office and Heritage Homes.
