Street Closure, Resolution Items To Be Adopted During Wayne City Council Meeting

WAYNE – For the second time this month the Wayne City Council will hold their regularly scheduled meeting from the council chambers inside City Hall.

The Tuesday, August 17 meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. as Sandy Brown with the Wayne Green Team is requesting a street closure for the return of the Electronics Recycling Event. The event will close traffic to westbound vehicles on 3rd Street between Pearl and Lincoln Streets creating two lanes of eastbound traffic only on Saturday, September 18 from 8 – 10 a.m.

Council will then hear more background on the Northeast Nebraska Mutual Aid agreement for approval among several communities and rural fire districts. This would be to respond to other members’ emergency fire calls if there is a fire or disaster too big for the local fire fighters to control.

Marketing Manager with American Broadband, Pam Adams will also provide an update on their “Build Out Timeline”.

The “Pond Feasibility Study” from Olsson, which was tabled earlier this month is back on the agenda. Olsson was asked to submit a cost to add a soil test to this proposal. Council will look to act on the original proposal or on the additional soil proposal.

A series of resolution items include adopting requirements and grant guidelines from the Department of Economic Development (DED) for their procurement procedures and code of conduct. Another DED policy adoption will pertain to prohibiting the use of excessive force by the police department against nonviolent civil rights demonstrators.

Wayne City Council will end with a resolution item in authorizing the signing of the Municipal Annual Certification of Program Compliance Form 2021 per the Nebraska Board of Public Roads Classifications and Standards. This must be adopted and returned by October 31, 2021.
