(Neb.)-Public Invited To Chadron Council, Library Meetings Monday Night

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 03/25/2013 08:02 AM

(CHADRON)-The Chadron city council will be convening in a special meeting Monday, March 25th, to discuss whether or not to authorize a grant application to the Nebraska Department of Economic Development for financial assistance from the civic and community center financing fund in connection with the proposed swimming pool project. The grant would provide up to $250,000 of funding to the pool project.
At last week’s city council meeting, city manager Wayne Anderson shared with council members that the grant is specifically for civic and community center financing, and that if a community room is included in the pool project, the project would qualify. Anderson mentioned that a caveat is that the funds would only be available to the city if the pool project were voted through to fruition.
Council member John Gamby said he would like to see the Chadron Public Library also listed on the application as a possible recipient of funds if the pool project does not become a reality. Mayor Karin Fischer said she wanted to see the application filled out as it will be sent before making a decision as well.
Also on the evening agenda, a motion to approve a salary adjustment for city manager Anderson based on a six-month work performance review. The council has met in a couple of executive sessions with Anderson previously.
The city council meeting will begin at 5:00 p.m., which is earlier than most regular meetings, because the Chadron Public Library will be holding the first of three architectural firm presentations in conjunction with an upcoming library renovation project. That meeting will begin at 6:00 p.m., and will feature Humphries|Poli Architects from Denver, Colo. On Tuesday, March 26th at 6:00 p.m., Geiger Architecture from Rapid City, S.D. will present their ideas; and a representative from Bahr Vermeer Haecker from Lincoln will visit on Thursday, March 28th at 6:00 p.m.
Library director Rossella Tesch invites members of the public to attend each presentation, which can also be viewed live on the city’s local access channel, Great Plains channel 19, and then give their feedback on which firm they think would be the best candidate to work on a renovation and expansion project for the library.
Feedback forms will be available for public comment at each of the presentations and online at www.chadronpubliclibrary.com. Feedback can also be e-mailed to cpublib507@gmail.com. Feedback forms need to make their way back to the library by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 5th.
