(Neb)-Chadron Council And School Board Both Meeting Tonight

By: John Axtell Posted at: 01/09/2017 01:15 PM
CHADRON - Because last Monday was a legal holiday, both the Chadron school board and Chadron City Council meet tonight...the school board at 5:30 at the district office and the council at 6:00 at city hall.

      The school board has a generally routine agenda that begins with the formal seating of the 3 board members elected in November - Gary Hoffman, Amanda Bannan, and Boone Huffman - as well as the election of board officers.

       The school board will also act on renewal of Superintendent Dr Carolina Winchester's contract, a 3-year agreement that past boards have rolled over after each year.

       The city council agenda includes the second reading of an ordinance setting fees for the Chadron Aquatic and Wellness Center, set to open next month.

       The proposed fees, schedule, and programs were unveiled at the last council meeting and Vice Mayor Miles Bannan is hoping for a lot of public input.

    PLAY SOUNDBITE

Bannan says there are also less comprehensive - and less expensive - options proposed as well as plans for scholarship programs to open the Aquatic and Wellness Center to even more people, especially children from financially-challenged families.

    The council will also discuss a change in street patterns adopted for the 3rd Street-Highway 20 reconstruction project.

        The council turned the 300 block of the one-way north-south streets south of the highway into temporary 2-way streets once the project began closing intersections and is now considering whether to make the change permanent or go back to the way they were.

       The state has pushed the city for decades to turn all the one-way streets into 2-way, saying traffic volumes don't justify one-way status. Past city councils have strongly supported the one-way approach because it provides more on-street parking in those residential areas.
