Council makes quick work of agenda items
Discussion about an auction of excess city property and approval of a request for a special license was it for the agenda when Gothenburg City Council members met Nov. 1.
The meeting lasted about seven minutes.
City administrator Bruce Clymer listed several items that will go on the block Nov. 26 during an auction by Brott Auction.
Included in the list of computers, bikes, a fax machine, mower and snow blower is an old police cruiser worth about $5,000, Clymer said.
Because the council will need to pass an ordinance if an item is worth more than $5,000, he said he would check on the value and report back at the Nov. 15 meeting.
He added that Anderson Wrecking Co. of Kearney had already bought 1,260 pounds of copper for $3,591.
On another matter, the council approved a request from OK Bottle Shoppe to receive a specially designated license to sell alcohol at an upcoming event.
Nebraska Salt & Grain will host an open house at a newly remodeled downtown building on Friday.
