Village moves ahead with lagoon grant
Resignation of village clerk Pam Diehl accepted.
The Brady trustees are working on a matching grant to repair the village’s troublesome lagoon.
During a June 11 meeting, they approved several requirements for the application dealing with such things as an environmental review, funds request authorization, fair housing, implementation and more.
The city could receive a revolving loan fund through Community Development Block Grant funds at 2% interest.
Matching funds from the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality could also be available.
Trustees also entered into a half-hour closed session to discuss possible litigation involving a planning permit.
Upon reconvening, trustees gave a variance to property owners to build an accessory building with living quarters next to an original house.
After a public hearing on an application for $155,000 in grant funds for owner-occupied housing and a demolition project, the trustees closed the hearing and approved a resolution dealing with several items for the application such as a statement of assurances and an environmental review.
The trustees also decided to continue using existing Community Development Block Funds in the amount of $15,595 to rehabilitate housing in the village.
Another closed session was needed, trustees said, to discuss personnel.
As a result, trustees went into a 12-minute session.
When they reconvened, they accepted the resignation of village clerk Pam Diehl but asked if she would stay through her eight-year anniversary as clerk which would be Oct. 11.
Diehl plans to move to Daytona Beach, FL, later this year.
In other business, trustees:
approved a new village insurance policy for 2014-2015 through Arnold Insurance Agency.
approved a resolution declaring several properties around Brady as nuisances
discussed the city’s comprehensive plan but took no action.
