The West Point City Council received an update Tuesday night from the LB 840 Economic Development Citizen Advisory Review Committee during its six month report
The program has put approximately $850,000 back into 10 community businesses, including the West Point Dance Company, which was approved Tuesday night.
The council also heard from Lisa Eisenmenger about water quality concerns. She said brown or yellow water has been showing up for the last year and a half staining clothes and causing concerns over possible effects on health. City Administrator Tom Goulette says the city will hire an independent company to take a look at the filter system. He says water concerns have been a hit and miss situation.
The same contractor that did work on Phase Two of the Trails and Pathways project in West Point will do Phase Three as well which Tom says includes County Road 18 up Grove Street to the transfer station and then the Lindberg Loop into the Wilderness Park area. There will also be some work coming off of the Neligh Lake area to the levy.
The council will start meeting at 5:30 rather than 7 starting with the November meeting until Spring.
