YORK – The York City Council will be getting an update on the community center project next week, when they meet in regular session.
Cheree Folts, director of parks and recreation, will address the council about the progress of the in-depth and large scale renovation/repair work that has been taking place at the city facility.
The work began last year and there were delays along the way – thanks to building material availability issues and the discovery of serious structural issues that hadn’t been seen before.
Now, the project is nearing completion and Folts will be providing a better idea of when it might be open to the public once again.
She will also be bringing forward some updated community center rates for consideration.
Also on the council’s Thursday agenda, for Jan. 20:
• The council will consider updating the city’s safety committee.
• Mayor Barry Redfern will be bringing forward some appointment recommendations, to include: the appointment of Sheila Hubbard to the Nebraska Public Power District Retail Rate Review Committee and the Retail Power Review Advisory Board; appointment of Redfern to the York County Aging Services Commission Board; and the appointment of Jeff Beins to the Community Redevelopment Authority Advisory Group.
• They will consider the approval of a special designated license application filed by Grand Central Foods to hold a tasting event – York Uncorked – at the Kilgore Library.
• The sale of a lot in the industrial park, to Duane and Brenda Grotz, will be considered. The lot measures 4.89 acres and the price of the sale is $90,465.
• The council will discuss authorizing subordination of a lien to West Gate Bank for a property in the Seminary Addition.
• Representatives of NPPD will make a presentation regarding crypto-currency.
The public is encouraged to attend the meeting, which will begin at 7 p.m., in the council chambers.
