REPAIR REPORTS (street/sign repairs, etc.)
-The trustees reported that one of the residents in the Village must be patching the street with asphalt. They thank whoever is doing it. --The property line for Costco has been marked off and is very close to the back of the Taylor and Gay properties on the east side of the Village.

-Park Street will have to be repaired before the rest of the streets in the Village because it has broken down significantly. The Village will ask the Fire Department if they would repair the approach when the streets are repaired.


-The clerk attended several zoom meeting with Three Rivers concerning COVID-19 and has been kept updated on closures and regulations.
-Chairman Nielsen met with Steve Dodd, the Village engineer and discussed plans for the roads. Dodd will start working up bid proposals to send out for road repairs needed in the Village.
-Chairman Nielsen contacted Terry Seawall at Community Bank for possible funding for the road repairs until FEMA reimburses the Village.
-Chairman Nielsen met with the Nebraska Department of Roads about the HWY project. The asphalt overlay covered up the manhole covers on the highway and had to be dug up and built up so they could be found easily.


​1. The Final 2020 Hazard Mitigation Plan was posted online by NNEDD for all the trustees to review for approval.

2. The FEMA claim for the flood damage to the Village hall was submitted and approved.

3. The Louden property on Boulevard Street was discussed again. No action will be taken at this time.

4. The Carstensens called the Chairman and let him know they are aware of the condition of the property on Main Street and are taking care of it.

5. No additional information on the lawsuit between the Village and S2 Refuse.


1. Bellino Fireworks application for 2020 fireworks sale was approved by a motion from J. Nielsen and second from Abrahamson.

2. Dale Wiedner is erecting a fence on his property on Main Street. The fence will not violate any Village ordinances so no additional actions are required.

3. Jerry Abrahamson may build a garage on his property on Main Street. He will follow all Village building ordinances. He may also put in a pool and will construct a 4 ft. fence around the pool.

4. JEO Consulting asked if the Village receives any funds for maintenance on the drain system from the city of Fremont. Chairman Nielsen said the Village does not receive any funds but the Village should look into it. JEO will prepare the documents for bids for the lift station repair and will solicit and review bids when they are received.


1. The size of the burn pile on Hugh Pedersen property was brought up. As long as a burn permit is issued and the burn does not get out of hand there is nothing the Village can do about the size.

2. Dirt was brought in on Broad Street and placed at the sign on the Schuler property. It looks like the sign company who maintains the sign may have done this to reinforce the poles.
