VILLAGE OF EAGLE
March 6, 2018
The Village Board of Trustees met in regular session at 7:00 p.m. on March 6, 2018 with Moore, Young, Schukei and Meier present. Rash was absent. The Agenda items listed thereon were sufficiently descriptive to give the public reasonable notice of the matters to be considered at the meeting. The Chair, at the beginning of the meeting, informed the public about the location of the posted current copy of the Open Meetings Act. Chairperson Moore named the three (3) areas where the agenda was posted as follows: Village Clerk’s Office, Eagle Fire & Rescue Department and Eagle State Bank.
Chairperson Moore opened the Public Hearing at 7:00 p.m. concerning a Class D Liquor License for Casey’s Retail Company DBA Casey’s General Store 2725, located at 310 Highway 34. Young asked if there have been any alcohol-related complaints at this address. Nystrom said no. Moore asked if there were any comments from the public. There were no comments from the public.
The public hearing was closed at 7:01 p.m.
Motion by Young, second by Meier, to approve Casey’s General Store 2725’s Class D Liquor License at 310 Highway 34. Voting: Ayes – 4. Motion carried.
Open Forum – John Surman (450 Eagle Dr.) said members of the community are questioning him as to why the former Buel Trucking building is not planned for use as a Community Center; on July 5, 2017 the board authorized the Chairperson to sign the Civic & Community Center Financing Fund and on September 18, 2017 the board agreed to lease the same property for use as a municipal building from Eagle Facilities & Grounds Association. Surman said when the language was changed from Community Center to municipal building it may have created some confusion to residents. Moore said the planning grant received by the Village was titled the Civic & Community Center Financing Fund and was administered by the Nebraska Department of Economic Development; this grant was issued to study the potential uses of the existing building and alternative options. Surman said the public had the understanding the existing building was going to be used as a Community Center. Moore said no final decisions have been made and the board has not committed to going any specific direction at this time. Surman said he’d like to see the board be more consistent in the minutes as to what they title the existing building. Mary Schukei (820 Applewood Dr.) identified potholes needing addressed at Eagle Drive & G Street and 3rd Street east of Casey’s. Terry Caddy (21319 Holdrege St.) asked if the board has looked into the possibility of utilizing the new municipal building as a temporary Community Center until a long-term plan is formulized. Moore said this has not been considered primarily due to the ADA accessibility concerns and the cost to meet these requirements.
Krystal Rash arrived at 7:18 p.m.
