  • City commissioners will consider revisions to the issuance of a tower permit.
    Conditional use permits are required from the Nebraska City Planning Commission for all communication towers. The setback from any building is equal to the height of the tower.
    No towers will be allowed in areas zoned residential and must be separate from residential structures by a quarter mile, 1,320 feet.
    The zoning also impacts home-installed satellite dishes. No single family residence can have more than two satellite antennas and all dishes are to be located out of the front yard.
    In other action, city commissioners will consider a Nebraska City Tourism and Commerce request to replace downtown trash receptacles with recycling receptacles with paid advertisement panels.
    The Nebraska City Jaycees will seek permission for use of Steinhart Park June 29, with rain date of June 30, for an Independence Day fireworks show. The show will feature 4,400 sheels and 12 ground displays.
    Tammy Bando will request no change in fees for the Nebraska City Swim Team's use of Steinhart Pool.
    The Fraternal Order of Eagles is seeking a liquor license for a beer garden at the Larson Motors property from 6 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. on June 1.
    The Nebraska City Dock Board and Bruce Larson have discussed a wall that belongs to the city, but is connected to his warehouse near Central Avenue and First Street.
    The city has proposed deeding three feet to Larson so the wall is part of his property. Larson has proposed 16 feet so there is room to drive on that side of the building.
    Larson said the wall is part of a former city-owned warehouse that was partially demolished.
    He said the wall is not in danger of collapsing, but Building Inspector Alan Viox has given it a short life span.
