The Nebraska City Police Department increased its staff by two at Monday’s Nebraska City City Council meeting.
Mayor Bryan Bequette swore in officers Brennon Flash and Andrew Faulk, and the officers introduced their families to the audience before being badged by their wives.
The council also authorized Construction and Facilities Manager Marty Stovall to sell three dump trucks belonging to the city roads department.
The vehicles will be sold at auction on May 13. Proceeds from the sale, along with funds previously earmarked for the purchase of a used tractor, will be used to purchase one used dump truck for the roads department, according to Stovall.
Council members also passed a resolution to approve an additional $3,100 in fees for the 4th Corso Viaduct project.
The additional fees would go toward staking the right of way to allow property owners to better see where their new property lines are, rather than trying to locate them on a map, said Stovall.
In other action, the council:
Approved a request from Blue Rivers Public Transportation to set up tables and chairs for a lunch seating area at 109 S. 9th St. on Tuesday, April 11;
Approved a request to use Wildwood Park for a Seven Feathers District day camp on April 22 from the Nebraska City Cub Scout Packs 353 and 346;
Approved a request from Relay for Life Otoe County to host an information table in Memorial Way on Saturday, April 29;

Approved a request from the Nebraska City Jaycees to host a fly-in breakfast at the airport on Sunday, April 30;
Approved a request to use the cemetery hay field for a Civil War re-enactment from Oct. 6 through 8; and
Tabled a discussion on the city’s sales tax revenue budget until its next meeting.
The Nebraska City City Council’s next regular meeting is set for 6 p.m. Monday, April 17 in the Bill Davis Room of City Hall, 1409 Central Ave.
