Manley Board of Trustees meets the first Thursday of the month in the Community Building at 7PM.  The next one is this Thursday, March 3rd.

Mark down Sunday, April 10th on your calendar!!!  The Manley Fire Department will be hosting a Pancake feed from 8 AM to 1:30 PM with pancakes, sausage, biscuits & gravy and fellowship.  This is a big fundraiser for them as they are transitioning to a new system for call outs.  It’s called the I AM RESPONDING SYSTEM.  They can tell who is responding to the firehouse to assist so they can get out quicker to the scene instead of waiting for someone who may not even be on their way.  They are also looking for 10 more volunteers for the Department!  The state has allotted them 25 members and they are only at 15.  Contact Chief Larry if you are interested in becoming a member of this team.

Pillage The Village will take place on Sat., Aug 20, 2016.  If you would like to be a part of the Craft/Vendor show or Flea Market this year, contact Tim Glas (515) 402-7185 or at amsoyscents@outlook.com ASAP!  We will have a flea market, Craft/Vendor Show, Non-profit showcase to go along with our tractor pull, kick ball tourney, city wide garage sales etc.

The Village Trustees are investigating ways to bring money into the community due to aging roads, pumps at the sewer station (1 has already gone down and cost the town around $5,000).  Suggestions are greatly appreciated.

A traffic study is under way currently  on the Spur and Elm St.  A 4th stop sign is being considered to slow drivers down coming into town.  The Cass Co Sheriff’s Department has been asked to provide more enforcement at that corner to stop drivers who fail to stop at the stop sign going out of town (westbound) as well as when the new sign goes up to incoming vehicles (eastbound).  Just  a reminder that running a stop sign or failure to completely stop at a stop sign is a traffic violation.  Please don’t hit someone because you were going over the 25MPH Village Speed Limit and failed to stop at a stop sign.

The one and six year roads plan for the Village was passed without any public discussion. 

A soup supper with desserts will be Feb 21st.  Denise Swenson is organizing this fun event.  Bring a soup and dessert and eat!  Free admission!  This will be held at the Community Building. Flyer is at the top of the page.

The Manley Community Building is for rent!  Downstairs/Kitchen (up to 25 people) is $50.  The whole building is $100.  For more info and to schedule an event, contact Jolene Dalton, Village Clerk at the office.

If you plan to build, add to, remove, or move a structure, you must talk to Betty Meyer PRIOR to starting the project!

During the Village Board of Trustee’s meetings a report from our Water Specialist is given.  If you want to know how healthy your drinking water is, stop down and hear from Jack Faubion who gave a clean bill of health last Thursday!

Do you know that Manley has a facebook page???  Check out all the happenings on social media!

A sign will be placed at the front of the community building/Village office this Spring.

The Village Board has secured FREE Radon testing kits for Manley residents!!!  Contact our Village Clerk if you would like one!

If your 911 address is not clearly marked on your residence, you need to get this accomplished immediately.  It is required by Village Ordinance.  If you need assistance in doing this, the Board will help.

If you have anything you would like to have included in the newsletter contact Tim Glas @ editor@manleynebraska.com

PRESS RELEASE
For Immediate Release
For more information contact: Chuck Hutchison (402) 804-8282 chuck4oppd@gmail.com
Chuck Hutchison announces candidacy for OPPD Board
Bellevue, NE (January 21, 2016) – Chuck Hutchison, a 24-year Navy veteran from Bellevue, announced his candidacy for OPPD Director representing Subdivision 4.  Subdivision 4 includes portions of Sarpy, Cass, Otoe, Johnson, Nemaha, Pawnee, and Richardson Counties.
Hutchison is invested in local real estate and has served Nebraska civic organizations for 20 years.  This service includes chairman of a sanitation improvement district, condo association president, church treasurer, youth ministry, and a chamber of commerce leadership program.  He holds a Master of Science in Engineering Management from the University of Nebraska and served as a nuclear engineer during his Navy submarine career.
“In my candidacy, I see an opportunity to apply my expertise to serving local communities.  With OPPD’s 44% rate increase over the past 8 years, I will focus my attention on delivering low-cost, reliable power to residents, farmers, and business owners.  Nebraska and OPPD have lost their cost advantage over neighboring MidAmerican Energy and other private utilities.  This hurts all residents and makes Nebraska less attractive for economic development.  It is time for new, innovative leadership to navigate the changing landscape of the power industry.”
“I look forward to a positive campaign, meeting OPPD’s customers, and tackling challenges.”
For more information on Chuck Hutchison’s campaign, please visit www.chuck4oppd.com.
