Kearney City Council Considering Marketing Proposal for Veterans Home


KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) -- The Kearney City Council is considering a proposal to contribute $100,000 to help market the city's new veterans home.

The Council will meet Tuesday to discuss the proposal, which would give the money to the Kearney Area Chamber of Commerce to help the city market the new Central Nebraska Veterans Home.

The resolution would allow the chamber to help the city with services and initiatives to assist veterans and others with relocating from the Grand Island area to Kearney.

Kearney beat out Grand Island, Hastings and North Platte to become the new home of the veterans home. Grand Island, where the veterans home is currently located, has vowed to fight the move.
