Hall County Public Works building discussed in Board Supervisors meeting
GRAND ISLAND, Neb. —
The Hall County Board of Supervisors heard a few major topics that caused dispute on Tuesday.
One matter including the Hall county Public Works building.
The building was designed in 1940 and while the department has grown, the building has not.
Many employees said there is no room for equipment or work space.
Now, they are deciding how much money to spend and what exactly to spend it on.
Whether that be building a new Public Works office, making reasonable improvements, or just leaving the building as it is for a few years.
"Take it to a vote of the people in a few years. Let us taxpayers get our heads above water and don't push our heads in the water any deeper while we're already drowning, unless you want us to drown and then when we drown, we'll pull the county down with us because there won't be any money,” voiced one farmer.
Area homeowners and many farmers are weighing in and they are not happy with the idea of spending more property tax dollars on a project they think could cost less or be done away with.
A decision by the board was not yet made on this item.
