Gering council to consider accepting Berge resignation
The Gering city council Monday night will consider accepting the resignation of City Clerk Kerri Schase-Berge. Berge, who gave birth to a baby boy four weeks ago, her and her husband John's first child, told KNEB News she needs to spend time right now at home. John Berge, who is employed with USDA, has also taken on a new position that requires more traveling. Berge was hired in March of 2011 to replace long-time city clerk Rosie Russell.
The council will also discuss issues associated with the proposed demolishing of McKnley school in east Gering and replacing it with single family homes for low income qualified families and individuals. The city has applied a $470,00 grant from the Nebraska Department of Economic Development and the city of Gering will also invest over a quarter million dollars through a grant and loan for the project. Funds recaptured through sale of homes would be reused for construction of additional homes or homebuyer assistance.
The council will also consider requesting proposals to refurbish the liner for landfill cell #6 to meet state regulations. The engineer's estimate for the project is $800,000.
