The Scottsbluff City Council Monday evening will consider a request by Regional West for the council to establish an ordinance allowing erection of speed limits signs on Rugger Drive and enforcement of the speed limit by Police during the West 42nd Street construction that began today.
Regional West is estimating traffic will increase on Rugger Drive, which circles the south and east side of the hospital, hiking the possibility of harm to patients,visitors, and staff.
The council will also conduct the City manager’s evaluation and consider an economic development grant application by American Doorstop Project Productions. A grant request of up to $25,000 would assist with the production of a documentary to commemorate Nebraska’s contributions to American horse racing, including trainer John Nerud, a native son of Minatare.
The agreement says the assistance would be based on “Qualified Local Expenditures” that have been incurred by the applicant with proper documentation and certification. Supporting letters have been submitted by 21st Century Equipment CEO Owen Palm and Kelley Bean CEO Kevin Kelley.
