A few things to know from the March 27 Council Meeting

The red square represents the intersection where a three-way stop will soon be put in, if the City Council approves two more readings of a new ordinance.

(See last bullet point.)


  • A group of emergency responders were present to do a photo with Nevada resident Jerry Gibson and his family. The responders helped save Gibson’s life on Feb. 22. See this full story on the City website under our “Stay In The Know” news reel on the home page.
  • Councilman Steve Skaggs commented about the great turnout – over 50 volunteers – for this past Saturday’s cleaning out of the Camelot Theater. Skaggs said it was great collaboration with a variety of volunteers from various organizations and of varying ages. “We got rid of three giant dumpsters of trash,” he noted of the things carried out of the basement areas and other areas of the historic theater which will be going through a major renovation in the near future.
  • Nevada Public Library Director Erin Coughlin said the library will be getting an AED (lifesaving device) from the Iowa Heart Foundation. Coughlin also noted that new Story Walk posts will be going up around the trail’s loop at the west edge of town thanks to a Story County Community Grant to fund the project. She shared that Story Walks were the original idea of a Vermont librarian who wanted to engage kids in learning and movement. Coughlin said her library team plans to change out content on the posts every six weeks or so during the warmer months, and will likely have variety of content from kids’ stories to history.
  • The City Council passed the first reading of an ordinance to erect a three-way stop at the corner of 11th Street and H Avenue (the east intersection of the roads next to the Evergreen Lane property).
