NEBRASKA CITY – Nebraska City commissioners are hoping to finance a new ambulance through the EMS division of the state Department of Health and Human Services’s ARPA funds.

Paramedic Manager Andrew Snodgrass told commissioners Monday that the maximum award is $100,000 in the ambulance category. The city is also applying for $50,000 in the equipment category for two new LUCAS CPR devices.

Commissioners tabled an interlocal agreement to purchased $56,000 for dispatch equipment.

Mayor Bryan Bequette appointed Vaughn Hammond and Jeanna Stavas to the Citizens Advisory Review Committee, Kathy Davenport to the planning commission and Evan Wickersham as city street superintendent.

A parking stall will be eliminated near Fourth Street on Central Avenue near Knapp Time Day Care to accommodate loading and unloading of children.

The city amended a 1945 ordinance regarding bowling alleys to clarify the intent to tax. The city typically collects $135 a year from bowling alley operators.
