Fairfield Council to decide fate of old city office

BY RITA BREHL

Fairfield’s main street building with the iconic landscape mural painted on the south side is about to be posted for sale, but potential buyers beware that a purchase comes with stipulations.

The former City of Fairfield office, located at 401 D Street, has some issues—the least being a bad roof. But the last thing the Fairfield City Council wants to see happen is for the building to fall into further disrepair.

The City Council deliberated possible solutions at its monthly meeting on Nov. 12 in the city auditorium.

City superintendent Jim Moore opened the discussion with a report on the condition of the old city office building, explaining the condition of the roof and how that is further compromising an already deteriorated indoor environment.

Citizen Testimony: Proponents outnumber opposition for Medicaid expansion

By Rita Brhel

Eighteen people spoke in favor of Initiative 427, eight in opposition, and one as neutral, during the Oct. 30 Medicaid expansion meeting in Grand Island.

Many of those adding to the public record repeated the arguments made in the opening remarks, but a few testimonies stood out:

For: “She doesn’t have insurance, because she can’t afford insurance at all”

Proponents Robin Vodehnal identified her sister as one of the potential beneficiaries of the Medicaid expansion. She described how her sister’s $800 monthly income is not enough to allow her to qualify for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act.
