On April 7, 2021, Gibbon will begin celebrating the 150th anniversary of its founding. A committee has been formed to assist in the planning for this celebration. The next meeting will be held via Zoom on December 2nd at 7:00 p.m. Please contact City Hall for the link to attend. Anyone interested in volunteering to assist with the celebration should contact the Mayor at email@example.com or plan to attend the meeting. The goal is to have a good cross-section of citizens and community organizations involved on this committee.
Council Accepts City Administrator Resignation
The Gibbon City Council accepted the resignation of City Administrator Chris Rector, effective December 25, at a special meeting held on November 19. Rector has accepted a position with the City of Holdrege. The City of Gibbon has benefited from his 20 year tenure, and the mayor and council wish him the best in his new endeavor. A search to fill the upcoming vacant position will begin immediately.
Fire Hall / City Hall
Thank you, Gibbon! The fire hall/city hall/community center project was approved by voters at the general election held on November 3rd. A half-percent increase in the sales tax rate was also approved to help fund the project. The sales tax increase will go into effect on April 1, 2021. We will continue to provide updates as we move forward.
