Gretna City Council Meeting @ Gretna City Hall Tickets
Aug 4 @ 6:30 pm
Gretna City Council Meeting @ Gretna City Hall | Gretna | Nebraska | United States

Meetings

  • 6:30 p.m.
  • 1st & 3rd Tuesday of each month
  • Gretna City Hall

City Council meetings are a time for the governing body to vote on ordinances and resolutions and approve all other business of the city. Ordinances are like laws; they say what people can and cannot do in the city. Resolutions are statements of policy; they say what the city plans to do about something.

Accommodations

Persons requiring any accommodation (i.e., qualified interpreter, hearing assistance, etc.) in order to attend a council meeting should call at 402-332-3336, ext. 210 no later than 48 hours prior to the scheduled commencement of the meeting.

Addressing the Council

Citizens may address the council concerning the agenda on items that fall under public hearing or current business if recognized by the mayor. Please review our Citizen Testimony Tips on addressing the City Council in a public forum.
If you have a specific topic that you would like to propose that the City Council possibly consider at a future meeting, please contact City Hall for documentation.  These requests are not automatically included on the agenda for the next City Council meeting or any future City Council meeting.  Instead, these requests are reviewed by City staff and City Staff may take appropriate action with regard to a request.  If your request is determined to be appropriate for consideration at a future City Council meeting, then you will be notified.

Agendas & Minutes
The City Council agenda is constructed and made available to the public in the Office of the City Clerk on the Friday before the day of the meeting. Items are generally placed on the agenda in the order in which they are received. Any person may request to be placed on the agenda to discuss a topic of concern by contacting the City Clerk via written request at P.O. Box 69. The agenda is closed to new additions on the Thursday before the meeting.

Members
The four members of the City Council are elected on a nonpartisan basis from two wards and serve a staggered four-year term.  The City Council is the legislative division of the city government, and performs such duties and powers, which have or may be conferred upon the city by the constitution and laws of the State of Nebraska.

About the Council
The City Council is responsible for maintaining the peace, regulating business, protecting the public health and safety, and assessing such taxes and fees as are necessary and appropriate in the exercise of these functions. The council:

  • Enacts the city’s annual budget
  • Sets fiscal policies
  • Approves all spending whether for operations (i.e. salaries) or capital items such as major equipment purchases, street repairs, or other public improvements.
  • Regulates land use, including the creation and amendment of zoning laws

Legislation & Requests

While most of the proposed laws which come before council are referred by the administration, council may also initiate legislation itself. Council members also respond annually to many constituent requests, filling a crucial oversight role in the delivery of basic city services to the public.

Reading the Rocks Geology Event @ Schramm Education Center Tickets
Aug 8 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
Reading the Rocks Geology Event @ Schramm Education Center

*** This event has been postponed to August 8, 2020. This is due to Schramm Education Center being temporarily closed to the public through May 31, 2020. Thank you for your understanding at this time. ***

For more information about Schramm Education Center’s closing, visit Nebraska Game & Parks press release here:

Just as we read a book to pursue knowledge and entertain ourselves with adventures and stories, we can read the layers of rock in the Earth. Layers of rock can teach us about geological events that shape our planet, climate trends and organisms that lived long before humans. Join us anytime for this FREE family event between 10am and 2pm at Schramm Park State Recreation Area’s Geological Display. Experts in the field will guide guests on a journey through 300 million years of history at the outcrop.

E. Frank Schramm, Professor Emeritus of Geology at the University of Nebraska Lincoln, donated Schramm State Park in 1967. Professor Schramm recognized the outcrop’s value as a cultural resource for geological education. The site offers a rare opportunity for the public to view earth’s layers and search for fossils. This event is just one way in which we can continue his legacy of teaching people about the importance of this space, thanks to the support of our partners: UNL, USDA and Nebraska Master Naturalists.

The event at the outcrop is free to the public. Vehicles entering the park require a State Park Entry Permit. Purchase a permit at the kiosk as you enter the park or at the front desk of Schramm Education Center, which is open from 9am to 5pm daily. Admission fees do apply to the center. In case of inclement weather, activities will be in the classroom of the education center.
