HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Hastings City Council met Monday night via Zoom to vote on some big changes coming to the city.

The city council approved a $435,000 Community Development Block Grant for sidewalk repair and to modify ADA ramps in the city.

They also awarded Farris Construction with a $385,000 contract to do renovations on Fischer Fountain. If all goes as expected, that construction is set to start in the beginning of February and be done by the Fourth of July.

Also on Monday night’s agenda was the 16th street viaduct. The city entered a $146,000 contract with Olsson Construction last year to demolish the structure. So far they’ve only paid out $25,000 to them and decided to back out of the rest of the contract. Monday night the group voted to start negotiations with Union Pacific Railroad to get prices and plans to move forward.
