Street department releases 6 year plan|
The City of Hastings Street Department presented their 6 year plan to the Council Monday night. The 6 year plan is a list of resurfacing, paving and widening projects in order of which streets need the most work. Dave Wacker with the Hastings Street department says there have been continued challenges with construction costs and they are also on the verge of federal funds drying up in 2016. Wacker says the City of Hastings will continue to look at all the options available for funding. Wacker says the weather has played a factor too, when you have the vast temperature changes South Central Nebraska has experienced the focus shifts to streets that took the hardest hits from the winter.
