Public Hearing on a Proposed Amendment to the Redevelopment Plan for Waverly Area B to remove a parcel from the Redevelopment Area. Opened at 7:04 p.m. Matt Warner spoke about his proposed project and his request for Tax Increment Financing. He currently has 33 employees. Renters have already approached him regarding his new building. He also has commitments from teams/groups for the indoor batting facility. He asked that the Council approve his request for TIF. Brandon Koll spoke in favor of the project and stated it is good for Waverly. Closed at 7:08 p.m.

Public Hearing on a Proposed Redevelopment Plan for property commonly known as 14560 Woodstock Street. Opened at 7:09 p.m. No comments from public were heard. Mayor Werner explained the process. Closed at 7:11 p.m.


Bill Gerdes was disappointed in the Mayor in the way Mayor Werner handled a situation he brought to the Mayor’s attention. Bill was also concerned about the consideration and approval of an Independent Contractor Agreement with Hope Staten to perform certain services for the City of Waverly and its Emergency Services Department. He feels this person was handpicked. Another subject he was upset about concerned about was LB886. This act provides for a tax incentive to volunteer emergency responders. Bill felt that he had qualified for two years, but did not receive the tax benefit due to the State not having two years of information to award the benefit.

Brandon Koll wants to make an official request that the CDA have appointed members rather than Council Members or Mayor. There should be members within the community as well as one or two members outside the City limits.

Myron Gerlach read in the paper about the change in golf car rules. He would like to be able to use his before sunrise and after sunset because his has all of the lights, horns and flags as required. He thought there was something about changing the rules again. He was questioning after adding all the items requested like lights, why not use them. He followed what the requirements, so why not use this after dark? He feels we are over regulated. He was informed the City of Waverly is following State Statues mandate that golf cars cannot be used after dark.
