City Passes New Wage Ordinance

September 16, 2010 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

Meeting on a rare Thursday night, the Elgin City Council disposed of a light agenda in little less than an hour.

On a unanimous vote, the council approved Ordinance No. 622 which will increase employee wages. According to Mayor Evans, the changes will reflect a 3.5 percent increase in wages for the city clerk, utilities superintendent, assistant maintenance and part-time police officer. In approving the ordinance the council voted to suspend the reading on the ordinance at three separate meetings.

Earlier in the meeting the Council held two public hearings. One was to hear comments on the proposed 2010-2011 city budget and the other to hear comments on the proposed levy. City Clerk Vicki Miller said no one offered comments on either the budget or the levy and they were subsequently approved during the meeting. 

The only person attending the meeting, aside from the council members and city officials was Tree Board member Mike Dvorak. Miller said Dvorak indicated that Steve Rasmussen with the Nebraska Forest Service will be in Elgin soon to do an inspection of the trees at thepark. After hearing Rasmussen’s assessment of the park, the board will then take that information into account before submitting the necessary paperwork for a tree grant.

Creighton Upends Wolfpack 32 to 14 in Football Season Opener

September 9, 2010 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

ELGIN — Down by just six points at halftime, Elgin Public-Pope John couldn’t contain the Creighton Bulldogs’ potent ground game in the second half and fell 32 to 14.

“Our team gave a great effort in the game,” Coach Carlie Wells said about the Wolfpack. “We learned some things about ourselves and the team. I feel confident that we can make the necessary steps to improve. I know our players and coaches will work hard this week to become a better team.”

It marked the first game for the Wolfpack while the Bulldogs were playing their second game and it showed at times..

Having switched from 11-man to 8-man football this year, Creighton brought back a wealth of experience and had a size advantage against the Wolfpack. That size advantage wore down Wolfpack defenders, particularly in the second half.
