The City of Omaha recently honored the Empowerment Network, the Deer Park Neighborhood Association and neighborhood advocate Jeannie Dickes with Community Excellence Awards.
Mayor Suttle says the awards recognize the hard work these recipients have done in helping to improve the quality of life in Omaha’s older neighborhoods. He says over the past several years, the number of neighborhood associations and the projects they are taking on has grown substantially.
Douglas County’s new fiscal year budget is once again up for discussion Tuesday.
County Commissioners will discuss the budget at their 9am meeting Tuesday. Two weeks ago, Finance Committee members grilled county department heads on their budget requests for the coming fiscal year, which begins July 1.
The County Board asked all departments to present flat budgets, and justify any requests for additional funding.
County Commissioners are scheduled to vote on the 2012-13 budget later this month.
