Weekly Roundup — Dec. 10

Seward’s week is starting with snow and a city council meeting and ending with a jam-packed weekend of events!

The Dec. 10 council meeting starts at 7 p.m. in the City Council chambers. The agenda includes a resolution to approve temporary hires in the police department, a lawsuit settlement and a slew of legislative priorities for 2019.

On Tuesday, the council will hold a special meeting at 9 a.m. to discuss amending the 2018 budget to show mid-cycle budget adjustments. The resolution would amend the 2018 budget, eliminate one custodial position and create a mechanic/operator position in the city. This would increase the 2018 General Fund balance by about $22,000.

Dying to be a Millionaire

Seward High School Drama presents ‘Who’s Dying to be a Millionaire’ in the Seward High School theatre on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday night. The play starts at 7 p.m. each night. Tickets are $7 per person or $20 per family.

Seward Civic Engagement

On Thursday, Seward Civic Engagement will meet from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room of the Seward Community Library to review past and future City Council meetings and discuss the budget process. Attendees are urged to bring their laptop to follow along on the city’s website. 

Jam-packed weekend

Seward’s weekend calendar is full of a wide array of events, starting on Friday with “Bringing LGBTQ + Supporters Together.”
