The R-C Morning Report

by Kurt Hildebrand

County commissioners will be discussing advertising for qualifications and proposals to design and build the Douglas County Community & Senior Center, to be located across Waterloo Lane from Lampe Park. Under the design-build concept, each bidder must present plans and a price tag. The winning bidder will get to build the center, everyone else gets $30,000 for the work they put into their design. Commissioners will also be conducting County Manager Steve Mokrohisky’s evaluation. Commissioners meet starting at 1 p.m. at the Douglas County Administrative Building, 1616 8th St.

Commissioners won’t quite be done when the town of Minden meets at 5:30 p.m. Town board members will be discussing the rental policy for the CVIC Hall and the town’s sponsorship of the Minden Arts & Crafts Show. The discussion includes moving the show to Sept. 8-9. The town board will also be talking about the town’s 2012 street rehab project. Minden meets at the CVIC Hall on Esmeralda Avenue.

We’ll get a little of Mother Nature’s air conditioning today, with a high temperature forecast at 85 degrees, when the wind picks up to 10-15 mph this afternoon. We’ll have gusts of up to 25 mph tonight. Starting Friday, the high temperatures head for the 90s and won’t look back for a while.
