Western Nebraska Observer - Observations all along the line - Kimball & the Southern Panhandle First

Utility savings reported at Event Center


Significant utility savings were reported since the City of Kimball had an energy audit preformed at the Kimball Event Center, according to the City of Kimball’s Project Coordinator Amy Sapp during her report to the Kimball Board of Public Works on Tuesday, May 2.

Sapp, along with City Council member Christy Warner, also reported on the past events held at the venue as well as events planned in the near future.

As the city continues to operate the local event center small improvements continue to be made, but the eventual hope remains that the property can be sold to a buyer interested in opening it as a community center.

Keep Kimball Beautiful also reported to the board that they will be distributing 20 more white totes sometime this month, adding to the 20 they already have out. KKB manager Spud Rowley added that he hopes to have 40 more by July. The totes are distributed to local businesses for the collection of recyclable office pack.

According to Rowley, during the month of March, the facility recorded 198 volunteer hours- an amount equal to approximately $4,000 of services. It was also reported that 28,91 cubic yards of recyclable waste has been collected with in the last two months.
