McCOOK, Nebraska -- The City of McCook Public Works Director, Kyle Potthoff, was elected to be the utilities representative on the League of Nebraska Municipalities Executive Board for a one year term. The league is a nonprofit service association that lobbies for the interests of its member cities and villages to the Nebraska legislature.
Potthoff will be part of the 15 member executive board that establishes the annual legislative package, compiled after reviewing recommendations from city legislative committees.
"I am excited to get the opportunity," Potthoff told the Gazette, adding that it would provide an opportunity for Southwest Nebraska to have representation on the executive board. Potthoff said the League of Nebraska Municipalities strives to have representation from as many different areas of the state as possible.
Potthoff anticipates the position to require three or four in-person meetings, in addition to conference calls being conducted as needed.
