Council approves abandoned sewer line agreement

Wednesday, November 23, 2022

McCOOK, Neb. — The McCook City Council approved the abandonment of a utility line agreement between the city and Siegfried Holdings LLC, for property located in Block 4, Armory Addition to the City of McCook.

The council approved the item with the rest of the consent agenda items with no discussion.

On August 1964, the City of McCook vacated an alley identified at Block 4, Armory Addition and Block 1, New High School Campus Addition to the City of McCook, according to the city’s manager report.

Recently, Block 4, Armory Addition to the City of McCook, was sold to Siegfried Holdings LLC. Following the sale, the city learned that there is an abandoned sewer main underneath the alley, going southwest through the Seigfried Holdings property. City staff believes the sewer line was vacated at the same time the city vacated the alley in 1964 and has recommended that an acknowledgment of the sewer line being vacated be cited in an agreement.

The city council Monday night was greeted with gifts baskets, given by the “City Employees Making a Difference” group. The baskets were given by city employees in appreciation for the council, City Manager Nate Schneider said. The group sponsors athletic teams and helps with community activities.
