BROKEN BOW, Neb. (AP) - Broken Bow voters will decide this fall whether to change the form of their city’s government.
Signatures on a petition calling for a change have been confirmed, and the measure will go on the Nov. 4 ballot.
A booming economy in Broken Bow prompted calls for a city manager who would oversee the central Nebraska’s city’s development.
Many of the city’s current management duties are handled by the mayor, acting on advice from a city administrator. A city manager would have power to act on the city’s day-to-day business, like the CEO of a major business. The City Council would act as a board of directors, focused on a long-term vision.
