LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A government body formed to oversee a massive flood control project in Lincoln has held its last meeting.

The Joint Antelope Valley Authority monitored the spending of $246 million in federal, state and local tax money on flood control, a new street system, bike trails and parks and other improvements.

The project took 400 acres of land out of the flood plain and opened up the area on the eastern edge of downtown for more development.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/29XQKI3 ) that its three members signed papers to dissolve it Thursday.
