“Looking for Beatrice Plus Advisory Board Applicants”


The Beatrice Plus program is an exciting extension of our commitment to the citizens of Beatrice. The Beatrice Plus program is a voluntary program in which Beatrice Board of Public Works customers can round their utility bill up to the nearest dollar and donate additional money to Beatrice Plus.


Mayor Wirth is currently looking for applicants to fill two (2) open seats on the Beatrice Plus Advisory Board. One (1) open seat shall be filled by a citizen in Ward 1 and the other open seat is for an at large member. The Beatrice Plus Advisory Board meets quarterly to review applications submitted for funding from Beatrice Plus and makes a recommendation to the Mayor and City Council regarding the applications.


This past year, Beatrice Plus funds helped pay for new boulevard banners incorporating the new “Stake Your Claim” slogan, installation of public parking signs in the downtown district, and a Nature Explore classroom at St. Paul’s Lutheran School. The installation of two (2) soccer fields at Riverside Park will also be constructed with the help of the Beatrice Plus funding.


Beatrice Plus Advisory Board members are appointed by the Mayor with the approval of the City Council. Members of the Board serve at the will of the Mayor. Those interested in serving on the Board can submit an application. For more information, please contact Erin Saathoff, City Clerk, at (402) 228-5200.
