Four years into the process and plenty of planning to go with it and now the City of Papillion is one step closer to a new public work’s building.
An official ground breaking on the building Monday afternoon on the land, which sits off 96th and Portal Road. There the new 52,000-ft2 design will house three buildings on 20 acres. The mayor said the old building is outdated and far too small to meet current needs, especially during harsh Nebraska winters.
“The thing that woke us up to the importance of a garage is, during the blizzards, we've got pieces of equipment that do not fit in our garage and so our mechanics will be outside in a blizzard working on a piece of equipment just so residents can have clean streets,” Mayor David Black said. He also said the new facility should be completed around this time next year.
