Nebraska state and local officials are hosting a public forum to discuss the availability of storm shelters for mobile home park residents.
The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday at West Lincoln Elementary School in Lincoln. The meeting will include state Sen. Ken Haar of Malcolm, Lincoln City Councilman Carl Eskridge and Lincoln Emergency Management Director Doug Ahlberg.
Haar says the meeting was called after residents in his district raised concerns about where they could go during severe weather. Residents had previously been allowed to take shelter at a local Pfizer plant, but they can no longer do so because of liability concerns.
Haar introduced a bill this year to address the liability concerns, but his proposal stalled in committee.
