Main street celebration special request.
The council approved the street closing request of Hy-Vee for “Taste of Hy-Vee on Main” on Saturday, May 3. Main Street between 6th and 7th will be closed from 8am to 6pm. There was council discussion because the closing request came from a single business as opposed to the typical request which usually involves an organization or group of businesses.
The Cassgram reports “Are we setting a precedent?” asked Councilman Steve Riese. Charles Jones, director of the Plattsmouth Main Association, said he understood there could be some concern since this was from only one business but said he’s encouraging other business owners to have their own plans in place for May 3 so they all can benefit from the increased number of visitors downtown.
