Citizens Advisory Committee


Sidney’s Economic Development Citizens Advisory Committee is looking for three new members.

The group of citizens provides input, feedback and direction to the City Council about business in Sidney.

“There needs to be five to 10 members, but we currently only have four active members,” Melissa Norgard, Sidney economic development director, said. “We are going to start advertising (this week) to fill the vacancies of the three spots that are not filled right now.”

Remaining board members include D.J. Garcia, Carol Porter, Rick Heckenlively, and Mike Leininger.

“When somebody applies for an LB-840 grant through our economic development plan, which is to create new jobs and build new business in town, this committee reviews the applications to say yes or no,” Norgard said.

Being on the advisory board allows the business community to provide the city with their expertise and knowledge regarding LB840 applicants, Norgard said.
