BURN SITE RULES AND REGULATIONS


The Murray Burn Site is set to open shortly and in light of our recent clean-up of the site, which was required by the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ), there are some new rules and regulations that all residents should be aware of. These will be strictly enforced.

1. The only items that may go onto the burn pile are tree limbs and untreated lumber. These are the only items that are burnable under our burn permit from the NDEQ.

2. All yard and garden waste will go in a separate pile at the site to be composted by an outside vendor.

3. No other materials of any kind shall be permitted.

4. The Burn Site will be open only on Saturday from 9-Noon.

The Site will be monitored by a camera 24 hours/day, 7 days a week. Any violation of the above rules will result in a first time fine of $150.00; any subsequent violations will be $300.00 per violation.

The Village Board appreciates your cooperation in this matter.

PLATTSMOUTH COMMUNITY SCHOOL DISTRICT RECEIVES GRANT

from DuPONT PIONEER and WILES AGRIBUSINESS LLC


Plattsmouth Community School District is pleased to announce that DuPont Pioneer has awarded the district with a $5,000 grant. In addition, local Pioneer sales agency Wiles Agribusiness LLC has matched the gift for a total donation of $10,000 to support the school's agriculture education programs.

Funding provided by Pioneer and Wiles Agribusiness LLC will support the high school greenhouse by purchasing soil, fertilizer, plants, soil testing equipment and other necessary supplies. Funds will also be used to equip the greenhouse with a wind generated power source. The support will also help to build elevated planting beds and a tiered garden at the middle school.

"Wiles Agribusiness LLC is excited to assist and fund the Plattsmouth School District Exploring Agriculture Education Programs," said Bruce Wiles. "Integrating agriculture into both the high school and middle school curriculum provides hands-on opportunities that will allow students to experience and be aware of future agricultural career opportunities, thus helping to grow the next generation of Nebraska agriculture leaders."

"The educators, students, parents, and community of Plattsmouth Community School District are very
thankful to DuPont Pioneer and Wiles Agribusiness LLC for this opportunity," indicated Cherie Larson with Plattsmouth Community Schools. "By creating a middle school garden, our students will have access to outdoor classrooms from preschool to high school. The funds will also provide supplies for the high school greenhouse. This greenhouse will support students as they learn about botany, as well as explore agi-business, wind energy, and community service opportunities."

Pioneer makes contributions to community-based organizations on behalf of the business and employees.  Consideration for outreach grants are given to communities where Pioneer representatives, employees and customers live and work and that support quality-of-life initiatives to create an improved, sustainable lifestyle for people worldwide.

DuPont Pioneer is the world's leading developer and supplier of advanced plant genetics, providing high- quality seeds to farmers in more than 90 countries.

Lunch will follow Plainsopoly and then we will head out on a bus tour of unique properties and communities within the Lower Platte River Corridor.  Stops will include a working farm in the floodplains and bluffs of the lower Platte River in Sarpy County to and then a stop at Plattsmouth, NE to visit with representatives of their Main Street Association and Historical Society. The event will conclude by 5:30 following some time for hors d’oeurves and time for participants to visit about the day’s events. 

Registration is available on-line at: https://lowerplatteorg.presencehost.net/what_we_do/events/lower_platte_summit.html I’ve also attached a registration form that can be completed and either mailed or emailed back to me.    More details about the Summit and the Lower Platte River Corridor Alliance can be found on the LPRCA website (lowerplatte.org).
