Veterans Home to be pursued by Hastings|
Last night the Hastings City Council voted unanimously to pursue the proposal Mayor Vern Powers will present to obtain the Veterans Home. The Veterans Home is currently located in Grand Island but is in need of repair. Hastings is currently competing with Grand Island, Kearney and North Platte for the project. The Veterans Home would house about 225 vets and 400 employees. Mayor Vern Powers is confident that Hastings will present the best proposal that would be best for our veterans. The deadline to submit the proposal is in June.
