Engineering Group Weighs In On City Council Action

The Nebraska Chapter of the American Council of Engineering Companies is backing a city engineer's position against a city council approved school crossing proposal for 84th and Leighton.

ACEC/Nebraska says that the city council may be in direct violation of state law by mandating an engineering decision in direct conflict with the recommendation of the City Traffic Engineering Manager.

ACEC/Nebraska also opposes the suggestion from Councilwoman Cindi Lamm that the city would simply find another professional engineer to sign off on the project.

The Mayor is expected to make a decision on a possible veto by August 16th.
