Chadron Mayor Says State Of City Is Strong



    Chadron Mayor Mark Werner delivered the annual State of the City address at last night’s city council meeting, declaring that the city is “doing well.”

     It wasn’t a formal speech and Werner, officially the council president, says it was never intended to be a speech. 

      He says it was always planned as a way to look at Chadron’s progress over the last year in a variety of areas and explore what may lie ahead.

Werner focused on 5 areas drawn from the city’s decade-old comprehensive plan: downtown revitalizations, having vibrant neighborhoods, a diversified economy, city finances, and having a special sense of place. 

     Werner said good progress has been made on all 5, but with plenty of work remaining – more in some areas than others.
