News Briefs:

Gov. Pete Ricketts was in Norfolk Thursday to help OCT Pipe break ground on its new $500-million, 1.2-million-square-foot plant northeast of Norfolk.  Other guest speakers included OCT Pipe owner and CEO Charley Havens and Nucor CEO John Ferriola. Mayor Sue Fuchtman, Norfolk Nucor General Manager Dirk Petersen and Sen. Jim Smith of Papillion.  OCT manufactures pipe for oil and natural gas wells, will employ approximately 300 workers at its Norfolk plant which will generate a payroll of $25-million a year.  

No vote was taken Thursday night on a proposal by the Lower Elkhorn Natural Resources District to further study one or two sites for proposed reservoirs. Director Mike Krueger of Pierce commented that the majority of the crowd opposed any reservoir project. Director Joel Hansen of Wayne reminded fellow board members that this decision could affect the future of the so-called “1050” area where surface and groundwater are interconnected, and then these same people would be back asking why the board had not been proactive in dealing with the situation. 

The Norfolk Public Schools Board of Education has hired a contractor to run the district’s school-lunch program. At its meeting Thursday, board members voted unanimously to agree to a contract with Lunch Time Solutions of North Sioux City, S.D.  Associate Superintendent of Business Services, Bill Robinson recommended board members approve a one-year contract with the company that’s renewable up to five years. Current employees in the district’s school-lunch program would become employees of Lunch Time Solutions effective July 1.
