*  Message from the Mayor  *

Residents of Grand Island:

People are asking me for locations in the city where coronavirus may be present.  On March 28, 2020, the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services determined that we have confirmed cases of community spread of coronavirus in the city.  This means that we must assume that coronavirus is everywhere.  Please take extra precautions using this assumption.   Please keep at least 6 feet of space between you and other people, wash your hands regularly, and do not touch your face. 

Mayor Roger G. Steele

What should I do with paint?

Paint, in liquid form, is not allowed in our solid waste facilities. This is for the protection of groundwater, due to the leaching problems consistent with liquids. Once paint is dried out, however, we can accept it as normal refuse. Citizens can remove lids from paint cans to dry it out, or drizzle the paint on newspapers, scrap carpet, or old furniture they are going to dispose. Once the paint is dry, it can be placed in with the normal trash to go to the landfill or transfer station.
