The cities of Grand Island, Hastings,
Holdrege, Kearney, Lexington, and North Platte have joined together to form a new organization called the Greater Nebraska Cities.
The organization will serve as a voice for the area in important issues such as legislative debates. The group plans to speak as a group by issuing joint statements on issues the whole group agrees on.
The member cities believe that joining together will result in a stronger and more cohesive voice for the area, as well as providing clearer, more productive communication with legislators.
The organization will also work to collaborate on how to most efficiently deliver services to the citizens of central Nebraska.
