The city of Kearney has set up an online site where community feedback can win rewards.
The new website called cultivate Kearney allows anyone to weigh in on what could make the city a better place to live and allows people to give the city feedback without having to attend city council meetings.
Members of government in Kearney will view the posts and results. They say it will make it easier for them to connect with people.
Every time someone posts on the website they will earn points. These points can turn into prizes.
The city will give away things like gift certificates, Tri-City Storm tickets, golf balls or swimming passes.
Kearney development services director Suzanne Brodine hopes the thoughts come from everyone in the community.
"Comprehensive planning process is incredibly important to the city, the way we spend money and way we go after development projects, it's really the foundation for everything we do, every voice we hear, every comment we get, it influences the way you are going to see your community grow," said Brodine.
