MILFORD, Neb. (AP) Residents of a small Nebraska town about 15 miles west of Lincoln are dreaming about how to use $6.85 million an anonymous donor left them.

Milford recently learned of the donations to nine groups in town, including the school district, nine-hole golf course and city.

Mayor Dean Bruha says he feels like the town won the lottery. Bruha says the donations will allow the city to some tackle projects it had only dreamed of before.

The donation to the city is supposed to be used for enhancements, not tax relief. All the donations are supposed to be used to create endowments.

Bruha says the city is looking at building a recreational trail, repairing curbs and streets, improving handicapped access or adding infrastructure for housing.
