Hallam Residents Discuss Rebuilding

Hallam residents gathered for a another community meeting Wednesday night. Residents meet on a regular basis to discuss their re-building process. Two weeks ago, there was strong opposition to the use of Lincoln's building-codes, which would mean about a $700 permit to construct an average home. But Wednesday night, the Village Board announced they have hired Mark Eckberg, a building-inspector from Beatrice instead. He will be doing the building inspections which will cost approximately $341 per house. Community meetings have been scheduled for every other Wednesday in Hallam.
