Grand Island, NE-- Grand Island Mayor Jay Vavricek met with his advisory board Monday evening to discuss updates on plans for the Veterans Home.
Mayor Vavricek met with a dozen Grand Island residents, including veterans, and spoke for over 45 minutes regarding the Veterans Home.
The discussion began with how to fight the move with several veterans saying they didn't have a say in the move and one man saying it will lead to violence.
However as discussion continued, the talks moved to where to go forward if Grand Island loses the Home.
The number one concern on that front was what will happen with the land? Will Grand Island keep it and use the home as its own Veterans home?
Another discussion was whether any Governor candidates have voiced an opinion on the Veterans home move.
The mayor said Monday's discussion was a great step forward in what locals would like to see.
He went on to say the next step is to continue to listen to Grand Island residents on what they would like to do as the choices moving forward are not simple.
Mayor Vavricek also added, in regards to the Governor's recent message that Grand island should accept the move, he respects the governor and his recommendation, but recommendations can be disagreed with.
