Nibley council bumps heads over growth issues

NIBLEY – After a prayer, Nibley City Council convened for city business that will determine the future look and feel of the community. A continuing struggle was wrought throughout the meeting over land and money use for the rapidly expanding city. Preliminary plans to construct a new city hall began the evening, with a parameters resolution authorizing up to $850,000 in lease revenue bonds to be sold for the purpose of construction. The resolution passed 3-2, with dissenting votes from councilmen Scott Larsen and Shawn Dustin. “I just don’t think that a new city hall is the best expenditure that could be made for the city,” Larsen said. Renderings were presented for the exterior of the new building, and with a few aesthetic suggestions Councilman Thayne Mickelson said, “I think we are headed in a great direction with this project”. With the current renovations being completed in downtown Logan, especially in recent years to local government buildings, Nibley is weighing in on how much progressive change needs to take place in the rural community.
