Former alderman given key to Kearney

Former Kearney Alderman Marie Steiner was presented a key to the city and thanked this spring for her years of service by Mayor Randy Pogue and the current Board of Aldermen. Steiner fulfilled multiple roles and helped the city complete a variety of projects during her years of service as a city leader. Her accomplishments include: serving three terms as an alderman; on the Mid-America Regional Council Solid Waste Management Board for six years, most recently as president; and on the Kearney recycling committee, being responsible for helping secure voter approval for curbside recycling implemented the city in 2012. During his message of thanks and presentation of a commendation to Steiner, Pogue said Steiner “set a standard for successive members to follow that we very much appreciate.” Other community service accomplishments under Steiner’s belt include: committee chair of the Communities for All Ages Program; and helped secure funding for the electronics recycling container, for community sidewalks, the Clear Creek pedestrian bridge project and recycling informational campaigns. Seen here are Alderman Dan Holt, Pogue and Steiner.
