Loda president won't be liquor commissioner

LODA — Newly elected village board President Ron Dudley's first official action this week was to recuse himself from being the village's liquor commissioner, a position the president typically holds.

Dudley, who is also the commander of the Loda American Legion post, said that could be a conflict of interest. So, the board voted to appoint former board President Carol Arseneau, who was elected as a trustee in April, as liquor commissioner because she has the necessary experience.

The board then approved the Legion's request for a temporary liquor license for various hours of July 26-28 for the annual Loda Good Ole Days celebration. Good Ole Days will be celebrated part of the time in the village park and part of the time at a large pole building in the west part of town.

The board also approved the Good Ole Days Committee's plan to provide a fireworks show on Saturday, July 27, as long as the necessary permits are secured. DCV Imports of Lincoln will provide the fireworks show for $2,500. DVC also provides the annual July 4 fireworks at nearby Bayles Lake.
