Reach Out For Tomorrow

Water, water everywhere and possibly none of it to drink.
That is what Steele City, and many other communities are facing with an aging infrastructure and aging population.
As the infrastructure ages, repairs and maintenance must be done. However, with many residents in smaller rural communities on a fixed income, funds are hard to come by, therefore, repairs or upgrades are put off until the situation reaches crisis levels.
There is no shame in asking for help. This goes for people dealing with financial situations beyond their control and even villages. Asking for loan assistance, grant funds and the like are basic functions of being on a village and/or city board. The village board of Steele City, Fairbury, Endicott, Plymouth, Alexandria, Beatrice, Lincoln, Omaha, Oakland, Dallas, Philly, Houston, and everywhere in between, should be constantly looking for grants, loans and help to keep things like water systems viable.
