Spring Clean-up has been scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, May 5-6, from 8:00 am - 6:00 pm, at the east end of Main Street past the railroad tracks. Plattsmouth residents may drop off items free of charge, but non-residents and trucks greater than one ton are required to pay a fee in cash. Senior and disabled citizens who are unable to transport their items may call 402-296-2522 before Friday, May 4, to arrange for pickup on Friday morning. Full details regarding what items are accepted and fees for non-residents can be found on the clean-up flyer.

The Plattsmouth Department of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) recently purchased three defibrillators to replace the older units which were becoming obsolete. The newer Philips units were purchased surplus from the Department of Defense at a very good price. They have upgraded technology which allows the paramedic to see a 3-D “view” of the heart in real time and allows transmittal of that view to the emergency room before the squad leaves a residence. Michael Wood, Director of EMS, said "This is especially impactful for heart attack victims as it greatly reduces the time it takes to fully diagnose a heart attack and prepare the cardiac catheterization lab. In simple terms, the faster we can diagnose and the faster the hospital can prepare their interventions and treatments, the higher the survivability rate. This is a very good thing for the Plattsmouth community."

As a Certified Local Government (CLG), the City of Plattsmouth partners with the National Park Service (NPS) and the Nebraska State Historic Preservation Office (NeSHPO), a division of the Nebraska State Historical Society (NSHS), to oversee preservation efforts in Plattsmouth, Nebraska.

Historic Survey

The Plattsmouth CLG has set a goal of completing an Intensive Level Survey of the town as part of a long range plan to better understand their local resources. Divided into phases that cover different areas of the town, this project will review and recommend local buildings for potential listing on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). After further consultation with the NeSHPO, these buildings could then be listed and owners could take advantage of a number of tax incentive programs. Additionally, this information could be used by the City to promote its heritage.

Radon is a radioactive gas that can build up in homes and cause lung cancer. To determine if your home is at risk, Sarpy/Cass Department of Health & Wellness has provided free radon testing kits to City Hall for distribution.

Indoor radon levels depend upon the concentration of radon in the soil, the number of available paths into the building, and the strength of forces drawing radon into the building. Levels can vary greatly in the same town, on the same street, and from house to house.

Prolonged exposure to high levels of radon can lead to lung cancer – radon’s only known health effect. Radon is considered to be the leading cause of lung cancer among nonsmokers. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that radon causes about 14,000 deaths per year in the United States.

Ask for a free radon testing kit from City Hall while supplies last.
