Fire & Rescue Volunteers Needed

Everyone needs to be aware of the changes that are happening to local fire and rescue departments and how this will effect us all. There are fewer volunteers coming forward and some of the current members are getting close to retiring.  We are used to having fire and rescue right here and able to respond quickly. If we lose our departments locally that will change things dramatically. We really need people to step up and volunteer. Please contact Joe Moller at 402-799-2385 to get more information about volunteering.

Storm Siren

When a funnel cloud is spotted the siren is sounded and will continue to sound until the threat is gone. As soon as a funnel cloud touches down it is then a tornado. When the threat passes the sirens will quit going off. There is no all clear signal sounded.

Douglas Alumni Cups

A big thanks to Leonard and Tracy Hernandez who donated cups that have a picture of the High School on one side and our Eagle mascot on the other side. I have them at the Village Office so stop in and get one.

DNA Changes

DNA is dropping their fundraisers for awhile and just concentrating on Easter and Christmas activities for the kids. They will still do some activities around town like planting flowers in the barrels and keeping the park flowers cleaned up. If anyone has any comments about this please let us know.

Homestead Act

Douglas has recently implemented its own version of the Homestead Act. This act was created to encourage new housing and to provide a safe, quiet, and peaceful place to live at an affordable cost.  If you are wishing to move out of the city but remain close enough to commute into Lincoln, Omaha, or surrounding towns, you may want to inquire about our Homestead Act.  Douglas is located 25 minutes from Lincoln and approximately an hour from Omaha. 

Douglas sign

We will be finishing up the landscaping around the sign soon.

Please take pride in your community

Make Douglas an even better place to live.  Keep your dogs on a leash or inside a fence at all times.  Keep your house and yard looking nice.  Please no trash, or junk cars in front of your house.  We are trying hard to clean up around town and make it inviting to people looking for a small, safe town close to work.  Thank you for your efforts and cooperation.  I
