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.

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.

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