The City of Ainsworth will conduct a local survey beginning in June to collect accurate information representing our community’s needs. To accomplish our goals, we need your cooperation and ask that you take 5 minutes to complete the survey. It will be necessary to collect input from the public regarding: housing, family size, age, and income. Answering all of the questions will be to the benefit of our community as a whole, and the final results will be vital for planning future projects. A private firm will conduct the survey tabulation and present final results to the City at a public Council meeting. If you have any questions, please call the City of Ainsworth Administrator, Lisa Schroedl, at 402-387-2494. Please note, this survey is not related to the 2020 Census survey, but serves for local purposes only. Not all households received a survey, but residences were selected randomly. This technique is the simplest form to collect data from the total population. Instructions: 1) Fully complete the survey 2) Use the provided envelope to return the survey (envelope is pre-stamped) 3) Mail completed surveys ASAP (or drop off at the City Office)
The City of Ainsworth would like to remind residents and business owners that the height of weeds, grasses, and worthless vegetation shall not exceed Eight Inches (8”). It is also unlawful for any person to throw/cast/lay or drop on any public way or property any grass clippings/leaves and tree limbs in the City streets, gutters and/or alleys. Anyone observed doing so may be fined and prosecuted for littering in violation of the City of Ainsworth Municipal Code. Debris in the streets and gutters can cause blockage of storm drains, which in turn can cause flooding during a rain event. This can negatively impact homes, businesses and infrastructure. Please help us keep our waterways free of debris and our town clean and tidy. Thank you for your attention and understanding!
The City of Ainsworth strongly encourages parents to please use caution at City parks as City staff are not able to lock down the play structures and other open spaces. City staff also are not able to completely disinfect open equipment on a continual basis during this COVID-19 pandemic. The City encourages residents to continue to practice social distancing to curb the spread of the virus. If a child happens to use the playground equipment, please follow the CDC recommendations of proper hand washing and hygiene. Stay safe and healthy.
In an effort to minimize exposure of City personnel to COVID-19, the garbage truck will only pick up bagged household trash. Thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions, please call the city office at 402-387-2494.
