i Page A3 Fremont Tribune Tuesday, Jan. 29, 1991 Council to reconsider request for rail spurs r I Eveland: Spurs needed to store museum cars BY DRU FRYKBERG Staff Writer A national railway historial societys request to build two railroad spurs to store train car and load passengers will be reconsidered by the Fremont City Council Wednesday. No residents living near 1835 N. Somers Ave., the site of the proposed spurs, attended a public hearing 'Saturday. The hearing was scheduled to get public input on the proposal by the Eastern Nebraska Chapter .of National Railway Historical Society. It points to me, hopefully, that weve been a good neighbor and the neighborhood is not concerned about what weve been needing to do to survive, said Bruce Eveland, manager of the Fremont & Elkhom Valley Railroad. Eveland said two spurs are needed to store museum train Man pleads guilty to drug possession BY DEREK UPSON Staff Writer A 24-year-old Fremont man, who admitted violating his probation and who pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine, faces up to 10 years in prison andor a $20,000 fine. Kent Hartung, 1820 E. 19th St., on Monday admitted allegations he violated four terms of his Dodge County District Court probation. Hartung had been placed on probation for three years after pleading guilty to a Class IV felony theft charge in 1988. He also pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine, a Class IV felony charge stemming from a Dec. 1 incident. That incident also led to the revocation of his probation. The motion alleged that Hartung was arrested on Dec. 1 for drunken driving, possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia. Additional terms of the probation included not using alcohol or drugs, obtaining a high school diploma or GED and completion of a chemical education class. Tests taken by police after Hartungs arrest on Dec. 1 indicated alcohol, cocaine and marijuana were present in his system, officials said. District Judge Mark Fuhrman ordered a presentence investigation and scheduled sentencing for Feb. 25. On the possession of cocaine charges, sentencing is also set for Feb. 25. On each of the Class IV DISTRICT COURT felony charges, Hartung faces up to 5 years in jail andor a $10,000 fine. Also Monday, Fuhrman accepted a guilty plea from an Arlington man charged with the theft of a 1978 Pontiac Firebird. Gary Townsend, 18, allegedly duplicated the keys to the vehicle during a test drive and stole the vehicle on Dec. 4. Townsend and two missing juveniles appeared later in Los Angeles. The two juveniles, ages 15 and 16 of Omaha and Arlington, turned themselves in to the Los Angeles County Sheriffs office and Fremont authorities were contacted on Dec. 7, Fre-Police Department Dete-Sgt.

The Council recently took action restricting the National Railway Historical Society to one spur to be used solely for loading Fremont Dinner Train customers. There was some concern that old, unsightly train cars would be stored on the second spur, said Fremont City Administrator Jack Sutton, explaining why the council approved only one spur. The Council will meet in study session at 6 p.m., Wednesday at Marions Villa, 330 W. 23rd St., and in regular session at 7:15 p.m. in the council chambers at City Hall, 725 N. Park Ave. In other matters: The Council will vote following the first reading of an amendment to expand a zoning ordinance. The amendment would allow if approved by the Council-, highway commercial districts to expand to house facilities used as light assembly, packaging and storage, and administrative-, and executive offices. The amendment must be ap proved three times before taking effect. The Council will meet as the Board of Equalization to approve assessments for a $6,524 sewer extension project located near 14th and Pebble streets. The project, which was completed last summer, serves three lot owners, one being the city of Fremont. Committee members will also be appointed to select a consultant for the airport expansion project. Plans are to extend the airports runway by crossing U.S. 30. Because federal funds are involved, the city must select a consultant, Sutton said. Also, the Council will approve specifications and grant permission to advertise for the following bids: a one-half ton pickup for the Street Department estimated to cost about $10,500; a street sweeper for the Street Department estimated to cost about $85,000; and a high-pressure respiratory air compressor for the Fire Department - estimated to cost about $13,000. o rt f , f, 0 v A o a n C - ri , j i t - t i , , ' jr- mont ctive said.
