Residents of Alliance,
City Council members understand that the COVID-19 Pandemic and the Directed Health Measure (DHM) issued by Governor Ricketts continue to impact our community. Panhandle Public Health District and Region 23 Emergency Management, along with the State of Nebraska serves as advisory organizations in charge of the pandemic response to protect our community’s health and safety.
To assist the public, City staff has compiled links to various resources at the state, local and federal levels specific to this emergency for the purpose of connecting people with available pandemic resources. Please visit www.cityofalliance.net to access these links.
In addition, City staff has taken measures to continue to serve our community including: expanded accommodations for customers who have difficulties paying their utility bills due to the COVID-19 emergency; deferral of payments and suspension of interest on Economic Development Loans for three months; grab-and-go books and videos from the library; grab-and-go meals for seniors from the Senior Center; as well as continuing to provide essential services.

Given the current events and projections, the Governor indicated that the State will probably not allow pools to open until late summer. Additionally, the City has received reports that groups larger than 10 people have been congregating in parks and outdoor recreational areas. If this activity continues the City may restrict access to public playgrounds, ball fields, and basketball courts.
Alliance’s greatest strength is its people. Therefore, we ask you to strictly follow the recommendations from Panhandle Public Health, the State of Nebraska and the Federal Government. This public emergency may last for a number of months, but once it’s over we look forward to working with you to rebuild and enjoy this amazing community. Alliance is strong, kind, generous and committed. We will get through this together!
