This letter was hand delivered to each council member. Mayor Peitz also shared with the council emails he had received from concerned local businesses who were carrying past due accounts of work done for TrailManor. These businesses inquired of the status of the TrailManor business being brought to Hartington. The council discussed the fact that TrailManor is past due on their loan payment to the city, concerns that no activity of equipment being set up at the Hartington plant which was to be brought here from Tennessee, that 15 – 20 jobs have not been created, and what was the $100,000.00 loan from LB840 funds to TrailManor used for?
