The residents of Broken Bow and surrounding area now have access to a new mode of transportation - thanks to a generous donation from the Public Alliance for Community Energy.
ACE is distributing $4,333.04 to the City of Broken Bow as its share of $200,000 being distributed to the 69 Nebraska member communities of the not-for-profit, community-owned natural gas supplier. This year the City opted to use a large portion of those funds to help purchase a new bus, much larger than the van the City has been using. The new city bus went into use last week.
