Monday night is the big night for the unveiling of the new city council chambers in Norfolk, Nebraska. The city council is set to meet Monday at 5:30 followed by a public open house to show off the newly renovated facility. 

Since June of 1992, the Norfolk City Council has held just under 500 meetings in what is known as the "Wells" building near 4th and Madison Avenue downtown.  Monday night, the council will move to its new chambers inside the new city offices a few blocks away on North 5th Street.  The city moved into the old Supertel Hospitality building last March and has since been working on renovating a large room to fit the council and the public. 

The new chambers resembles the old chambers, but will seat around 100, which is double the capacity.   When the council does convene Monday night, there are only a few items on the agenda, including proposals for new equipment purchases for the water pollution control plant and for the transfer station.  They will also be discussing city employee benefits. 

Following the meeting, the city will hold an open house to allow the public to stay and look over the new facility. 

In addition to the city council, the Norfolk Public School Board will also use the new chambers for its monthly meetings.  Its next meeting is set for next Monday.
