Sworn in as Omaha's 51st Mayor on June 10, 2013. Send me your ideas for a better, more vibrant city.
We are inspecting our levee & Missouri River Wastewater Treatment Plant around the clock using drone & visual surveillance. Our Public Works staff is again doing an amazing job to keep the plant safe & operational. Plant is south of Veterans Memorial Bridge. Photos taken at 6pm
UPDATED SHELTER LOCATIONS - March 16th - 4:00 PM
Anyone who has been displaced from their home is urged to come to a shelter. Volunteers are on hand to provide a safe place to stay, a place to sleep, a hot meal and referrals to community services.

After reviewing aerial photos taken today, the Center Street bridge that washed out is at 240th Street, not Highway 275. Please plan ahead, and again for your safety, please don't drive around barricades or drive through water!
The Center Street bridge at Highway 275 washed out overnight, one of many roads closed in western Douglas County. It's very important to remind drivers not to drive around barricades. These roads are underwater and closed for your safety.
Reports that Omaha's drinking water has been compromised by flooding or is in short supply are not accurate. There is no threat to the drinking water supply as reported by MUD. Please help us get this important message out.
MUD is monitoring conditions on Missouri & Platte Rivers. Our facilities are operating normally & water continues to meet all State & federal standards. We will continue to closely monitor conditions. Full news release: https://bit.ly/2HnVsBJ #Omaha
