USDA Rural Development State Director Maxine Moul today presented a plaque to both City Clerk Diane Rosenfelt and Deputy Clerk Stacy Nichols for their excellence in performance for Benkelman, Nebraska. 

“I am honored to recognize both Diane and Stacy for the outstanding work they did in bringing the City’s water project to fruition.  Your efforts went beyond just the water project as you took care of the Benkelman residents while the project was being completed.  Thank you Diane and Stacy for your dedicated service,” said Moul.

“The North Platte Nebraska Area USDA staff nominated Diane and Stacy for the award as they were instrumental in the City’s water project that took a significant amount of years to bring to a successful completion. During the water project they provided many notices and bottled water to the citizens.  They were diligent in their efforts to keep everything running smoothly and they made sure nothing fell through the cracks,” said Community Program Specialist Natalie Furrow.  “Diane and Stacy were always responsive to requests and happy to provide anything asked from them.  They both have been a pleasure to work with over the years.”
