Five community members were recognized for three years of service on the LincUP Community Advisory Panel Nov. 25 at a meeting at North Platte Community College. LincUP stands for Lincoln County - UPRR Community Advisory Panel. It is a volunteer panel of community members and railroad representatives.
The panel meets monthly to discuss health, safety and environmental issues involving the railroad.
Members share concerns from community groups they represent and take information back to the larger community.

• Dan Mauk (North Platte Area Chamber and DEVCO) representing business
• Jessie Allen (North Platte Community College) representing the college
• Gene Tacey (retired NPPD) representing villages
