INITIATIVES from page 1
Association also sent out mailings against the
initiatives, he said.
Moody said he thought tax dollars might
have gone to finance some campaign flyers op
posing the initiatives, which could have been
illegally enclosed with paychecks to employees.
But these charges are false and unfounded,
said officials from the Chamber of Commerce
and Alumni Association,
x Kelvin Hullet, governmental affairs coordi
nator for the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce,
said the chamber is not funded by tax dollars
and did not send literature opposing the initia
tives to employees.
The chamber sent letters to businesses who
are members, Hullet said, but the letters were
meant to educate businesses of the chamber’s
official stance against the measures.
All expenditures on efforts to oppose the
initiatives has been repeated to the proper elec
tion officials, he said.
“Everything we have done has been above
the-board,” Hullet said. “We don’t have anything
to hide.”
Michael Mulnix, interim president of the
UNL Alumni Association, said the association
did nothing unethical regarding the initiatives.
The association sent a mailing to its mem
bers that told them the initiatives were impor
tant to higher education, and included the offi
cial statement of Nebraska college and univer
sity presidents who oppose the initiatives,
Mulnixsaid.
Neither the association nor the University
Foundation, which paid for the mailings, accepts
government funding, he said.
“When it comes to something we think will
impact higher education, we try to get informa
tion to our members,” he said.
But the association took no official stance
on the initiatives, he said.
Dale Wolfgram, assistant payroll manager
for UNL, said university employees have not
received any mailings regarding 411 ar412 with
their paychecks.
But Moody said any illegal coercion of em
ployees, if found, would be turned over to the
county attorney.
Moody called the alumni association mail
ings “totally inappropriate” and said he thought
the mailings would backfire.
Opponents, such as those affiliated with
higher education, are working hard to defeat the
initiatives, he said.
“They know we’re going to win, so they’re
going all-out these last few days,” Moody said.
“It shows how desperate they are.”
snowy streets mean parking bans
By Stacey Range
Staff Reporter
Winter snowstorms can quickly turn UNL’s
parking situation from bad to worse.
When snow piles up on Lincoln’s streets, the
city can declare snow emergencies and parking
bans for university and surrounding streets. For
students, this means less parking on campus and
at home. It also could mean a hefty fine or tow
ing fee if cars are not moved from the restricted
streets.
Students are at a disadvantage when it comes
to being notified of snow emergencies, said Bill
Nass, city maintenance coordinator.
“A lot of students are out of town on the
weekends and some only visit their apartments
long enough to sleep and then they are gone
again,” Nass said. “So they don’t have the abil
ity to read the newspapers or hear about the
bans.”
Parking bans on campus streets go into ef
fect during the second and third phases of the
city snow plan. The first phase is completed
when all major streets have been sanded and
salted. The second phase includes plowing snow
_
from all major emergency routes such as streets
leading to hospitals and major arteries to die city.
During the second phase, parking is banned on
all streets posted as emergency snow routes.
The third phase of the city snow plan includes
plowing all other arterial streets and bus routes,
including city-owned streets on the UNL cam
pus. During the third phase, the parking ban is
applied on either the even or odd numbered side
of the streets. When the snow is cleared from
one side of the street, it will be cleared from the
other on the following day. The fine for parking
(m these streets is $40.
Residential parking bans go into effect dur
ing the fourth phase when an odd-even parking
ban is issued for high-density areas or a total
parking ban is issued for other areas of the city.
The fine for parking in residential areas is $25.
All parking bans are removed once streets are
clearedjafsnow. - jfi *^5^1
Most university and surrounding residential
streets are on the odd-even parking-ban plan
because they are high-density areas, which al
ready don’t have enough parking, Nass said.
“When a student sees a spot they take it and
when there’s a parking ban,” Nass said, “they’re
still going to take it no matter what side of the
street it is.”
On this day students, faculty, and staff volunteers wf work together
on campus wide service projects. United, we can make our campus
community a better placel
