BEATRICE – Gage Area Growth Enterprise is continuing an agreement with a firm that provides aerial drone video, to help in local economic development.
NGage Executive Director Walker Zulkoski says Digital Sky does the drone video, and the local economic development is partnering with others on paying for the service, including Main Street Beatrice.

Also a major partner on the drone agreement is Gage County Tourism, through grant funding supplied by a portion of the county lodging tax. The drone footage this coming year, Zulkoski says, will focus on Beatrice and other communities in the county and events throughout the area.
During an NGage Board meeting on Thursday, it was noted that an extended stay hotel project will go before the Beatrice City Council at their August 6th meeting. The project is applying to use tax increment financing to assist in the development.
Beatrice will be hosting the Connecting Entrepreneurial Communities Conference in Nebraska. Next year’s conference will be the third year for the event, which is held over two days. This past spring, the conference was held in Hastings.
