Awards and Recognition

community of the yearThe city of Fremont was recognized at the Nebraska Diplomats Greater Omaha Regional Economic Development Celebration on Tuesday for their achievements in community growth and business partnerships.  Governor Ricketts attended the luncheon, and presented the award to Mayor Scott Getzschman.

“It was extremely exciting to be singled out for the award,” said Getzschman.  “We have a great staff, City Council, and Planning Department that have contributed, but we can’t do this without the support and collaboration of partnerships like Greater Fremont Development Council and the Fremont Chamber.  We are excited for the citizens of Fremont who can be proud of their community’s achievements and this recognition.”




“I’m really excited for the community as a whole,” said Garry Clark, executive director of the Greater Fremont Development Council.  “The community has seen several projects take place in 2017 including efforts towards housing and infrastructure, and new companies that have landed here like the Costco|Lincoln Premium Poultry processing plant and most recently, Legacy Post & Beam.  The future of Fremont is strong and vibrant.  We are grateful for the Governor and the Nebraska Diplomats’ recognition.”

The Nebraska Diplomats is a non-profit corporation that travels the globe representing Nebraska.  They are the largest economic development organization in the state that helps to foster the growth of Nebraska.
