Getting the word out about the largest public works project in Omaha's history is a major undertaking — one that has cost the city nearly $1 million over the last seven years.
This week, the Omaha City Council added to that total with the unanimous approval of a $333,750, two-year contract for additional public relations work on the sewer system overhaul. The contract is the city's fifth with Lovgren Marketing, which has been distributing information about the $2 billion-plus sewer project through public meetings, videos, fliers and even coloring books.
