Bluffs Council Approves Budget/Rejects Occupation Tax Increase On Hotels
Strang/RRN/KNEB

The Scottsbluff City Council had a full agenda Tuesday night… including a public hearing and approval of a $45.5 million dollar budget for the next fiscal year.

Under the spending blueprint, City Manager Nathan Johnson told the council Scottsbluff’s property tax levy request would equal $216 for every $100,000 in valuation, generating just over $2 million in property tax revenue.

In other action Monday evening, the council voted against a proposal to increase Scottsbluff’s occupation tax on hotel accommodations from four to eight percent.

Consideration on the sale of two city-owned downtown parking lots to a local bank and law firm was tabled for the time being…

And the council approved a resolution to apply for $200,000 in federal assistance from the Land and Water Conservation Fund program for building improvements at the 23 Club Baseball Field.
