Trash Contract

For my #Omaha & #lnk people, here is a letter from the Omaha Mayor to the Omaha City Council.

Lincoln we are only 16,000 people away from becoming a Metropolitan Class City. Only about 6 years at a growth rate of 1% population.

We have to be aware of how our tax dollars are spent as citizens.

Arsenic in Some Bottled Water at Unsafe Levels – Consumer Reports says

Our city #lnk is over 3ppb. https://lincoln.ne.gov/city/ltu/water/pdf/water-quality-report.pdf?2018

the #EPA responded to rising concerns about the heavy metal’s health risks by lowering that level, initially suggesting 3 ppb as a “feasible” cutoff. The agency eventually settled on 10 ppb because it “maximizes health risk reduction benefits at a cost that is justified by the benefits.”

So the Government knows what is feasible, but won’t recommend it.

Lawyer Stuff

I was talking to a lawyer, who was a prosecutor in a city founded in 1833. We were discussing her previous employment.

I asked her if she still did lawyer stuff.

I think that is called practicing law.

100%

Uh, 100% of the ballots cast in #lnk didn’t vote for the tax question? https://lancaster.ne.gov/election/results/resul19A.htm

Why?
WHY?

Your Government was asking you if you wanted to raise the amount you pay in taxes and you couldn’t tell them yes or no.

No on TIF

NO on TIF, NO additional TIF projects

No extension of the current TIF Criteria

In 2017 the #TIF for the City of Omaha was $44,668,238. https://planninghcd.cityofomaha.org/images/TIF_Documents/Planning_-_2017_TIF_Annual_Report.pdf
Do we really want to extend this tax reductions for 5 additional years?
Senator @JustinTWayne has a proposed constitutional amendment.
I think this should NOT be approved by the legislature.
