Demo bids, Hillcrest on county agenda

Friday, July 13, 2012

McCOOK, Nebraska -- McCook businessman Don Klein plans to address Red Willow County Commissioners about the plan to loan Hillcrest Nursing Home a million dollars to make up a shortfall in Medicare and Medicaid collections.

Klein is slated to meet with the commissioners at 10 a.m. Monday during a regular meeting.

Commissioners also will conduct a public hearing, and make a decision, on a proposal to establish an improvement fund by imposing an additional lodging tax of 2 percent.

At 9:30 a.m., commissioners will open bids for demolition of structures north of the courthouse in preparation for construction of the law enforcement center.

Members will also review letters from the McCook Police Department about dispatch services and reimbursement for dispatch services for the 2012-13 budget year, and a letter from St. Alban's Episcopal Church regarding access to the church parking lot during demolition and construction.

I am very good with the lodging tax increase. I paid more than ten bucks in taxes for one night in Omaha recently. The extra cash could help the county make improvements at the Kiplinger, fair grounds and holding events. The increase still would be less than other communities. I see the increase more of a user fee than a tax.
