We would like to propose, well before your budget discussions, that each of you—Mayor Beutler, City Council Members, County Commissioners, LES Administrative Board, and Lincoln Board of Education—implement a hiring freeze, effective immediately.
Lincoln, Neb. (January 14, 2009) The Mayor’s Taskforce on Impact Fees has released its report, making several significant recommendations. While the Taskforce made some reasonable recommendations, the LIBA Board of Directors cannot endorse rec-ommendations encouraging pre-approved wheel tax increases and raising the property tax levy. Such unchecked allowances contradict LIBA’s fundamental principles.
