A letter from the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality was noted and placed on file.

Patty Plugge came before the Board to discuss the opportunity of creating/adopting a Lodging Tax in Burt County. She gave a report on annual fees collected by Counties the approximate size of Burt County. The Counties collecting 2% averaged approx. $5,000 /year. Fees are collected via Lodging Facilities and Campgrounds throughout the county, with Burt County having over 100 rooms/campsites that could collect this tax. She explained to the Board that a committee would need to be formed to track this fund and to decide how the money would be spent. The Board opened up discussions and heard from representatives from the Lodging Industry: Trent Leichleiter manager of Pheasant Bonanza, Brenda Pearson owner of Gramma B’s Lodgings and Sheila Maryott owner of Decatur River Cabins. Hearing little opposition, Board Member Brummond made a motion to schedule a Public Hearing in order to further explore the Lodging Communities’ feelings on the implementation of a Lodging Tax in Burt County. Schold seconded the motion, and Chairman Morrow instructed Co. Clerk Sarah Freidel and Patty Plugge to work together to schedule a Public Hearing for August 11, 2015 to be held during the Board Meeting, with roll call vote as follows: Ayes – Morrow, Schold, Brummond, M.Connealy, Rogers, T.Connealy and Newill. Nays – none.
