The Scottsbluff City Council Monday evening received updates on every current project in the city.

Updates from Public Works Director Mark Bohl included the progress on development of a Regional Landfill, completion of the 42nd street project, the status of the 23 club project, progress on the solar project at the Lander’s Soccer Complex, the Monument Valley Pathway project, where the process is at with the 18th Street Plaza, the RFQ for school safety zones, and updates on a number of construction projects underway in the city.

The council Monday also took no action but requested further information on doubling the city’s hotel occupation tax from 4 percent to 8 percent, and the potential for an occupation tax for fireworks vendors.

The council did approve a request from Panhandle Area Development District earmarking a portion of an anticipated grant for Owner Occupied Rehabilitation to help fund a county-wide lead abatement grant.

PADD Community and Regional Planner Megan Koppenhafer the grant would provide $1 million in funds to abate lead county wide in the homes of families with children under the age of 6.
