(NRG)- The Kearney City Council met for less than 25 minutes Tuesday night with no public hearings, or regular agenda items on the docket. There were only a handful of items on the consent agenda and a couple of consent agenda ordinances for consideration. One of the consent agenda ordinances approved dealt with the formal addition of the recently approved restaurant tax into city code. The voter-approved 1 percent tax goes into effect next year with the proceeds designated for a baseball-softball field complex at 56th Street and Cherry Avenue. The occupation tax will begin on February 1, 2015 and sunset on, or before January 31, 2025. As reimbursement for the cost of collecting the tax, businesses may deduct and withhold 2 percent from the taxes of the amount due to the City. The meeting began with a couple of presentations, one from Barney Insurance on the city's insurance policy. Tim Hughbanks said the city had a good year with few claims. He says the premium increase will only be about four percent. The other presentation was from the UNK Criminal Justice Club and involved an awarding of a plaque to the city and county law enforcement for the dogs and their handler in the K-9 unit through the years.
