Transportation Coalition Issues Recommendations

A 27-member Citizens Transportation Coalition says Lincoln residents want better roads.
Coalition Co-Chair Bob Caldwell says at a mayoral news conference that the city can close the 33 million dollar annual gap in transportation needs in several ways including by regular maintenance, streamlining the business process and through a local option sales tax instead of raising property or wheel taxes.


That proposal is raising alarms for the Americans for Prosperity-Nebraska group. Regional Director Brad Stevens is calling on Mayor Beutler to reject the coalition’s recommendation to raise the local option sales tax.
