The Omaha City Council will look at a plan to fight state lawmakers over potential cuts in tax revenue. Omaha Mayor Jim Suttle is asking the city council to approve more than $70,000 in spending to pay a lobbyist to prevent action that could mean lower revenue for Omaha. The mayor had paid a lobbyist four thousand dollars to oppose the repeal of Omaha’s $50 a year commuter wheel fee. Now the mayor wants to fight against possible cuts in tax revenues from phone taxes and state aid. The mayor can’t spend more than $20,000 dollars without the council’s approval.
