The Omaha City Council meets on Tuesday. Here are some agenda items of note:
- A potential buyer has stepped forward for the city-owned Lerner Building downtown at 16th and Harney Streets. Since 1995, the city has owned the former home of Lerner Shops and Brodkey Jewelry. The council will vote on a purchase offer of $157,500.
- The proposed changes to the city’s dangerous animals ordinance are up for a vote. If approved, potentially dangerous animals would be dropped from that list automatically after two years of good behavior, and a $200 fee to get animals off the list would be dropped.
- The Omaha Police Department will buy 130 cruiser cameras for $1.19 million, upgrading the department’s broken-down equipment.
- The council will hold a public hearing on a sewer separation contract in north downtown along Nicholas Street between 10th and 16th Streets. City staff is recommending that Hawkins Construction receive the contract for $15.85 million.
