  • Deloitte agreement: On Tuesday, the Douglas County Board of Commissioners will discuss extending an agreement with Deloitte, a financial consulting firm that has assisted the county in allocating federal COVID relief money since June 2020. Deloitte would receive $250,000 to make sure the county stays in compliance when spending the second round of ARPA funding through June 30, 2023.
  • TIF: The Omaha City Council will hold a public hearing and vote on two tax increment financing projects on Tuesday. MH Landing is seeking a $390,000 loan for a new office building and warehouse at 3321 S. 72nd St., and the Union for Contemporary Arts is seeking a $354,672 loan to renovate a building at 2401 N. 24th St. to be used as the Shirley Tyree Theater.
  • South Omaha Spring Lake CRA: The City Council will vote on a resolution to create the Spring Lake Community Redevelopment Area. The CRA designation is necessary to approve TIF projects in the area.
