COLUMBUS, Neb.-- Eastern Nebraska's Platte County is considering levying a lodging tax to create a fund to improve local attractions.

The Platte County Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing Tuesday to discuss creating a 2 percent tax to be collected at hotels, motels and campgrounds in the county. The hearing will be held at the Platte County Courthouse.

If approved, the lodging taxes collected would be used to make improvements at county attractions. Such improvements were made with a similar, short-lived tax implemented about a decade ago. That money went to a new scoreboard at the Columbus Aquatic Center and wheelchair lifts at the Platte County and St. Michael's historical museums.
