The city of Gering may repeal a lodging tax approved just a month ago.

The City Council Monday night decided to maintain its suspension of the tax, which is to go into effect July 1. The council will consider in two weeks a total repeal.

The tax is designed to help raise money for a proposed
multi-million dollar sports complex but the tax is opposed by
representatives of the two motels in the community.

They say nearby Scottsbluff and Terrytown have not approved a
motel tax putting the Gering businesses at a disadvantage.

Council member Larry Gibbs says since there is not support from
the other communities, he wants to discuss repealing the lodging
tax at the next meeting.
