What would normally be a routine vote has a lot of interest today before the Omaha City Council as they decide whether to approve a county project to build a juvenile youth detention center as part of a courthouse annex in downtown Omaha.

All of this is sorted out in our conversation with News Channel Nebraska's Joe Jordan.
