SEATTLE -- In its bid for the 1985 Super Bowl, the Seattle City Council has voted to waive city admissions and its business and occupation taxes for the NFL if it picks the Kingdome for the big event.

Proponents of the idea said some $300,000 in increased sales tax would offset $143,000 in lost tax revenue and another $50,000 spent on extra services such as police duty for staging the game.
