Taxpayers should be aware that there also may be an increase in the amount of taxes that will be required as well by the school districts, cities, villages, Education Service Unit #4, Nemaha Natural Resources District, Richardson County Ag Society and rural fire districts if the property tax requirement to fund their political subdivision's budget increases.

They are not required to be listed, or to participate in the joint public hearing if the percentage of increase is less than 2% from the prior year.

A public hearing has been scheduled for Monday, September 26, at 6:30 p.m. in Room 202 of the Richardson County Courthouse. During the joint hearing, a representative of each political subdivision will give a brief presentation on their intent to increase the property tax request more than the allowable 2 percent, and the effect of such a request on their budget.
