News Briefs:

Authorities say all four Neligh City Council members will face recall in a special election. Antelope County Clerk Lisa Payne says enough recall petition signatures have been turned in and verified to require recall votes on council members Ted Hughes, Leonard Miller, Stephanie Wanek and Dale Wilkinson. The recall petition affidavits cite the council members' support for annexing some property without regard for future costs. Nebraska law says the council will have 30 to 75 days to hold the election after being notified. 

Nebraska Sec. of State John Gale says it will take some time to verify the nearly 167,000 signatures turned in to repeal the law that abolished the death penalty in Nebraska, and place it on the ballot next year. Workers will sort, number, and label petition sheets then send them to county election authorities for verification as registered voters. If nearly 114,000 are from registered voters, the legislature's repeal of the death penalty will not go into effect. 

Nebraska lawmakers have kicked off a review of school funding and its impact on local property taxes, an issue that has divided the Legislature in years past. The Revenue and Education committees convened Thursday along with mediators who will try to help senators reach an agreement. Nebraska's public schools rely heavily on property taxes, and rural senators have argued that farmers and ranchers are paying more than their share because of high property values. 

About 120 area residents crowded into the Norfolk City Council Chambers Wednesday afternoon to meet with Governor Pete Ricketts. Ricketts has been criss-crossing the state, conducting town hall meetings to get citizen input on issues to be addressed in the 2016 legislative session. He says property tax is the number one concern he is hearing from citizens. 

Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse has been traveling across the state these last two weeks, holding a series of town hall meetings and says by far, the number one issue on the minds of Nebraskans is the nuclear deal with Iran. In Norfolk Thursday, Sasse said it’s a bad deal because the Iranian regime is the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism. Sasse and other members of congress return to Washington next week. 

The proposed property tax levy for the Norfolk Public Schools is $1.21 per hundred dollars of valuation, down one cent from this year and 11-cents lower than 2011-12. At a budget workshop Thursday, Associate Superintendent of Business Services Bill Robinson said aggressive refinancing of the district’s bonded indebtedness is largely responsible for the reduction in the levy. The formal hearing on the district’s 2015-16 budget will be held during the regular September 14th meeting of the Board of Education. 

The Board of Directors of the Lower Elkhorn Natural Resources District approved a budget Thursday night with about $9.7-million in expenditures. Some of the major expenditures in the budget are $125,000 for the Norfolk Recreation Trail project, $325,000 for the Maple Creek Village of Leigh paved road, $68,000 for improvements to Willow Creek Recreation Area and $1.9-million for flow meter cost share.
