Due to the Nebraska Legislature passing LB644 in 2021, which was amended by LB927 in 2022, if any county, city, community college, or school district seeks to increase its property tax request by more than the allowable growth percentage, such political subdivision must participate in a joint public hearing (allowable growth percentage means a percentage equal to the sum of [a] two percent plus [b] the political subdivision's real growth percentage).
Each such political subdivision had to designate one representative to attend the joint public hearing on behalf of the political subdivision. At the joint public hearing, the representative gave a brief presentation on the political subdivision's intent to increase its property tax request by more than the allowable growth percentage and the effect of such request on the political subdivision's budget. There were no items on the agenda other than a discussion on each political subdivision's intent to increase its property tax request by more than the allowable growth percentage.
The agenda for the meeting can be found above. No voting took place at this hearing; there were just presentations. After all of the presentations were done, there was a public comment period.
These political subdivisions are excluded from the portion of the Property Tax Request Act that requires participation in the joint public hearing: Villages, Fire Districts, Sanitary and Improvement Districts, Learning Communities, Transit Authorities, County Libraries, Public Building Commissions, Natural Resource Districts, Educational Service Units.
