Nemaha NRD Board Members

Nemaha NRD Board Members

The Nemaha NRD board of directors has 21 members, which is the maximum allowed by law. Ten equally populated subdistricts are represented by two members each with one additional member elected from at-large. Elections occur in even numbered years with one member from each subdistrict up for election each time; the at-large is elected once every four years (the next at-large election will be in 2026). Board meetings are held every month on the second Thursday at the NRD’s office at Tecumseh.

Director Sought for Nemaha NRD Board Vacancy

The Nemaha Natural Resources District is looking for someone to fill a vacancy on its board of directors. As of January 2023, a position in the eastern Otoe County/eastern Nebraska City area is vacant since no one ran for the job during the November 2022, general election.

The NRD’s board of directors will accept written applications from interested, potential directors. Applicants must be registered voters who also meet all other eligibility requirements for holding an elected office and reside within the appropriate boundaries of the vacant subdistrict. The position is a two-year term since the position was vacated within the first 19 months of the term; it will then come back up for election in the 2024 election. (NRD board members are normally elected to four-year terms during the primary/general elections in even numbered years.)

This position is in Subdistrict 4 and was previously represented by Dan Giittinger of Nebraska City who chose not to run for a second term.  It includes the McWilliams Precinct (formerly McWilliams, Rock Creek, & Otoe Precincts), portions of the Berlin Precinct (formerly Berlin & Wyoming Precincts), and portions of Nebraska City, Otoe County, Nebraska. This area includes the villages of Talmage, Otoe, Lorton, Wyoming, & Paul. The eligible area within Nebraska City boundaries is east of North 9th Street and east of South 11th Street. Dan Hodges is the other director in Subdistrict 4.

Twenty-one members serve on the Nemaha NRD board and represent 10 subdistricts, two directors per subdistrict, who are elected in alternating election years. One member of the board is elected at-large from throughout the entire District.

Nemaha NRD board meetings are held in Tecumseh on the second Thursday of each month, generally in the evening. Board members are eligible to receive $65 per diem and reimbursement of mileage and other expenses incurred while conducting NRD business.

Individuals interested in these positions should address a letter requesting appointment to the Nemaha NRD Board of Directors, 62161 Hwy 136, Tecumseh NE 68450, by February 3, 2023. For more information or detailed description of the Subdistrict 4 boundaries, contact the NRD at (402) 335-3325 or the Otoe County Election Commissioner.
