NNRD Board Member Needed in Subdistrict 4

NNRD Board Member Needed in Subdistrict 4

Attention Otoe County residents in and near Nebraska City: the Nemaha NRD board of directors needs someone to fill a vacancy on its board of directors. The opening is in Subdistrict 4, which includes eastern Nebraska City as well as the rural area around the city and a part of southern Otoe County (links to maps of the area are included below). The position is a two-year term that would extend through the end of 2020.

Nemaha NRD board members are elected in even numbered election years, but no one filed for this seat that was previously held by Jenny Kearney from Nebraska City. Dan Hodges from Julian is the other director in Subdistrict 4. NRD board members must be registered voters and reside within the subdistrict boundaries.

The District is divided into 10 subdistricts that are represented by two directors each; one more director elected at-large from anywhere in the District rounds out the 21-member board. Meetings are held monthly on the second Thursday evening of the month at the NRD’s office at Tecumseh. Board members may earn $65 per diem for meetings and other events where they represent the NRD along with reimbursement of applicable expenses.

If you’re interested in serving on the board in this position, please send a letter to the NRD prior to the February 14 board meeting requesting appointment. Be sure to include your physical address in order to confirm your residence within Subdistrict 4.
