Chase County officials attend workshops
Chase County Commissioners Chuck Vette and Dave Hogsett and Chase County Assessor Dottie Bartels completed a workshop conducted in Kearney May 31 by the Nebraska Association of County Officials.
The workshop provided county commissioners, supervisors and other county officials specialized training as they prepare to begin County Board of Equalization hearings. There was also a section of the workshop that dealt with county budgets.
Among the equalization-related topics addressed were the roles and responsibilities of county officials and other individuals involved in the process, the constitutional, statutory and regulatory provisions for real and personal property valuations, recent court cases and legislative changes in the tax equalization process. The state auditor’s office proved timely information about the budget processes used in county government.
