Little Blue Natural Resource Districtupdated: August 2009

The Little Blue NRD’s programs and policies are directed by a 17 member, locally elected, Board of Directors. The Board meets the Second Tuesday of each month at the NRD headquarters in Davenport, Nebraska. The District employs eight (8) full-time professional staff responsible for carrying out the directives of the Board of Directors. The District also employs three full-time and two part-time secretaries who serve as district contacts in the five local Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Offices which lie within the District, plus two part-time rural water employees.

The Natural Resources District's operations are funded by a variety of sources, including: sale of conservation trees and services, assessment projects (self-supporting rural water systems), state and federal cost-sharing for projects and programs, and various grant programs. The primary source of funds however, is local property taxes. The Districts have authority to levy up to 4.5 cents per $100.00 of assessed property valuation for its operations plus 1.0 cents per $100 for groundwater management activities. The FY 2009 levy is 2.6391 cents per $100 valuation. The total FY 2009 budget is $3,116,392 and requires $1,005,432 in local property taxes.
