County receives total for distress warrants

LEXINGTON—Dawson County residents who have not paid their taxes on non-real estate personal property, such as mobile homes, might soon get a knock on their door from a sheriff’s deputy.

Dawson County commissioners reviewed the total for distress warrants issued by the county treasurer’s office during a short regular meeting on Nov. 1.

Treasurer Sharon Wood explained that if taxes are not paid on such things as mobile homes or improvements on leased land, she issues distress warrants which are turned over to the sheriff’s department for collection.

The total in new warrants for this year is $101,382. Re-issued warrants, or those not collected last year, totaled $2,103.

In other business, commissioners discussed in closed session four cases pending with the Nebraska Tax Equalization and Review Commission.

The board authorized deputy county attorney Kurt McBride to continue negotiations.

The next regular county board meeting will be Nov. 15.
