Hall County Board Faces Decision on Excess Revenue


GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) — Hall County officials have what other county officials might say is a happy problem: what to do with excess revenue.

Spend the $695,000 on maintenance and other needs? Cut the tax levy?

The questions arose this year because the county has an estimated $432 million in new property valuation on the books.

Supervisor Gary Quandt said at the board meeting Wednesday that if the county can cut the levy a little, "I'd like to head in that direction."

Supervisors decided to wait until their Aug. 25 budget meeting to determine whether to cut the levy.
