An annual survey has recently released municipal property tax levies for 2017-2018 and Kearney is proud to announce that it has remained the lowest property tax levy among first class cities in the state. Cities are classified as first class if they have more than 5,000 in population.

The City of Kearney has a property tax levy of .13736, or about 14¢ per $100 of valuation. On a house valued at $200,000 the City receives $280 in property taxes. This is especially significant considering the scope and level of services provided in Kearney. “This shows the value of local government to residents, the services received – streets, parks, police, fire, library, and airport - are provided with a very low property tax burden”, said City Manager Michael Morgan.

Mayor Stan Clouse said, “The City Council is very proud of our City administration and employees for once again having one of the lowest municipal levies in the state. Kearney is always in the top two or three cities in this ranking and it is a tribute to the diligence and hard work of our City employees in managing day-to-day activities of our city while ensuring our quality of life in Kearney is not compromised.”
