ALERT: SCC Board Votes to Raise Property Taxes by 40 Percent 

Property owners in Southeast Nebraska could be seeing much higher property taxes for Southeast Community College (SCC) next year. The SCC Board of Governors recently voted to raise its property tax ask for next year by roughly 40 percent across the 15-county service area. This is an attempt by SCC to get more revenue in place before a legislative change to replace the community college property tax with state funds on a dollar-for-dollar basis goes into effect. We need your help to push back on this excessive ask of Nebraska’s taxpayers and challenge the SCC board to set more suitable rates before the final approval meeting.
