Cheyenne County Commissioners set mill levy for 2021-22 fiscal year

CHEYENNE COUNTY, NE — Another entity in Cheyenne County has set its tax levy for the next fiscal year. 

At their meeting Tuesday morning, the Cheyenne County Commissioners approved its budget for the 2021-22 fiscal year. 

Part of this included setting the mill levy for the next year. The three commissioners unanimously approved setting it at 0.406647. 

This is slightly lower than the 2020 tax levy set by the county, which is 0.406727. Commissioners Randall Miller and Phillip Sanders say it is the seventh year in a row they have lowered the mill levy. 

Mill levies are just one factor that determines what a property owner will pay in taxes. Property valuations also play a role. 

For residents of Sidney, the city has proposed a mill levy of 0.586371, the same as it was in the 2020 fiscal year. 

The city council will vote on whether or note to approve the mill levy at its meeting on Sept. 14.
