A member of the Papio-Missouri River Natural Resources District board has filed an open-meetings complaint with the Nebraska Attorney General, alleging that other board members met secretly to increase the 2014 budget, then approved falsified meeting minutes to cover it up.
In the October complaint, two-term board member Scott Japp asked Attorney General Jon Bruning to investigate why the property tax requirement listed in the public notice for the district’s 2014 budget is $480,000 larger than a draft version that went before a committee at a preliminary hearing in August.
