The Papio-Mo. River Natural Resources District squanders taxpayer dollars.
A most recent example is the thousands wasted on promotional radio ads on KFAB, touting the recreational benefits of the NRD. The original purpose of the NRD was to maintain flood and erosion control. It is wasting millions on building unneeded dams, confiscating fertile farm land and land suitable for residential development, instead of utilizing low impact development, like dry dams, at cheaper cost. Shame on the NRD Board! Its budget hearing is on Thu. August 11, 7 PM at the NRD hq at 154th & Giles Rd. Call 402-551-0921 if you will support us there. Remember, liberals win if conservatives do not show up.
