Candidate Deadline for SID Elections Approaching

The deadline for candidates to file for the upcoming sanitary and improvement district elections is Monday, July 22.

SID elections in Douglas and Sarpy counties are scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 10, with a deadline for ballot returns of 5 p.m. Ballots should be mailed to district owners at least 20 days prior to the election under state statute.

Sanitary and improvement districts are limited purpose political corporations created by developers to install streets, sewer and power as well as to provide public parks. SIDs are unique to Nebraska and are similar to small municipalities. They can issue bonds, levy taxes and special assessments, and fix service rates.

SIDs are governed by a board of trustees, who appoint a chair and a clerk for the SID. They set the tax rate and oversee the district but lack the capacity to pass ordinances. The board is advised by legal, accounting, brokerage and engineering professionals.
