Legislative Community Conversion Scheduled For November 25

PONCA – A conversation about legislative issues will be held later this month in a northeast Nebraska community.

According to a release from the Center for Rural Affairs, community members are being invited for this free event on Monday, November 25. The Center for Rural Affairs will host the event held at the Ponca Library (200 West Second Street) from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.

During the 2019 legislative session, many issues were brought to attention for rural communities being a healthy soils task force, property tax reform and the beginning farmers tax credit. Those who attend will learn more about these topics and important issues for the 2020 season.
