Cemetery maintenance tax petition now in circulation.
About 20 people are circulating the petition to form the East Cass Pioneer Cemetery District. Proponents are hoping to gather at least 1,000 signatures by May 1.
The proposed district would be that part of Cass County which is east of 84th street and south of Plattsmouth, so signatures must be obtained from the resident taxpayers in that area, says Sandra Allgeier.
About 17 Pioneer cemeteries in Cass County would be maintained using money frmthe tax. The tax would be about 10 dollars for every $100,000 of valuation.
