Directory of County Officials in Nebraska

NACO’s 2017-2018 Directory of County Officials is a valuable resource that not only gives you names, addresses, phone numbers, fax numbers and email addresses of every county official in the state, but includes a listing of county board meeting days, NACO districts, county seats, NACO officers and directors, affiliate officers and NACO Staff.  In January, 2017 all county clerks received a copy of the latest directory intended for use by all offices in their courthouse.  The NACO Directory remains available online through this website by selecting the “County Officials Directory” icon on the homepage.  This electronic version is updated on a regular basis and will reflect any changes that may occur between publications. A printed directory is no longer available.  The next proposed printed version will be available in January, for the 2019-2020 Directory of County Officials.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact our office.

County Board Handbook

A newly revised edition of the County Board Handbook is available.  Copies of the new book are $80.00 plus $14.50 for shipping and handling.  This includes 29 chapters, approximately 550 pages of text discussing federal and Nebraska statutes, Nebraska cases and Nebraska Attorney General Opinions.  Additionally, a new binder, table of contents, index, table of authorities and 2017 supplement are included within the price.

Topics include but are not limited to:  general powers, meetings, budgets and taxation, county board of equalization, elections, accountability and disclosure, roads and bridges, jails, bonds, zoning, salaries and personnel.

This edition replaces the former County Board Handbook that was last revised in 1996 and subsequently updated nearly every year since.  The handbook contains additional discussion on issues of relevance to county board members.  It also incorporates revisions to Nebraska laws made during the 2008 legislative session.
