County Assessor Schaaf Explains Rise in Some Land Valuations

The change of value notices that were sent out from the Antelope County Assessor’s Office may have some landowners in Area 3 doing a double take.

Area 3 consists of all of Grant and Cedar Townships, and parts of Logan, Elgin, Oakdale, Burnett, Elgin, Neligh, and a small piece of Blaine Township for a total of 122,000 acres. 

Of this, 65,000 acres are irrigated, 28,000 acres are dry, 26,000 acres are grass and 3000 acres consist of other classifications. 

County Assessor Gene Schaaf said there are two reasons the value increased significantly this year in Area 3.
