Sheriffs Wanting Law To Set Fees For Services

Posted: 24 December, 2012

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) – Nebraska sheriffs are planning to ask for a law that would let local county commissions set the fees they can charge for gun permits, subpoenas and other services. The sheriffs say the current fees don’t cover the expenses they incur on a daily basis, forcing counties to make up the difference with their general funds. That means the services must be paid by all county taxpayers, rather than the person requesting the service. Ogalalla Sen. Ken Schilz says he is working on a measure for the upcoming session that begins in January.
