A group of area taxpayers are unhappy with how several governmental agencies are spending their money.
With public budget hearings coming up in six different governmental agencies, the Western Nebraska Taxpayers Association met Monday night to talk about area government budgets. President Mike Groene said he was most displeased with the city of North Platte's budget and the amount of property taxes area citizens pay.
"It's the most mismanaged entity in this area," Groene said, saying the property tax rate is one of the highest in the state, "and it doesn't seem like it's changing."
