Nebraska: Neligh mayor and city council facing petitions over annexation
Neligh Mayor Joe Hartz and councilmembers Stephanie Wanek, Ted Hughes, Leonard Miller and Dale Wilkins are all facing recall petitions (three after serving six months). Petitioners will need 163 signatures for the councilmembers and 189 for the mayor (35% for the highest vote getter in the last election) and have 30 days to collect. The issue is their approval of an annexation.
