The Sarpy County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday approved a settlement agreement regarding a lawsuit involving the County’s distribution of Omaha Public Power District payment in-lieu of taxes (PILOT) funds to local school districts. In the settlement, the parties agreed to a reduction from approximately $6.5 million outlined in the original suit to $2.7 million.

“We appreciate the open dialogue between the County Attorney’s Office and the school districts and their good-faith work toward this resolution,” said Angi Burmeister, Chair of the Sarpy County Board of Commissioners. 

The repayment of $2.7 million will be made over five years and will draw on future PILOT funds. The County will distribute the first payment in May.
