Gosper County receives dividend check

Last Updated on Wednesday, 29 October 2014 18:51 Wednesday, 22 October 2014 00:00

Gosper County has received a membership dividend of $2,712 from the Nebraska Intergovernmental Risk Management Association (NIRMA), the county’s property, liability and workers’ compensation coverage provider. The dividend was part of a $600,000 financial return distributed among 78 Nebraska counties and six regional area agencies on aging during NIRMA’s annual conference Oct. 9-10 in Kearney.
With this dividend, Gosper County has now received a total of $30,731 in financial returns since becoming a member of NIRMA in 2000. NIRMA issues dividends from funds no longer needed for the payment of claims and general operating expenses.
NIRMA is owned and operated by the 80 member counties and 6 area agencies on aging it serves.  This marks the 25th time since 1991 and the 19th consecutive year the program has been able to return funds, now totaling $15.6 million, to members and ultimately their local property taxpayers.
