Early this month, the Omaha Public Power District in Nebraska contributed significantly to the treasuries of the counties it serves, distributing more than $30.7 million in 2013 in-lieu-of-tax payments. The payments to 11 counties represent a new record, surpassing last year’s amount of $29 million, OPPD said. The payments are based on 5 percent of the utility’s gross revenues from retail sales of electricity in incorporated cities and towns during the previous year. County treasurers distribute the funds to school districts, cities, and other entities.
