NELIGH, Neb. (AP) - The Antelope County clerk says the counting of the Neligh (NEE’-lee) recall petition signatures should be finished by the end of the week.

The Norfolk Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1K81lgt ) that the petitions were turned in last week against all four Neligh council members but none against Mayor Joe Hartz.

County clerk Lisa Payne, who also serves as election commissioner, says her office has until Aug. 28 to count and verify the signatures. She says, though, that the work likely will be completed by the end of this week.

The recall petition affidavits cite the council members’ support for annexing some property without regard for future costs. The council voted in July to annex areas on the east and west ends of U.S. Highway 275 as it passes through town.
