UPDATE YOUR DRIVER'S LICENSE by October 4

Burleigh County Auditor/Treasurer Kevin Glatt reminds citizens to make sure their driver's license information is updated with the ND Dept of Transportation by October 4. North Dakota voters will need to update their address if they have moved since they last voted. New residents of the state are also to obtain their North Dakota ID by this same date. State law requires that voters must live in a precinct 30 days prior to voting in any election. This law applies whether voting by mail or in person.
To update a Driver's License or Non-driver's ID, voters can:
• Visit their nearest Driver's License site or
• Use the online tool at vote.nd.gov, or
• Call (701) 328-2600 or 1-855-637-6237

Glatt says, "Everyone who wants to vote and is eligible to vote will have that opportunity if they take simple, but important action now to be sure their identification record is in order."


The five forms of identification valid for voting are:
• North Dakota Driver's License
• North Dakota Non-driver's ID
• Tribal Issued ID
• Student ID Certificate
• Long Term Care ID Certificate

Vote.nd.gov not only has a link for updating addresses online, but also has tools for finding your voting precinct, previewing your ballot and other information.

2013 BURLEIGH COUNTY PROPERTY TAX STATEMENTS

Burleigh County is preparing to mail 39,900(+) 2013 property tax statements totaling just over $86Million (including $12.6Million special assessments).

Property owners in Bismarck will see on average a 19% property tax reduction from 2012.

The 2013 Legislature appropriated almost $860M for property tax relief. This coupled with the 2009 appropriation to school districts has reduced property taxes by almost 40% since 2009.

The 2013 property tax statements will show the state funded reductions as a decrease in the school portion of the property tax AND as a 12% State Paid Property Relief Credit.

The 19% reduction includes the property tax increase approved by the voters for the Bismarck Public School District bond issue for the two (2) new elementary schools and Legacy High School.

A 5% discount is granted if taxes are paid in full or postmarked no later than February 15th. As February 15, 2014 is a Saturday and February 17, 2014 is a Federal Holiday the discount privilege will be extended thru February 18, 2014. Payments by Credit Card or E-check may be made on-line and will include a service fee.

If you do not receive a statement by December 16, please contact the Burleigh County Auditor/Treasurer's Office at 222-6694.

THANK YOU!

Apple Creek Township Reassessment

Apple Creek Township is announcing that a reassessment of all real property in Apple Creek Township will be conducted this fall. Door-to-door inspections of all residential and commercial properties in Apple Creek Township (E of City of Bismarck) will begin in mid-September 2013. Representatives of Vanguard Appraisals, Inc., in conjunction with Burleigh County will be conducting this project.

A reassessment of all property in Apple Creek Township was approved by the Township Board of Supervisors. The purpose of the reassessment is to equalize property values so that each taxpayer is responsible for paying only his\her fair share of the property tax burden. Periodic inspection and reappraisal of property is necessary as all types of properties do not increase or decrease in value at the same rate. Some properties physically deteriorate faster than others, and in many instances similar buildings located in different areas will differ in value due to economic factors.

Data collectors, with photo ID from Vanguard Appraisals, Inc., will make interior and exterior inspections of all commercial and residential properties. They will be compiling information to be used to estimate the fair market value of each property. Info to be collected includes type of construction, type of interior finish, physical condition of the property, age of structures and exterior measurements.

No estimate of value will be given at the time of inspection.

Property owners are asked to cooperate by allowing a complete inspection of their property and providing accurate information so that a fair and equitable assessment is determined for each property.

The preliminary data collection process will begin in September. The project is scheduled for completion in January of 2014. Notice of final value estimates will be mailed to each property owner in February of 2014. Property owners will have an opportunity to meet informally to discuss their revaluation in the spring of 2014.

The information from the data collections along with a complete sales analysis, review of local construction costs and economic conditions will be carefully considered to determine value. The new assessed values will be effective for the 2014 property taxes payable in 2014.

The Burleigh County Sheriff's Office as well as the Township and County Tax Equalization Office will be apprised of the areas where data collectors will be working. They will also have a listing of all names and license plate numbers of anyone involved with the project.

If any owner has questions regarding this assessment project, they are urged to contact the Burleigh County Tax Director at 222-6691 or your Township Board of Supervisors Kerry Olson 258-8417, Ken Selzer 471-7018, or Paul Zent 224-1303.

September is National Preparedness Month
Bismarck, ND-A decade of preparedness (2003-2013); the National Preparedness Month event is a nationwide, month-long effort that encourages households, businesses, and communities to prepare for emergencies.

Burleigh County certainly has seen a variety of emergencies and disasters in the last ten years ranging from floods, fires, winter storms, power outages, and severe summer weather. It is time to prepare you, your family, and pets.

A key message in being prepared is to be self-reliant for three days without utilities, and it starts with four important steps:

  • Be informed about emergencies that could happen in your community
  • Make a plan for what to do in an emergency
  • Build an emergency supply kit
  • Get involved in community efforts

A "tip of the day" will be posted throughout September on the Burleigh County Emergency Management Facebook page: BurleighEM

Visit the Burleigh County Emergency Management National Preparedness Month website for additional information on how to become prepared for emergencies and disasters.






Children walking away from school bus
August 19, 2013


You may not see them in time…
August 20th if the first day of school for many area schools in Burleigh County.






Tips for Back-to-School Safety and Throughout the School Year
  • It is illegal to pass a school bus that is stopped to load or unload children.
  • Every vehicle shall stop before reaching the school bus when the stop arm and flashing red lights are activated. If the stop arm and red lights are not activated and the bus is stopped, proceed slowly with caution.
  • The area 10' around a bus is where children are in the most danger of being hit. Stop your vehicle far enough from the bus to allow children the necessary space to safely enter and exit the bus.
  • Be alert-children are unpredictable! Children walking to or from their bus are usually very comfortable with their surroundings. This makes them more likely to take risks, ignore hazards or fail to look both ways when crossing the street.
  • Sign up for your school's emergency alert system. Many schools have a system that will alert students, parents, and faculty in the event of an emergency (i.e. phone call, text message, email).

Burleigh and Morton Counties Issue Controlled Burn Procedures


Burleigh and Morton Counties are issuing controlled burn procedures for their residents. Landowners, equipment operators and outdoor enthusiasts are requested to take proper precautions during all open burning situations:

  • Contact the appropriate County number listed below before a controlled burn is started so that emergency responders are not dispatched for reports of a fire when it is a controlled burn. Be prepared to give your name, contact number, location of controlled burn, and anticipated duration of the burn. After the burning is completed and the fire is out, again contact this number to inform them of the completion.

    Bismarck/Burleigh Combined Communications Center: 223-9111
    Morton County Dispatch Center: 667-3405


  • Controlled burns need to be physically manned and monitored at all times. Once the fire has been started, do not walk away until the fire is completely out.

  • Be prepared if the fire gets out of hand. Call 9-1-1 immediately and have resources available to mitigate the effects (tractor, digger, shovels, etc.).


Residents are urged to follow the precautions in the ND Rural Fire Danger Guide which lists the outdoor activity guidelines for the five fire danger indices (Low, Medium, High, Very High, and Extreme). Open burning and off-road motorized travel is prohibited when the Fire Index is in the Extreme Category.

The ND Rural Fire Danger Guide is posted on both County websites and the National Weather Service posts the daily North Dakota Fire Danger Index on their website under "Fire Weather":
